Due to the fact that they sometimes promote coming to their place to watch a Pittsburgh Steeler’s game, I had been stalking the Roswell Tap on Facebook for at least a year. It had to be amazing, I figured. But every time we go to Roswell, we never seem to get any further than Canton Street.
Luckily, I convinced Suzanne (not a Steeler’s fan) that we needed to try this place that always looks so fun on Facebook! So we finally checked it out. And… I was right!
The historic home sits on land that was once owned by Roswell’s founder and namesake, James Roswell King. It has been home to other establishments, but was rebuilt after a fire in 2010 to become the Roswell Tap, a neighborhood watering hole.
The Tap menu offers all of your standard bar food: pizza, wings, a huge list of sandwiches, salads, and several other entrée selections. The most famous menu item is Jeff Foxworthy’s Original Grit Chips. Served with your choice from four dips (or try them all!), these grit chips are like a corn chip but crisper. We chose the pimento cheese and bacon jelly — you can’t go wrong!
I attempted to “eat healthy” after the chips by ordering the Pittsburgh salad. For those unfamiliar with Pittsburgh-style sandwiches, they are famous for putting the French fries on top of the sandwich. So, the salad version was a beautiful, fresh salad, topped with steak and French fries. So, I basically ate the steak, fries, and two bites of the salad. Hopefully you will be stronger than I was.
The Roswell Tap has a full calendar of weekly events and happenings including trivia, singer-songwriter night, wing night and ladies night. And they really get into football season too! I can’t wait to go back this fall during a game to enjoy one of their signature cocktails or one of the many craft beers they offer.
So if you’re looking for a fun bar setting with great food, check out the Roswell Tap. And tell them Scoop sent you!
The Roswell Tap is located at 1090 Alpharetta Street in Roswell
