Great place for casual dinner or drinks with friends

This is a very good restaurant to get some late-night food, their kitchen serves a limited menu well after many other restaurants close. The buffalo chicken quesadilla and the pulled pork nachos are especially good. Extensive craft beer selection too.

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.

This establishment discriminates against tattoos! If you have any do not attend.<br/><br/>I was seated and halfway into my main course with a few individuals over the Conneticon weekend. A waitress came over with a white polo during my main course and asked me to put it on because the dress code didn't allow for basketball jerseys. Well why did you... More

We stumbled on this place while we were looking for a restaurant before a concert at the XFinity Center. We didn't have a lot of time, so we informed the waiter and he was great. The service was speedy yet polite and professional. The beer selection is amazing and the menu is nice and varied. We ate pizza which was... More

We were in town for a concert and came across City Steam Brewery. The service was great and the food even better. I had the Asian street tacos with Asian slaw. The says was mildly sweet and a little spicy. My husband had the blt burger.

This is a very good location for meeting up with friends, taking in dinner/drinks before a game, or going to shoot some pool. The food is high quality pub food (chicken philly with barbeque, mac n' cheese) with good appetizers. What may set City Steam apart is their craft beers are very good with the Naughty Nurse being one of... More

Walked in and approached hostess stand, the hostess was scowling and did not even bother to greet us. She looked like she would rather be literally anywhere but at work. Not a great start. The menu has a big variety. We started with the wings, which weren't great. Very fatty and chewy. We also had the quesadilla which was good... More

We were looking for a delicious lunch, inviting decor, and some privacy to be able to chat. We found all three needs met here. The decor was lovely. The staff was very prompt and efficient in giving us a quiet table and serving on us. Above all, this meal was one of the best my husband and I have had... More

I've gone here on different occasions, both with friends as well as my children. My most recent visit was with my children. I loved that the kids meals had different options such as fresh fruit instead of French fries! Our waitress was awesome and really went out of her way to make sure the kids had everything they needed. If... More
