The Tap Room can be 3/4 star depending upon what you are looking for. If your aim is fine dining, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a traditional Chesapeake Bay meal, steamed blue shells, or Old Bay favorites you will not be disappointed. Their weekend specials are outstanding. The drink selection is a little... More

The tap room is away from the water and is what the name would imply, a nice little place for drinks and something to eat. Have been there three times for lunch, and each occasion it was during the week so it was not a problem to get a seat. The service was responsive, the food was good, and the... More

We were the only customers and the indifferent waitress could have been more helpful explaining the protocol of ordering crabs. Fortunately, she did demonstrate how to crack them when they arrived while still not comprehending that we we're complete novices and would have appreciated some more guidance. Her personality changed completely with all smiles and chit chat when some local... More

My parents were visiting for the 4th of July holiday, and we went took them out for dinner and fireworks. Saw The Tap Room and thought it would be our kind of place. Mostly, the food wasn't bad--my crabs were good, my husband thought his crab cake sandwich wasn't too bad, my dad thought his soft shells were good, but... More

Old tap room. Clean. Good Food. Good service. Not fancy. Have stopped here many times over the years. You always know what to expect. The Maryland crab soup is wonderful. I always get it. Also the fries with old bay. mmm good.

Went there for lunch, great value, great food. Be warned, they do not take debit or credit cards, or checks. They have a sign at the door. The food is great and the waitress was very friendly.

Our memorial day dinner. We got the dozen garlic crabs, and they were ok. I have never had crabs before, but from what my boyfriend said because they were covered in butter and garlic they were wet making it harder to eat. The old bay fries were nothing special. The waitress was ok, not very friendly, and when we asked... More

We loved this little bar with crabs and cheap pitchers of beer. The crabs can be a little pricey but it's a great little no frills place to eat crabs.
