Neighborhood Bar With Great Food

Great neighborhood bar with great food and a nice atmosphere. This is not your average bar food. Try the burgers, salads, and wings. Extensive beer selection.

This place used to be great, had good bartenders, good prices, good food and good drinks. Unfortunately it has gone straight downhill. Prices of food and drinks have gone straight up while other place's prices have remained stable, the good bartenders have all left and the ones there now don't care about anyone they serve, the food is now just...

After a tiring day of driving 5 hours and touring the Abita brewery, I was ready for a meal and a few more beers. The Columbia St Tap Room fit the bill perfectly. There are about 30 taps and an equal number of bottled beers. I drank local, trying a few from the Covington Brewery. The crowd at the bar... More

Your average bar and restaurant with mostly bar food (plus specials). It has an old timey feel to it, has a stage for music groups in the evening. Looks dated, but it was clean. Service was excellent.

One of the best, large burgers in the area which compliments the significant numbers of beers available.

Located in the Columbia Street Tap Room building, this is an elegant place for a great meal. The menu varies depending on what fresh fish and vegetables are available. Our party enjoyed a number of fine dishes the night we ate there including swordfish and baby drum. Good drinks are available to accompany your meal. Not a huge place. Service... More

music on weekends. Fun place to meet. Local hangout. Very casual. Burgers are great. I am going to write a separate review for Seilers which adjacent to the Rap Room. Two entirely different atmospheres.

If you are in the mood for a great burger and a delicious brew, head into the Tap Room. You might get lucky and find yourself there on a night with some live music as well. Covington is a little hit and miss with nightlife--sometimes things are really cranking, other times all is quiet. I've lived here for five years... More

This bar had a fairly good selection of beer on draft. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Also serves good burgers.

Ok... To give benefit of doubt, I haven't eaten here. A group of 6 went in during Mardi Gras weekend. We were told anything we wanted had to be cash only. We were told that we could go to an ATM so we could get cash. The employees of which none looked old enough to be serving alcohol, were extremely... More
