Gastro Pub
Our menu was designed with many things in mind. We want the residents of the Bridgeport and surrounding communities to have the best possible dining experience. We have planned for all of our lunch & dinner dishes to perfectly pair with our 23 beers on tap, so that our guests can enjoy the cuisine and beer as a single experience. Our chef has crafted a menu that makes it easy for everyone to find something they love – from meat lovers, to pizza lovers, to vegetarians. We use as many local farmers and distributors as we can, so our food is as fresh as it is delicious.

As is the case with many gastro pub type restaurants, the food is a bit inconsistent and you have to try everything in order to know what they do best. I assume it is due to Covid, but many of the beers were $8 a pint which is not the norm and felt a bit like gouging. The patio dining space is excellent and safe so overall, expect a good experience albeit it bit pricey and inconsistent.

Really nice space during a pandemic and beyond. Loads of windows providing natural light and natural ventilation. The food was good and the service was great.

Service was fantastic. For being a Taphouse disappointed with draft list. We ordered 2 things they were out of. We ordered 3 appetizers-wings and stuffed peppers delicious the brussel sprouts were very disappointing. First time there we will try again mainly because of the service.

Tried the Taphouse for the first time recently as I was looking for a well-heated outdoor space to dine out. Their patio is gorgeous and warm perfect for this winter weather while still maintaining good social distance and air filtration. All the servers were very friendly and attentive. The food and drinks arrived timely and were tasty - nice variety.

We had a great time and my only feedback was to add more crust on the chicken pot pie. Those 3 strips of “flaky crust” was born crust. Other than that the food was amazing and everything was great!

Outdoor dining on their 95% enclosed heated patio. We had a very pleasant experience there, from the moment we arrived and were greeted by a friendly hostess, to the moment we left. Food was good, service was good and they have a 30' TV which was wonderful for watching football.

Service is beyond excellent each and every time~ Libby is a favorite of ours~Drinks are a bit overpriced and food menu could have more choices but overall above average. The issue is Management and the way they are handling protcol on seating during Covid. Why require reservations if the managers on duty are just going to allow 4 tables to be moved together and seat 16-18 people together ( DURING COVID). The lack of filling the tables on the deck (when windows are closed) was throughly disappointing~ I think we will most likely avoid til all this passes.

We were able to dine outside safely....and minimize the impacts of the cold. All servers, employees followed all CDC rules and regulations. Everyone was friendly and very attentive. We wanted for nothing. Variety of food is great -- there is both fancy and comfort food. Good variety of beer. Lots of TVs outside...so you can see all sorts of games on sports days. Also very happy that they take reservations....with restaurants only being able to do outside....with 6 foot spacing...they are really limited. We have been turned away many times from restaurants that do not take reservations. That's frustrating. First time we have been back here since pandemic...and we would definitely come back!

A big benefit to the restaurant is its patio seating. There is a lot of fresh airflow, at least eight overhead fans on and the space is large. In terms of Covid-19, it is one of the safest restaurants available right now (IMO). The beverage selection is very good. The food is hit or miss. My Vegetarian Panni was very good. The mac & cheese no so much as it was dry, and lacking in cheese flavor. I suggest trying everything over multiple visits and then zeroing in on your favorites.

Our waiter tonight was barely around spent more time behind the bar than on the floor waiting tables. In a 2 hour period he only stopped by 4-5 times max. We would have ordered a lot more drinks and even dessert if he would have been coming over consistently. But at one point everyone at our table had empty drinks for over 20 mins while he waited on other tables with only 2 people while we had a party of 6. I’ve been here multiple times and never had service this bad. Food was great but service was actually one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had.

It's good food and drinks at reasonable prices and the outside setting is perfect for a Fall evening during COVID.
