We consistently have a great experience at Federal Taphouse. Food and service is top notch.
We came over after the Beerfest and they were all ready for us - great service and great food!!!
Food was great. I tell you to get the pork belly tacos. Our waitress was so busy pushing us to order more beers that she never filled our water which we asked for 2xs. She took off after we said no to a 3rd round. She never asked if it was all 1 check. We would love to go back but perhaps another waitress.
Matt waiter was amazing
Our server Matt was EXCELLENT. Our food and beer was outstanding and all recommendations were spot on! Staff in general were great! Will be returning and would highly recommend.
Great service! The food was fresh & hot. The spinach, tomato jam & corn pizza is the best!
Great selection of beers from local to foreign. Food was good, served hot and timely.
Fun amiable staff which makes bringing groups of family, friends, or co-workers here a superior choice over restaurants with similar menus.
The Federal Taphouse has amazing burgers and sandwiches. I imagine the pizza is equally delicious, though I have not tried it yet. The reason I come to this conclusion is if they are able to do everything else well, I do not see a reason they would not be able to make a good pizza.
Fast service, good ambience and huge selection of beer. Food was very good a little pricey but I think worth it.
We had requested a high top. We were seated at a regular table and nothing was ever said about us having requested a high top. We were ok with it, but not sure why you ask a preference if they’re not even looking at it. Other than that, enjoyable experience.
Good eats and great service. Accomidated our group of 7 very nicely we greatly appreciated that.
Adam was outstanding! This was our first visit and he gave us THE best recommendations for beer and food. We live in NJ but we’ll definitely be back and we’ll request Adam as our server.
The food and the bar are great, the service was great. The ability to hear the person your with and carry a conversation is difficult on a busy Saturday evening. That's the only reason I didn't give everything 5 stars. They need to get an acoustic engineer in there to figure out a way to make the place more conversation friendly.
Great food (we had two pizzas), efficient and friendly staff, and a funky and friendlt atmosphere. My only complaint was the noise level. We could barely hear each other. I would still return because it’s a fun place to grab a bite and have a drink.
It was very noisy, it was sometimes hard to hear each other talk. I forgot how loud it was, not that great of a spot to catch up with friends. But the food was delicious! I got the charcuterie board, and the aoli fries, both were delicious, my friends got a four cheese pizza and margarita pizza. All the food looked good and tasted great too.
Went there to see my daughter perform this past Saturday. The staff was very friendly and made sure we had a table close to the stage. Our Waiter was extremely attentive. We were all very happy with the evening. Thank you !
If you are going there with a party of 4 people or less, go for the hightops!
More beers on tap than you could ever dream of, and the wood fired oven pizzas are pretty good, too!
We went for a Trivia night. The place was packed in the best way. The food was amazing and the service was great. It was an awesome night out!
Our service was outstanding, Lauren was very professional. Food was only OK, no standouts and my wife sent back the fries because they were burnt.
Waitress was amazing! I have multiple food allergies and she made sure I knew what on the menu had items I couldn't eat and gave me tips for the future!
Great tables, center of attention....very loud...but beer selections and perfect food canceled out the loud white noise...
Federal Taphouse is a great place to hang out with friends. The atmosphere is bustling and the beer selection is robust. I am conflicted when it comes to the menu. I love the upscale and, in many cases, coal fired pub food. I would especially recommend the coal fired salmon tacos. However, the pizza I ordered was soggy and a little lacking in cheese. Maybe just a fluke. Ultimately, my experience was positive and I would eat and drink there again.
Great food, drin, atmosphere and service, all at a fair price! Highly recommend (and definitely try the meatball app)
Would recommend for drinks or just hanging out. The food was good, but not great.
We reserved a large table for a company dinner. Our server, Matt, was very attentive and made great recommendations for appetizers to share and beer recommendations based on individual preferences. The food was good and timely for our group of 17. We'll keep Federal Taphouse in mind next time we have a company dinner!
Several beers on tap! The food is delicious. My wife has food allergies and the staff have been attentive to this matter every time we have visited. The food is delicious. I have ordered the Steak & Frites and the Bison Burgers. It is a good place to bring families, co-workers, and friends.
Finally, the staff is friendly, caring, attentive, and professional! My wife left her purse one evening. Nothing was taken from the purse and she was able to retrieve it the next day!
First , I will say this experience was not great at all ! Food was cold , server was more interested in her 20 person big table . And , when speaking to her she doesn’t drink beer. That’s a big challenge when you have 97 beers on tap , and can speak to none of them. The first time we visited a year ago , it was so memorable. Great beer and wonderful waitstaff ! It was memorable. And , actually pulled the manager over to say what a wonderful time we had. I wish we got a do over because I know this restaurant is better than that. I would recommend only to my friends that haven’t visited yet.
We ate at Federal Taphouse-Lancaster on a Saturday night with a 6:30 PM reservation. For the first hour there was not music and it was easy to hear each other's conversation. Which was good! Then around 7:30, music (not live) began to play, a little loudly but we could still converse. I am writing this because this is important to some diners.)
Two of us split the BBQ pizza which was awesome. The others had a hot roast beef sandwich and he said it was the best he ever had and the other had a burger (also very good). Service was just right, beer selection was good. Overall, we'd definitely go back again.
Nice venue. Great service. Food was good. We were there on Sunday at lunch. Didn't know it was brunch, but we made it work. Had the bibb salad (very good), the breakfast pizza and the breakfast burger. Those were also good. Will have to go back again to have lunch or dinner rather than brunch.
Service and beer choices were excellent, food was good. Spacious, but a little noisy. Picky teenagers in our group easily found meal choices and were very happy. Overall a very nice dining experience.
Overall, beer selection was great, and that's what I came to try. The food was ok, but I was hoping for a bit more quality.
The service was great and the food was delicious!
This was our first time and we had a great dinner experience, we will definitely go again!
Great selection of beers and drinks. The food was very good, wings are huge and the Bison burger was awesome. Our group ordered many menu items and there were large portions and everyone was very satisfied with their choice.
The waiter was very attentive to our needs. Looking forward to our next visit.
Reserved a table and got sat in a corner, where we wouldn't be seen. Took 10 minutes to even be seen by a server, who then seemed in a hurry. Once we had a chance to look at the menu, we ordered our drinks. The drink I wanted wasn't available, so I ordered something else, which kicked halfway through the pour, so was told it was comp'ed. Our meals came out, and while my fiance's was correct, mine was not. Waited for mine, told it too would be comp'ed as well. Burger was plain, no sauces, and we had to ask for any kind of condiments. Got the check and the wrong meal was on the bill along with my meal so they never fixed it. Finally got a corrected bill and left. Probably won't be back.
Easy to park at the connected garage. Service friendly and relatively quick. Food good and lots of drink choices. Has only a limited dessert selection.
