The Tap Trailhouse
Bar & grill with regular live music
New England · Downtown · $$
Located near historic Faneuil Hall, this classed-up spot boasts an American Revolution–inspired interior and elevated 'cookery' including 'vittles' like lobster pie and venison chili made with Harpoon stout. Powdered wigs would approve of cocktails like the rum-drenched Old Grog and craft brews flowing from 24-plus taps with handles shaped like Colonial-era guns.

Great beer selection! Was not there for food this time, but what went by smelled great -- in particular some blue crab nachos and some wings. It's not a giant menu, but there's some pub kinds of favorites. The bar was very comfortable, the bartender was super friendly and happily slinging a few samples, and it was a low-key, fun environment. The prices for beer were competitive/cheap, and even some of the more off-beat stuff wasn't especially expensive (about a 15-20% markup for some limited Allagash vs. my favorite discount store, which isn't bad at all). I look forward to more visits, and probably eating dinner there at some point.

This place has surprisingly delicious food for a bar. The service is friendly and the ambiance is fun. If you want a good meal in a fun place, try here. Only complaint is that the menu is a little small and limited.

Liked this place more than I expected, given its location by the tourist mecca of Faneuil Hall. On a quiet Thursday night after work, it wasn't very crowded, and we got a nice four top in the back. Small menu of tavern favorites with a modern twist. Superb beer selection, and generous themed flights of craft beer for a low price. Forget about the Caesar salad, chilled anonymous romaine with bagged croutons and a dab of bottled dressing. But the mains were terrific - my husband had a stellar venison meatloaf, with fresh English peas and fried onion gravy, and my steak frites had some of the tastiest fries I've had in a while, thick cut, crispy but with a creamy center.
