This was a tough review for me for a few reasons. We were staying locally to visit the CT Science Center so based on reviews decided to try this place out. We were dressed casually and upon entry immediately saw that most of the downstairs bar and seating area was business-dressed people.....which was fine - it's a business district and... More

We stumbled upon City Steam by accident only to find a historical and magical establishment and were completely blown out of the water... It's a must for residents and visitors alike! We arrived a little before 5, I didn't expect much by the gaudy lights and feel of walking up Temple St. But, it turned out to be the light... More

In the middle of August I dropped by the establishment with a co-worker. The menu had a cheeseburger that sounded tempting. We both ordered it. It took a bit longer than what it should have to get the burgers to our table, but that was not the main problem. I ordered my cheeseburger cooked medium and my co-worker ordered hers... More

The Ribs/Pork combo and Dunkel beer were very good. We also tried Naughty Nurse. The service was good. The restaurant building is pretty nice. Nice atmosphere. Is a good place to meet up with friends.

We arrived in the evening at the hotel and needed a nearby place to eat. This is perfect as it's adjacent to the hotel and a safe walk just outside the door. Quality brews, appetizers and pizza. Friendly and fast service. Inexpensive and great value.

I went to City Steam's Brew Ha Ha comedy club in the basement of the brewery with my girlfriend and two friends of ours. I knew the beer was good going into it, but I did not expect the food to be as good as it was. I got wings and a pizza and both were delicious. The comedy club... More

Must have the fries which are crunchy and delicious. Great selection of food including gluten free options. The flight we did was a hit with a nice variety of beer. Interior is very nice with seating on different floors, neat artwork and outdoor dining.
