We've been here many times for brunch and dinner. The food is meticulously planned and exceptionally executed. Great craft beer list and full bar. Attentive staff. Leave room for dessert! Trapp Door isn't just a meal, it's a gastronomic delight!

Great alternative to the many cookie cutter chain restaurants in the area. Nice service, comfortable and great music. The food and beer is exceptional.

This is a fantastic place! It's super cozy inside here and the service is good. The beer selection is quite good and they're completely fine with you trying a sample of the draft beers, which is always great. The service is very good, but the...More
