Halloumi bowl, bottle of white wine and a sunny seat on the patio….best way to have my first in-person business meeting in over a year!

Very good overall. The service by the male server with blonde hair was great! The only thing I would change is the amount of heaters. One was also broken when were there

This is a staple for us, as we know it’s a beautiful afternoon patio spot for some drinks and nibbles. I would love to see more veg options on the menu.

Service was slow, waiting a long time for a second round of drinks. It was a busy patio but there seemed to be a ton of staff.
Again a bummer when our appetizer and entrees all arrived at the same time and was clearly sitting for a while waiting to be brought out since it was all cold.

I loved the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The Spring Fling cocktail was was amazing and the nachos and salsa was refreshing. The location is so great at this place and has amazing view. Service was well-timed and friendly and affordable.

When we arrived the hostess made sure we were seated in a sheltered area with a heat lamp as requested. Our server was very friendly and made sure we had all that we needed. He also comped my sister’s dessert as he found out we were there to celebrate her birthday. All in all a wonderful experience

The support staff were great but the initial hostess that I encountered was unfriendly and snappy.

My server was abrupt cold and seem to be forcing himself to smile. He during our stay and his shift and sat at the bar and gossiped with the bartender quite blatantly in an unfriendly manner.

As previously mentioned, the support staff that were running food and clearing tables were great and friendly.

FYI even if the reservation appears available on open table, it doesn’t mean that the table is available. I’d been to this tap and barrel many times and never had issues until now. Not sure why Tap doesn’t block it off on the app to minimize confusion. So we ended up waiting for a table because essentially the open table reservation was voided.

Food was good like usual. Bizarre experience with the reso system.

Food, drinks & service were great. We were served very quickly. Good menu variety with interesting eats. I would highly recommend the deep fried pickles, they were a great size served with a fantastic dill dip.
