I love Taps. I have probably dined here almost 50 times in my life time. My go to dish? Easy... Their miso Chilean sea bass. It's hands down the best sea bass dish I've ever had. The flavors of the miso with sushi rice, sautéed...More

Buffet was excellent. Variety and value was better than top buffets I visited in the past. Great service. We’re seated right away. Quality of food was great as well. Highly recommend it. Valet was only four dollars.

We visited two Fridays in a row when they were having their $1.99 burger deal. The deal was good, even though you had to order a drink to get it. The cheapest drink was a tea for $4 (that probably cost them $.05). It was...More

At $39 the Sunday brunch is expensive but was extra special. Unlimited champagne and high end buffet choices like custom crepes, fish boil, ribs, charcuterie plates, creme brulee. Order a custom omelette from your table. Crowded but worth it. Make a reservation and go early.

I recently went for an anniversary brunch with my wife. We had an amazing time. The food was delicious and they kept the mimosa glass full. I loved the service and everything was fresh and nicely presented.

This place is apt for bringing a date or for a fancy dinner. Lunch is ok--a bit on the pricey side, but food is great. It is also very popular for happy hour. Don't forget to try their own brewed beer.

I had decided it would be great to have "fish and chips" and a beer ... so this seemed a logical place to go. Not happening. Despite the down-home name, this is a pretty upscale place with prices to match. We had a drink and...More

sorry, i did not see your question right away but the two answers were both right, two menus but pretty similar, prices are pretty much the same but really worth it.

Yes, the last I knew they did have a Sunday buffet brunch that was considered one of the best in the area. I only went once and that was years ago. My impression at the time was that it was excellent, but that you really... More
