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.

The food was so good, the only thing we were disappointed in was the cookies we got for dessert. They were very dry. I've had super market cookies that were better.
But other than that, the pork belly was one of the best I've ever had. Deviled eggs, pirogies, Brussel sprouts and my husbands meatball pizza were all beyond delicious. And, as always, the beer selection was stellar.

I had the opportunity to checkout Taphouse 23 today for brunch with friends! I have been to Taphouse 23 in the past, but haven't been since COVID began..but glad we got the chance to give it a shot again!
I enjoy the openness of Taphouse 23...it was a beautiful day out and the windows were open ...it helped with the patrons comfortability level!

The waitstaff were friendly and prompt in meeting the requests made throughout the meal!

The food continues to be consistently good! Today, I had the Pork Belly as an appetizer and the Mussels for my main course! Great decisions by me I must say..both were flavorful!

There are a good variety of cocktails and beer choices to compliment most people's tastes!

I am going to keep Taphouse 23 as a cool spot out in Bridgeport!

Met friends we had not seen in a while. Our server said no rush and meant it. Good was good. Lots of variety in terms of cocktails. Wine and beer. Local beers on tap. Server made menu suggestions that were spot on.

Overall we were very disappointed. We used to live locally and loved this place, but on our visit back were very disappointed with the food, service, and value. My husband and I ordered veggie paninis which were described as broccoli, mushrooms, roasted red peppers, cheese, and a pesto aioli. What we got were mushroom, broccoli rabe, and cheese sandwiches, no peppers, no aioli, and it was served on an inside out piece of French bread. We ordered our kids kids meals, after being told options bc they had no menus. Much to our surprise out came $9 2 chicken fingers, and a $10 burger and then on top we were charged $2 a piece for a juice box. Our sons burger came out 10 min after the rest of our food, and we barely got an apology. Overall so disappointed bc this places has an awesome patio and used to be great.

Beautiful outdoor dining experience. It is enclosed but one side is totally open, like a garage door open. We had wings, pierogis, mussels and pretzels for apps. Great wings!! My husband had filet mignon special and loved it. Kids enjoyed their pizza and spaghetti. Cookies and ice cream made for a special dessert treat. Tons of alcoholic drinks to choose from... list is 2 pages... Will definitely return!

I'm sorry to say that the overall visit was only fair. The food took a very long time to come out and when it did 1/2 of us got our food while the other half waited 10 or so minutes for luke warm pizza. Also a little pricey for what we ordered. I was happy to share Mothers Day with my family so that was the best part of the day.

Food was good. We had wings, pretzels, and goat cheese pizza. The mojito was also good. The kids loved their food as well. The patio is really cool. It’s very warm so no need bundle up. We will definitely be back.

I reserved my table via Open Table, and I’ve done this 3 weekends in a row. And every time there was an issue. (No tables for us, had to sit inside rather than outside). So I asked “is there an issue because I schedule online? Or should I call to reserve?” The hostess (and I’m not making this up) told us not to come on a Saturday night because they are short staffed and Saturday nights are busy. So needless to say, I don’t think we’ll be back anytime soon. Which stinks because their pizza is really good, and so is their wine.

I had made reservations online and when we got to the restaurant they had no seating for us on the patio. They told me it was because they had two big parties come in. So they moved us to inside, which wasn’t terrible. But I didn’t think it was fair that we had a reservation for the patio and they moved us anyway.

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.
