(Please note that due to unpredictable weather, our patio is first come first serve and all of our reservations are for our interior seating)
Very friendly staff and follow covid protocols very well with table spacing and procedures. The service was quick and food excellent. The chocolate chip brownie for dessert was excellent.
Had a wonderful table outside on the waterfront. Brunch was tasty and arrived quickly. Only tiny complaint was coffee was luke warm and one our parties couldn’t get a latte as the machine was broken.
I really like the Tap & Barrel venue and the location is fantastic but I was a bit disappointed by my recent experience. I made a reservation online in advance for my birthday. It was a lovely sunny day so when we arrived I asked if we could sit outside, we were told we would have to wait 40 minutes for a table outside. We were given the worst table inside despite having made a reservation. Would have been great if there was an option to reserve a table outside on the reservation website. Apart from that we had a great time, the service was great, the happy hour deals were great.
First time back at the Tap since the virus hit
Much quieter. Bartender waited on our table. Hard to do 2 jobs w/o affecting service.
Didn’t think my meal was up to usual tap level. A dish I had had before.
Gorgeous view from the patio.
Would recommend happy hour.
Service was okay but had to ask for plates and cutlery.
The food was ho-hum. The mains were brought out before appys were finished, and they forced everything onto our tiny table instead of waiting until we were done with the appys, so we were forced to stack plates and cups on the table. Just felt like inexperience on the kitchen side of things.
Views were great, ambiance was great, our server was super nice and friendly.
My tuna salad was delicious and my two sailing buddy friends enjoyed their heartier poutine and hamburgers - it was my first venture out for a meal after the lock-down and Tap and Barrel was a great choice - service attentive and pleasant - beautiful ambiance on the deck and the subdued noise level allowed us to hear our ‘distanced’ conversation. Certainly will come again
Food is mediocre but the staff and location are amazing.
Happy Hour good value , great view from the patio and feel very safe as the restaurant is following all the COVID-19 rules
Tapp and Barrel is one of my favourite restaurants. Great for families or drinks with friends. Location is spectacular, food and drinks are top notch, and the service is excellent. You can’t go wrong planning a meal here for any occasion.
We've had better experiences there but this time it wasn't great. Service and food were both in a scale of 'Not Good to Meh'. Nobody seemed to really care. I know it's an "unprecedented time" but nobody seemed to care about being there. I usually leave good reviews but it was a sub par experience.
It was good and well set up
Great everything greta great great great great great
Our server was from Gallway. She was absolutely charming and super helpful. Simply excellent.
This was perfect to celebrate our engagement and the service was awesome.
Good sized patio. Food okay but nothing special.
There were many servers around us, yet we frequently had to ask for things they didn't bring us, such as; side plates and cutlery to eat our shared food with, soy sauce and chopsticks for the sushi as well as getting a second round of drinks. Also, it was half price wine and we ordered 2 bottles of Prosecco and were charged full price. Because we were in a rush to leave no one noticed until later and had to make 3 phone calls to get a refund. In the end, the problem was rectified, but I don't really understand how it happened in the first place. The food was still good and we love the location and ambience. The servers were all nice, just not that 'attentive'/ 'aware' at times. Millennial's. ;-)
Good food, fair pricing, clearly marked tables with distancing measures in place.
Highly recommended, great location specially at night which has downtown Vancouver View:)
We had an enjoyable evening with some close friends. This was our first escape from home. Shared several appetizers and a few drinks. Food and service was good.
My chicken sandwich came in a bun which quickly became soggy. They used to serve them in a chiabatta sandwich, which I much prefer.
Food was great, very accomodating with menu modification request. Server (Olivia) very attentive. Quick service & all the staff are very welcoming, can feel their smile, even with their masks.😊
Great spot (Shipyards) for a bite and drink on the patio!
Always a good night out for my wife and I
Best wings in the city
Amazing food and wonderful staff ! Thank you tap & barrel !
great! we are so happy to come back! LOVE TAP & BARREL
Food was fine. Coffee was quite bad and service was slow and I had to find someone for a spoon to stir my coffee. Service not very attentive at all. Venue is nice though and outdoor patio very nice with view of harbor, Canada Place.
Excellent experience. Very pleased with the service ! Thank you!
With the reopening and COVID-19 rules the Restaurant Staff did everything to make you feel safe with the seating , cleaning tables before you were seated, distancing the tables from the other patrons
Management and All the Staff have really done a great job and will return
Terrible service. Made a reservation and was still made to wait outside in the cold for 15 minutes for a table. Asked me my name 4 times when I had the reservation code in front of them. Slow service. Beers still displayed on menu were actually discontinued.
First outing awesome
This was a great 1st visit back since COVID hit. Food & Service were great & felt very safe. They have taken the heath & safety procedures very seriously, but it still felt very comfortable. Shout out to Steve the manager for his Hospitaliy!
Decent food, great ambience. Terrible service. We were left unattended for over an hour after getting our food served.
Awesome patio, great staff, love this place and they have my favourite beer on tap; Brewhall IPA!
SHIPYARDS Tap snd Barrel was my go to for take out during the shut down and it was great to be enjoying the patio once again . As always, staff were quick, I could feel the smiles behind the masks!
Lovely place to relax with your friends and enjoying your moments
Great restaurant, good place to meet and have a talk with somebody you care about.

Nice place for a beer on sunny afternoon. Could do better with food though.
Food was very good!
