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.

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.

We stopped by on Sunday afternoon to watch the Eagles game. Ample TVs, good beer and food selection. Food is more refined than typical sports bar. Great service.

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.

So I would also like the option to be able to actually sit INSIDE the restaurant, but with that said;
Taphouse 23 is literally one of the best, most comfortable, Covid friendly and enjoyable places I have been in a LONG time.
I told my wife that with the fresh air, high ceilings, indoor fire pits, table space, etc it is a model for what other places could only hope to be. I will be back there in every occasion. I hope they are doing well and continue to prosper through this sh*tty time.

This is a great place to take your family and actually sit at one table! The service was excellent and the menu was ok, but not anywhere near the content of what it used to be. I love the veggie burgers and salads and they were just not there. Hopefully, this will get back to normal. As the tables are wide, it was hard to hear the person on the opposite side. I would say they need to turn the music down a little for this reason.

This is the first time we've been back to Taphouse 23 since they have reopened. We are only eating outside at restaurants during COVID-19 so we were excited to have another restaurant with an outdoor patio to dine at. They have the most beautiful patio of any restaurant in the area. It looks pretty much the same as it did before they closed except they added a huge TV. They still have a great beer selection on tap. They have less food selections on their menu than they did before they closed but that wasn't a problem for us because we eat just about everything. We ordered the cheesesteak eggrolls for an appetizer and they were so delicious and crispy. For dinner we had the hamburger, french dip sandwich, and salmon. They were all cooked perfectly and delicious. Our server was very busy and seemed to be handling every table on the patio but she was still very friendly and attentive to our table.

Ordered the steak and it was very poorly cooked, chewy. I’ve visited pre-COVID/limited menu and had a much better experience! I’m hopeful this was just a fluke.
