Lyndale Tap House

The Tap House specializes in Baltimore Style Pit Meat. This preparation involves rubbing a high-quality piece of meat with a special housemade spice mixture and allowing it to marinate for three days. The meat is then seared on a specially installed pit grill which chars the outside and cooks it juicy and tender on the inside. Finally it is sliced paper thin and served on a kaiser roll. A variety of meats are pit grilled in this fashion and served according to your desires. Popular choices include the Pit Beef served with raw onions and homemade horseradish sauce or the Pit Pork served with buttermilk coleslaw and sweet habanero barbecue sauce. Additionally, a diner can choose from a menu including gourmet hamburgers, home baked pretzels, ale steamed mussels, shells & cheese and a full selection of desserts. Vegetarian options are available and our staff would be happy to accommodate dietary needs.

"The service here was impeccable. Let us take our time with menu and beer list but checked on us frequently enough to be efficient. Nice variety of local beers and the cheese curds!! Oh, the curds!! Yum.
However, when it came to the entree, the pit was unimpressive. Tasted reheated and the sauce was overpowering. Though the service was excellent and beers were adequate, I don't know that I'd pay that price for a meal there again."

"I went with a friend and we both really enjoyed our meals. We started with the bean dip which was nice although maybe a more interesting bread with it would be better. The dip itself was good. We both chose pit beef sandwiches, I had the Thai Dragon and my friend had the Italian. We both loved our sandwiches and the sides. We also ordered wings to go and those were good the next day as well. Nothing fancy about the place but a great place for a quick lunch or group dinner and beer. I'll be back for sure!"

"They have a great happy hour 7 days a week. 2 for 1's on all tap beers from 4-7. The apps are $2 off as well and the scotch eggs are fantastic. Their signature sandwiches are spot on, and if you like spicy try the Thai Dragon. A great place to go for any reason, including watching sports. Our server was one of the best servers we have had in a LONG time!"
