Tap House Grill in Westmont has a very corporate feel to it, cookie cutter. A big horseshoe bar greets you as you walk in with tables on three sides. It's a big space the bar seating approximately 50 and the tables seating many more. Big screens hang on the walls and above the taps. It's your typical sports bar/eatery with burgers, tacos, and chicken wings on the menu although the things I've eaten there have been well made and at a reasonable price.
The real reason to stop by Tap House is because you're in the southern burbs and have a hankering for some good beer, they won't disappoint in that regard. The bar is stacked with 36 taps, all craft, mostly local and great lakes breweries but there are taps from across the country. The selection usually focuses on new releases, seasonals, and draft only selections. Clean lines and fresh pours as far as I've ever noticed. The wait staff has always been quick and friendly but be aware that samples do cost $1 which is kind of a joke. If you're in the area and want a good beer or two Tap House is the place to stop.

The service can be hit or miss with the waitstaff. We come here most Tuesdays for Trivia Night. Great selection of beers, both drafts and bottles/cans. A little bit of a selection for everyone from the hop heads to the PBR guys. Often has special events that are worth looking into. For sure a chain feel but a decent try at a more local-bar feel.

I was in Willowbrook for work and found this place was not very far from my hotel, and the beermenu looked promising. Place was nice enough, had a small lounge area with a big TV and other TV's throughout. I sat at the bar, they had $4 any drafts and some food specials for happy hour which was nice. They were out of quite a few things, and I'm not sure how much the bartender would have really known about certain beers, but the service was good, the food tasty, and with the happy hour prices very good, otherwise the dreadnaught would have been $9. I'd go back and recommend to anyone staying out this way, they do have a wide variety of craft beer on draft and in bottles.

Dead on a Monday night. Waited a bit at the bar for service despite that. Service more attentive after that. Pretty dark place. A bit of a dingy look to it. Sofas in one part of the room which was odd. Large outdoor patio. Some 3f signs helped. Most beers served in plain shaker pints which I don't like. They did have the glass rinser thingy before pouring which I do like. Had a 3f panzer wolf in a plainish thickish wine glass. 10 or 12 oz pour of that was $9 if I recall, yikes! 2 bros bitter end was a $3.50 special, but it was either off or bad taplines. Very soured and off. The bartender said noone else mentioned that but gave me a free half pour of apw as a replacement which was nice. Very extensive selection of craft beers, lots of taps and bottles. Definitely the best place in this part of the burbs (excluding the bavarian lodge of course). Having an updated taplist on beermenus.com is nice too.

This is a great beer restaurant. Great and revolving selection of popular craft beers, including some specialty bottles and cans. The food is consistently good and the menu is not static.
The staff are, for the most part, knowledgeable about their beer selections and there's always someone that can answer your questions. What an individual server may lack in knowledge is more than made up in friendliness and passion about the place.
I especially love that they won't drown the place with drivel from sports announcers. During games they play music, which is great for conversation or simply not hearing the play-by-play from a game you're not watching, while you can still watch the game.
My only complaint is I can't afford to go as often as I would like to. You'll pay more than you might at other places in the area, but nothing in the area can compete on overall satisfaction.
