I suppose if you don't like crabs and beer, don't go to the tab room. We had a half dozen garlic and a half dozen plain steamed. They were delicious! The garlic crabs were well season, unlike most placed where they just shove a tablespoon of jar garlic in the body, over cook them and call that garlic crabs. We visited on a beautiful Sunday afternoon and were pleased.

Crabs were HORRIBLE (re-heated and dry) bathroom reeked of urine......the waitress all but forgot about us........never refilled our drinks and then when we were finished we had to wait 15 minutes for the check. I wish they would just steam the crabs fresh and I would be willing to put up with the other stuff......oh well dont waist your time or money here

I will never eat there again. Wait staff was at the bar while we waited to be seated. Found out the women was one of the owners, brother and sister from Russia. Not nice people. Crabs were precooked then reheated. Very dry, very expensive.

do not go if you do not eat crabs period. My friends said their crabs were not hot, so they were not thrilled.

This was our second visit to the Tap Room. It's a neighborhood bar, and we do love a good neighborhood bar, but this one had nothing special. Saw lots and lots of crabs being purchased to-go, so this must be their specialty. Also saw lots of flies. It would be ok to eat here in a pinch, but I hate to waste a meal in Chesapeake on something that is just ok.
