Located in downtown within the confines of a beautiful Romanesque building that was once a department store, City Steam Brewery Café is the only brewpub in Hartford. The venue sprawls through several floors and includes a patio and a pool room; this review is based on two recent visits to the main floor bar area. The bar is rather large,... More

We (two couples mid-50"s) visited the Brew Haha comedy club and had a fabulous evening. The comedy club is located in the basement of the city steam brewery and restaurant. The show consisted of three very funny comics. The menu had a variety of pub foods and there was a full bar featuring the house made brews plus standard spirits.... More

My daughter and I were to attend a concert down the street and wanted to drive in early to beat the traffic. We decided to have dinner beforehand and researched this place. Parking is atrocious, as in any other major city. We got lucky as we arrived a littleafter 5:00 pm when people were leaving work. I was able to... More

Had the beach blanket bingo beer which was very good. We also sampled the wings, quesadillas and pizza - all of which were average at best. The wings and quesadillas were a bit cold and the pizza was not the best we ever had but not bad either. Overall it was a good option for a quick meal and a... More

Excellent dinner and beer selection. Went for dinner and stopped back at the end of the night to sample more beer.

I at the Steam City Brewery twice while in Hartford on business. Both nights the food was excellent and the staff very professional and accommodating. I can recommend the beef medallions and the Southwest Chopped Shrimp Salad. My companion had the Seared Salmon and commented that it was quite good. There is a nice beer selection but hands down my... More

While the beer selection pleased the drinking members in our party, the food was just OK. The salads were good, but the pulled pork sandwich was dry. It was the large order of nachos that was the most disappointing. The chips were good, but the amount of each topping was minimal. Added the chicken, which was nothing special. Our server... More

The food is good, its very old fashioned inside, its beautifully designed, and their beer is very good! They also have pool tables and a nice bar area. Great place to go to for a hang out spot or just to lounge and drink!
