Laid back bartender and very easy to chat with. He was able to recommend several other bars to check out while in town and even some food suggestions. We were some of the first customers for the day and just wanted to try a couple beers while in the area. There was a list of 4 different flights available for... More

this place has the best mussels and oyster Rockefeller, it was so good we order more, the broth the mussels were in you could just drink that right up it was simply amazing. They also have awesome happy hour drinks for $5

Stopped in here to have a cigar and have beer. I thought I'd kill some time. Typical college run down pub. Staff is nice enough but ambience is lacking.i

The burgers were delicious and they had a great selection of beers to choose from. We stopped in on a whim and were disappointed.

Spent a delightful Friday night drinking beer and listening to three punk rock bands at The Taphouse Grille. Staff was helpful and there were many beers on tap. Low cover charge. I thoroughly enjoyed all three bands and we closed the place. It was a rocking good time! I would go back!!!

We were looking to cool off and get a late lunch. The place was empty and the service was OK. Some of the draft beers we ordered were room temperature. It was a disappointment on such a hot day. The food was OK. The pulled pork sandwich looked weird. This place is better suited for late night drinking.

We met at 12noon on Sunday Feb. 8, and they were not full, but there was NO service. Two waiters, one of whom was also the bartender. After sitting with no menus( because they had NO menus to give us) for about 25 minutes, a burned-out waiter sauntered over and advised us that the kitchen was about 30 minutes behind... More

The place was dirty, cold and I have seen cleaner garages. I was afraid to order any of the beers off tap. The place needs to be shut down due to filth.

The only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of a 1 is because of the beer list, which is surprisingly good with some rare beers on tap. Besides that, this place isn't sure if it's a live music venue, bar, or restaurant, but it's definitely sure that cleaning supplies aren't needed. As we drank our first beer, the fella... More

The Taphouse is only a couple blocks from the Waterfront Park and many hotels, so it's an easy walk.. A few dozen beers, ales, IPA on tap as well as pages more in bottles. They have a lot of local beers to try. Good late night food too. Fun atmosphere to watch sports.
