American Tap Room is walking distance to one of my favorite restaurant, Mon Ami Gabi. I don't know how I ended up here. It was definitely a hail mary move. Walking past the window I saw a delicious grilled cheese sandwich and had to give...More

I had great expectations because of the location. What a let-down. I started off with the Truffle fries. They were heavy and average; not the light crispy fluffy insides that I was expecting. I gave them a pass and decided to try an entree anyhow....More

Went for dinner but hit the happy hour as they had 1/2 price apps and beer specials. The brussel sprouts were amazing and they have a great selection of craft beers! Yummmmm.

Nice bar scene. Typical American set up. The location is easily accessible if you're a visitor in the city. I happen to be there on a Wednesday, ladies' night they said and because of that our bill was significantly discounted. The service was great.

This is American Regional Cuisine at its classic, pub-inspired best. The food is fun and what we like to call “approachable”. You’ll also enjoy some twists on the classics with taste-inspired ideas like our Dirty Caesar Salad and Greek Turkey Burger. At the American Tap Room we believe in using local ingredients as much as possible and, yes, everything we serve goes well with beer. Ranging from weekend brunch, to a casual lunch outing or an after-work gathering in our bar, each dining experience is uniquely enjoyable. Enjoy your time with us on our outdoor patio, inside by the fireplace, or by booking an event in our private room.
