We had a good stop here. Had the 10 minute lunch. I thought menu was decent with some good selections. Kids are well, but pretty bland food. I didn’t indulge in any beers, but thought the selection was rough. For a place called 'tap room'...More

First time visit to the Tap Room and it didn’t disappoint. Choice of beers was good and the atmosphere was excellent. Chose the jambalaya and it was very enjoyable, great flavours with a little ‘kick’. Service was also very good. Would recommend booking if possible...More

We were part of a group with five people sitting at our table. The Margaritas were not very good. Two of us ordered them (we love this drink) but it just didn’t taste like a traditional margarita. The food was ok. The service left a...More

This is American Regional Cuisine at its classic, pub-inspired best. The food is fun and what we like to call “approachable”. You’ll also enjoy some twists on the classics with taste-inspired ideas like our Dirty Caesar Salad and Greek Turkey Burger. At the American Tap Room we believe in using local ingredients as much as possible and, yes, everything we serve goes well with beer. Ranging from weekend brunch, to a casual lunch outing or an after-work gathering in our bar, each dining experience is uniquely enjoyable. Enjoy your time with us on our outdoor patio, inside by the fireplace, or by booking an event in our private room.
