Stopped here for a couple beers before the Cavs game. Excellent selection, albeit a bit on the pricey side. Didn't have anything to eat, but everything we saw coming out of the kitchen looked great. The place was packed, but the service was attentive and quick. Will definitely be back.

Always enjoy stopping in before a ballgame. Pretty nice beer selection and the food is great. Best pork tacos in the area. Service is always good. Recommended.

Finally decided to stop in to City Tap and grab some grub/beers.

Atmosphere - Typical bar atmosphere, huge bar, tons of tvs. Being a Tuesday night without games the place was very slow. 40+ beers on tap and many more in bottles.

Quality/Selection - I was a little disappointed with the tap list, many were taken up by BMC (which I guess you have to do in order to draw the pre/post game crowd) but nothing jumped out at me.

Service - Very quick but again there were only a handful of people in the place. Typical for week nights downtown Cleveland

F - Food was good, typical bar menu including burgers, wings, sandwiches and wraps.

V - Overall the selection was good enough but not quite what I expected when I heard they had 40+ taps. Also, they didnt have a beer menu which made it very difficult to select a bottle offering. We did however stumble in for "Power Hour" pricing which was the best part about the place, $2 for all beers including all drafts and bottles (Mon-Thurs 8p-9p).

Stopped in after an Indians game. It is right next to the Winking Lizard, and seemed to have a greater variety of beers.

It's a narrow bar, with an upper level and a patio. Plenty of TVs.

It was quite busy, but servers behind the bar were working hard and service was quick and pleasant.

Great selection of beers, posted on a big board behind the bar. Prices ranged from $4.50 to $5.25 a pint. There were some nice surprises, like North Peak Vicious Wheat IPA; Left Hand had a couple, as did Brooklyn.

Didn't try food, but they were on a late night menu of fried stuff and nachos.

All in all, a great beer bar for downtown Cleveland.

Stopped in recently before Cavs vs. Lakers game.

A: Place was extremely crowded. Bar was packed and finding a seat in the restaurant was difficult as well. Huge board behind bar with all 30+ taps listed with brewery and location.

Q: While I've seen better (Bodegas Columbus comes to mind), this place has an exceptional tap list, hence the name. Lots of Regional favorites (GL, Founders, Dark Horse, Bells, Arcadia, 3 Floyds, etc..).

S: Place was SUPER busy so service was expectedly slow. I never worry about service much, the beer is what I am there for.

F: Don't get the wings. They reminded me of the old mcdonalds buffalo wings. Not impressed

Value: while somewhat pricey, the selection more than makes up for it.

All in all a great place for Cleveland BA's and craft aficionados to avoid the swill drinking crowd that seems to dominate the Gateway District.
