I have driven by this place for years, but I finally stopped in a few weeks ago and I've glad I did! The beer is decent and they brew some good beers, which is always a pleasant surprise. The staff and brewmaster, Charlie, were very, very nice and knowledgable; I really enjoyed talking with them. I wasn't that hungry when... More

Traveled to this cozy restaurant for a friends BD party. Had the side room with 40 friends and family. Staff from hostesses, bartenders and waiters were all extremely pleasant and did their jobs well. Cosmo cocktail was delicious. Craft beers were good. Food was very good. Atmosphere was fun and cozy but noisey. Enjoyable evening! Wish I lived closer!

I love this place. Amazing comfort food in a Micro-brewery. The review could end there...I have been visiting Trap Rock for the past five years and have never been disappointed. They offer a seasonal menu and updated beers throughout the year. I recommend the beer sampler. For $11 you get to taste 5 or 6 of the beers on tap.... More

When you have to pay $13.00 plus tax for 2 of their own brewed beers, it's time to buy to six pack at the local liquor store. In addition, we were asked if we wanted a booth, so we said yes. However, when seated we realized that we were in direct line to the "restrooms". Not pleasant at all. The... More

Excellent choice in the menu, varied and prepared professionally. The service around the bar is engaged and knowledgeable and can explain any of the choices. Y feel like Yu are in a neighborhood establishment where people know each other. Or course this is not fine dining. But it is very good. Come with reasonable expectations and you will not be...

Baby back ribs and tile fish were excellent choices. Very good service from Frank. The only negative is that it is noisy. A little difficult to talk. Otherwise great experience.

We dined at this restaurant with 2 other couples. I was surprised that despite our reservations, we still had to wait somewhere around 20-30 minutes for our table. Our reservations were initially for 8pm and the hostess called back to see if we could move them to 8:15pm because there were a lot of people arriving for 8pm reservations. This... More

I hosted a birthday party in the upstairs room. We served appetizers and had a delicious cake. Everyone raved about the food, the beer and the ambience. Really nice sized venue for 35 people for appetizer - style. Some seating. Beautiful bar area and great fireplace.

This was our 3rd visit, when we were home for a visit, and it was excellent as always. Great menu, a wide variety, and excellent craft brews. Very nice atmosphere as well. The pretzels and the chips are great appetizers. Check it out.

Had my son's christening there in Dec 2016. Requested twice when booking that the service be kept moving at a steady pace as there were many kids at the event and my family isn't one to linger at long events - clearly Sales didn't talk to the restaurant to pass along the request, either that or the restaurant completely ignored....
