Ordered the fried chicken sandwich and it is to die for. Bartender told me they it make In house and. Worth it. Can't stop eating. We are from out if state so we didn't know what to expect. We pulled up to this small hole in the wall & I was extremely doubtful. The beer selection is fantastic. Service is... More

This place had become a regular hang out for us since the new ownership. The beer list is awesome and so is the food. I always enjoy my time there and the staff are all friendly and really do go above and beyond. The location is also great with a lot to do around it. I highly recommend you won't... More

Revamped under new ownership summer of 2014, the Commercial Taphouse is a new and amazing take on Asian fusion. While we were there we had the fried oyster lettuce wraps that exceeded our expectations. Fresh and cooked just right! We had the Viet dip, which is a hoagie stuffed with beef brisket and an amazing mix of complimentary flavors. The... More

I went in looking for the ribs that i had enjoyed in the past. When i saw the new menu I was a bit disappointed. However, i was steered toward a popular item. Im hooked. The viet dip is fantastic. I'll be back.

First, I want to point out that they were very accommodating of a food allergy in our group and made food to order. Service was awesome! The beer selection on tap was extensive and as an added bonus, we were able to have small samples before ordering a full pint. The menu was interesting, lots of Asian influence and lots... More

I love when an old flame can be rekindled! When we moved to Richmond 16 years ago, Commercial Taphouse was THE place to go for craft beers. However, as more and more beer places opened up, we came here less and less. Knowing the quality of beer that is carried at Mekong, I knew we had to give this place... More

Good meal, but restaurant was not able to accommodate request for omitting onions from a steak and cheese sandwich? Really? Made me think that the food was not prepared fresh to order. The burgers were very good and service was adequate.

Good beers on tap,including a cask selection. Bartender was very knowledgeable - had a good home brewing discussion with him. Other customers also very friendly. Nice atmosphere. Food good as well. We tried the beer battered onion rings, salad and pizza. Would gladly return.

Beer selection was awesome, signature Wings were delicious. Waitstaff was so so and the place is truly a local hole-in-the wall, which is ok if that's what you are into. I'd go back for beer, but it'd be nice if it was a little brighter inside. But, hey, if that's the look they are going for, then they nailed it.... More
