Very nicely located. Both inside and outside areas. Took a long time for my grilled cheese and tomato. It was very good though. Only one bathroom for both males and females. Selection of beers and wines. They were out of root beer.

The Taphouse is located right next to the Big Sur Deli and the Big Sur Post Office. We have a pet friendly, large outdoor patio with a beautiful view of the Santa Lucia Mountains. Stop by and try one of our 10 craft brewes on tap or a glass of wine. We also feature live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Come stop by and see us!
