About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Little Tap House is a craftbeer gastropub with a farm-to-table menu. Opened in March of 2013 by a mother - daughter team; Lee Goyette and Brianna Jaro have transformed the space at 106 High Street into a convivial location where friends meet after work for happy hour, first dates later celebrate anniversaries, and families enjoy milestone birthday gatherings.

Cuisine is under the direction of Alexander Williamson. Williamson is a NY native and Johnson and Wales graduate with an extensive Executive Chef tenure in and around NYC. Looking for a change in pace, Williamson relocated his family north to Portland bringing his wealth of knowledge and dedication to honest and inspired gastropub fare.

Little Tap House offers 14 rotating taps; curated to be Maine-centric. From signature hoppy New England IPAs, to crisp and easy drinking lagers Little Tap House is a beer connoisseur paradise. Enjoy a flight of differing styles and breweries or a full pour paired with your m

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
