Tap House Grill Introduces Brand New Menu


Tap House Grill, with locations in Bellevue and downtown Seattle, has introduced an entirely revamped menu to accompany its extensive beer selection.

“As a restaurant, it is certainly our duty to keep current on the culinary trends; especially those that pair well with the focal point of our restaurants - beer,” said Paul Reder, owner of Tap House Grill. “Many of our dishes had been on the menu since we opened in 2002. While we had some guest favorites, we set a goal to impact every single menu item. Even the rare few that stayed on the menu received a tweak.”
