We rented a private Coca Cola snow globe ... little did we know it would be a very long night! 😡

We had to wait in a long line of cars and show a MGM membership just to get in the garage...I called the restaurant to let them know we’d be late for our reservation.

We went to the former entrance of Tap which is locked up tight. I had to call the restaurant again to ask how to get in. It was never mentioned to us that there was a new entrance located in the casino.

Once at the casino entrance, we then had to wait in another line that was at least 60-70 people long, just to get into the actual casino. A shocking part of entry is that you have to remove your mask.. that was very scary with so many people around.

Once we got to the hostess she saw our reservation and took us to a table. When I told her that we reserved a Globe, she said that she didn’t see that. She asked us to stand aside while she called a manager, but then immediately sat another group...

Meanwhile, another hostess approached us, grabbed some menus and took us directly to our Globe. We had already lost all excitement about this experience at that point.

The Manager had to turn on & work our TV.
It was chilly. We appreciated the blankets.
Our waitress never wrote down our orders and got them wrong. The food was mediocre and cold. The drinks were okay.

We won’t be back.

Food honestly in my opinion was subpar, the service was extremely slow. The only redeeming factor were the two staff members who stopped to help my date and i during our dinner, as our server was never anywhere to be found.

We requested outside seating for our first date! OMG! 😱 It was PERFECT! Romantic, perfect lighting with the torches, the view of the waterfall and MGM and my date made for a perfect night! We both had the wings and house salad - light delicious satisfying and not disruptive of our conversation. Our drinks were good and the music was awesome. Didn’t appear that our first date was at a “sports bar” at all!! We will be back for another!!

We’ve been several times and enjoy the ambiance and food items. It’s a sport bar so don’t expect quiet. The waiter/bartender was available yet not overly attentive. My husband and I both enjoyed their crab cake dinner with sweet potato fries. Will recommend 100%.

I enjoyed my lunch. It was delicious! I feel like the food was not the best that I have had from this establishment but it was still tasty. It looked like they forgot my onion rings in the fry too long and they just weren’t as good as the last time I had them here. It’s inconsistent. But the food was still edible. The crab tots were presented well. Fried perfectly and topped nicely not cheaply. They were my favorite. The beer on tap was so cold and tasty! I feel like my server was good but he would take so long to come back and check on me. :( By the time he made a round back to me I didn’t need him anymore. :( But he did try to do a good job! So I appreciated that. :) this time I eat indoors. Last time I eat outdoors and that was awesome! It was nighttime. Perfect weather for dining outdoors. We always have a pretty good time when we go there! :)

The food was free so I can not even complain! I appreciate the freebie. Especially during COVID-19 time when everybody is hurting for money. The crab tot’s are Amazing! I wasn’t sure if I was going to like them at first but they are actually pretty tasty. Just wish we had a larger portion. The Portion that we received was like a kids size portion. :(

My draft beer was awesome and my onion rings we’re very good as well. The pickle that came with the burger was fantastic. The burger was not really anything to write home about. But it was really nice of them to give us a double patty burger. Overall our experience was fun and entertaining. I would recommend eating outdoors in the evening time. We really enjoyed our experience! Can’t wait for another visit! 🥰

This food was delicious especially the crab cakes. The service bluffed a little bit to be desired the young lady took too long to bring the food to the table. Overall I would go again and recommended. If you're a sports fan of the TV's are everywhere!

The food was pretty good. The service was horrible. We waited over 20 minutes for drinks. When the drinks finally came out the server placed the drinks on the wrong table. The drinks were taken back and then they came back out and tried to give them to us. We asked the server were those the same drinks as before and she said no. You could clearly see the condensation around the rim which would indicate the same drink. We refused the drinks and she came back with fresh drinks and proof she was not giving us the same drinks. That was definitely a no no due to all that is currently going on. It was so sad that she would lie when we watched the drinks go back in and come back out.

The food (Burger and Nachos) during NBA Game night was horrible. The food during other occasions are pretty good.

The beverage choice was outstanding.

Would recommend MGM Taps during the other times not NBA Game Time Menu Items.

Not sure whether or not their is a NFL menu. Be conscious!!

Tap was a fun experience. Although our first server was a bit uninterested in us. The 2nd server was great and the chief was willing to substitute hamburger on the chopped salad. It was awesome! Overall, we would go there again.
