dinner and drinks were great!

Lots of selection in beers. Unique items to eat plus all the good ones you like for a tavern. Seafood Mac and Cheese fantastic! The BBQ homemade potato chips that come with a lot of meals are very very spicy. Food well made not just grilled.

The old bank building for the Norfolk Tap Room really makes the place, however the beer selection was rather disappointing. Pretty surprising given there are 100 beers in bottle, and a number on tap, however I thought that the local craft beer market was surprisingly poorly represented -- and everything else was pretty mainstream macrobeer. Overall the staff was very... More

We walked here after going to the beer festival and sat at the bar. I can't remember the bartenders name but he was friendly and made some great suggestions since it was our first time there. We ended up splitting this French dip and a grilled cheese smothered between a meaty burger pattu---yum!!

I stopped in Saturday evening after the Virginia Beer Festival with my wife and in-laws. We were looking for a good burger and did not find them here. Prices are astronomical for a burger (with no sides). The burgers themselves were nothing special, either. My wife and I both asked for Medium and they came out well done. Not even... More

This establishment was within walking of my hotel and decided to try. Sat at bar, bartender introduced himself and his companion and said if I needed anything, let them know. Service was phenomenal. Dishes were cleared as soon as I was done, and as my beer was near the end, I was asked if I needed another. Nice attention. Like... More

I contacted Norfolk Tap Room for a large group reservation based on tripadvisor reviews. I had 30 people in our group, separate checks. It's not easy to find a place that will deal with large groups on separate checks on a busy Saturday night. When we arrived, they didn't have our group reservation. The staff quickly sprang into action and... More

Many on tap and a wide selection on the menu. Take your time and ask questions. Maddie, our waitress, was very helpful. We had several appetizers which went well with our selections. Specialty cocktails too if beer is not your thing.

Perhaps the best burger I have ever had. I got the bacon cheeseburger with cheddar. Spices infused in the burger a juicy even well done. Recommend the Devils Backbone beer. Belgium blond beer with a little bite

Met my wife for an after-work evening out at this fantastic establishment. The food was absolutely spot on and the service was fantastic. The Roast Beef sandwich with au jus is delicious and plentiful. You will not leave hungry. I highly recommend this place...it has everything going for it...food, service, atmosphere...you will not be disappointed.
