This is a very casual place and the only place in town where you can sit down to eat steamed crabs. We ordered steamed crabs for lunch. They were small and not very meaty. I probably would not go back again. Service was just OK.

Went for seafood on July 2. When you pay $85 for a dozen crabs they better be phenomenal. Crabs were light, and had to send 2 back because they were stale.

If you want to eat big, delicious, hot crabs in a casual tavern atmosphere, go to The Taproom! We just enjoyed all you can eat crabs served by friendly and efficient servers. You are never rushed at the Taproom. We sat there for 2.5 hours...More

Absolutely, they're completely kid friendly. My daughter has been eating there since she was a toddler. The Tap Room is a full service restaurant. Children are fine, they just can not sit at the bar (per MD law).
