Tap & Barrel is a Vancouver born and bred restaurant group with three locations, all situated in the vibrant waterfront neighbourhoods of Olympic Village, Coal Harbour and Lower Lonsdale. The restaurants offer innovative on-tap beverage programs exclusive to craft beer and premium wine made in British Columbia along with seasonally inspired food menus
We were there last night (Saturday night) for a large work Christmas party, about 20+ people. I didn't catch my servers name but I wanted to make sure she got recognition... We were a loud boisterous group who moved around a lot but she was impeccable in remembering who ordered what and taking care of us. Food and drinks were fine, but the 5 stars I am giving are for her.

Have been to different pubs and restaurants in and around Vancouver but this place has one of the best patio seats and a breathtaking view.
The food and drinks were good but I would go back to this pub for the views rather than the food. Highly recommend to book a table if you are going in groups.

5 🌟 for beer selection. 5 🌟 for location and patio. 2 🌟 for food. The food is just not good. But that's not why I go here.
I keep coming back for the expansive patio on the seawall and people watching while I throw down some beautiful beers.

Location is stunning as expected, but like many restaurants in Vancouver now the prices are too high. The food quality and drink choice are not nearly good enough to demand the cost of the evening. $7-10 a beer is too much. $18 for a salad is outrageous. Put taxes and tip on the top and it’s not affordable by most people. Service is middling for the most part. Also there is no free parking in Olympic village anymore making it less appealing to go now.

After seeing the price on the menu list, you would expect the food to match up to your expectation, but unfortunately I was highly disappointed. The service was good, but the food was definitely no where close to the quality and quantity you would typically get from a pricey restaurant. I ordered a $16.50 wood oven pizza, and when it came out I was surprised at the lack of toppings and the size of the pizza. I would have expected for the pizza to fill me up at least, but I left the place feeling unsatisfied, as well as the other members of my group. The price you pay here is mainly for it's location next to the scenery, not for the food. If you're looking to just have a few drinks on the patio next to a nice view then this is your place, but have really low expectation for the food quality, if you're deciding to order from their over-priced menu.
