I went to Tap 42 on a Thursday night. It was fairly busy but not too crazy. We had to wait a few minutes for a table but there was bar space. The atmosphere was okay. I didn't spend much time inside. It was loud in there. Outside is nice they were having difficulty with some lighting but had it fixed eventually. The tap list is nice. I would have liked to see more Cigar City. Some of the other local beers were not so good. Service was okay (I think that's an improvement from older reviews). They were attentive, but didn't offer any beer knowledge. That's fine because I have enough beer knowledge for our party. The food was really good. The burgers are big and really tasty. This is a worthwhile place to visit that I think will get better as the management and staff adjust to the craft beer scene.

Delicious food. Plenty of on tap beers. Great bottle selection. (Came back three different nights on vacation to get BCBS) The outside seating is a more relaxed spot to sit. The point is, people, go.

The tap selection is decent, but the beer is highly priced and the food is subpar. Overall, there are a lot better places to go to for good beer in the area, like Lazer Wolf and Riverside Market

42 taps. Good beer selection. Staff was fairly knowledgeable and attentive and the place was clean. Kind of off the beaten path a bit, but not out of cab range. Didn't try any food when I was here just had a few beers. Definitely worth checking out if you are in the FLL area.

All 42 taps are craft beer. Need I say more? Well, you may not find some one time release keg, or some very rare beer, but most of the time there is a very solid selection. They will carry stuff like Enjoy By, Lagunitas Sucks, things that are released one time, just to give an example. Very affordable, and also serve from a bottle menu, which is pretty good as well.

Decided to take a walk and check this place out on a visit to the Fort Lauderdale area for vacation. Its about 15 minutes from the Beach on a nice little strip.

I arrived shortly after they opened and notice a nice outdoor seating area and a wrap around bar with seating both inside and out. The place seemed pretty big and was well kept. I sat at the long bar with about 40 or more seats. They have all the beers listed on the wall and a few TV's spread out. The bar/restaurant was very nice overall.

The beer selection was pretty good and apparently really good for Florida. I found a few local beers I wanted to check out as well as some beers from NY that I hadn't had a chance to try yet. Surprisingly they had 5 Harpoon beers on draft and a lot more from the North East which was disappointing for me because I want to find beers I don't usually have access to. Overall their selection was varied and solid. The bartender and staff definitely were up to speed on the beers and made some good recommendations.

I had the ma-hi ma-hi burger which was delicious and they had some pretty appealing options on their menu.

Overall the service was good, the good was good and the beer selection was great for the area. I would definitely recommend checking this place out whether for dinner or just a few beers. Cheers!
