Walk into the Tap Room and it's a neat place for lunch. The weather in San Marcos is a bit on the cool side for a mid July day in Central Texas. We sit down and the place is freezing cold. I mean not just a little cold but freezing cold. I look around and people have their hands between... More

We stopped in here after church one Sunday for lunch and a brew. The place was packed with college kids, which is normal since it is in a college town. The selections of tap beers was great. We were especially interested in the beer blends--mixing two beers together. Although we didn't try any, we will the next time we visit.... More

This is the place to go for Great Beer in the area. Travis really knows his stuff, and is quite friendly and approachable. Wish we hadn't just eaten, the food looked and smelled great too.

First of all if you are a big burger fan you need to come here. The burgers are fresh and tasteful, I personally think the bread makes them the best in town also the fries of course! And try the ribs you'll thank me later👍

Anyone who has not tried the ribs at Tap Room are missing out. Consistently the best in town. Burgers are not too shabby either! Suprisingly good food and quite the variety of beers.

I've been living in San Marcos for about a year and a half and I absolutely love this place. Coworkers and I will come here after a long day at work and we're never dissatisfied. The beer is awesome, the ppl are fun, and the burgers are one of a kind. Definitely recommend this place.

If you get a chance try their burgers. Keep in mind it is a bar in a college town. Loud and no frills atmosphere.
