This is an adorable, warm and cozy bar ... WITH a friendly staff AND Maine-centric craft beer. I broke a 26 day no alcohol diet to enjoy the moment.

Neat little pub! Little Tap House offers some mind blowing awesome burgers. I do not think that we have ever had burgers that tasted so good. Cooked to perfection! Great beer also. Waitress was superb! Why not 5 stars? The seemingly fake french fries that were served with the meals were very surprising. Top notch burgers accompanied by some terrible... More

The day after Christmas this was one of the few restaurants open for lunch and it was a gem. Accommodations for a one year old with fantastic service. Box lunches were just right with a small sandwich and a salad or yummy french fries, which the one year old loved. I highly recommend the reuben or the lox or the... More

We just wanted a drink and a bite to eat. We were driving by and pulled in. The menu was small, but the food was very good! The atmosphere is welcoming and the staff was attentive and pleasant. There was a good variety of local brews on tap as well as a full bar. We will definitely stop back in.

One of my favorite spots in Portland, this dimly lit gastropub has very solid apps that can be paired with one of its 14 or so local craft beers or a quality cocktails. The food quality is excellent and the presentation thoughtful. Service has always been friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Bar seating as well as quiet tables are... More

We went to the Little Tap House for lunch. We read online that the burgers were excellent. Upon arrival the first thing I noticed was that each table had two/4 empty wine glasses sitting there with the silverware. I was able to notice from the doorway that the glasses were foggy and dirty. When we got to our table the... More

This place was just down the block from the apartment we where we were staying. Having walked by it a couple of times, we thought it was just a small bar. After looking at the reviews, we decided to give it a try for dinner and were so pleased! There is, of course, a bar area in the front of... More

We stopped off in this nice pub for an IPA and a whiskey. Great selection of beers - a real strength. Comfortable seating limited. Need chairs with backs for the barrels. Server very pleasant, but the place seemed understaffed. signed: The Newly Retired.

Hi, The Newly Retired! Thanks so much for dining with us and for taking the time to leave a review. IPA & Whiskey. The perfect match! We're always happy to grab a backed-stool from the bar to make your stay more comfortable! Lower dining seating is comfortably high-backed as well. Thank you again for coming in. Hope to see you...
