This is a fine place to eat if you aren't looking for anything special. They have standard American fare and a good beer selection.

We were two people, we share a plate and two beers and it was 50 dollars. Meat too much cooked. Not worth it at all

My wife and I went for dinner...everything we ordered had to be sent back due to poor preparation. Wine order was never delivered. Finally just left and went elsewhere to eat. Wait staff seem completely under manned and unable to provide proper service. Lot's of great places to eat in this area of Bethesda...pass this one by.

Went to ATR after work for drink and quick dinner. Took bartender at least 10 minutes to acknowledge me and then she gives me wrong drink. After waiting another 10 minutes to get her attention, I ordered Southern Chicken Salad. When it arrived, it looked terrible -- dark fried and the chicken looked grey. I tried a small bite which...

Located on the busy restaurant row in downtown, I met my girlfriend here after she got off work on a Friday night to have a little date night. We chose this place because it had a bustling atmosphere and seemed down-to-earth and inoffensive. Plus, it had outdoor seating and it was very nice that evening. A very clearly annoyed hostess...

I stopped in American Tap Room for couple pints of beer and also had hummus and wings. Beers were good. Hummus was much more bread (looked like pizza base) with balsamico dressing than hummus. Wings were kinda ok.

Food was ok, however my colleague had a chickenburger that was not cooked well. The waitress did however not ask anything when almost the complete burger was still on the plate. When the ordered side dish was not available she got fries without even being asked if she would like something else. Next time we go somewhere else.

I went here with some friends and was really surprised by how great the food was. We had a flat bread caprese pizza, truffle fries with Parmesan and some calamari and it was hard to choose a favorite. We also had the peach bellinis and a blackberry champagne drink that was delicious. Would definitely return here.

The atmosphere and food were really good. We came in last minute with a party of 12 and they came through big time. Our own table with a great young man server. He said he did a stint in Russia so kudos for him. He recommended great local craft beers and was prompt on the appetizers and drinks. Thank you... More

Description
This is American Regional Cuisine at its classic, pub-inspired best. The food is fun and what we like to call “approachable”. You’ll also enjoy some twists on the classics with taste-inspired ideas like our Dirty Caesar Salad and Greek Turkey Burger. At the American Tap Room we believe in using local ingredients as much as possible and, yes, everything we serve goes well with beer. Ranging from weekend brunch, to a casual lunch outing or an after-work gathering in our bar, each dining experience is uniquely enjoyable. Enjoy your time with us on our outdoor patio, inside by the fireplace, or by booking an event in our private room.
