    The nachos were huge but they put a lot of cheese and don't let it all melt. Beer selection is great..had red beard revenge it was a good red ale. I look forward to going back for the beer selection

    City Steam is a great place for company happy hours. There's a back room with air hockey, fooseball, and other games you can challenge your co-workers to and even a comedy club to enjoy downstairs.

    Sweet potato tots were delicious and $5 beer sampler totally worth it. "Golden Apple"(cider and Fireball whiskey) was good too but they charged $5.50 for the cider and $6 for the shot... kinda steep.

    Can't go wrong with their beers here, amazing food too! End of July and they are serving the Innocence Ale, a very west coasty IPA. Yum! Oh and inlets served all day, about to try the California Omlet

    Great innocence IPA and brew house burger, cooked perfect. Average Cajun shrimp and fried pickles. Would've been smart to open before 230 when the Uconn parade starts at 4p?

    The Brewmaster burger was great. Skipped the fries for steamed veggies. Both IPA's were good. I thought the Double IPA was better but it's a big ABV beer - careful.

    Naughty Nurse is always a fav, also White Wedding is great. Food wise, the burgers aren’t too bad and the salmon is very good.

    If you like beer, you have to make a stop at the City Steam Brewery. Hint: If you’re looking to laugh, check out the Brew Ha Ha comedy club downstairs.

    The only place we know that uses steam pipes to power the brewing process. Like a dark, potent brew? Try their 22-proof Russian Imperial stout, Czars & Girls. Read more

    If you go to a comedy show, make sure to note who you want to sit with when buying tickets. The manager is rude about changing seats, since the assigned seating is apparently so important.

    A wonderful old building that used to be a giant Macy's-like store in the early 1900's. Beer is pretty good, very drinkable. Nothing adventurous but not boring either.
