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 our hardwood grill where you can see us cooking up grilled meats, fish, vegetables and other fare.

Tony has designed an affordable menu plus many weekly specials:  Every Sunday, there’s a special for just $16. Join us for Award-Winning Hot Dog Mondays; $2 Grilled Oyster Wednesdays; Kids Eat Free Sunday -Thursday  5:30 – 6:30; and on weekends, when we serve Brunch from 10:00 am-2:00 pm and Burgers, Tacos and Fried Chicken from  2:30-5:30.

Check out our expansive beer list, our straightforward and delicious house-made cocktails, or one of our wines by the glass (with our usual preference toward wines with a bit of funk)!
