We visited early on a Friday evening. The decor was kind of industrial chi and pleasant.The waitstaff was attentive and knowledgeable, and assisted with our dinner selections. The help was needed as there were many interesting selections on the menu. I ordered a pizza which exceeded my expectations; the crust may be my favorite on the Cape, and the toppings, sauce and cheese all worked well together. Our other entree was a lobster risotto was a bit disappointing. The dish was well prepared and well presented but the lobster just got lost. I have come to believe that lobster needs to be lobster. It can't be lobster mac and cheese, it can't be lobster risotto, and unless it is really a top end version, it can't even be a lobster roll. So I think we've learned our lesson and I won't hold this against TCG. I saw far too many other interesting plates coming from the kitchen. The selection of draft beers may have been more limited than some other Main Street establishments but offered enough choices to satisfy the casual diner. Plus it was backed up by a substantial menu of bottled beers (which I appreciate given that I'm not impressed by the fussiness of a lot of draft beers). We did indulge in creme brulee and espresso for desert and found it just the right compliment to our meal.

Had a nice time in a quaint pub with a friend. Good drink, tasty apps. Friendly service. No rush, but attentive. Will come back again!

My boss wanted to take me and a couple clients to lunch in Hyannis. I suggested Tap City Grille because I love their awesome food and a casual atmosphere. Our clients ordered burgers & were astonished at the size! My boss ordered the Oven Roasted Atlantic Cod & said it was some of the best fish he's ever had, very moist & flavorful. I wanted to order the Monte Christo, but it's no longer on the menu. So I ordered the Cod sandwich, which was so big I had to use a knife and fork! Our meals all came with delicious salads, too. The service was great, too! We all loved our meals and enjoyed a wonderful lunch. We'll definitely be back!

My husband and I ate dinner here on a Saturday night, and we definitely enjoyed ourselves! The wait staff was friendly, the establishment was clean, and the atmosphere was very cozy...the perfect combination for a cold winter night!

We didn't make reservations, but we only waited about 10 minutes before being seated. Our server, Dan, had a great personality and was knowledgeable about the menu. I was also impressed with his efficiency, considering the number of tables he was servicing!

My husband and I each enjoyed a glass of wine (their alcohol menu is very large...there's something for everyone!) and we split the white truffle pizza. This pizza had no sauce, but simply mozzarella cheese brushed with truffle oil...it was amazing!

The only thing that bothered me pertained the male seating host; while leading us to our table, he asked a table we were passing if they were using their menu. Before they even had a chance to answer, he took the menu and proceeded on his way; not the greatest customer service. The customers at this table were quite dismayed.

Other than that, we had a great time! We definitely plan on returning here on future evenings...but maybe we'll make a reservation first.
