Fabulous experience for Sunday brunch. We ordered mimosas,French toast special and frittata special. All was excellent and well prepared. The best item was the Caesar salad with Brussel sprouts and kale. Absolutely the best salad ever! We’ll Be back.
Awesome will definitely be going back! Highly recommended
Cozy, good food & great service.
Love the atmosphere.
We all loved our food. Great place.
Restaurant week. Good selections. Friendly staff
We have been to Little Tap house many times in the past - about 2-3 times a year. The food is always good, but his time we rated the food as very very good. We tend to share appetizers for dinner. there were 4 of us. We had Ruben spring rolls with a spiced thousand Island dipping sauce, deviled eggs with maple, bacon and coffee dusting, and Truffle french fries. We also split the Scallop bowl, and a Scallop dinner. Everything was very well prepared, and excellent.
Great meal! If you have a larger group they push circular tables together which is a little awkward, but service is great, and they have a great beer selection.
I walked over from the Holiday for a lite evening meal. Ordered their version of Chicken Liver Mouse spread and they served it with toasted pita bread. Paired with a dark beer and I was very happy!
Very loud. Very hot in the dining area. “Ran out of Stoli”.
Had the beer battered haddock which was passable. Scallop bowl was also passable. However, the mussels were way overthought. No need for all the ingredients in the mussels. Keep it simple with a nice garlic and lemongrass sauce.
I had higher expectations for the food. The Kale Salad was excellent. Deviled Eggs were rubbery with not much flavor. Oysters appetizer special was extremely salty, first time in our lives we left oysters behind. Truffle Fries were very good but were then drizzled with something sweet and red which was not necessary.
Great waitstaff. Bartender was pretty solemn - never saw a smile or even much eye contact as we ordered drinks while waiting for our table. Everyone has an off day. We didn’t take offense. Just kind of a bummer starting the evening.
We ordered off the main menu for Valentine’s Day. We started with the mussels (highly recommend). Hubby had the Haddock and fries and I had the petit filet. My filet came out in two portions and both were overcooked. I received a glass of wine on the house as a result. I would definitely go back as this could have been a fluke (everything else was tasty) and we did enjoy Scott, our waiter.
Wish we had gotten photos, but we were just wanting to enjoy our weekend getaway together.
Wonderful menu for Valentines Day... a true treat.
Loved the lollipop chicken wings in a honey sriracha sauce. Enjoyed our salmon and filet mignon entrees but the house made desserts were the best!!! Mud pie was not heavy and dense just packed with chocolate goodness!
LTH fish and chips with Bissell Bros Substance. Just had it for lunch! Perfectly fried and very tasty cole slaw and tartar sauce. As always, service was great.
We came here for a brunch on a Saturday with a reservation but didn’t need one- place just opened so was very quiet. Our server was super nice and attentive. The food was awesome and the mimosas weren’t bad either ;) definitely would recommend if your looking for a yummy brunch.
Hands down the best deviled eggs in town! One of my favorite places.
Great atmosphere. Friendly staff and owner. Food overall was wonderful. Had scallops and found them to be a little too salty. Would like to see a little more variety in the cocktail menu.
Our service was excellent and the food was absolutely outstanding. This is my favorite place to eat in Portland and I wish I could eat here every day
Little Tap House is one of our local neighborhood go-to gems. It gets a little noisy when it’s crowded, but that’s okay. Great service, reliable food, good location. I don’t drink beer but it looks like a destination for beer connoisseurs.
Little Tap House never disappoints! Delicious menu, great drink options and wonderful staff!
First timer. We really enjoyed the attentive service. Also the menu spans from basic (outstanding burger) to eclectic small plates. We’ll be back!

We love this place. Every special occasion we always choose LTH. Can’t go wrong 🥰
Great food and service. Our bartender Gretchen was top notch!
We had reservations and had to wait 45 minutes for a table so the reservations were pointless
out of town guests
Crowded but fun! Our waitress was terrific, too - very prompt and thorough as well as charming and efficient. Wonderful haddock - quickly fried in a tempura-style batter, great cole slaw, too. Overall, a great meal, perfectly timed and served.
Food was good. Was expecting more based on some of the reviews. The kale salad was noteworthy. We also had the Lobster grilled cheese with bacon. I felt the bacon overpowered the lobster and was not worth the price. Good craft beer selection.
Hit this place up last minute for brunch on a Sunday while in town for business. Sat at the bar despite plenty of dining room spots when we got there. We had the shrimp and grits which was fabulous- small shrimp but big flavor and additionally the stuffed French toast which was very tasty as well.
This was my second time visiting Little Tap House. I chose to come here so that everyone in our party would be happy with something on the menu. Very well thought out flavors, wait staff understands the menu, service was was great! Keep up the good work, we will be back!
Great place. Busy on Saturday night but excellent farm to table fare.
Great service from entering the door to walking out. Both owners (mom and daughter) greeted us and made us feel at home. Food was very good and tasty. Would highly recommend to anyone in the area.
