The food here was good. Pub food, but pub food that is well prepared and a step up from what you would find at a chain restaurant. I will eat here again when I come back. I had the burger and wings, my guest had the crab cakes and it was all good.

We stopped by this place for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. The food - a jerked chicken sandwich and a salad - was average; perfectly edible, but by no means memorable. The best part of the meal was the homemade potato chips. However, the experience was tarnished by simply awful service. Even though the place was virtually empty... More

The place is good and deal on grouppn would of been great if the take it during Easter Sunday. I didn't read anything in the fine print that said not valid during holiday which made the experience disappointing.

We're always looking for a good brunch place. We found this one with a Groupon deal!!! Way to go guys. The deal came with an endless cocktail, so if you like memosas and bloody marys, this is the place to go. They even have a "make your own" bloody mary station. Fun and delicious!! The service was very good for... More

Thanks to a reviewer I got the Groupon deal for Barnum Pulick House. Food is great. Portions awesome. Special note about service. We were a little late but had a reservation. ten apologies from hostess and manager that we had to wait 10 minutes. NO problem. Offered us mimosas and bellinis on the house. Then a huge platter of pancakes... More

Went for the brunch and it was choices from the breakfast menu, not your typical brunch. The food was very good though as was the service. The deal we had gave you unlimited drinks so if you wanted refills it was a good deal. The make your own Bloody Mary bar was cool. Very loud but then again it was... More

My friends and I went to this place on a Saturday afternoon. The place was almost empty and only two waiters were on staff. The waiter forgot our drinks, neglected to come to our table for over 15 minutes and forgot to bring us the dessert menu when we asked for it. He then proceeded to give us some sob... More

This place hits the mark on comfort food- the pulled pork nachos are sinful and a lunch of tomato soup and adult grilled cheese satsify at lunch (although sometimes filling can be skimpy). Atmosphere is really cool, with bits of Bridgeport history placed around the place. I have been here for brunch and lunch and plan on coming again. Can't... More

Hadn't been here yet, so we went for lunch on a weekday. We were quickly seated, as requested, outside. There was a little bit of a wait for our appetizer (calamari - quite good!), however they served our drinks promptly along with a carafe of cucumber water (very refreshing on a hot day!). Our entrees were plated nicely - we... More

My friend had a Groupon for this restaurant so we gave it a try today. Such a good choice! On Sundays they have a bottomless drink menu, including mimosas and bellinis, and an amazing build-your-own bloody mary station! The food was excellent and their portions were generous. I cant complain about the service either because our waiter was very polite... More
