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

Had a recent business dinner at the restaurant. Honestly, it was a decent steak house. The steak was good, well-cooked but not memorable. The sides were the safe too and the menu had plenty of non-beef options. All-in-all, it's a solid place for a business dinner.

You feel like you might see Al Pacino here. Steaks are top notch and the cocktails are perfect. Probably the best thing going in Bridgeport.

Not even close to a New York steak House. The steaks are just OK. The sauces are no where to be found. And, the prices are far above the competition..

Ok, I was out here with a client who picked the place. My bill was $360, including tip. We split 2 bottles of wine over 5.5 hours. Long day. Great steak, thick bacon is not to be missed. Service outstanding - much like a NYC steakhouse. Not cheap. Bring a lot of cash or high limit credit card.

Ok. For the prices this place charges you would think you are in Manhattan. You are not left with a great number of places to eat in Downtown Bridgetown for dinner. But if you are staying at the holiday inn you pretty much only have 3 choices. This place which is overrated and expensive. The 2 older gents working the... More

I have to start this review by saying that the staff at this place are very good- very accommodating and the wait-staff is very engaging. We went here for a "celebration" and had a large party (they tack on an automatic tip of 20% for parties over 8). However, the food was not great. The sides are rather small given... More

this steakhouse, located in downtown bridgeport, go bluefish!?, is a steakhouse from hell. a gross smell greets you as you enter from the cracked sidewalk and desolate urban decay outside, waits of half an hour despite reservations are apparently commonplace, decor that looks like an old downtown building without renovations, poor appitizer selection, aggressively disinterested waiters, and a bathroom that...

I enjoyed Joseph's steakhouse with a group of eleven business associates. The service we enjoyed was above and beyond, truly special. Two of us had the "Surf and turf." Great size lobster tail paired with an outstanding filet. We ate every last bite. A few of us were drinking diet cokes and rather than keep refilling the glass our waiter... More
