Food was ok. I had eggs Benedict and the eggs were soft when I wanted them medium. There was no ham with my husbands toast. I was really sick when we got home. I am putting it down to the eggs.

We had a great experience - we sat on the 1st floor patio which had an amazing view.
The drinks were OK, although my 'moscow mule" cocktail was light on ginger, and heavy on the juice. also my fish and chips were pretty poor - the fish batter was more like a corn dog and was soggy and cold. We enjoyed salsa & guach' nacho dip starter, and the others enjoyed the vegan burger and curry - although we smiled at the 'store-bought' quality naan bread that was described on the menu as 'rustic' :)

Even though we had a reservation for a table inside, I had to wait 20 min and be seated outside. The waitress forgot our order and we had to wait extra for our food. The food tastes whatever. The views are nice other then that would not go again.

I reserved a table for us and we got a bit early, the waitress was nice enough to let us sit, the beer on tap was delicious food was not bad maybe portions a bit smaller than other places I was before. The service was really good. if you have the option to get there without a car, do it, parking is a bit tight.

Our server was great. I had a gluten free crust & it was apparently a new crust. The crust was pretty raw close to the centre, but the edge were cooked alright.

The poorest dining experience I've had in quite some time.
Our pleasant waiter arrived wearing a filthy and stained black T-shirt.
Disconcerting in COVID times. (We later observed staff giving only cursory wipedowns of tables. Poor work and most worrisome during a pandemic.)
Our breakfast arrived very promptly and was barely warm so we sent it back.
The remake took quite some time and when the food arrived it was only slightly warmer than the first time. We accepted it without comment.
My avocado toast had crust tough as cardboard, overdone poached eggs and the tator tots had been deep fried in so much grease it inspired indigestion!
You go to this restaurant at your own risk both in regard to unacceptably low cleanliness standards and poor food quality.
It's a risk I won't be taking ever again.

Tap & Barrel offers solid casual food with some of the best real estate in Vancouver. I highly recommend booking through Open Table as they're quite busy in the summer. The patios are fantastic.

Fried chicken Mac & Cheese was great, with a pint of Fat Tug IPA. We made reservation the day before & requested for patio seating. We got a call reminding us of our reservations & when we showed up on the day of, we were seated in the patio. It has a wonderful atmosphere for casual dining or just for a drink any time of the year but especially during the summer.
