The Tap was SO amazing. My boyfriend and I went to Boston for a Celtics game, and found ourselves loving this bar more than the actual game! The wings there are great, the service is superb, and the action is crazy. When we were there Bruce Jacques was performing and he made the night that much more amazing! I HIGHLY recommend checking out this bar!

This used to be one of the greatest dive-type concepts in a sea of tourist traps and cheesy irish concepts. A fun casual place, good entertainment, good dj's. The food was great with oversized portions and the staff was top notch, friendly and fast. It was simply the only place I wanted to go.


Three boobs bought the place. They remodeled the place to look like a pseudo-Euro restaurant, removed all the charm and all of that comfortable vibe. They fired the staff and replaced them with a bunch of clowns who just don't have a clue about service, one of them looked like they actually just came out of the crack den. The manager was so drunk he couldn't stand up. The menu is a cross between bar slop and pho-upscale garbage. The portions are lousy. The door staff actually let a homeless guy come in and belly up right next to me, I actually almost vomited from the smell of urine and body odor.

I'm not one to write reviews about anything, but I was so appalled and disappointed I just couldn't believe I had wasted my hard earned money there. I would have had been more satisfied if I took the 50 dollars me and my friend spent and just lit the money on fire.

Avoid this place like the plague, trust me.

What a terrible experience. My friends and I went here the night before Thanksgiving. We showed up a little before last call for a drink. we were sitting at a table to the side when a bartender started screaming that everyone had to leave, it was only 1:30 and the place was still full! We sat and proceeded to finish the last of our drink when she continued to curse at everyone, then flew out from behind the bar over to us and commanded us to "Get the f-ck out of MY bar" we tried to calmly explain that we were on out way out but she was intent on being abusive and belligerent. The whole group of us has worked in the service industry for about six years and never treated anyone so shamefully. This place would be alright if they didn't let people mistreat thier paying customers!

The food is most excellent. I had the cape cod club. It was one of the best club sandwiches I have had in a long time. Chef Patrick Sheehan has done a marvelous job with the menu. Boston's best kept secret!

If more people knew the quality of the food served in this establishment, the place would be packed. For the price, it can't be beat.
