If you enjoy craft beers, this is the place for you. Plus, an outstanding, but pricey, brunch. Full menu dining is excellent too. Seafood seems to be the specialty.

Taps has been around for a long time for a reason - good food & good craft beer. We shared 3 excellent dishes: ahi taco app, calamari app, and cioppino. All were prepared to perfection. Really, really delicious. Attentive service too.
