We enjoyed our time at Taps. Good beer and ceviche.

They have a good selection of seafood and steaks. The sourdough bread is great But you do have to ask for it. My husband and I split the surf and turf with our own appetizer, the steak could have been bigger but the 18 oz lobster trail was the biggest I've ever seen. The service was great!

Great food! I had the filet mignon. It was nice and thick and cooked perfectly. I like that the dinner comes with a veggie and potatoes. Another in my party had the "surf and turf" and the lobster was HUGE! Only complaint is minor. The waitress dropped off the check and then disappeared for what seemed an eternity. We had to flag her down from across the restaurant. She should have checked on us to see if we were ready to pay...we were!

The restaurant experiaence was absolutely marvelous. The food was fabulous and the waiter and hostess and all the personnel that waited on our table was wonderful. The waiter we had was serving all of the tables and he did a fabulous job keeping his cool. The whole crew worked well together attending to our needs. Great personalities, professional, and classy! 3 of us ordered the sampler and 1 of us ordered steak! The price was extremely reasonable for the service and the quality of the food. I will be back soon!

Both food and service were not quite as good as they have been during most of our prior visits.

Drinks are SO overpriced and they don't put anything in them.
Had chicken, and it was so dry, I couldn't eat it and had to send it back.
May be ok for fish, but if you're not a fish eater, would suggest other better nearby options.

We hadn’t been to brunch in a few months. The food selection and service were a big disappointment. With so many other great brunch spots we probably won’t be going back to Taps.

Our waitress did not give us information about the prix fixed menu. We discovered it after our meal was over. It cost us an additional $50 and we ordered the very same entree, soup and dessert. Not awesome customer service by far.
