Description: 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!

Stopped at the first place we could find to get a break from driving the PCH in the rain. What a surprising GEM this place is! They had a variety of seafood items, fish tacos, fish nachos, fish sandwiches. I had the grilled fish tacos which were AMAZING and a local craft hard cider. The interior is very rustic in decor but still updated with large screen tvs. The service was very friendly as soon as you walk in the door. I would go out of my way to eat here again!

We found this place while looking for a place to eat. Our Hertz NeverLost told us that there were a couple of restaurants within a short distance. We parked and were met quite rapidly by a guy who said that if we were looking for another restaurant – they didn’t have parking and this parking was only for the Taphouse. The outside of the taphouse was not anything special but we thought we’d try it. We entered and found the staff very friendly and they had quite a few unusual and local beers on tap. The food choices were much better than what we would expect for pub fare. They had patio (outdoor) seating as well as indoor and an adjacent gift shop. The only drawback to the experience was there was only 1 restroom and it was a separate building with a line of a half-dozen people who were waiting. It was a remote location and I’m sure the water shortage made it a bit more difficult. However, everything else about the experience in the restaurant was very good. This is definitely a place to visit if you are in the Big Sur area. The service staff is local and friendly and eager to help you.

We stopped here on the way back from the Monterey Bay Aquarium for a quick bite. We bought WAY too much food but everything we had was fantastic. The Charcuterie plate was fresh and delish. We also had pork sliders, the tacos and the lime and cilantro nachos were to die for! Here we thought we were going to a brew pub for some burgers and fries - we were pleasantly surprised!

We ate here on two consecutive nights (whilst we were staying at the nearby Ventana Campground) - the food was pretty tasty (cheaper than some other options in Big Sur) and the selection of beers on tap delightful. The only issue we had the first night was something of a wait for my girlfriend's fish tacos (I had virtually finished my own meal by the time hers arrived) - we think the order had been forgotten - but they were delicious when they did come.
