    Had a reservation for Fathers Day. Showed up and doors were closed because of a gas leak, no call or anything to cancel our reservation. I understand that needed to be taken care of, but I feel like you should have called your customers to let them know.

    They have a false advertisement for their Happy Hour on the website. The website lists half off appetizers and drafts, yet upon arrival they informed us that the new Happy Hour deals were in effect, which were $5 select fried appetizers and 25% off limited drafts. The new food selections were small and not particularly good, and the false promotion lead to a much less enjoyable time for my party.

    I was so excited to come as I saw the chef on an episode of Plate it Pittsburgh and the menu sounded amazing. I may have worked myself up to the point where anything less than fantastic would be a disappointment… and that’s what happened. We stayed long enough to have brunch and order regular menu items for takeout. Pro: amazing self-serve beer selection; nice atmosphere/vibe; our waitress was great as far as remembering our orders and knowing the menu items; a few of the menu items were good (All-In Fries, Home Fries, Bourbon French Toast). My sister said the chicken tacos were delicious. Cons: overall the food was just “ok”. I was not impressed by the hot chicken and waffles as it was a smallish portion, the chicken was mostly breading and the waffle had no flavor. The chicken seemed to be a small piece that was sliced and separated atop the thin waffle to make it look more substantial. Not bad, but also not great. My friend’s waffles were so burnt, they were inedible. Then she subbed it out with fries, and there was a hair in them. She just had a bad day. Everyone else’s food was deemed “ok”. No one was impressed and no one wants to return for the food. Perhaps beer …and maybe fries? But overall, I was disappointed.

    This is a fun casual spot to meet friends. You pour your own drinks and pay by the ounce. The food is fine, nothing special but not bad. I would probably go back more to drink than to eat.

    We had a truly wonderful experience at The Vault Taproom! Our waitress Corinne (hope I spelled this correctly) was absolutely fantastic- so kind, helpful, and just all around cheerful! Being able to taste and pour your own beer was really great and so fun to try what you probably wouldn’t have been able to before. This takes some heat off the servers and bartenders-brilliant. Now the food, I had the cauliflower po boy and it was absolutely delicious. My friends had the Kalua Pork Tacos, Smoked Brisket Rueben, and the Chef Smash Burger- we also had the fried green tomatoes that were excellent. We were all highly satisfied with our food and the servings are huge. You shouldn’t leave hungry from here. The entire experience was top notch and i highly recommend for a casual night out

    Had a reservation for 5 people, got sat at a table set up for 4 with just enough room for 4 people. Luckily one of our party didn’t end up coming or we would not have had enough room. Very loud, but it was happy hour so I’ll give them that much. Service was very slow and lackluster. Had to ask for drinks, sauces & even a forgotten part of a sandwich ordered. Overall, good happy hour spot for drinks and apps, otherwise pass.

    Great experience! Happy Hour/reunion for 7 old girlfriends. Loved that you could pour your own beer and wine and sample by the ounce! Also LOVED that it was half price before 7:00 as well as all of the appetizers being half price! The food was amazing! Especially the Thai cauliflower wings! We also had the pub pretzels, smoked wings and fried green tomatoes which were all great.

    Had heard buzz about this place for some time and it did not disappoint! Our server Ryane was super friendly and knowledgeable. She made our 1st experience with the wall of taps easy to understand. The availabilty of a variety of beers, sours and wines, at the self serve taps, is enough to bring me back. But that food...OMG! We enjoyed the fried green tomato and pretzels apps--get the cheese! The menu has amazing options from yummy comfort food (Hello, Mac n Cheeses) or salads and sandwiches. Cant wait to go back!

    The beer setup here is so cool. Great way to try a lot of things if you're a big craft beer fan, without needing to buy a ton of glasses. Cider and wine on tap too. The apps and sandwiches were good and the other food was fine. Go for the drinks/experience.

    I had the Salmon sandwich and it was awesome! In fact my whole party of 9 liked every single thing. The cocktails were very different and VERY easy to drink. The man that waited on us was very willing to give us explanations- it was just fantastic. It's probably one of my favorite new places to eat.
