We were coming back home from Eastern Connecticut when traffic on I-95 slowed us down in Bridgeport. I had wanted to go to a decent steakhouse for our October birthdays, but our hectic schedules had prevented that. So, as we negotiated traffic, I remembered that three different friends of ours had mentioned Joseph's for their steaks. We detoured into downtown... More

We all had big boy steaks (strips)and they were all excellent and cooked exactly as we ordered. Sides were also excellent (baked potatoes, mushrooms, wedge salad). Service was attentive, but not pushy. Prices were reasonable for the quality of the food and no where near as expensive as it would have been in NY.

If I want to spend mucho dollars for a so-so steak and OK sides and an average $12 glass of wine, then I guess this is the place. I wouldn't go back as there is also zero ambiance.

I've been traveling the shoreline for years, who knew this gem was in Bridgeport. There were two of us for dinner. We were told you have to start off with the bacon appetizer (which is a meal unto itself) and there you have it, Hook, Line, and Sinker. The bacon appetizer were four large pieces of 2 inch think bacon... More

With places like Capitol Grille 20 minutes away, why would anyone want to visit the armpit of New England for a poor meal at best? This is the question we are asking ourselves now after dropping $300 on what was supposed to be excellent food. The house salad was good, but that's where it ends. We all had the filet... More

If you want a great steak, take a train to New York instead it's only an hour away and more fun. This place is a Ripp Off! Not worth the $ for what they serve. Not even the best grade if meat they claim to have. They think they are Peter Luger's. NOT EVEN CLOSE! This is a steak place... More

This restaurant is the closest to Peter Lugars that you will find with actually having to drive all the way to Brooklyn

So every year our company takes us out for St Patrick's day parade. And usually my boss likes to stop here for our company dinner! The steaks are fantastic. The creamed spinach is great
