The Tap and Grill is located right off of Route 10 in Randolph, though it can be somewhat difficult to get to. People coming on the East Bound side will have to go past the restaurant and make a U-turn. Then, it can be a bit of a struggle to find the correct entrance to their parking lot. The building itself is either new construction or recently renovated giving it a nice clean feel.

Inside, there is plenty of seating room, both in the bar area and the two seperate dining areas. I've gone multiple times when the parking lot was full and was still able to get a table. The Tap and Grill has live music on Fridays in the bar area and it tends to be very crowded.

The hostesses can be somewhat standoff-ish unless you approach them. In other words, don't expect them to come to you to see if you want a table. Waiters and Waitresses for the most part are friendly and attentive. The bartenders (I've been served by 4 different bar tenders) are knowledgable about the products they have on tap and the drinks they make. However, sometimes it can be a pain to get their attention and place an order.

They have a huge beer selection. Their facebook page lists the numbers at 24 taps and 75 different bottles. The beer seems to be fresh as well, the DFH 90 Min I had last night was only 20 days old. They have a good list of drink specials and a large liquor selection if that is what you are into.

Food wise, I've only had some of their soups, appetizers and burgers, but what I've had has been good. Can't really comment on their main dishes.

Price wise, they are probably on the higher side. Most pints at the bar fall between $7-8 unless you hit happy hour or go when a football game is on. 7 oz pours are available for about half the price. The food seems a little pricey compared to the portions you get, but not outrageous.

Overall, the place has probably the best craft beer selection in the area. For me, it is worth the drive and the money to be able to get something more than Sam Adams Seasonal.

Excellent selection of beers. The food was quite good. I liked the atmosphere; there were a lot of beer enthusiasts. The service was excellent.

This was my first time back in about a year. I obviously waited too long... I have been on a quest for a really good burger for some time now and The “Baconater” hamburger hit the spot, completely exceeded my expectations and then some; it was out of this world. By the quality of meat (crumbling, soft delicate, melting-in-your-mouth characteristic) I assumed that it was grass-fed beef. After speaking with Chef Eric, he confirmed my assumption as well as mentally prepared me for the new menu unveiling on October 9th! His enthusiasm for gourmet, quality food is contagious and I can't wait to return to try it.

Troegs Hopback Amber Ale was a good pair for my burger. Enough flavor but not to overpowering. The selection of beer is extensive and fun. Do yourself a favor and check this place out ASAP.

Great find, right on Rte 10 in Randolph NJ. Extensive menu, lots of options from tasters to full meals, and of course, a top notch beer list. I counted sixteen taps, ranging from the good craft beer to the unique. Five were rotating.

Fun atmosphere - the place was packed but we got a table right away. Bar in the middle, tables range around. Lot of booths.

The menu is huge. Burgers, chicken, salads, entrees, apps. Too numerous to list here, but there is a lot to choose from. Prices range from reasonable to a touch high - but certainly commensurate with the area. Nothing off the charts.

Pints are priced just fine, the NJCB card gets you a buck off a pint. There is a nice feature to get a flight of four for $12, which lets you taste all of the new taps. Taker home growlers available too.

Overall, highly recommend. I will be back.

Stopped in for lunch. Had been here when it first opened. It was quite spendy at the time, but at least at lunchtime (haven't been back fir dinner yet) it seems the prices are more reasonable (craft brew pints for $5-6, rather than $7-8 a couple years ago... a nice improvement).

Good selection of craft beers on tap and a wider selection by the bottle. The keg was being swapped out for the beer I ordered, so I was given a small (6 oz or so) complimentary sample of a different beer while I waited. A nice touch. Had the barbecue burger, which was outstanding. Chef Eric LeVine, who won Chopped on the Food Network, came out of the kitchen and personally greeted us and asked about our experience and made sure everything was up to snuff. Very unexpected, but a great personal touch.

This is not a chain restaurant, and prices are pretty consistent with what you would expect from a gastro pub -- e.g. $11.50 for my BBQ burger -- but the quality is very high, the service was friendly, and the burger ranked in my top 5 of all time (no exaggeration). I will be back.

The wife and I were coming back from Philadelphia and still had time before returning to NYC. I suggested meeting with a friend who lives in Randolph, and I checked BA to see if there's any good beer spot around. I sure didn't expect to find a good beer-friendly restaurant right in Randolph!!

This place looks like any restaurant in Jersey- a mixture of Applebee's and local diner. Nothing to write home about, but comfy. We sat at a booth and had a good time.

Our server was partially retarded and/or stoned, so he would forget stuff and bring the wrong beers. Food-wise, it wasn't bad but it wasn't great either... They have a chef now who won "Chopped" (Eric LeVine) and survived cancer five times, but his "gastropub-style menu" was not ready yet so we just had average pub food. My sliders were perfectly rare and delicious, but the wife's baked brie was boring. Duck meatballs too, pricey and forgettable.

This place is indeed super-expensive. $12 for a baked brie, $13 for three duck meatballs, no beer under $6-$7.

A four-beer tasting is $15, and a snifter of Dogfish 90 is $8. I can get an imperial pint (20 ounces) of the 90 for $7 in Brooklyn!

Selection is good, that's for sure... they have 24 taps, with a bit of everything ranging from Kirin Ichiban to Leiny Sunset and Victory Prima Pils , a Cricket Hill cask (Colonel Blides), Carton's Brown, Otter Creek 20th, Yards Spruce, Flying Dog K-9, Brooklyn Monster, Bear Republic Hop Rod... a lot of bottles too, but nothing to die for.

Randolph is not exactly a beer mecca, so having this place in town is nice. Just be ready to fork out some serious cash!
