We had our office holiday get together after work at City Tap House. There were only about 15 of us and we didn't arrive at the same time. With that being said, I was confused as to why our bartender kept walking passed my coworker and I as we tried to get her attention to order our drinks. She was... More

This restaurant has the feel of a spacious sports bar or oversized college tavern and is probably better for its beer selection and people-watching than as a place to grab a serious meal. Having said that, the service was friendly and prompt and the food was OK.

Our City Tap House experience got off to a rough start because the Hostess, (very stupid, confused, or hung over), couldn't seat us because we didn't have a reservation! Of course nobody had one! Anyway service was good and the food was great! Amazing Hamburger and the Pizza was outstanding too!

Great spot to catch Monday night football while traveling. Not busy (may have ben the game or the Windy turning cool night). Enjoyed a great burger but service was lackluster. There was little follow through and the staff was curt though polite. It was robotic and phoned in and seemed that way towards everyone at the bar including the enthusiastic... More

The selection is pretty good in terms of beer--they lacked a really good IPA on my last visit, so that was a bit disappointing. But the food is good and the atmosphere is okay for families as well. On a nice day you can also sit outside and enjoy the view.

We had reservations and were taken directly to our table. We noticed the drinking glasses were dirty, asked for new ones which were replaced. The server gave us some ideas for beer choices. He then took our order which consisted of an appetizer and three entrees (2 salads and the fish special- which the server hihgly recommended, wasn't our first... More

I've walked past this place probably a hundred times. Well, I finally got the chance to stop in! It has a great atmosphere and friendly staff. The beer menu is excellent and probably has whatever it is you are looking for. The food was a bit expensive and the menu was a bit limited. I'll definitely stop in again when... More

If you like burgers and beer then this is the spot for you! In the past Ive ordered burgers and they were amazing!!! But today I wanted something different so I ordered the 10 spice wings. BAD CHOICE I will never be getting those again. They were overly seasoned with cinnamon( not a fan of sweet food) and They kinda... More

My friends and I had eaten dinner earlier and were looking for somewhere else to have adult beverages. On such a beautiful evening we were pleased to happen upon City Tap House. We entered through the street level door and took an elevator to the bar. We opted to sit outside because the weather was wonderful. It was comparable to... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this hidden gem. A spacious bar with lots of sitting options, extensive beer selection and scrumptious bar food! Prices are very nice for the quality and the atmosphere of the place. Recommend!!
