“Food was very average”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

Good menu, but average food. Some food was nearly room temperature. Generally great atmosphere and beautiful outside deck, so rate high for that. Prices fine, and selection is good, but ultimately the food was below expectation.

“Decent lunch but not out of this world.”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

We arrived earlier than expected for the jet boat excursion so we decided to have lunch at their fancy restaurant next door. The building is beautiful and have a wonderful patio.

The food was decent (had a BBQ chopped chicken salad) however nothing to write home about. Their beer selection was decent as well. The one big knock was our waitress as she was very edgy and didn't seem to want to be there.

“Love This Place”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

We live in South Carolina, our daughter lives in Grants Pass. We eat at Taprock everytime we visit. I love the ambience and being on the river. We couldn't decide about the beer so we were offered tastings. Tonight the waitress, Alex, asked my husband if everything was OK. She was astute enough to notice his lack of response and dragged out of him that he didn't care for his meal (Shrimp and Crab Pasta was bland). She immediately offered to replace it with something else at no charge. He took her up on it and we had to laugh, the blackened fish tacos was definitely not bland. Two managers came separately to the table. We were also offered a free dessert. Jack Daniels Bread Pudding was yummy. I loved my Organic Chicken Salad. What could have been a ho hum evening turned out to be a lovely experience.

“Nice location ok food terrible service”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

The headline is about all I have to say. It's right by the river so it's scenic if you get the patio. The landscaping is nice as well. The service was poor, slow and forgot to put in an order and didn't even realize the mistake then forgot the side. I had my plate cleared when I went to take my kid to the restroom with my dinner still in progress. The kids were hungry after their meals so we ordered an extra plate of pasta and waited 30 minutes for that to come out. The server was apologetic but really, 30 minutes for some buttered noodles that my 12 year old said were overcooked? The first time in about 10 years I've felt like an undertip was deserved.

My roasted chicken was mediocre, the roast red reds were a bit under cooked, my wife really liked the salmon, but honestly she's going to have to talk me into coming back.
