    Food was ok. My club said on a brioche bun but it was on toast. Fries were thrown into the silver cup. Not full. And luke warm. Looked liked food was just thrown into a plate. Even my husbands $40 steak was just tossed into a plate. No plating at all Not the meal I expected.

    One of the worst fish and chips meal I’ve ever encountered. The oil was obviously not hot enough and the batter became super saturated in grease while the fish was way overcooked turning into mush. The fries were average but the coleslaw looked and tasted like it had been made weeks ago and was also inedible. The waiter was excellent giving great service and took my meal off the bill.

    Me and my parents went there for dinner and my mom ordered steak. The server brought all food together and the steak was completely cold just like its side;mashed potatoes. We asked them to change it and a lady came saying that it gets cold as they are bringing it which is not true. Everything on the plate was cold but the other 2 food were warm. They made the steak first and waited for the rest of the food so they could bring it together. But the food was delicious
    Tap & Barrel • ShipyardsResponded 7 days ago
    Hi Sophie! Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We're sorry to hear about the issue with the steak being cold, that's definitely not the standard we strive for. We appreciate your feedback and will address this with our team to ensure it doesn't happen again. We're glad you enjoyed the rest of your meal!

    we requested a specific table and that’s what we got :) I had to modify my reservation and did it by message, they replied immediately and followed through. Service was great when we got it but was inconsistent and difficult to get the attention of our server after we got our food - needed a check in to get things that were missing/needed. Excellent overall - very noisy with huge space and large parties. Great atmosphere and attitude though ! Food was good - I enjoyed the power bowl immensely!
