Wood-n-Tap Bar & Grill in Farmington, Connecticut is one of a group of restaurants by the same name in the Greater Hartford area and lower part of the state. Open daily at 11:30 a.m., the Farmington site is located in what once was The Keg on the corner of an intersection along Farmington Avenue.

The main dining area has a casual ambiance with dark decor booths and tables accented by overhanging lamps. The rear section tables are next to long patio windows and connected to a patio that overlooks a pond.

In the tavern is an eye-catching stone fireplace, a bar, television – usually tuned to sports, booths and a long center table with high stools. It is especially popular on weekend nights.

The menu offers pizza, burgers, sandwiches and wraps – a tasty vegetarian burrito, as well as, an assortment of  “This n That” appetizers – try the soft pretzel basket served with Honey Dijon. There are “Famous Bar Bites” to choose from, salads, clam chowder and a daily soup. Sweet potato fries are among the side dishes.
