The atmosphere is fun and lively, it can get crowded on the weekends. They have a huge selection of beer to choose from, and a pretty substantial menu of embellished pub food. We all enjoyed our enormous sandwiches, if a little greasy, and especially the...More

Stopped in to this nice cozy little pub before the Pats-Steelers game on a Sunday afternoon. The place gets busy with the football crowd. We just had appetizers- mushrooms caps, quesadillas and pierogis for 3 of us. The servings are way too big. We had...More

I ordered the twisted brisket but on this visit it was full of Fat and Grissel. No brisket should taste like That. All that remodeling must have made them pick cheaper grade of meat.

Was in Pittsburgh in business and our rep suggested dinner and drinks here. Food was typical bar style choices, and the beer wasn’t anything special. Had a IPA that was ok, but tried what was so called a sour (and trust me I am a...More

We were invited to the place for a service supplier. A lot of beers, brewed locally. I tried 5 in a beer flight and I could have a very good sandwich shared with wings, good and big. Very nice place, good service, nice environment too....More
