stopped in for lunch and tastings on a Saturday afternoon, worth figuring out the mysteries of Exit 50 Eastbound on 84. Cold windy afternoon we took seats at the bar, and were welcomed warmly. I asked about tastings, we ordered 2 flights, so 10 beers/ales were sampled. Great fun! As for food, I had the salmon chowder and 1/2 wrap,... More

Went here for lunch on Friday, during school vacation. Two adults and four children. We should have realized something was not quite right when we walked in and had to wait several minutes for anyone to even come to the hostess desk to ask to seat us. It has a warm cozy and inviting feeling so we were not bothered.... More

This was our first time at this restaurant....the service was great! We were seated immediately even though they were very, very busy. The food was beyond our expectations and our waitress Bethany G. went above and beyond for us. We will most definitely go there again.

We were a large party with a reservation. Everyone enjoyed their food and the brews were excellent. It was a great place to go after a day at the CT Science Center.

This microbrewery is a good spot to hang out in the middle of the day or late at night. The burgers are very juicy.

Have been here for dinner before but never for lunch. Menu is quite varied. Place has many areas to dine. Was pretty quiet inside compared to coming here for dinner. Service is quite good. Great place to come with a large group! TV screens and bar is available. Food is quite good with huge portions! Parking is via street meters... More

I decided to go here because I was staying at the Residence Inn downtown and I didn't want to go very far. Great place to go before or after an event or outing. I had a wonderful experience here. My waitress was extremely attentive and made great recommendations on beer and food. The place was very down to earth and... More

Never disappointing City Steam is a great place to eat, drink and have fun. From the most amazing building you have ever seen to a great burger and food selection to the best beer and service in CT. This is a must visit location. Love it. I travel 1.5 hours every month to enjoy this fantastic location

Had a great burger, ordered pink, tasty to the last bite! Tacos were just as good, with three to the plate, plenty to share. Would recommend Heidi in the Hallway to wash it all down! If going in the winter make sure you don't get a table by the front door, burrrrrr!

Have been there many times, never had a bad meal and the beers are great! Great place before or after an event in Hartford. Good for lunch before a UCONN game!
