City Steam Brewery Cafe....

Atmosphere-a full building with a wooden exterior in downtown Hartford, also hosts a comedy club and other things. Many floors with lots of seats, when we went in they were in full Xmas decoration mode. Warm and comfy interior.

Quality-things seemed pretty good, all beers, food, service were just fine. Interesting stuff with the steam horn thing and others. The beers were not adventurous but they were high quality with no huge flaws.

Service-our waitress was prompt, gave us updates, no complaints. Wasn't exactly jumping up and down to give us beer information, but she was ok.

Selection-I counted eight choices, five of those were on tap. Styles from dark lager, amber lager, euro lager, IPA, stout. Nothing too crazy but enough variety.

Food-a highlight, all food was very good, I tried "The Vermonter" which was like a pancake within a burger and excellent. All the rest of my family's food was good too.

Value-for the price everything was decent quality. No problems.

Overall-a good place, very professional with character, beers weren't that adventurous but everything was good and I couldn't ask for anything more than that when visiting Hartford.

During a recent family excursion to Hartford, we visited this brewpub. Located in a beautiful old building, right in the center of town, this is a very inviting brewpub. The architecture, design, decoration, and general feel of the place is amazing. Beer memorabilia and great ambiance are everywhere. The beer selection was deep and varied. I had the Amber, the IPA, and the Stout. All were excellent. The service was professional and light-hearted, and would be worthy of a higher rating other than being a little slow. Food was mostly traditional, although upscale, tavern food. Well made but not really creative. All in all, this is a great brewpub and absolutely worth a visit.
