Simple, well-tended little place that excels at the limited menu and mission. Cozy interior clad in wood and old steel implements from farming and lumber. We only tried the tacos but they were all delicious and satisfying. Beer from local and regional brewers was fresh...More

Stopped in for a drink, a snack, and to relax after our bike ride. Quite on the patio toward sunset. Nice View. Good chicken wings, purchased at the attached deli. Nice local Pinot Noir at a fair price. Delicious ginger beer.

Stopped on our way onwards down Highway 1. The tacos and the Reuben were delicious. The selection of beers and boardgames really topped it off nicely.

with everything being so expensive in the area, it was nice to be able to buy a $4 beer and $7 tacos. And they were good. Nothing gourmet here, but it hit the spot.

The Taphouse is located right next to the Big Sur Deli and the Big Sur Post Office. We have a pet friendly, large outdoor patio with a beautiful view of the Santa Lucia Mountains. Stop by and try one of our 10 craft brewes on tap or a glass of wine. We also feature live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Come stop by and see us!
