I feel if you have tap house in your name, you might as well carry beers worthy of being on tap! I guess i have been spoiled by the array of beers i found at the tap house in seattle!
You lost me on that - as far as I recall, they have always had many on tap and straight from the website, they have 14 (many micro-brews) - that's decent in my books and is comparable to most bars. As for the clientele, I think the 'gangster' deal to it is more related to the party crowd that follows the owner around as he used to run one of the local night clubs. He brings them in, but in the summer, they hang upstairs at the Cedar Patio and usually just evenings. I'd call it more the pretty boy crowd personally and its usually the weekend pre-club hangout.
Food - I have always enjoyed it - very good food. Prices are too high though for westshore (better off with dinner than lunch). That's the only reason I don't go there as much as I normally wood and the only reason they are not busy as hell every day IMH. They also have lousy location so many don't even know it exists. Not much you can do about that though.
