I love this bar/restaurant for many reasons, but the top reason is: vegan options. With an "s" as in plural. Not one, not two, but many. There are ALSO options my non-vegan hubby enjoys. Each time we are here, we both try something new. Food is served hot and tastes so good.

Ok, I would go back to the Memphis Taproom for their appetizers...seriously...my first try at fried pickles and they were awesome...the cheese and hot links another great appetizer... one can just go for appetizers and drinks...you might also want to try their pork sandwich with cheese and spinach...wow...really good! Ruth, one of the nicest people around....

I found the Memphis Taproom here on TripAdvisor, and decided to try it after all the good reviews. It is a local place in a busy neighborhood with street parking. My daughter and I sat at a table in the bar and the bartender gave us awesome service. We asked him for beer recommendations and he suggested two based on... More

We went to the Memphis Taproom for Sunday brunch. The menu is somewhat limited, but the food was excellent and the service was outstanding.

We were heading to the Pterodactyl gallery to see this Kennedy exhibit and needed a place to grab a bite nearby, about 1.6 miles was this incredible little Resturant. Innovative and creative ideas on the menu, a few yummy grilled vegetarian ideas along with fried chicken and even a refreshing kale salad. The bartender was this wonderful women who introduced...

My husband saw this spot featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives on Food Network. We were looking for a place to have lunch with our teen sons to celebrate the end of school so we thought we would check it out. Don't be fooled by the exterior of this bar/restaurant. It is a place you might easily drive by unless... More

Been here a few times. Love the atmosphere, quick service, tasty food, and great selection of beer. Would like to tey the beer garden this summer!

Went on a Sunday early evening after a Phillies game. Beer Selection was fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed the Fried Avocado Tacos and the Chili Mac and Cheese. Did not get a chance to indulge in the beer garden due to time constraints. The staff was amazing. Very informative and polite. Will def be back! Great Job!

We went because of Philly Beer Week.Memphis Taproom is small, it is reminiscent of the 'old taprooms' of the 1960s, narrow and long. However, they have a beer garden outside that serves beers and a variety of hot dogs. We sat inside, the beer menu was large, but it was No Repeat Beer Week and I had a Rye Chocolate... More

We went to the Memphis Taproom because we had seen it featured on GF's "Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives". We shared the fried dill pickets, a cheesy mushroom grinder, and the infamous smoked barbecue coconut club sandwich. Absolute heaven! All came with the best french fries. The beer selection was nice, and we sampled a couple of unknowns to our satisfaction.... More
