Food is very consistent, hot to order. Could use a few more options on the menu, but everything that comes out is excellent! Always have a great meal there :)

My husband and I braved Covid-19 and all restrictions to celebrate good news and enjoy a meal out. Alas, that was not permitted at this restaurant. Food tasted great but server was aggressive far more than attentive. Not two minutes after food runner gave us our entrees, she asked if I needed a box for my not yet eaten meal. We told her it had just arrived, she went away and came back twice more with “are you STILL eating?”, then “are you nibbling or do you need it packed up?” Our dining experience destroyed how great the burger was and our wish for a nice meal out. She needs to be trained as being rushed in this manner ... no McDonalds would have treated us better.

I’ve been enjoying the dining experience and food at Taphouse for several years. The service and food continue to be consistently good—that’s why I keep returning. They periodically change a few things on the menu so there’s always something new to try.

Had a 7p appointment and showed up at 645. A couple showed up and said they had reservations, hostess could not find name (lie) and seated them before us. (The couple winked at each other and played the hostess for a fool, so we waited longer).

Service and atmosphere were excellent but food was not good. All four of us said the best part of our meal was our nachos with chicken. The hamburgers were not cooked properly, medium well was rare. Kinda of gross.

Unfortunately I paid $91.00, with tip, for 3 burgers and vegetarian chili which was terrible. I can make a better burger at my house, not worth going back. When your appetizer is better than your meal, it’s not a good sign.

Feel free to email me a contact number and I will elaborate further.

Excellent night! Relaxed atmosphere. So much better than the usual Outback or Longhorn- so over those restaurants.
Had a delicious meal- Crispy Shrimp to share with hubby. Then steaks- he had the rib eye- I had the filet. Cooked absolutely perfectly! We both had our steaks topped with their mushroom demi glacé - delicious!
My one critique would be “work on the place presentation- geez- put a little effort- goes a long way.

I had a pleasant experience at Taphouse. The only thing that I could comment on was the pizza my boyfriend ordered. Despite his request to have the pizza well done he received a floppy and greasy pizza. We wound up taking it home and re-cooking it to get a crispy crust. Other than that the waitress was very nice and accommodating. Despite the pizza issue we will be back again

Very disappointed that we had a reservation but were forced to wait 20 minutes after our reservation time for a table. It seemed like they cleared out all other people waiting that didn’t have reservations and gave no priority for our reservation. Guess using open table for this restaurant is not helpful.

We’ve been going to Taphouse Grille for a number of years now. One very important thing is that the burgers are always cooked as ordered. Other menu items are done well also. They recently trimmed the menu down but old favorites are still there, except the Edamame appetizer, which is missed by us, at least. It will still be in the top rotation of local spots.

We always enjoy our dining at Taphouse Grille. The service is consistently good as are the food offerings. Even when a favorite item is removed from the menu, there’s usually something good to replace it. It’s my favorite restaurant.

The place is very cool but the food is meh. The burger had a greasy taste to it so I couldn't even finish a quarter of it. The other pasta meals were nothing to write home about. Definitely overpriced for the quality of the food.

Had a wonderful dining experience. While menu has changed recently some of my favorites were still on it. Had oerogi appetizer which was delicious. Dinner I had the roasted chicken with haricots verts and these amazing roasted potatoes. I opted for the lemon pepper sauce which was a great compliment to the meal. Chicken was cooked perfectly. My husband had NY strip, while a little pricey at $32 he said it was delicious and cooked perfectly. Kudos to restaurant for a free dinner for our Veterans. Our waiter John was excellent. Margarita was also great.

Generally this is our go-to local restaurant. This last visit wasn't the norm. French onion soup came out completely charred, which after over 5 minutes later we flagged the waitress down & asked to get a replacement, and the server obliged but said nothing about it. We were surprised she would serve something so obviously inedible. I ordered the TG burger, and I love mushrooms but this tasted distinctly like truffle which I don't like at all, so I didn't eat it. Maybe it was my imagination, but if there is truffle anything on the burger, the menu should say so. Service was pretty spotty this time, the waitress didn't stop by until well after our meal was over. We often have Harlan as our server, and he's fantastic. Overall we love Tap House and we're hoping this was a one-time bad experience.
We like the menu change but hope they will bring back the giant pretzel (regular, not onion), calamari, and the delicious pork chop with sausage dish.

As a beer lover, Taphouse was recommended to my husband and me. Todd, the bartender was helpful, welcoming and attentive. When I told him my beer likes, Todd made excellent recommendations which I totally loved. The food was excellent and the service was superb. We will definitely be returning on our next visit to New Jersey.

We ordered the Loaded Nachos

corn tortilla chips, jack cheese, black olives, jalapeño pico de gallo, sour cream (add bbq pork, chicken or turkey chili +$3; add guacamole +$2)

There was virtually NO CHEESE in this entire dish. We had to request sour cream. We sent it back and told them to add cheese. This was a lost cause. Whoever the cook was should be fired and get a different vocation. The manager came over but hell - - we really were finished with the TapHouse.
