American Tap Room

1811 Library St.
Reston, VA 20190

Sitting in my hotel room in at Dulles Airport, I wanted to go out see people, grab dinner, possibly a drink and of course catch the Mets game. My search brought me to American Tap Room, and I was immediately pleased to see they had the Mets game on. This was a great environment for a weeknight and was prefect for the business traveler alone in the town. The staff was extremely friendly; at one point they switched the Mets game to show the American Idol finale, maybe they were Taylor Hicks fans? They quickly realized I was there for the game and got the Mets on one of the large plasma screens. I asked for a couple beers and ordered the Steak Town Center, a NY Strip with Peppercorn Sauce. If you remember my Riverview experience I was nuts over the peppercorn sauce, which is the reason I ordered this steak. Well when the steak came out, it looked like it was burned. It definitely not, but the look was not appealing. The taste was ok; portions of the steak were over cooked, while some were medium as requested. I wasn’t too pleased with the steak. Perhaps I should have stuck with a burger or something else. This place has a lot of options, so I would go back, but would not order the steak. Might just be that American Tap Room is a burger and beer type of joint.
