This restaurant is right down the street from me. There are many places to eat nearby and it is a competitive market for sure. Taprock has an excellent beer list and some very talented "BEERistas". They know their product. The food menu is great too....More

Casual- outdoor patio is cute. Great beer menu. Love the Apple Burger!! Good prices- quick service. If they have love music it can be loud inside. They’re ranch dressing is also AMAZING
