You can head to the big city for a night out, or you can head just around the corner to The Grape Tap. Chances are, you’ll find everything you wanted right here in Wasilla. This restaurant makes people feel comfortable while indulging their senses and has one of the best selections of wine in the state.
The Grape Tap isn’t large, but they are big on service and serving the best food in Mat-Su. As you drive up to the unassuming house that encloses this restaurant, you may think you’re in the wrong place. But, once you step inside, you’ll feel as though you’ve been transported to another world.
Whether you book a table in the dining room or the downstairs cellar (and booking is advisable), you’ll be treated to the same stellar service that reviewers mention time and time again.
And yet, the service will seem to be just part of the atmosphere compared to the food. The small menu ticks all the boxes with an array of delectable starters and an 8 ounce Fillet Mignon that you’ll want to try at least once in your life. Whatever “Beginner” you choose, from the Moroccan Scallops to the Not So Cheap Dates, you’ll easily find an entrée and wine to complete your meal.
Unbelievably, you’ll find a happy hour menu with champagne cocktails and a selection of hors d’oeuvres to start your evening off right. For a taste of the good life, you’ll want to try the Cheese Flight with five artisan cheeses, fig jam, and French baguette. Pair it with the featured wine of the day and you’ll wish happy hour would last forever.
The Grape Tap is open Tuesdays through Saturdays for lunch, happy hour, and dinner. You can phone for reservations on (907) 376-8466, and you’ll find the little house at 322 N Boundary St. Why not sneak a peek at the menu on the restaurant’s website before you head out for the night?
