Manito Tap House is a great place to go with friends and family. The food is sourced from local vendors , when possible, and their soups are amazing. Great selection of beer and the staff is very knowlegeable. I like the sample flights and the reasonable prices for the quality of food. They have indoor seating, bar seating and outdoor seating available.

I've had some inconsistent experiences with this place so held off reviewing. I think I have a pretty good bead on it now.

A - Sitting at the bar is better than the dining area imho. The place is too damn loud overall and they need some acoustic dampening. However, in the warmer months the patio is very nice and I do like the very beer-centric decor.

Q - Lots of great beer on tap and usually a very wide variety of styles. Something like 50 taps.

S - When this place first opened I had some incredibly slow service. They have improved in the speed of service lately although they are still crowded and slow sometimes. However, I chalk this up to their popularity so can't really fault them that too much.

F - The food is very good and they usually have some fresh or new options from week to week. The soups are great.

Where to begin? I absolutely love the tap house. They strongly follow this site with their selections and have 50 rotating taps ( paired with a map on their menu of alcohol content, beer advocate rating, ibu, beer qualities, etc). Like any beer lover's paradise they have a taster set at a fairly reasonable price with selection of six choices.
The quality of the beer poured from the taps is top notch. Very clean taps and all the servers here know their beer! I am told that they have two servers who have completed the first level of cicerone certification, which is definitely a plus. For the selection , this is probably the best place in town! They are very savvy about the beers they have on tap and do try and keep it local, craft and import ( which makes it all the better).
As far as the service quality, i would say it depends. I have received both very good and very mediocre service here. I think since its a fairly newer business though that the service has definitely improved!
The food is hit and miss. The burgers here and yam chips are top notch. Everything else i tried was alright. i don't think ipa really works well in clam broth personally.
I am told the counters have all been done up with refurbished barn wood, which is definitely impressive and lends to the overall atmosphere. During early evenings and weekends this place definitely gets its traffic. If you prefer less crowds, id recommend coming here on a Sunday or on a weeknight after 8 pm. They usually do a happy hour later in the evenings and on Sunday as well.

Manito Tap House is a gastropub located on the edge of the Mainto shopping center.

Atmosphere is nice. Newly remodeled, and very clean. There is a lot of stainless steel and concrete, with a touch of wood grain in the decour. Fixtures (restroom) are sustainable (green) fixtures. There is a rich wood grain, under glass bar top. A bike rack made of old bike frames is located at the front door. Seating for around 75 probably. It can be a bit noisy when crowded.

Quality is good to excellent. They have a wide variety of top shelf micros from both regional and international brewers.

Service is just OK. They seem kind of slow starting instead of being right there when you first sit down.

Selection is excellent. 50 taps and not a macro in the bunch. 4 of the handles are nitro taps. They also have a modest selection of wine and cocktails

I did not not try the food but looks like trendy pub food. Yam chips. Three bean burgers. Avocado this and that.

Value is very good. $4.25 - $5 per pint. $16 - $20 pitchers Happy hour includes $1 off drafts and appetizer specials.

Notes: Frosted glasses on request. Growler fills.
