Description: The English Tap & Beer Garden serves 30 beers on tap and over 60 bottled beers from around the world and has created an ample menu of delicious, reasonably-priced casual fare, perfect for lunch, dinner and happy hour with daily happy hour specials. Experience our inviting pub favorites along with other tasty selections including Burgers and Sliders, Organic Chicken, Bangers & Mash, Ahi Tuna Sliders, English Tap Asian Chicken Salad, Homemade Macaroni and Cheese (7 different ways), an assortment of Flatbreads, Panini's and so much more. According to the owner, John Watson, whom also owns Wild Olives, in Boca Raton, Taverna Opa at Dolphin Mall, and Wild Ginger in West Palm Beach, "You can barely walk a block in Manhattan without seeing some sort of beer garden, usually without any type of garden whatsoever. We know it's the right time to bring an authentic beer garden to South Florida, and we have the perfect outdoor/indoor location. People looking for delicious beers and a full bar accompanied by great food in a casual outdoor space will have to look no further than our restaurant."

“good service; decent food; great convenience”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

This pub with indoor and outdoor seating is literally right outside the Marriott Boca Center hotel - great convenience. I tried their prime rib special (Saturdays); the meat was very tender but smelled slightly aged (maybe my imagination). Large selection of beers (both bottled and draft); I was able to get Dos Equis Lager on tap. Service was very good and friendly.

“Great casual atmosphere and food”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

We were staying at the Marriot Boca Raton adn this bar is walking distance from the hotel. We went there a couple of times and we liked it very much. The food is pretty good so the beers. The happy hour is very casual and has a good atmosphere for families, couples and groups.

“So So”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Last time in Boca we went to Rocco's so we thought we would try the English Tap. It was just average the Rueben sandwich was good but the service was slow. The volume on the TV's in the dining room ought to be brought down in the dining room.

“Amazing beer selection!”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

When not in the mood for Rocco's I go next door and enjoy a different kind of place. Think Pub done Boca style. Nice out door seating with a great selection of Beers both on tap and in bottle. The crowd is always fun. My only complaint is the Shepard's Pie. Not what you would expect from a pub. The Fish and Chips is always good and the staff is eager to please.

“Great Spot for Beers and Games (food's pretty good, too)”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

We only just found the English Tap and Beer Garden recently and wished we had found it sooner. Spacious indoor and outdoor seating with inside and outside bars as well. As noted by others, huge beer selection and Amercian pub food with only a few English treats thrown in (bangors & mash, fish & chips). Our selections (6 different ones so far) have all been good and reasonably priced. We didn't expect gourmet food as some reveiwers seem to, but it was tasty, satisfying and usually enough to take home leftovers.

We especially like the service (Austin in particular), as well as the location and the plethora of big screen TV's. A great spot to catch away games for the Fins and the Heat (although they do allow some other teams to have a screen or two). We will be back often.
