We have eaten at Chatham Tap a number of times. It is in a great location, on the campus of Butler University. The first few times it was all good. But, the past few times the service has been nothing short of abysmal. Last night...is a good example. It was a Sunday evening, Butler students have not yet returned and the restaurant was very sparsely populated. We (a party os 2) arrived at 6 and were seated. We had to flag down a server to place our order 20 minutes later and then waited another 40 minutes (for a grilled chicken sandwich and a pizza). We heard other patrons complaining as well about the delay. My husband ordered a beer when his pizza came. By the time the beer arrived, we had finished eating and he no longer wanted it. The server was rude, to boot. And paying??? We had to find someone else to pay as our server was nowhere to be found. Think twice. There are lots of other options in the area. Sad to say, we will and we are disappointed. We had thought we'd found our favorite new place.More

There were 11 of us on a Sunday afternoon. Everyone was pleased with their food and the service was pretty good. (They do a good job with pizza too) Our only problem was that they put the tip on the bill, which is not unusual...when a large group is served. However, if the tip was figured on the food and beverage {which it should be} they charged just over 22.5% which we felt was somewhat excessive.More

We waited forty minutes to be seated after being told it was a 15-20 minute wait. Then after ordering, our food wasn’t there after we waited another 30 minutes. We gave up and left.

This is on the Butler University campus. Liked all the decor around the eatery, contributing to the theme. We ordered the porky pig wrap, cold Turkey wrap, chicken wings & Santa Fe wrap. Chicken wings were pretty good, even better with their sauce to go...with it. Cold Turkey wrap was good. Porky pig wrap was really good, enjoyed every bit of the porky pig wrap. Santa Fe wrap was also good. Staff was also very accommodating as we had to leave a little earlier because of a tour. Would recommend.More

If you go on a basketball game day/night, you need to be there EARLY! We waited for over 1/2 hour, but it was worth it. Our server was relatively new, but she tried her best to do a great job. I was impressed when the...hostess removed a couple of guys that thought they could just grab an empty table when there were at least 20 people waiting, and she was just bringing people over to it. Nice atmosphere.More

Visited 2 different times that were 2 weeks apart. Both times we were immediately sat and then waited about 10 minutes to be greeted by our server. There was then about a 15 minute wait to place our food order. We then waited 35-45 minutes...for our food to arrive and for both visits we had to leave before our food arrived. So, do not know how long the food would have taken had we stayed. And for both visits, we were expected to pay for our drinks and the tables around us were suffering the same fate of not being greeted and not being served. Meanwhile, they continued to seat new tables even though they were unable to properly take care of either existing or new customers. My issues are: horrible service, lack of communication at the front door, lack of accountability and empty stomachs. I received a response from Will, General Manager/Operating Owner, that a sign has been added at the front door that it may take 30 minutes to receive the food and that they will stop seating people. That’s something, but I am surprised they believe a 30 minute wait for food is acceptable (even if they admit it) and that their focus is not to fix their problems. But, they have a different perspective on how a restaurant should be run.More

The food is good..the service is slow!! I don’t know how this place is going to survive based on the slow and bad service they routinely provide. My last visit I needed fresh napkins and when I asked the hostess she was too busy on...her phone and basically told me to go get them myself off of the sever stand. I probably won’t be coming back here!!!More

Love the atmosphere - comfortable, casual. Good selection is great with super interesting twists on the usual. My favorite is the pear and gorgonzola sandwich!

I had lunch hear with a friend and was reminded what a great location on the edge of the Butler campus this is for catching a meal before a mid-northside event, particularly anything happening at Clowes Hal or the fieldhousel. On the retail level of...a parking garage, the restaurant is large and airy, with industrial-style decor which is likely loud when full, but quiet and cozy for a Monday, mid-winter lunch. Has an extensive and creative menu of appetizers, burgers and sandwiches with a shorter selection of salads, pizzas and entrees. As you'd expect, a great selection of beers, both draft and bottled. Everything was well prepared and the Joel's service was solid. The bill was $35 for lunch for two including beer. A very good choice for a casual dinner before going to a performance at Clowes. My only beef (pun intended): they had a half portion option of fish and chips on the menu (thank you), but no burgers smaller than 8 oz. for people like me with a smaller appetite.More
