Foursquare Tips

  • Order the pork chop for two and the chicken.
  • You gotta love it when one of the countrys top chefs goes lowbrow with a smoky house- made hot dog (pork and beef) in a house-made pretzel bun and keeps it simple.
  • A pork chop is unadorned but for charred broccoli rabe pinned beneath it like Wile E Coyote under an anvil. It is also unbelievably good, juicy, with serious heft, infused with smoke from the grill.
  • Super busy spot, food is delish, very cozy atmosphere, sit at the bar and watch the kitchen in action. Food: broccoli rabe, oysters, fried pork ribs were our fav small dishes. Portions were huge.
  • The quantities are really really really reeeeaaalllyy small ! If you are starving don't go here...
  • grilled oyster wednesdays!
  • if the grilled swordfish is available as the special, get it--- it's melty.
  • So far I think the best thing about this place was the music selection (and a pretty good lamb rib).
  • lamb ribs. (I know, right?!)
  • Get one of their snow cones - they have alcoholic and non-alcoholic!
  • I think the burger here is actually better than Craigie's; kimchi Russian dressing and also they don't run out ...
  • Good butter.
  • Go on Monday for Hot Dog Mondays!
  • Mussel stew is great and makes for glorious leftovers. Box whatever's left up and have the extra broth over rice.
  • I was there for brunch, and the place and food looked very cute, but sadly didn't taste as good as it seems. Bagels and bread were slightly overcooked.
  • The Easter colors reflect in a Margarita mixed with Pueblo Viejo. Get yours here at The Kirkland Tap & Trotter!
  • If you are in The Kirkland Tap & Trotter, try a Margarita with Pueblo Viejo Blanco.
  • Amazing selection of beers, both local and global. The fried bone in pork chop (really more like a schnitzel) was perfect comfort food. The mustard mash and sauerkraut were tangy but not overpowering
  • Their burger is the same as Craigie on Main's, but it's always available. Friendly staff, great, casual atmosphere.
  • Great burger
