Sunday Brunch reasonably priced ($39.99 each). Low price is mostly because they have filled their brunch buffet with less expensive high carbohydrate items like potatoes and pastas. They do have a carving station (beef and pork loin). So, I guess, in combination with the plethora of starches, I'd categorize it as a traditional 'meat & potatoes' kind of brunch. Overall,... More

Found this brewery on Trip Advisor (on a 4-day flight layover). Sat at the bar. Had a flight of 4 beers, each one very good. Accompanied with an appetizer of Lobster Dumplings, which were great. Order the Mediterranean Sea Bass special. Very good flavor, but slightly over cooked. Friendly staff. Overall, nice brewpub.

Recently wanted a quick bite before flying out of LAX.....a business partner suggested stopping here as it was on the way to the airport. Sat at the bar and enjoyed the food and the drinks selection. The service was excellent...very friendly and engaging but not over the top. Would definitely eat there again...

Taps is a great choice of a restaurant for many occasions: business, first date or large group gatherings. Appetizers (lobster ravioli and calamari) were done right. Bread and butter are continuously served in abundance until food arrives. Drinks are mixed to perfection. Both beef cuts and seafood are sublime! You and your guests will not be disappointed!

I really enjoyed my this restaurant, I went for an late lunch or early dinner meeting with a large group, the ambience is dark lighting, so I do suggest this may be best to go at night with a more intimate crowd. However; it was a great experience, the food and service was wonderful. I would recommend this place to... More

4 of us went to eat dinner on a Sat night. The restaurant is very nice and service.was good. The steaks were a little tough and had a lot of fat on them. For the price they should have been better. But we still had a nice night.
