Casual seafood

Good seafood, great crabs served with mallets and paper on the tables. Dingy atmosphere but no one goes for the ambiance .

Hubby and I went to the Tap Room last night for the first crabs of the season, a belated birthday dinner and a date night; the night before I called to confirm AYCE crabs and spoke to Debbie. I asked about AYCE crabs and told her when we were thinking of coming. She asked how big a party we would... More

We had crab cake sandwich. There was NO flavor. Everything was frozen. We will not go again. The server was nice. The handicap facilities were poor.

First time at the Tap a Room will be our last. I guess if you get crabs, it may be OK. Crab cakes were so so, over seasoned with Old Bay. I like to taste the food, not all seasoning. Coleslaw was over seasoned with horse radish and basically inedible. Even the fries were layered in Old Bay. Shrimp linguini... More

If you have the time and inclination to sit and pick a crab - this is your place! Very casual but good food.

The Tap Room is the "cash cow" the has been in CCty for a long time, and it is responsible for building The Chesapeake Inn. The Tap Room looks like something that just could not do that...However, it did. The Tap Room offers... More

Funky old building that was supposedly, according to our waitress that had been there 35 years, part of the old brothel back in the 1800's. Fantastic, big ol' blue crabs in Old Bay. Not usually a fried fan but the table wanted mushrooms and onion rings. They were both nicely done with a good batter and not greasy. Fair beer... More

We've been coming to The Tap Room for over 20 years , about an hour and a half from home. It's worth it every single time. From the Ice cold beer to the sizzling fries , the food never disappoints. But the real reason we make our annual trek is for the delicious CRABS ! Depending on the time of... More
