We were looking for a good brew pub with a happy hour or something. We were directed to The Taproom Pub & Grub. We were not disappointed... The food was very good and the prices were perfect. Would recommend a stop for their special burger

Moderately priced food with a great and wide ranging selection of domestic, craft and international beers. The noise level is loud when a large crowd is present

I've been coming here on and off for years. There is not much to say other than you can order some of the best burgers in town along with a hundred different beer options. I've spent 30 years in San Marcos, and this rates near the top of my list. For a little variety, ask the server for their recommendation... More

This place a a great selection of beers. And the burgers and fries are one of our favorites in town. This is a bar so it's not really somewhere you can bring smaller ones to eat and it gets pretty loud sometimes. Otherwise great place to chill out after a long week.

NOTE: you park in the back of this restaurant, not on the street listed address We ate there at lunch on the Monday after New Years. Plenty of seating at that time. Dozens of beer choices on tap and others in bottles. They also have a full bar. We went for a burger after reading all the reviews. The toppings... More

Declaration: The Tap Room has the best burger in San Marcos. Period. :-) Nicer location since they expanded to the Square as well. Reliable decent priced food with great televisions for your game day viewing.

Taproom has a large selection of beers on tap and very good waitstaff. They also have pub trivia nights and a good amount of seating for the size of the restaurant. However, what makes Taproom is their bugers!! I always bring my friends who are visiting or new to San Marcos here for a beer and a burger as a... More

The Tap Room, is a college student hangout. They have a very large selection of beer, and a variety of burger choices. The burgers were a little dry, but had a good flavor. The onion rings were oily. The wait staff was friendly but over worked, could use more waitress.

I LOOOVE this place the burgers are amazing. They have a fantastic beer selection, which I myself greatly appreciate. The atmosphere is a little "Barish" so its kind of dark, not my favorite ambiance.... but well worth it!
