This is a great place for happy hours - the apps and snacks are excellent and the drink specials are good. I have been to events thrown here as well and they put out a nice spread. the staff is nice and welcoming.

Went with a group of people. Reserved ahead of time. Had to chase the server down for drinks several times. Served appetizers without serving utensils.

My friends came to Bridgeport from New Jersey for my graduation. We had a nice lunch here. The food is good and the portions substantial.

This is a few blocks away from Webster Arena/Harbor yards, easily walked during daylight hours, not sure I'd feel safe at night. Made reservations, which seemed necessary before an event at the arena. Service was attentive, and trying to keep up with the pre-event crowd, even running at times. Delicious cocktails, and entrees were very tasty and served HOT. I... More

I ordered a burger cooked medium, - it arrived cooked well done. Patio on sidewalk. Not a place I'd go back to.

I've gone here for a few times with groupons for their bottomless brunch. Brunch food is good and their bottomless mimosa and Bloody Mary option does not disappoint. Waiters filled out mimosas up frequently. And the Bloody Mary drinks were fun to make- they give you glasses with ice and vodka, then you do the rest. They have pitchers of... More

We are staying at a Downtown Bridgeport CT. hotel while major renovations are being performed on our home. We had heard good things about the Barnum Publick House and decided to dine there last night. It is only a few blocks walk from the hotel so why not. Rarely if ever have I sat down at a restaurant, looked at... More

Food is very good. Quick service for lunch. A little on the expensive side, but a good change of pace for lunch. Salads are top notch and fresh.

I liked the design of the space and the staff was really nice. I had a grille cheese with bacon and tomato soup on the side. It was delicious. They have daily special and because it was a Monday, the special was hamburger and a beer for $10.00. I really like the food and place, but to pay $12.00 for... More
