Depressingly artificial upper middle class suburban ambiance. Broad selection of ok beers but staff have no idea what most of it is, and anything good has a hidden extra "markup," and no prices listed on the menu. Food was fine, clean and all, but a soul-killing place for beer fans. Then again, it’s Bellevue, so perhaps they’re doing everything right, given their local market. So if you’re a budding beer dilettante who just loves the culture of a place like Bellevue, WA, I guess you should probably go here.

Large selection, but nothing too crazy. Good prices and food.

I agree with the others about the environment, but I really like what they have to offer. Good beer, knowledgable wait staff, and tasty food.

I was ready not to like this place, but it won me over. The ambiance is a little weird--more martini bar than beer bar, neon and glitz--but a really fantastic range of draft beer and a friendly, knowledgable bartender. Not too crazy on a saturday night which I liked. Many reviews refer to skunky tap lines but I didn’t find that at all. The place certainly smells a bit of sour beer, but the beers themselves were clean and tasty.

I really wanted to dislike this place. Fancy place, Bellevue, probably uppity staff, lackluster food. None of that was true. 160 taps! OMG. And very competent taps and a bartender that could describe the many that I had an interest in. Settled into a wonderful Port Brewing Hop 15 and some great appetizers. Will be back when in the Seattle area.

Fantastic selection of taps - a few of them were out of stock, including two I really wanted to try. Service was alright - staff don’t really know their beer. I’d come back.

Lots of pretentious dickheads here. This place reminds me of an upscale Taco Mac. Their selection is fairly extensive. The inside is quite nice. I have no idea as to how the food actually tastes; I’m sure the food it decent. I enjoyed my time here, and the service was great. As is the case with Brouwers, the crowd ruins it for me.

Super selection of taps, but be sure to ask for the off-menu list of rotating specials. Probably another 25 or so, which may include eastern beers from Southern Tier, Dogfish, and Founders, as well as some of our better locals (Walking Man, Boundary Bay). Definitely a yuppified environment, but I prefer this Bellevue location to their stark venue in downtown Seattle. Working in the Midwest a lot makes you appreciate the menu items at Taphouse - kinda hard to get cedar planked salmon at an Ohio beer bar. Join the club and get 10% off during the first 10 days of the month. I like this place because my wife, who doesn’t drink beer (but is otherwise perfect in every way), can have a very nice dinner with wine or scotch while I indulge myself with great beers on tap.

The Taphouse has gotten kind of a bad rap recently with their onslaught of "lifestyle" commercials that feature pretty much everything BUT the beer or food. Service can be iffy/sporadic to downright pretentious depending on the day and time. Either way though they’ve got a ton of taps and a pretty decent happy hour. Even though they advertise over 160 taps, about 10 of them are done up with mass-produced swill and 5-6 will most likely be "out" or "unavailable". Their selection leans heavily toward beers that are more likely to be enjoyed by the general public (as they should) however they’ll also have a generous selection of excellent beers as well. There are not many places in the world where you can sit down and order Pliny The Elder, followed by Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA, followed by Arrogant Bastard, and then wash it down with a Hofbrauhaus Original...along with some cheap happy hour sushi rolls. My best advice is sit at the counter, the bartenders tend to know their stuff, the servers sometimes know their stuff and sometimes do not...however once I ordered a DFH90IPA and they brought me a scotch ale...once told of said error they quickly replaced my mis-pour with the proper one....the waitress was "amazed" that I could tell the difference...hmm.
