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.

Tap is your place to go if you want live entertainment, great sports on the HUGE TV, lots of light maybe even a little breeze on your face in the outdoor, HUGE covered patio area with firepit tables and all. The owner is a local businessman and frequents the restaurant. The servers and bartenders rock (shoutout to Erin, Kimmie, Nicole & Charlie). Whether you are in the mood for happy hour with colleagues or catching up with old friends or even a data night, it's all here!

Let me start by saying our server was great and our food was cooked perfectly and very fresh. My only criticism is about the hostess who seated us and the restaurant’s COVID-19 safety issues. I had made a reservation for my family on the outdoor patio. When we checked in with the hostess she said that the only table available was one right next to the musician who was playing guitar and singing on the patio. The music was so loud at the hostess stand that the hostess had to lean very close to my face so I could hear what she was saying, even though we had masks on this made me very uncomfortable because if she was infected no mask was going to stop the spread of the virus as her lips were about an inch from my face. As we were taken to our table we passed two other tables with 4 seats on our way that were further from the musician, so I asked if we could have one of those tables, and she responded that they were for people who made a reservation, I replied that we also had made a reservation, so then she replied that those tables were for parties of 4 and we were only a party of 3. As we sat at a table not being able to talk to each other the during entire dinner because the music was so incredibly loud, we saw the parties of only TWO that were seated at those tables that the hostess said we couldn’t sit at. So she lied! Our poor server also had to put her face directly in front of our faces in order to hear us when we placed our dinner orders, again so incredibly unsafe during a pandemic. I’m shocked that the restaurant would think it’s a smart idea to have extremely loud live music during COVID that would require servers and the hostess to get within inches of customers in order to hear them.

First time dining here. We ended up on the patio which was perfect, even during a cold February night. We enjoyed food and drinks while watching sixers game on GIANT wall sized TV. We plan to be back when the walls to the patio can be open!

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.

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!
