Had some steamed crabs for lunch on a Monday. The crabs were nice size and full. They should have been for $ 85. I was assured they were freshly steamed but they had the taste and texture of reheated ones. But what can I expect on a Monday morning. Friend had fried oysters and said they were good.

Stopped in to get a bite and brew. Food was great. Had local ale and it was good too. Service was excellent. Location in center of town was appreciated.

We enjoyed eating at the Tap Room. It is a laid back space where you can get hard shell crabs, etc. They do not accept credit cards.

This place is a dive period. They only take cash, the decor is basic, the beer choice limited, and the food luke warm.

If you like being served with a smile, forget this place. The crabs are mostly imported from who knows where ? They are Big and Meaty though. and they come with a very Big Price tag!

We only ordered sandwiches a Crabcake & Oyster, it comes with chips, but we ordered fries. The bag of chips is a joke we taken them along and when opened them later on they had about 5 whole chips and some broken crumbs. Although the crabs others were ordering looked awesome and others were commenting they were full and good.....pack... More

My sister and I stopped here to have some nice, fat, steaming crabs. We both ordered the AYCE $45.95 'special.' What a disappointment! The crabs were barely warm, flavorless, small and pretty dirty (more so than crabs usually are). My guess is that they were old crabs that had been around for awhile. The crab soup, salad, and corn were... More

We found the Tap Room by chance and the lure of crabs and beer was enough for us to give it a try. Big mistake. The service was decent, friendly and, while not exactly prompt on a moderately paced Thursday evening, it was acceptable and friendly. That and their $10 pitcher of Goose Island IPA got the second star. The... More

Still the best place for crabs in the Upper Chesapeake Bay area. $44.95 per person for all you can eat crabs, jumbo shrimp, fries and corn on the cob. A great value, and the crabs are full and a very nice sized (No. 1)..Service was excellent. Left the restaurant...full and smiling. Nice job by all.
