We were there during beer week and were intrigued by their appetizer choices. We loved the pork belly nachos with the homemade queso sauce; burger was good as well. Very friendly server was accommodating; they were out of the beer we asked for so she went into the basement and carried up a new keg. Service!

My husband and I were visiting TC for the night and spent a couple hours here. There was one bartender, she had long dark hair and was dressed as superwoman as it was halloween weekend and she was great! She really can hustle and you can tell she knows what she's doing, she looks focused and moves fast! We were... More

We've been going to Union Tap and Grill since they first opened. We loved it at first but sadly, we've been watching the quality of staff and food declining, especially over the last 6 months. Luckily, we had a great waitress yesterday, but more times than not, we get an awful one with no personality. Their menu used to be... More

We walked in to Union T & G and there was no one to seat us nor a sign to wait to be seated, so we sat ourselves. Hoping to grab a bite to eat, we waited for a waitress--and waited. The one who we thought appeared to be the waitress stopped by to wipe down the table next to... More

Great menu options. Love it when I go somewhere and there are multiple things I want to try! Waiter was prompt, friendly and helpful for the always indecisive husband who needed advice selecting an entree. Price was excellent considering we were downtown, outside, and eating from menu that included lots of local produce and meats. It was his birthday and... More

Walked in for dinner and there was nobody there to greet us. After a few minutes of just standing there the bartender yelled she would be right there. Our party of 4 was seated and there was one other larger party already done eating and another party of 4 waiting for their food. Waited some time for our waitress to... More

Striped in with two families. Four adults and four kids. The team was friendly and inviting and helped us settle in. We ordered the calamari, nachos and wings to start. Five stars for the calamari and nachos but the wings need a little help. Overall good was tasty. Mahi tacos were better with corn tortillas and the cheese pizza for... More

I went to the Union Tap and Grill to see an NBA playoff game - I needed a place with a TV showing sports. I was pleasantly surprised by a really good burger, a great list of microbrews, and a generally nice atmosphere. Initially I had planned to go to Seven Monks, across the street, which I had been to... More

Had a weekend up in Traverse city. Headed out to all our favorite bars. This bar is in the midst of all the other bars downtown. We sat down and the service was slow at first until they realize we were there to get our drink on. I never tried any of the food they offer. I did realize they... More
