Great Beer
We’re lovers of all good beer and are constantly updating our craft beer offering. Thirty taps are categorised into three categories – beers you know and love, beers that are worth knowing, and beers for the adventurous drinkers.

The same principles that go into great beer – fresh ingredients and crafted with care – carry through to our kitchen. Our chefs prepare food that’s as diverse as our beer range. We’ve made sure you’ll find something that matches your thirst to your appetite! You’ll also find a great selection of wine, spirits, cocktails, as well as non-alcoholic drinks.

Whether you’re catching up with friends, having a family dinner, or taking some hard earned time out just beer-cause, we look forward to serving you fresh beer, fantastic food and warm welcomes.

The main attraction is the drink sampling. When we came for dinner although most people were happy with their food the service was poor. The staff didn’t look at all interested to serve us and nobody smiled. There are so many great options now at Chermside that unfriendly staff can make a difference between coming back again or going somewhere else.

Service was, as always, fast, efficient and friendly. Food & drinks were all great, we had an excellent night.

The food came out too quick. I had ordered a steak well done, it came too soon and very pink on the inside. The steak was also very fatty and as such not good value for money, considering it wasn’t cooked as ordered. My wife hardly touched her meal either with the steak burger underdone, fatty and chewy.

Normally I would say yes, but I ordered the fish of the day and asked if there was chilies in it, server said no, whole chilies where in the sauce (chilies give me migraines). It said there was a potato (Greek name for it)mash, it was a smear on the plate. On the up side the salmon was beautiful but basically all I could eat plus the smear of potato mash on the plate. It was also very loud, but I guess that's just the venue although I would not call it energetic. I've been there before but this time I certainly didn't leave satisfied.

The only issue I have with Tap works is the lake of service. I sat at a table of 7 people for 2 hours we ate and we drank. Plates and glasses piled up to the point we were stacking them ourselves.
I’ve stood at the bar and watch staff members turn away so they did not have serve and have had to wave at staff for service when I was the only person at the bar.

Not a fan of the drink menu with only boutique ale beers but the food was nice

Value for money was exceptional. The standard of food was outstanding in both flavour and quality. The ambience of the venue was very pleasant and the staff were extremely polite. Our family was more than happy with overall dining experience at Tapworks and will definitely be back!

Yes I would. However it would be good if the tables were prepared for pre bookings before we arrive.
Thanks to one young staff member who was willing to take initiative to bend the rules a little by taking our drinks order while the bar was quiet, rather than each of us going to the bar one at a time. (It was all going on one bill afterall).

We were happy with our meals except for two things: the arancini balls had nothing in the middle of them and I asked to swap the porcini patty for the Vegie patty and was charged an extra $4 which is ridiculous.

Had a fantastic afternoon/night at Tapworks. The food was great, service was great, beer choices were fantastic.
We gave the cocktail menu a good nudge and they didn’t disappoint.
Thanks Tapworks for a great night. We will be back!

The waitress was very rude when one of our party was unable to eat the food given to them, as the ingredients on the menu did not indicate the meal was spicy. She returned to our table and told us she didn’t believe the meal was spicy, and then notably went and complained to the rest of the staff about the meal not being spicy.

Service was great although on very busy nights food can be a little slow. We had a 6:00pm Booking which was perfect. Didn’t have to wait very long

I booked a table and put a note stating it to be quiet like somewhere at the back also stated it was a surprise baby shower so we had two pregnant ladies sitting in the middle of crowds. Not cool.
