Thank you so much for helping me to put together this event last minute. We had a wonderful time celebrating and saying farewell to a dear friend. From the time we arrived (earlier than planned ...oops!) until the time we left (later than expected) the staff at City Steam was more than accommodating! The service was always friendly and prompt. Appetizers and meals were delicious! I couldn't be happier with choosing City Steam for our gathering. A huge thank you to everyone that made tonight a special memory for us!!



City Steam is a definite must for beer and pub style food when visiting downtown Hartford. It is also an excellent stop prior to attending an event at the Hartford Civic Center (XL Center), especially a CT Whale hockey game. The beer is everything you would expect from a craft brewer. Unique flavors and many styles to choose from. The ambiance is also spectacular, being set in an open floor style complete with woodwork and tin ceilings in the turn of the century, Brown, Thompson & Co. building. They have seating that is in the open, as well as quieter areas in the upper levels. The bar is a great place to grab a drink and an appetizer. The food is pub style for the most part, sandwiches, salads, etc. though they do offer dinner entrees and specials. There is a comedy club in the basement, which I have not attended. Check this place out ASAP if you haven't.

We were in town from August 19 to August 21 for the RIVERFRONT DRAGON BOAT FESTIVAL. We had an Great Experience in 2010 at City Steam Brewery Cafe. For 2011 We knew where to go for Fantastic Ambience, Outstanding Beer, Superb Food, and a Friendly Professional Staff. Friday night was the Haddock Stuffed with Crab (Big Portion, A taste to remember), Saturday was the Bangers Over Mustard Mashed Potato's, Pot Roast, and A Clam Pizza. Thumb's Up! The Coconut Ice Cream Pie with Oreo cookie crust was HUGE, Carrot Cake just out of the oven taste. Ambience Ale(IPA), Naughty Nurse, and Blonde and Blonde were clean and Very Tasty! We Called for Reservations and We were pleased when We were IMMEDIATELY Seated. I really like it when Management comes by the table to Check on our service. Last but not least Best Homemade Potato Chips! Great Job City Steam Brewery Cafe



Dear Mr. Dumond,


Last Friday evening my wife and I attended a wedding rehearsal dinner for the Clancy family at the City Steam Brewery Cafe.


I just wanted to highlight what an excellent job all the staff did at the function. I have to say that the service, food and attention to detail by the staff was second to none. All the servers were so friendly and made every effort to make sure everything went well. Please pass on our special thanks to Chris the Catering Manager and Suzanne the SUPERB SERVER for making the night such an enjoyable one.


We'll be back again!


All the best.

John and Lauren Whelan



I wanted to thank you for the great meal you provided for my Mexican Project team. The beers were matched perfectly with each course. The meal, appetizers and desert were fantastic. Those were probably the best braised ribs we’ve had in our travels, including Texas and Memphis. The service was courteous and impeccable. The Richardson Room provided the ambiance we were looking for. Each of the participants left feeling that they had enjoyed a very special thank you evening.


Thanks again for a job well done.

I just wanted to thank you for all your help planning our event on Saturday night. Everything was fabulous - the space, the food/drink and the service. Everyone had an awesome time. I would highly recommend City Stream Brewery to anyone planning an event. You made it very easy. Enjoy the rest of your summer.


Best Regards,

Many thanks for the great job you all did at our stag party. A great time was had by one and all. Also I appreciated the comments from your staff about our guests.


We will certainly keep City Steam in mind if the need for another event arises.


Again, many thanks.
