Honestly? South Side is one of the worst parts of Pittsburgh. Its good if you like bar culture or want a good burger and a beer. But even on a good day you see at least one gross thing or someone is very rude to you. Its just not that great of an area.

In the evening there are several dinner options and as it gets later, the bar scene comes alive. There... More

So southside is a vibrant little city within a city, i's a bit on the trendy side so its more geared toward the young adult crowd,but there is something for everyone. IF you visit the Pittsburgh area southside is worth checking out.

There is an eatery for everyone down there along with all the sweet treats you'd like and it is accessible to the river.

This is the place for trendy shops, restaurants and nightlife. A place for fun bars and not far from the center of the city.

Unless you are a twenty something year old D-bag looking to start some trouble, find some skanks and piss on someone's walk way, there are better spots all around town to eat and drink. Sure there are a couple of great craft beer spots and burger joiunts in the southside, but visit them for happy hour and get the hell... More

If your looking for something to on any given night, hit the southside. Its full of good eats, treats and drinks. It is mostly 21 year olds on weekends though and certain sections can get kinda nasty crowd. I wouldn't recommend being out later than 2am down here. Large police presence always.

South Side is the place to be for the young millennial crowd. Plenty of bars and restaurants within the 28 blocks of Carson Street.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Southside and walked along Carson Street and had dinner in a couple of the restaurants along the way. Very eclectic neighbourhood with lots of tatoo parlours. A bit seedy at night.
