The Tap Room Restaurant Review

: The Tap Room isn't a place for your vegan buddies looking for something low in fat. It’s for someone who has just walked 18 holes carrying a heavy golf bag and is ready for a meal. The bar turns out righteous classic cocktails and has great beer and wine selections. Hot crab dip drips with Fontina, and the bratwurst platter is laden with potatoes and sauerkraut. Artichoke soup is velvety and flavorful, and yes, there are some salads. But the main event is the steak, and they're all here: prime rib or filet mignon, New York or porterhouse. Plenty of steakhouse sides are available for the choosing. However you manage to do it, save room for whatever desserts the chef is turning out that day.
