We went to Taps Fish House & Brewery in Brea, CA for our anniversary. The service was spot on, probably the best I've ever experienced in a restaurant. The Beer Sampler was great, appetizers very good, and the Wine List was very impressive. The Entree's were excellent, and the dessert was way good. The wife and me were very impressed... More

It's certainly a consistently good place to go - especially like the Sunday brunches, but it IS pretty pricey. Might not be the best place for young children. Their beers are consistently tasty as is their seafood entrees. On the brunch, I'd steer clear of most of the entrees that are on the lower level over the heat. They are... More

A friend and I enjoyed the Creme Ale and split a couple of appetizer specials and were not disappointed. Great Sports Bar feel

I am rating Taps only on their Happy Hour. I have not had dinner there but have heard it's excellent. Their Happy Hour is from 4-7 pm, which is nice since we usually can't get to a restaurant before 6 p.m. They have nicely discounted beer, wine, and martinis (their lemon drop martini is a favorite), and the service is...

The food is good and the service is excellent. The location is convenient for access and parking and they have an excellent selection of beer. What more is there to say?

A classic all round 'NICE' place. Fine for that dinner out evening before the show, birthday party or other such celebration. Not for romantic love birds seeking quiet spot. Food, service alright but prices are a bit past acceptable. Casual attire, lousy parking, weekends are crowded so get a reservation, kids are fine, noisy, outside patio in perfect on summer... More

We have this wonderful restaurant in our small city just south of the LA County line-we are still in the OC and hope others around will take a trip into Brea, not only for the mall, but to try out our great group of restaurants. I put TAPS at the top of the list. The menu has something for everybody.... More

I came here for a Sunday brunch, and the food was really great. I started with a seafood omelette that was utterly delectable. I had my fill of shrimp cocktail, blueberry pancakes, roast beef, bacon, sausage, salmon and the never ending mimosas, among other things. They had a variety of fine desserts, and I had my favorite creme brulee. They... More

I went to dinner here with three business colleagues. It is somewhat pricey - $38 for the seabass dinner and $45 for a steak dinner so just a heads up. We started with fantastic bread and dipping sauce, then shared a dozen oysters which were fabulous and juicy and tasty. Two of us also had the Lobster Bisque soup as... More
