The Taphouse is a modern tavern. Our menu and craft beer selection make it the perfect place for lunch and a quick pint. Or settle in with some friends and watch the big game, then stick around for great live music and dancing.

They have a good menu and friendly service, but they were out of multiple beers and the dessert I wanted to order, which was disappointing.

At first the Hostess said that our reservations were not made.....(??) Later at the table, we "lost our waitress" after only ordering "1" drink and after our meals were served. She seemed to attend to other patrons and ignore us. Then she made up the excuse that the restaurant had "run out of wings on Wing Night" and had to tell everyone....problem is, we couldn't see or locate her… in fact, we had to get up from the table and go ask for her....disappointing as this was a Birthday celebration too. I have been here on several occasions both booking through OT and not, this was very disappointing.

Worse experience ever. It was my friends bday they ruied it completely. Forst a lady promised me over the phone about the campaign ballons then the staff disagreed. Moreover it took me 3p mints to just get hold of a waitress n order
Drinks are useless its like just water with lime and little color. I would never suggest anyone to go there. Specially if you have a spcl occasion never try it

We went for dinner on a Saturday, well before the live band / dancing starts. The food was really good, worth the price. Calamari was the only big miss. Overall, a great time.

Overall, The Taphouse was a great experience. The food and service was good and the Tuesday night entertainer Andrew Christopher was excellent. Our friends enjoyed the evening as well. Nice to see the upgrading and effort that has changed this bar into something much more wholesome which appeals to everyone!!

Worst experience ever. I reserved a table in advance for 10 people. I also purchased my tickets in advance. I waited in line for over a hour. On top of that the table I received only was able to accommodate max 5 people. They split the reservation into two tables and the other table was given away to another party who had no reservations. Nothing was done by management even after several requests. I have a lot of friends and family who do many events whether it be social or professional. And I will not be recommending this place to anyone . My friends or I will not be returning to taphouse again for any event.

I had reserved a table for ten individuals as it was my birthday. We were greeted kindly. However, it took the waiter quite some time to bring us the menus and drinks upon arrival (Approx. 45 minutes for the drinks).

I came here with a friend for lunch more so out of curiosity; I had not set foot in the place since its prior reincarnation as the Mirage nightclub.

The place was on the quieter side when we first sat down for lunch but as time passed I was happy to see many other people walk through the door. I think we must have been early given the generous amount of snow on the ground. Settled on trying the West Coast Express Salad, true to what our waitress said, it was a good combination of filling you up and a healthy choice. Couldn't resist having the Apple Galette for dessert; flaky pastry, warm gooey apple filling complimented with vanilla ice cream. Gobbled the dessert up in a blink of an eye!

Though we went for lunch, I can see this as a spot that is good for hanging out with friends for lunch and dinner, (the table next to us was celebrating a birthday) in a hip neighbourhood hideaway.

I have friends who have frequently dined at TapHouse with their son, who was under the age of 4, and they suggested our group of three and a 7 month should come here for brunch. When we arrived they sat us and then informed us that children between the ages of 0 - 4 are 'unwelcome' in the restaurant, as a result we did not dine. I do appreciate this is a pub atmosphere but keep your practices consistent and work on the delivery of your message. Being told you are 'unwelcome' in this restaurant may not be the best way to communicate your message. As well if you do have restrictions, including it on the opentable reservation site or on your website may be helpful.

I had an awesome time celebrating my bday at Tap House Surrey. Everyone there is super nice the servers were great and the DJ really killed it with music and karaoke. Atmosphere was so much fun and encouraging ... Would definitely go there again soon and I recommend it to any group of friends to go there for hangouts and special occasions. 5 star service and thumps up!!! Amazing place!

Waitress was very friendly and helpful. The location we were seated at was quite cold, I was tempted to put my coat over my legs. We ordered drinks and food including one appetizer. The appetizer was delivered with our meals instead of ahead of the meals. This was our first time there, so we'll try it again as there's some interesting dishes we want to try.

Went for advertised thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings!
Food wasn't hot, gravy wasn't hot, Brussels sprouts were raw and beer was warm!
Asked for cooked sprouts ( only veg provided) and still came back raw-couldn't get a fork in it.
Disappointing as their regular menu is usually good.

The hot chicken wings, are perfect. You have nailed the flavour for the 'franks hot sauce' wings. The number of wings to price ratio could be better.

Our service was terrible the waitress was not very good. We ended up getting the manager to help us numerous times (she was lovely and very helpful). We got to the point where we just started going out the bar ourselves as we were always waiting for drinks. Also she put everyone on one bill so it made the end of the night people settling bills a nightmare. I don't think I would go back

Great ambience, lovely servers but very limited menu and disappointing food. For its location and name, the place could be a gem just by offering a variety of food options to dine in and making sure the food actually tastes good. There are a lot of similar pub and grills around which offer much nicer food that is sumptuous and presented beautifully.

Everything was good I just found them refusing us entry with out Id a hassle and caused us to be late.
Also no one had mentioned this to me as it was my very first time being there for my birthday....also nothing special offered as I was there to celebrate.
But the food was good and I may go back just for that reason.

We had a great evening dinner, on a special occasion.
The Wine & Beer list is great, the Food Menu is just great, with a good variety of everyone's favorites including burgers, steaks, hot wings, roast chicken, etc. the list is well thought out.
The chef is to be complimented, everything was just perfect. Service is friendly and efficient.
We enjoyed our evening, and would recommend the Tap House as a great neighborhood place to meet, with a huge sports screen and lively entertainment. We will return.

Very nice atomsphere. Restaurant and bar. Nice that you can come for dinner and then stay for dancing. Food was delicious, fast service, great value for the $. One thing to note is that if intimate conversation is required the place is very noisy and it is difficult to hear. I, unfortunately, was sat next to the speaker on my first visit and couldn't hear anything my friends were saying. It is a great and fun atmosphere but they could have turned the volume down a couple of notches during the dinner hour.
