The beer menu here is good. As for food, I only had some soup or something. Don't quite remember. However, there are several other options for craft beer now in downtown Norfolk so, the tap room might want to step up that beer list a bit.

We were first timers and came with a decent sized party. It was very crowded that night due to a bathrobe bar crawl thing going on. Despite the crowd, service was still great, attentive, and prompt. We ordered several different drinks and a few appetizers. All were very good! The dinners were amazing! I got a PETA burger. I'm not... More

Was in town for business and happened upon the Norfolk Tap Room for dinner. I wasn't too hungry, and the waitress recommended the grilled bites of Mahi Mahi. It was served with a sweet Teriyaki sauce that was delectable! The fish was grilled without any breading, and was tender and juicy. I finished it quickly and wanted more; it was... More

Went here to grab a few beers with friends. They have a ton of local beers on tap, like 20-30 to pick from. To add to that there is another 200 or so bottles/cans to pick from. We didn't end up eating anything but the beers were more than enough to keep us occupied. Had a few games on TV,... More

My wife and I had dinner and drinks at Norfolk Tap Room on 11 October 2016 - we loved it. Happy hour (2-7) Margaritas at $5 and flights of four drafts (in nice sampling glasses) at $8. Especially loved the local IPAs. Great service from knowledgeable staff. Wish we were here more nights - we'd definitely go back again.

There are a lot of beers here. Some draft but most on bottle or can. On about three occasions however, I asked for a certain beer on their menu and they did not have it. One of them, the waitress told me they have NEVER had that beer.... Then why is it on the menu? Food is good. My wife... More

I visited the tap room twice while attending a weeklong meeting at the Slover Library. The waitresses were very knowledgable and friendly. Local beers were highlight and they had a good selection of bottled craft and inported beer. I especially enjoyed the snifter of Duchesse De Bourgogne, a wonderful Belgian sour that I had there while watching the Thursday night... More

We are here for a friends birthday a few weeks ago, it was a Sunday night, fairly slow, but the food was definitely prepared fresh! Specials were fun and inventive and we took kids too and weren't the only ones. Lots of local beers to choose from and our waitress was very good at helping us pick them. Would return

Thank Jaclanh
