Reviews for The Tap Shack

New owners upgraded the patio area but the friendly and quiet atmosphere disappeared about the same time. I stopped by with a friend for beer and paid for 2 at the bar while the friend was outside. Friend goes in to get 2 more and gets charged for 4 beers instead of 2 with the bartender maybe not realizing I'd already paid. I think it was a legitimate mistake but instead of refunding the money was told to just tell whoever was working next time and they would be on the full review
There were years you wouldn't get caught in this bar for all the beer in a Budweiser plant. Yet things have changed as has the name and The Tap Shack is a wonderful place to go. Not a lot of seating either inside or outside, but the comraderie especially with bartender Ron happily calling you by name and the beer selection - ooh the wonderful beer on tap - micros near and far, are enough to please the most beer snobbish drinker. And don't worry, its not the bar of 20 full review

Yes, it's a dive bar but it's it's kind of homey, has a really nice outdoor patio, and is located in a halfway decent neighborhood. The bartenders are nice and they have a nice selection of beers and could make some pretty outstanding cocktails as well. Since it's in Carson, be prepared to run into someone you know. Fun place with a good vibe, I give it a thumbs-up!
