We stopped at Norfolk Tap Room after a political rally on a Saturday afternoon. There was a good sized crowd, for a Saturday. Yet the service was excellent. The selection of beers and meals is very good. Our fish and chips and lobster bisque were fine, indeed. The ambiance is a combination of casual and early 20th century business. The... More
