I'm not much of a beer drinker, but that doesn't mean I won't get a delicious meal and sit outside on their gorgeous patio! Stick with the Cowgirl Creamery, trust me! And for dessert, order the sticky toffee pudding or milk chocolate creme brulee!
We've Got a Problem Here!!!!!! – THE MUSIC IS REALLY LOUD. Sorry I raised my voice. I suppose it's due to the hearing loss I experience every time I go to TAP. Can't help it. The music is really loud. I can barely hear my fellow diner(s) talking and that's before, I repeat before the DJ starts up. It's my understanding that the owners think this is really nifty. AOK. Not gonna argue. They just need to know that everybody I talk to says the same thing. TOO LOUD!!! Heard rumors that the neighbors aren?t so happy with the noise level either. So now to the food. Well, dined there around 10 times and in the final analysis I?d say it's iffy. Actually, last evening may have sounded the death knell. I ordered a fish sandwich and it came with a slice of American cheese on it. Did ya hear me? American cheese which it turns out is something they call ?square cheese?. WHAT?????? Enough said people. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to go back there since this episode puts into question all the other ingredients they use. OK, so on the lighter side???? Never had bad service there. Ah?.OK, now I?m done. I think I?ll still go but it will be on a Saturday afternoon from 2-4 and I?ll just drink beer. There?that should work!!!
Fun Patio, Food is nothing special – I was here on a recent Thursday night for drinks and dinner. The patio was spilling over with folks having post-work drinks, generating a fun, energetic vibe. The food, however, is nothing special.
My friends and I sampled the fried pickles for a starter. They were sweet pickles, which was unexpected, and not very crispy or flavorful. I ordered the mussels for dinner. They were very small, a bit slimy and the broth was plain and needed some spice. I did enjoy the side order of garlic french fries.
I'd come back here for beer, an enjoyable patio scene and maybe some more of those fries. But I'll eat dinner at home or elsewhere.
agree, go there for drinks not food! – i agree with other reviewers. if you want to hang out, be seen, be in a cool locale and have good drinks, certainly hang out here. if you are at all hungry for anything beyond appetizers, do NOT go here. $14 for a lukewarm/cold cheesesteak sandwich? are you kidding me? and this wasn't on saturday night, this was on a weeknight. my friends got cheeseburgers and they looked small and equally cold. service was mediocre at best, brought the wrong sides out and slow. don't even have tabasco, what a shame.
Crowded but Great – Tap is the perfect combination of atmosphere, location and great food. I love going at happy hour, where there is such a diverse crowd.
Just order drinks - skip the menu – Good selection of beer, nice staff, but overpriced and the food is sub-par. If you're just wanting a couple of drinks before you go to eat real food - it's a nice spot. If you're hungry, keep walking.
Tap...Great Piece of Real Estate! – A friend and I went to Tap because they were advertising a Cinco de Mayo party however when we arrived they only had half off patron...WOW...okay so we sit down and we have the laziest waiter in the place helping our table well they bring us the menu and its dirty and greezy and I am flipping through this paphlet of information trying to find what they are serving today becasue it has brunch, snacks, appetizers, and drinks where the heck are the entree's well with a little help we find the entree's...low and behold the otions are limited and the selction is off the wall...I just couldnt believe the skimpy selection and the cuisine is all over the place. I wouldnt recommend this place to my worst enemy all I can say is they have a great piece of real estate!
Awesome food, beer, and service – From the moment we sat down our server, Harrison, was helpful and attentive. He took the time to suggest a couple of beers we might like and let us have a sample before we made our final decision. All his food suggestions were right on, we loved everything we ordered from the goat cheese plate to the pub burger. And when our drinks took a little long to arrive, he apologized for the wait and said it was because there was a large party upstairs. In a world where customer service is lacking, Harrison was friendly and attentive and made our first experience at Tap worth it and we will definitely come back!
Overrated by far – A friend and I walked up to the restaurant and upon assessing the atmosphere and decor agreed that it looked like a good hang out spot. We stood at the door wondering if we should seat ourselves or if we needed to wait to be seated (mind you someone was folding silverware right next to us). We asked what to do and he said the host stand was on the other side of the bar. To make this short- the server was unattentive and lazy and the food was pretty good (the sauces were what saved them) but not warm at all. After serving our meals our server ignored us- two other servers came by to pick up our plates. A completely different server came with our checks (this was on a Thursday night after 9:30 PM and they weren't busy at all). Our original server came by to take our payment and that was that. I tipped poorly and wrote a note on my check saying the service was poor. The food was mediocre- nothing to rave about. It tasted as if it had been sitting on the plate for too long (barely warm). The place is somewhat overpriced for what you get and the quality of the food. I would NOT recommend this place and will NEVER go again.
Terrible Experience- Won't Go Back – Its a very rare thing that my husband and I go to a bar or restaurant and only order three things total. Its an even rarer thing for us to order only three things total and have one of them be unavailable. But ALL THREE? That happened to us at Tap. We went in one Friday during happy hour, sat at the bar, and ordered a glass of white wine (didn't even specify a varietal!), a Sam Adams, and a plate of the calamari listed on the menu. Our bartended cheerfully said "no problem!" One minute later we were informed that ALL the white wine in the place hadn't been chilled and was hot, but he could serve it to me "on ice". Uh, yuck. A couple of minutes later he told my husband they were out of Sam Adams. THEN, after that, he told us that the kitchen "couldn't make" the calamari until 5 pm. It was about 4:45. He told us he could give us a plate of the olives stored on the bar. He did, they were terrible, and then he charged us for them. We choked down the olives, iced down wine, and whatever replacement beer was offered, and got the heck out of there. Its unbelievable to me that a BAR would be out of chiilled wine and a featured beer DURING HAPPY HOUR?!?!? And no flexibility to make something off the happy hour menu 15 minutes early? We would have just waited...but...they didn't have our drinks! We won't go back. We're not even that picky, but come ON.
On it's way....!! – Went for the first time tonight. First impressions: Impressed. Service was terrible. I am not going to go into details. I feel that this spot has a lot of potential. Some food/dishes are "gastropub" enough (i.e. calamari and stuffed mush.) and need to be left alone. The atmosphere is unlike any other in the city. Great beer selection (there) and simple food is a must (almost there). Could very easily be my favorite bar in Atlanta.
