Tap in, then carve your way to good pub fare

-

Having passed the relatively inconspicuous Tap In Pub and Carvery at CityGate Centre on Ferry Rd. many times, it was with a great degree of curiosity and excitement I accepted a request to write this short review. I had no idea what to expect of this neighborhood ‘pub and carvery’, and was pleasantly surprised by the casual and modern feel to this golf-themed venue.

Bedecked in a variety of golf pictures, equipment and memorabilia there is a definite sports feel, and the choice and quality of the menu more than matched the relaxed ambiance.

My wife and I had a tough time deciding on an appetizer, split between the Beef & Mushroom Bites and the Wings, No Dings, but eventually plumped for the Potato Skins, opting for one of each of their three delicious meat toppings of chicken, pork, and beef and bacon.

With a wide selection of sandwiches, burgers, pizzas, salads and sides, there is something for everyone here. Reading through the list of pizzas was enough to make the taste buds dance, and my decision to add pepperoni and roasted mushrooms to the Five Cheese option proved inspired. I honestly don’t think I’ve had a better thin crust pizza in Chicago.

My wife’s choice of the Shrimp Po’ Boy was equally well received, the crispy and succulent shrimp burst with flavor and was complemented by a variety of tasty pickles and fries presented in a cute little frying basket. Both meals hit the spot perfectly and were washed down with a combination of the locally brewed Solemn Oath and the house beer PBR, which is a steal at $2 a pint.

With the choice between restaurant and bar dining, the Tap In can cater for parties of all shapes and sizes. And over the course of Naperville Restaurant Week, which runs until March 3, there are some great deals to be enjoyed at the Pub.

The Tap In Pub and Carvery is located at 2155 CityGate Lane and is open daily 11AM to 11PM. For more info, visit tapinpub.com.
