This was our first time here. What a great surprise! Everything was wonderful. Unfortunately, it had rained, so the patio outside was closed. I am excited about returning with my adult children. We are always looking for new, fun places to dine.

Ate on the patio on a beautiful night… until a quick storm came in. Staff quickly helped us relocate inside and saved the day (and our drinks and food) Everyone working was friendly and helpful although it was a busy night.
The salads with berries were very good with chicken or salmon added. Our friends had a traditional burger and the Mac and cheese and were happy as well.
Interesting beers and Citizen cider on tap.
I am certainly recommending this establishment!

Very slow service even for a busy night. Took 30 minutes to even get our first drink and two hours before check. We ended up bringing the check inside because our waitress disappeared for so long. Never got a second round of drinks because of how long it took. Had to get up and go inside to get our own napkins and silverware after waitress was no where to be found.

Excellent all the way around and accommodating when a storm came through as we were eating outside. No issues when we asked to go inside to eat.

This was our 2nd meal here in 2 days.

We ate here twice this week. Both times our servers were great and the food was fantastic. Michelle our first night and Bella our second night were attentive and kind- even with our large group and multiple checks! The dry rub wings are awesome- best we’ve ever had. Their salads are so fresh and amazing - especially with the fresh herbs. Great wine by the glass too.

Hamburgers were good, but a little over done. I asked for Medium rare and were more Medium +. Great beer selection and excellent mixed drinks. Staff very accommodating and responsive.

Menu needs a bit more choices. It is more of Pub food style. Would like to see a couple of fish options added, like fish/chips and salmon styles.

It’s a very nice place but putting people up when a wedding dinner is starting to get over and everyone is cleaning up wasn’t a very good idea. The waitress was great.

Food was excellent and our waitress was very nice and accommodating. It was a little warm outside Uber the canopy and fans above would be nice to circulate the air but the patio was nice - water view was pretty. Noise from motorcycles and trucks in the main road was load at times. Food was so good and everyone was pleased with their meal.

We had an appetizer and ate half our me before the drinks came. My beer choice kicked so I got water and it still was on the bill.

There is no consistency with the food. I got the same sandwich I got a few months ago and there was half the chicken it had prior, the wait for drinks is very long, and the wait for a table when it is your reservation time is long.

I recognize staffing is an issue but at least hire a GM to try to improve your customer's experience.

It makes me really miss the old track inn.

The staff appeared to be overextended and were not nearly as friendly and attentive as they had been the previous night of our stay. The food was not compromised by the service. Me and my dining partner enjoyed our food VERY much.

Waitress never came back to us after she delivered our food. My son had asked for a drink and never received it. No water - nothing. We did see her go to the table next to us three times. We had to ask another employee to get us our check.

The food was delicious. I ordered the steak frites and it was a tender cut cooked to perfection. Our only complaint was the pacing of the delivery. Our main course was delivered to our table moments after the appetizer. The live music was so enjoyable! The musician played the entire 90 minutes while we dined. It was a great meal.

I hate to write this review. Prior to the pandemic, we had been to the Taproom multiple times as we live about 20 minutes away, and the food and service was always great. Now, the menu is much pared down, the food is not as good overall as it used to be, and the whole scene was rather chaotic, especially for a Tuesday night. We had a table of 7. Our waitress was very nice and apologetic, but we questioned whether she had ever waited tables before. The food came out sporadically and not in any particular order. Some of the food was very good (hence the 3 stars instead of 1 or 2), some was sub-par and cold. The menu descriptions on a few of the dishes did not match what was served.
They couldn't keep track of what was on their tap list, and the poor waitress had to keep running back upstairs to ask us to substitute another beer because they were out of the ones we had ordered, etc. You get the picture. They're obviously not running with a full, well-trained staff here any longer - so expect long wait-times, possible cold food, and basically a loud, chaotic dining experience.

Our waitress was very attentive. Our request to be seated outdoors was accommodated. The food was average. The reason for the three stars was the wait time for the food. Seems like it took a lot longer than it should have for 2 burgers and a salad. Overall the experience was good. Would probably go back another time. Definitely sit outside if you can as the sunset over the lake can't be beat!

We are locals and love the lakeside dining experience. We requested outside seating on a warm and sunny evening, and were delighted to be seated on the porch with views of Lake Bomoseen. Our food was delicious, drinks cold and refreshing. Hostess and server were friendly and attentive. We will return again and recommend The Bomoseen Taproom to friends and famiky.

We did both take out and dine-in (outdoor) over the Memorial Day weekend, and the only thing that surpassed the delicious food was the warm welcoming service! My wife and I look forward to many happy dining experiences at the Tap Room this coming summer.

First time eating here as well as choosing an inside dining option in Vermont. The establishment was very busy and had a nice band playing inside. It was located across from Lake Bomoseen with a nice view of the sunset. They were a bit understaffed last evening which the server frequently apologized for but she offered complimentary refills on our drinks as well as desserts on the house. That was much appreciated! The simple and casual menu choices were a bit deceiving because the quality of the food was fantastic! We really enjoyed our meals and it more than made up for the slightly slower service we experienced. We will be returning for sure!
