American Tap Room: Not worth it

Lobster Roll Sandwitch and fries with
Heavy Seas Loose Cannon beer
I finally got around to trying out American Tap Room on Highland Street for dinner, and since they have been open since for a while I figured all the kinks would be worked out. Sadly, I was disappointed throughout the night and concluded it isn't a worthy replacement for Sette Bello which used to accupy the space.

Despite the promise of a tasty dinner by the backlite glowing menu and salads with local Clarendon themed names, nothing I tried was worth the price. The crab spinach dip was difficult to eat and wasn't nearly creamy enough. The jerk chick spring rolls were ok, but not worth ordering again. The toasted lobster roll was cold, and the only thing decent was the Old Bay seasoned circular cut fries. Their beer selection was rather sparse, and our waitress was virtually unknowledgable of our menu.

At least the extra large leather chairs were comfortable. Sorry Tap Room, but I'm going to agree with Yelp and say you deserve two stars.

That's a shame. Clarendon really needs to fix their food situation. A strip full of restaurants and none of them I have a strong desire to eat at...

Thanks jinushaun for the comment. I agree they could improve their food, but there are many great restaurants in Clarendon. Try Eventide or Lyon Hall for great upscale meals, or Whitlow's daily specials for cheap eats.
