  • Monday through Friday 5 to 11 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 3 to 11 p.m.
Tap 79 provides a much-needed local haunt on the 79th Street Causeway. The gastropub, located just west of the first bridge to North Bay Village and the beach, concentrates on casual dining. A large focus is on burgers, made from a blend of Angus short rib, brisket, and chuck. The Tap 79 burger, served on toasted brioche, is a huge undertaking. Topped with aged Scottish cheddar and hickory-smoked bacon, it's a good value. Burgers and all sandwiches come with a choice of sides. The beer selection is small enough not to bombard you with choices but large enough to provide something for everyone. Read our full review.
