This place is amazing because you can get crabs all year round and eat them on paper covered tables. The beer is cold and the waitresses are attentive and friendly. We come here every time we're in the area. It is cash only but there...More

The Tap Room is anything but fancy, but it doesn't want to be. It's fun and welcoming and we encountered several locals who were more than happy to chat about the town and their experiences. It's the kind of place that you feel like you...More

I've been back to the Taproom a few times recently and have found the place to be a relaxed environment with pretty good food. Service was good and prices reasonable. The clientele is friendly.

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).
