Welcome to The Kirkland Tap & Trotter, James Beard award-winning Chef Tony Maws’ inviting and funky interpretation of a neighborhood joint.  KT&T’s food is simple, hearty and approachable. It’s how Tony cooks at home for friends and family. At the center of the kitchen is a hard-core hardwood grill where you can see us grilling meats, fish, vegetables and other fare.

Tony has designed an affordable menu plus many weekly specials: Join us for Award-Winning Hot Dog Mondays and $2 Grilled Oyster Wednesdays; On weekends, enjoy Saturday & Sunday Brunch  10:00 am-2:00 pm and Burgers, Tacos, Sausages, Salad, and Fried Chicken  2:30-5:30. Every Sunday, there’s a special for just $16.  Remember that Kids Eat Free (and healthy) Sunday-Thursday 530-630.

Check out our expansive beer list, straightforward & delicious house-made cocktails & wines by the glass (with our  preference for wines with a bit of funk)!
