Had great service and good food. The staff was friendly and the view of the bay was great. I also recommend trying the dirty banana!

One of the worst restaurant experiences ever! They were out of many items on the menu. Nice waiter who was trying hard but the kitchen confused all the orders for our party of eight. The appetizers were brought to the table last. Main courses were...too salty and cold. Multiple meals didn’t arrive until we specifically reminded the waiter that several people had not received their entres. Live music was horrible and loud. Avoid!!! Tried to speak to the manager who was not really responsive and asked me why would we leave a bad review, since it would affect everyone’s livelihood?! Basically we threw $300 down the drain!More

We had dinner there a few nights ago. Given the covid-related worker shortages, I really didn't know what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. The place was exceptionally well-staffed and the service was great. The food was also really good with some very interesting...options. We had an appetizer that was a cross between tacos and sushi - very tasty. There was a fish & chips appetizer that was actually fish breaded with crushed potato chips - also tasty, but a bit too salty. Other highlights were mac & cheese topped with pulled pork - very decadent and a BLT with enough bacon for 2 sandwiches. They also had a crab stuffed avocado on the menu that I really wanted to try but couldn't due to a shortage of Maryland Blue Crabs. That was very disappointing but not their fault. Maybe I will get to try it next summer.More

Outdoor seating on the water...... attentive staff.... great food and drinks. We both had the Ahi Tuna Nachos - VERY GOOD At first I was disappointed because I originally wanted the Crab Avocado, but midday on a Sunday they were out of crab....... ummmm hello???...The tuna lunch made up for it, though.... it was bursting with flavor and the chef seared the tuna perfectly. I do believe I will have to go see if they have the crab back in stock... ;-)More

Taphouse was next door to our hotel (Aloft) so chose for convenience originally, but loved the outdoor dining on the bay, nice atmosphere, good service, and the food was very good as well. Had the pulled pork tacos, very good, and sweet potato tots- little...greasy but also tasty. Daughter had Chicken Bruschetta and said it was very good also. Would definitely revisit.More

Service was great and the food was delicious. I highly recommend the cream of crab soup. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the old bay chips didn't have much of an old bay taste.

I've been to the Taphouse dozens of times. I have my favorites, burger, pretzel with mustard and beer cheese! or a taco. They have so many beers on tap, local, fresh, European, lager, IPA, wheat, even though my go to is bourbon, lol. Staff and...especially bartender are always welcoming, knowledgeable and nice. Great spot for a variety of occasions and crowds.More

This restaurant was recommended to me. Inside the restaurant seemed crowded, but we were able to order to go and eat outside on the patio for COVID safety. They had not yet opened the patio for waiter service. The food was good. The turkey club...was huge and all of the food, from the cheesesteak to the Bavarian pretzels, was pretty good. The view was lovely from the patio. Bathrooms were clean. If you are interested in take out for dinner, they do stop taking orders at 6 pm.More

We met our college daughter for dinner. She has a dog that was allowed on the outside deck. The food was fantastic, and the staff was great! Views from the deck are amazing. Will come again.

We selected the 45th Street Taphouse for a midafternoon Friday lunch in April. The dining area and bar front on the bay, and sunsets are probably pretty. They seem to have a lot more taps behind the bar than there were beer selections on the...menu. We were seated promptly, as there were few other patrons, and our server was pleasant and efficient. I had a crab cake sandwich (I ordered it without the roll), and my wife had a "build your own" grilled chicken sandwich. My crab cake lacked seasoning--as is typical of most restaurants--and was not memorable. My wife found the chicken to be gristly and did not finish it. If you get the Old Bay chips, be prepared for plenty of Old Bay.More
