We had a party of 9, maybe that’s why the service wasn’t that great. Food pretty good. Beer selection could be better

Food was really good, but on a Saturday night our order took forever when other tables around us who came after were on dessert before we got our entree. But the servers were nice - they seemed to be short staffed.

Reliable menu options and what you would expect from a Tap House / Grille and we were very happy with the quality of the food. Service, considering it was a busy Saturday night, was excellent....we will return when we're in the area again.

It was very cold inside, especially at the booths where you can feel the wind draft. I observed numerous people wearing their coats and complaining of the same. The heat was finally activated but didn’t make much of a difference. The staff was WONDERFUL but the service wasn’t the best, appeared they were short staffed on a Friday night. It took quite some time to have a server initially reach us. I asked for a medium rare new york strip steak, 1/3 of the steak was completely uncooked. I’ll probably never return in the winter, maybe the warmer seasons will be better, and hopefully my steak will be better.

My partner and I are locals and regulars here for dinner and wanted to have a special anniversary experience for brunch. Unfortunately - the experience was ruined immediately by a very rude hostess who decided to insult my intelligence, Scolding me for evidently not canceling the 11:30a reservation when indeed I did and moved it to 1145 reservation as I knew we were running late. After being seated, we waited about 15-minutes before being served. Then waited another 10 minutes for a glass of rose and lemons. It was very quiet but the waitress was not quite on top of things. We waited another 35-minutes for our meal which came out cold. My partners chicken was hot but our crepes and my burger was ice cold. She took it back and I had to wait another 10-minutes. It seems all we did was sit and wait, luckily the jazz was great but that seemed to be the only part of brunch that was. With a half hearted apology I received my burger and paid, leaving very dissatisfied. I personally love brunch and love the TapHouse but am left unsettled on ever returning. The staff seemed very disgruntled and the experience as a whole was just extremely lackluster, especially at an establishment so great and on a day as special as we wanted it to be.

Other than the fact that they did not have our open table reservation on their computer & thus I had to show them the booking on my phone everything turned out ok.

Good afternoon, We apologize that we didn't have your reservation saved, we run opentable directly into the system so there must have been a glitch or an error, sorry about that and we will continue to monitor in case any other issues pop up. We're glad your overall experience went well though, and we hope to see you again soon!

We go there often. Food is always good, noise level is always high, however getting our food was turtle speed. Had reservations at 7 and didn’t get the food for an hour. Not happy about that.

If I could give less than one star, I would. We had a party of 8 people and made the reservation months in advance. We had tickets to a show at 8:00 and had a 6:15 reservation. We made SURE that everyone knew we had to be OUT by 7:30. At 6:15 we are told that a large party "is just finishing up, but still lingering" and as soon as that table was ready, it was ours. At 6:25 I see that large party getting served coffee and dessert, so clearly they were not "just lingering" when I asked earlier. By 6:30 they decided to put us upstairs in their private party room (great idea, but maybe they should have done it 20 minutes earlier?) At that point, we had been in the restaurant waiting for over a half hour. We get seated, and AGAIN, make sure that EVERYONE (busboy, server, hostess) knew we had a hard stop of 7:30. We place our orders at 6:40 and are feeling good about it. 7:15 and NO SIGN OF OUR FOOD. We had already asked for the check along with the main course, but no one wanted to scarf down a meal in 5 minutes. Finally, at 7:20 we decided we were done. We head downstairs and tell them to forget it, we are leaving. The manager (not sure if that is who he was – seemed very young, but had more authority than anyone else so far) said it was because of the turkey burgers (which four of us ordered) that was making it take so long. Um…no. First of all, I’ve ordered a turkey burger before – they do not take 40 minutes to cook. Second of all, since everyone in that place knew we were pressed for time, why did no one tell us this when we placed the order? The one person who wasn’t going to the show with us stayed and took some food home with him. Which they WERE GOING TO CHARGE US FOR. Long story short, they didn’t. But still, horrible experience and we’ll never return.

My co-worker has been to the Hackettstown location and told me the food was great, so when friends from out of town we’re visiting in the Wayne area, I thought this would be a good choice and it was!! Food was fantastic and our little nook our table was in helped because it was a busy Friday night but it didn’t hamper the service or being able to enjoy the food and conversation!!! So glad we went!

Made reservation with Open Table which they didn’t have. I had confirmation and there was no problem getting a table. I asked for veggies instead of potatoes with dinner which they didn’t do but rectified when brought to their attention.

We go every year on our anniversary. Not much has changed on their menu since 2018. Wish they came up with specials or at least change up the menu. Our waitress was great and very attentive. I may suggest we go to another place next year. Overall, it was good but needs some updating.

Waited 20 minutes to find out they were out the app I ordered.. waited 20 minutes for 1 drink from the bar, and 30 minutes for an appetizer. Waitress didn’t ask to refill drinks once. Manager apologized about delay which was nice. Steakhouse burger had no steak sauce even though says on menu would come with. The rate your server card that came with the bill was already filled out and I was not provided a new one. Nice place with decent food options but won’t go back for all reasons above.

Our first visit to the much-ballyhood Taphouse Grill. Well worth it! Though the full dinners looked great, we went straight for the signature fried chicken sandwich and grilled shrimp tacos. Both were excellent. Even with a reservation, be prepared to wait!

My turkey burger was dry and lacked flavor. The french fries that was included with the turkey burger were greasy. Not an appetizing meal.

The beet salad was good and had an ample amount of yellow and red beets. My wife had the beet salad with salmon and she thought it was a good meal.

I wasn't impressed with my turkey burger and the variety of entrees on the menu. If you like pub food and how it's prepared than this is passable. I won't return again.

Food and service was terrific. Place does tend to be a bit noisy because of the open dining room design. Would like to see more vegetarian choices (there was only one).

Great variety in the menu and unusual touches to the dishes make this much more sophisticated than a typical pub.

I had the fried chicken sandwich which had a delicious aioli and pickles on it that really hit the spot. My appetizer was the mussels that were jazzed up with jalapenos. We split three generous scoops of great lemon sorbet for dessert. Beer selection was excellent including, I think 8 different IPAs.
