Went for a day trip to the Chesapeake. Stopped for crabs at the Tap Room. Delicious! Also had the cole slaw and fries with a pitcher of beer! Could not finish, but the waitress was kind enough to keep the crabs in the fridge for us until we were ready to go! Would recommend this place if you want crabs!

Weekend without the children, looking for a nice place to enjoy lunch. Crabs may be local but at $68 per dozen, certainly over priced. To start, we ordered two bloody marys (watered down tomato juice and horseradish) and one dozen steamed clams. Clams were tasteless and rubbery, served only with melted margarine. Asked for the bill, total was $32.20!!! Went... More

Tried this local restaurant when we stayed at a local B & B. If you are in the mood for fresh shrimp, crabs or lobsters, this is the place for you. It is very rustic, you get a wooden mallet and crack your own. But everything is super fresh and delicious.

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

Excellent service. Best Crabs Ever!!! We visit this place every time we are in Cheasapeake City it is actually the reason we come to stay at the Bed and Breakfast that are in this quaint little town.

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

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