Went for seafood on July 2. When you pay $85 for a dozen crabs they better be phenomenal. Crabs were light, and had to send 2 back because they were stale.

If you want to eat big, delicious, hot crabs in a casual tavern atmosphere, go to The Taproom! We just enjoyed all you can eat crabs served by friendly and efficient servers. You are never rushed at the Taproom. We sat there for 2.5 hours...More

Came with a party of 7 on a Fri night. Had drinks, apps, and crabs. The garlic crabs were amazing, and the clams on the half shell and catfish fingers were great too. Always great food and fun here!

We love going to the tap room. We always go there for crabs when we visit and I love their hush puppies. Very laid-back. Nice staff. Not fancy but very comfortable. Great orange crushes.

Hands down the best crabs you will find in MD. Atmosphere is fun and wait staff friendly. It is a must when we entertain visitors from out of state.

Absolutely, they're completely kid friendly. My daughter has been eating there since she was a toddler. The Tap Room is a full service restaurant. Children are fine, they just can not sit at the bar (per MD law).
