Good wine, Great beer and excellent food! Every one I have introduced to Tap 42 has loved it. My favorite is the Glazed Salmon Zen Bowl, but the burgers and other dishes are excellent too.

The food and service were great! We got free calamari because 2 of our entrees took longer than usual so that was very nice of them! They had good drink specials for 5 de mayo!

It has become one of our favorite restaurants - just us, or with guests.

It has been awhile since our last visit to Tap 42, since the last time we went to Tap 42 we were told dogs were no longer allowed. Upon this last visit we learned dogs were once again allowed so we will be back more often

Tap42 is always great - fun, high quality interesting food, beers are good selection and served at proper temperature. GREAT service. Every time. And that bread pudding! I have dined at 2 locations -- Fort Lauderdale and Boca...Both A+, but I prefer Fort Lauderdale...it's a bit more chaotic, but in a good way. Energy,vibe....

We love meeting here quarterly as the staff is great, the food is good, the drinks are perfect and the noise level still allows you to have a conversation. Great meeting spot

It’s a bar with the feel of a sports bar but food that can rival a fancy restaurant. Very good experience overall. Would highly recommend it. And the waiters are friendly and they work well as a team to provide excellent service.

We LOVED our Tap 42 experience. We will absolutely go back to this restaurant again. The food was fantastic and so much more flavorful than we expected. I suppose we went anticipating "bar food", but wound up getting delicious, well thought out appetizers and entrees that rivaled small boutique-like restaurants with pricey items. A good parallel may be, thinking it was going to be like Outback and getting fresh handcrafted food instead. The prices were totally fair and the drinks were outstanding. The noise level was a little too loud, but if we were with a group of friends, after a long week at work, letting off steam it would have been very energizing. We were on our way to a play and needed some conversation time so we had to overcome a lot of distraction. Regardless, we will be back. If you go definitely get the guacamole with bacon and fire-roasted corn. It was all that and a bag of chips : )

Tap 42 was so great that we went 3 times in 5 days,and each time taking someone new with us. We ranged from a party of 3 to a party of 6. I wish we had one in this area now that I am back home.
The food was always great and we enjoyed it imenensly. Our waitresses each time were great, helpful and made us feel welcome.
We really Enjoyed the restaurant.

We make a point to have dinner at Tap 42 any time we are visiting. Sometimes, multiple times. The food is excellent and we the drunken goat burger is a 5 star! The atmosphere is very noisy so I would not recommend for a romantic date but it is lively if you are just out to have fun. Prices are high but at least the food is excellent!

Tap 42 has become our favorite local spot. The burgers are outstanding; great salads; delicious salmon; huge selection of beers; and the service is always excellent.

We have referred other friends who now go to Tap 42 regularly.
