“Great Beer Selection, Outstanding Staff”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Outstanding beer selection 50 craft beers on tap and many more bottles. The bar staff are always friendly and knowledgeable: Brian, Keith, Doug, Emilie, Alex, and Rachel, all know a tremendous amount about what they serve. They also quickly get to know their patrons and make recommendations tailored to each individual. The food is good, much better than you’d expect from a beer bar with some vegetarian options. I do hope they add a veggie burger to the menu in the near future. There is a friendly group of regulars who are warm and welcoming.

“Great selection of beer”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

The food is pretty good, but the beer selection is really great. The service has been fairly consistently good as well, as we have been several times since we can walk there. It has a lot of large TVs so if you want to watch the game ( go Ravens!) this is a good place. It has some cool art too. The only drawback is that it is pretty loud, which is hard for me to deal with for any length of time. Ask to sit in the smaller room, that helps but it is still loud.

“No Service”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

We walked into Frisco Tap House and waited to be seated. We waited patiently for 5 or so minutes, nobody came around. I figured it was a slow Saturday afternoon so, we made our way the bar to get service. The lady bartender looked at me and my wife (said nothing not even a smile) and walked right pass us to pour beers. I could see if the bar was crowded but it wasn't. We walked out of this location and took our money elsewhere. Again, the bar only had 5 people sitting and we were ignored.

“Great beer selection”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Wr stopped in here after an afternoon movie for some drinks and lunch. We were very impressed with the fact that they had over 50 beers on tap. Our server was very knowledgeable on the beer and made some great suggestions. She even brought out some samples for us to try. We started with the Mahi Fish Tacos as an appetizer. They were very tasty. Their other appetizers looked good too! We also ordered a cheese pizza with grilled chicken. The pizza crust was thin, crispy and tasty. I think they said they used beer in the crust. We shared a Beeramisu for desser which was delicious! The lady fingers were soaked in coffee stout instead of Kahula. They had 8 BIG TVs above the bar so thus would be a great place to see a game. We saw a sign on the door saying that they are knowing offering valet parking in weekend nights - good idea as the parking lot is a bit small for a restaurant of this size. They have a beer club - which we will look into next time we are in.

“Draft Beer A Plenty”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

A wide variety of draft beers to taste and the bartenders readily offer samples. The service was good & the staff was very friendly. The long tables reminded me of beer houses in Germany.
