Got a table upstairs (yes, there are two bars). Comfortable with great music (live music downstairs). Service fast and personable (Thanks Jaffery (Sp?)). Get a flight of up to 4 or select from a pretty good list of beers, ales, stouts, etc all on tap. Onion rings are pretty good and the street tacos were not bad (Not Texas good,... More

With a ton of taps and a very educated staff you are bound to find something that you are going to enjoy. With nice big booths and outside seating when the weather is nice, this is a great place to meet and hang out with friends. And don't forget to order the cheese curds. They might be the best anywhere.

If you would like to have a good beer, cider or cocktail and just chat with friends or read a book. This is the place. We stopped in around 3pm. The staff was nice. They have a deliciously sounding menu although we already had lunch. I will definitely try their food out next visit. Nice ambience, upstairs outdoor seating (weather... More

Several unique beer selections on tap. The upstairs is a little more private with better ambiance. Good place.

We tried this place a few weeks ago. It was fine. The menu had Hot dogs in various choices and I loved them.

We stopped in for some beers. They had sports on the TVs and good music overhead. nice and relaxing atmosphere. Our server was knowledgeable about the beer and very quick and friendly. We ordered some cheese curds, which were very good. Large beer selection.

Stopped in a few weeks back for a happy hour and have hosted a few small parties here. They will reserve the 2nd floor back area for you...or the side patio in the summer. Super tastey apps...the buffalo cheese curds are my fave. The beer selection is very extensive...ask your waiter for suggestions or to test any! Great place to... More

We have visited the Tap House on several occasions and usually leave disappointed. The large beer selection and rooftop seating are a huge plus, but the service is poor. Often times, the servers are very hard to track down and only bring a drink or two to the table at a time, so it's not ideal for groups of 4+.... More
