Traveled to Southington this weekend for work. Searched Trip Advisor to see what was close and this place seemed to meet my criteria : suggested good food, beer, service, and proximity to my hotel/ location.
I visited on a Friday at about 5:30 pm. Given all of the reviews, I decided to arrive at that time. The place is rather small and there was a HUGE line by the 6-7 timeframe. So, at 5:30 walked right in and got seated.
Staff was extremely nice and we were also greeted by the manager on duty. Friendly guy who explained the Wood and Tap 'history' and asked why I was in the area. I can respect that, since I try and visit the local places when traveling on business, and it adds to the experience.
So, the food. Lives up to the reputation. It was awesome. One complaint, we had the app of crab dip, wanted to hold off on one of the ingredients and was told it wasn't possible as they were already mixed in. I get the whole "prep" idea, but that was kind of a turn off.
I ordered a steak and it arrived exactly as ordered. My girlfriend had the fall off the bone half rack of ribs and the sweet potato fries. Both meals were perfect, tasty, and well worth the price. We sampled a few of the local beers. This is always a treat since I get to taste different things.
Place offers HH from 4-7 weekly which was pretty awesome. I heard there's a 10pm to close HH too. The beers were good and the prices were rather reasonable. I'm use to the high prices from the Philadelphia area.
Overall, this place lived up to the high reputation, and WILL return to this establishment if i'm in Southington again. Thanks for the positive experience.
