Late December, stopped in after we completed a visit to Nauticus. This establishment, 'back in the day', was originally, a Bank. It is situated on the corner directly across Granby street from the new Hilton hotel, The Main. It is an historic building with 18-20 foot ceilings, a very nice bar area and several dining tables scattered around a good... More

Our food was good. We sat at a high top in the bar area. What we really liked about this place was the bartender. He made suggestions for food and beer that we took and liked. He was very nice and we received drinks and food in a timely manner. The place is quite small but has a lot of... More

Extensive food and drink menu. Lots and lots of beer to choose from. Decent bar food served quickly and good portion sizes. Friend and helpful staff. Great place for a quick bite or after work drinks.

The beer menu here is good. As for food, I only had some soup or something. Don't quite remember. However, there are several other options for craft beer now in downtown Norfolk so, the tap room might want to step up that beer list a bit.

We were first timers and came with a decent sized party. It was very crowded that night due to a bathrobe bar crawl thing going on. Despite the crowd, service was still great, attentive, and prompt. We ordered several different drinks and a few appetizers. All were very good! The dinners were amazing! I got a PETA burger. I'm not... More

Was in town for business and happened upon the Norfolk Tap Room for dinner. I wasn't too hungry, and the waitress recommended the grilled bites of Mahi Mahi. It was served with a sweet Teriyaki sauce that was delectable! The fish was grilled without any breading, and was tender and juicy. I finished it quickly and wanted more; it was... More

Went here to grab a few beers with friends. They have a ton of local beers on tap, like 20-30 to pick from. To add to that there is another 200 or so bottles/cans to pick from. We didn't end up eating anything but the beers were more than enough to keep us occupied. Had a few games on TV,... More

My wife and I had dinner and drinks at Norfolk Tap Room on 11 October 2016 - we loved it. Happy hour (2-7) Margaritas at $5 and flights of four drafts (in nice sampling glasses) at $8. Especially loved the local IPAs. Great service from knowledgeable staff. Wish we were here more nights - we'd definitely go back again.
