Nice bar scene. Typical American set up. The location is easily accessible if you're a visitor in the city. I happen to be there on a Wednesday, ladies' night they said and because of that our bill was significantly discounted. The service was great.

Took awhile to get seated. Then took awhile for server to come. But once I got my food, it was good. I got the little burgers for a meal. They were hot and tasty.

This place was unfortunately very disappointing. The steak cut was the worse that we could ever had. Packed with fat check the pic here. Not a way to serve food . Absolutely to avoid

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.
