Had a fabulous meal at City Tap House. The roasted brussel sprouts appetizer was a great way to kick things off. Followed that with the tuna poke bowl. Delicious! Add a great beer selection and I was in heaven. To top it off, the staff was attentive and service was fast.

We had a great dinner here...in fact, delicious... except for the very high noise level. We could hardly hear each other, even sitting side by side! We knew this was a factor from reading previous reviews and had reserved an early dinner. Unfortunately, our travel was delayed and had to last minute modify our time... an hour later. ( Thank you for understanding City Tap !!!!) More pros... Our servers were amazing, Hannah was especially wonderful, and even surprised us at the end with a Bday dessert!!! The restaurant is only 3/4 of a block from the Embassy Suites City Center Philadelphia, too....do check it out! Super convenient after a looooong day of travel!!!!

Had an excellent brunch at CityTap! Their Bloody Mary’s are the best! The atmosphere at Logan is fun, open yet inviting! Can’t wait to go back!

The food is solid yummy bar food. The corn dip is wonderful. The tacos are yummy. The wings are different, very good, different.
If you just want beer or wine and a snack city tap is a lot of fun. The one in university city is even better than this one.
They are both loud and have a great atmosphere.
Not a mixed drink bar. Definately a tap house only.

It was extremely busy when we arrived on Saturday 2/15. We were greeted by the hostess and were seated right away. We did have a reservation which I recommend. Our server was knowledgeable & attentive. Our drinks and food were delicious! Great craft beer selection! Appetizers, cauliflower & broccoli were delicious and we split a white pizza which was also amazing!

Went there for Valentine’s Day and it was by far one of the worst meals we can remember. Asked our server about the hummus and if there were olives in/on it (we don’t like olives), she said no and then was surprised it did when it came out. It was as if our server didn’t know anything on the menu and was rushing around with 10 tables in the entire place being occupied. My fiancé got the salmon as a recommendation and it was awful! She would normally eat any salmon as it’s her favorite food and she pushed this to the side with all of the random flavors and that the fish was dry in some areas and raw in others. I ordered the Abe froman pizza and it tasted as if it were prepared earlier and flash heated for it to be served. The fries we ordered were also hot on top cold on the bottom like they were just sitting for who knows how long under heat lamps. This is my first review of anywhere as I’m not one to usually publish my dislike for an establishment but we really felt cheated. We won’t be back... public house was better!

We had just finished shopping at the Christmas Village in Love Park and this was the perfect place to go right after! The food was great and the staff was so helpful as I had dietary restrictions...so did my wife. We will definitely come here again in the future.

So we were sat in a section and ended up with two different servers. Our waiter essentially forgot about us (he had a large group sat at the same time as us) so he was just focused more on them. When we sat down our glasses were dirty and we had to ask for new ones. I understand it was busy but the Mayer’s weren’t even helping out. We had to track down someone to get us our bill so we could leave since we weren’t being waited on. I won’t be back for anymore dinner service. And lunch service has also started to dwindle. I think it’s time to focus on your service

Steak was tough and overcooked, veggies were mush. Caesar salad and mussels were ok. Service was just ok. Kids menu was also ok.

Better as a bar than a restaurant.

I enjoy City Tap but it can get very crowded and loud. Loud that you cannot talk to the people at your table. It was very loud this evening, so loud I could not hear the people I was eating with. Lessened the enjoyment of the evening.

Great selection of beers on tap, super friendly service. Oh, and the menu? WOW! Something for everyone with so many unique blends and options. Definitely a place to keep in mind when you want good cold beer and an eclectic menu, no matter what City Tap House city location you might find yourself in.

We went to City Tap House for Sunday brunch. It didn't look like we really needed a reservation since there were a lot of open tables, but the service was quick and attentive. The menu was extensive and everything on it sounded delicious. We ordered Bloody Mary's which were on the spicier side but tasty nonetheless. We were starving so we put in an order for an appetizer. However, the appetizer took quite some time and came out minutes before our meals so we had to eat the appetizer with our meals instead of before it. The food was all delicious and the portions were massive.

We had a lunch reservation on a weekday. The service was prompt and the food was great. When our dessert (a warm apple crisp) arrived at our table it was cold. We alerted the server and she immediately took it away to get a replacement. She brought back a nice warm apple crisp. Later the manager stopped by our table and comped us for the dessert apologizing for the first one. He also gave us a discount toward a future entree. Now, that is excellent customer service. We will be back! Our only complaint was that the coffee was way too strong, but that did not change our overall opinion.

Excellent service, especially with assistance for gluten free options. Two out of four of us require gluten free meals. Gluten free pizzas were delicious, love the eclectic options. Burger (and gluten free bun, yay!) was tasty and flavorful. Our waitress went above and beyond to be sure we were accommodated.
