Meet the owner

It’s been nearly four years since The Underground Tap & Grill opened its doors in downtown Edmonton, in 2012. They quickly set themselves apart from other establishments by having 72 taps of beer, a vast selection in a city that had not yet seen the explosion of interest in microbreweries that was to come.

But, even through the rise of craft beer in Edmonton, The Underground Tap & Grill has been able to solidify its niche in the local market. They remain the bar with the most Alberta-based brews available on tap in the city, no small feat for a hidden gem in the basement of a building in the downtown core. “Our focus is local,” says general manager Kris Anthony. “We put a lot of thought into not having overlapping styles of beer. We want to have a selection of flavours on our taps at all times so patrons can experience the differences and the options.”

With seating for 145 guests, the bar is surprisingly spacious. When you enter the building, you have to descend on an escalator to get to the door of The Underground, but don’t let it deter you. As soon as you walk in and see the glowing bar and the continuous row of taps, any second thoughts will fade away. This is no seedy underground establishment; this is a fine-tuned hub that just so happens to be downstairs.

    The food, drinks and service were amazing. I can't express my gratitude to how well everything went with a large party of 25. Annie and Mandy were very friendly, helpful and catered to all our needs. Everyone was very happy with the food and drinks. The atmosphere was perfect.

    Atmosphere is excellent, lovely decor, great beer selection. Food was okay at best. The service was lackadaisical and that's being generous. No refills on drinks, server disappears during service. Multiple other employees would not take initiative to help the table regadless of an issue as we were told they were not our server. We were not asked how our meal was until it was almost completed and during our service. If we had just gone for drinks I could see this being a good place... Would not recommend for a professional dinner.

    We loved the atmosphere. We were disappointed in the food. First off - they had a Halloween 'deal' for a pretzel and it wasn't the soft kind you get at the stadium, it was a little stick with some cheese around the bottom for $1.50. It wasn't a huge deal but definitely felt mislead and ripped off. I had tacos that I asked for no ranch/ no sauce. It came out with sauce so the server took it back. She came back out stating there was no sauce. I had to physically show how sauce came off on my finger. My husband and friend got steaks and it seems the cooks switched them as he wanted his medium and my friend wanted it well done. They did another steak for my husband which was still poor quality that we fed to our dog after. TLDR - go for drinks not for food.

    While I was there, the crowd was younger and subdued. Expected for the time of day - 5:30 pm. It got livelier as it got later. Service was okay. Friendly but not knowledgeable about the beer nor the food. Tip suggestion on the POS machine starts at 20%. The service wasn’t that good. Food was great. I had the wings and chacuiterie plate. Both were fabulous. Beer was topnotch. Loved both IPAs I had.

    We had a group of 7 work colleagues and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals! However, one meal came out at least 5 mins later than the others, but this person said it was really tasty, so it was okay. The server was very good. The only downside was the soup of the day - borscht - it was more like a vegetable soup...it was very tasty, but I wouldn't call it borscht. Everyone said that they would come back again.

    Service and food were great. Monday night steak special was better than I expected! The only negative was due to a very loud patron at the table next to us....not much you can do about that except have another beer! Looking forward to checking the place out for their other daily specials as well.

    A good bloody caesar in Edmonton

    A good bloody caesar in Edmonton

    A basement pub on Jasper Avenue, the Underground Tap & Grill is known for their vast and varied draft beer selection, but they also offer an incredibly original caesar: the Campfire Caesar. Likely dubbed campfire for its smoky barrel aged spirits, this take includes rye, Scotch and bourbon. Definitely different, but highly lauded as an amazing caesar.

    The pulled pork nachos here are not for the faint of heart. These bad boys are prepared with Underground’s Asian pulled pork and are stacked with fresh jalapeños, tomatoes, onions and loads and loads of cheese. You can get the vegetarian version but who are you kidding?
