“Excellent seafood and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

I was a little wary after seeing a few negative reviews on TA but after experiencing Taps, I don't know what they were talking about. The food was excellent and the service fantastic. An associate and I shared the manila clams and Maine lobster dumplings for appetizers. For the main course I had the cioppino and my associate had the proscuitto wrapped yellowtail. Every dish was excellent and really tasty. Portions were good and a lot of attention was paid to us by our waitress. This is a place worthy of coming back to. And oh, by the way, this is a brewery so we had to have the beer. That was also great. Can't say that about every brew pub or restaurant with a brewery.

The food is very unique so we love to go there for a special treat. It is decorated great inside and the bar is a nice place to sit and enjoy dinner as well.

“Awesome Sunday Brunch!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Truly one of the best Brunches I've ever experienced. The food selection was Amazing! From the omellett bar and fresh seafood to the dessert table. The live music was a hit & the beer / champagne option was also a plus!

“Corporate food pretending to be a local brewpub”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

If you have ever been to a gastropub in the UK or a REAL brewpub this place will offend you, if you have never been outside a southwestern megacity, you won't know any better and will probably love it.

Whether it's the oyster bar, the cocktail bar, the excellent variety of seafood or the tender steaks and chops, this place always satisfies!
