“Terrible salad and overpriced bar food”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

No one was in the restaurant at noon which should have been a sign. I had a salad that was very bland with nothing other than tomatoes in it. Very disappointing and I won't be back

“Lots of Great Beer, Very Good Crab Cake”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Pros: Wide selection (30+) of craft beers on draft, very good crab cake sandwich, nice location on the bay side of town.

Cons: Mediocre grilled cheese with bacon and tomato, low-intensity flavor of Parmesan/rosemary fries, ordinary house-made potato chips.

“Better than expected”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

The taphouse was not our first choice for lunch, but the place we were looking to go was closed. The Taphouse was close so we decided to eat there. They had a nice selection of American Craft Brews on tap, but were out of two that we asked for. This was surprising since it was off season and the place was not crowded. Guess this was a day of second choices. I ordered the Porky roll and spent the additional $2 for fries instead of chips. My wife had the Fish and chips. The food came out quickly and I was pleasantly surprised. The Pulled Pork was very good and the fries were excelent. Although the Fish and Chips didn't come with French Fries (it was an appetizer) the fish was cooked nicely and was very tasty. The prices were high for what we got, but it is Ocean City and you will pay dearly for food here. Overall it was a very pleasant experience

“Good Drinks”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

The Taphouse is known for its draft beer selection. That is certainly deserved; my “Anchor Steam Maple Autumn Red” was exceptional. In addition, my wife very much enjoyed her “Orange Crush” from the Taphouse’s great selection of “Crushes”. Last night, a Monday, was definitely off season. However, by 8pm almost every seat in the bar was taken and it was “party time”, or at least “time for some football”. Location on the bay is very nice. Servers and bartenders were very friendly and helpful. Food was the weak spot in the evenings. Pretzels and Chili were good, if undistinguished. However, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, even with bacon and tomatoes added, were dry and totally without flavor. Drinks were good.

“St. Patty's Day Shenanigans”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Stopped in here for some food and drinks on St. Patty's weekend 2013. It was crowded but fun - there was live music - we had delicious fish dip of some sort and the waitress was great! Drank lots of beer, some Jager shots .. . met some great people and it just made our weekend even better. We'll be back next year.
