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 is an ATM in the lobby.

Popped into the Tap Room for lunch recently and had a heaping plateful of the best fried clams I ever tasted! My friend had the crab soup (she frequents the Tap Room and has always loved their crab soup) and we both enjoyed our meals very much. Diane is extremely accommodating and friendly and made us feel warmly welcome. I will definitely return to this great little local spot in wonderful and charming Chesapeake City, Maryland.

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 would be a "regular" on your second or third visit. The half pitchers of beer are a good deal and the shrimp we ordered was fresh, well-cooked, and bountiful. Go, relax, and enjoy the experience.

Very very good. This place has a plain atmosphere but absolutely delicious food. We had an amazing shrimp sautéed in garlic, herbs, butter & white wine appetizer, creamy fisherman's chowder (with crab, shrimp & clams), snow crab clusters, linguini with shrimp in a similar white sauce as the appetizer and sautéed soft shell crabs. Everything was super delicious here.

Having a yen for seafood while in Chesapeake City my husband, daughter and son-in-law headed to The Taproom. We originally thought of crabs but opted for fried oysters and crab cakes which came accompanied with bay fries and Cole slaw. Good choices since crabs weren't in season and pricey this time of year. Will return for crabs in summer. Bar room was practically empty but it was
