Laid back bartender and very easy to chat with. He was able to recommend several other bars to check out while in town and even some food suggestions. We were some of the first customers for the day and just wanted to try a couple...More

this place has the best mussels and oyster Rockefeller, it was so good we order more, the broth the mussels were in you could just drink that right up it was simply amazing. They also have awesome happy hour drinks for $5

Stopped in here to have a cigar and have beer. I thought I'd kill some time. Typical college run down pub. Staff is nice enough but ambience is lacking.i

The place was dirty, cold and I have seen cleaner garages. I was afraid to order any of the beers off tap. The place needs to be shut down due to filth.

The only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of a 1 is because of the beer list, which is surprisingly good with some rare beers on tap. Besides that, this place isn't sure if it's a live music venue, bar, or restaurant, but it's...More

The Taphouse is only a couple blocks from the Waterfront Park and many hotels, so it's an easy walk.. A few dozen beers, ales, IPA on tap as well as pages more in bottles. They have a lot of local beers to try. Good late...More
