What you expect at a pittsburgh southside bar. Food is typical bar food but it is good bar food. Stick with wings and BBQ. Cheaper drinks than a lot of places around.

Typical bar atmosphere. The food is decent but nothing to write home about. The prices are reasonable.

Great bar food, good a/c, and an amazing Grapefruit Shandy beer. Lots of tv's if you like sports. Very large beer selection.

The Bartender was the only thing good about the place. Waitress was basically non existant. The wings were good, a little small, but good. The burger was good, but was on the menu with pulled pork, grilled onions, and grilled peppers. One very small chunk of pulled pork, and about 8 chunks of ungrilled pepper on an 8 ounce burger...

Fantastic food, great specials, fabulous staff, GREAT place! We hang out here before a Pens game. We had nachos, wings, soft pretzels, and cheese sticks. Service was great, so was the food and beer!

Went to Smokin Joe's for the first time recently, which is a surprise as I've lived in Pittsburgh for over 20 years! There were three of us and we stopped in for a snack and a couple beers. They have an outstanding beer list, much better than you'd expect for this type of place. They also have excellent specials, and... More

On a recent weekend trip to PGH, stopped in here for a beer before last call. Beer selection is, of course, amazing: 60+ taps and 300+ beers = you can't go wrong. Did not have food, as it was right before last call. Barkeeps were nice enough, knowledgeably chatting us up about Boston sports (where I'm from). Will definitely be... More

My husband and I stopped in here on a Friday night and had a great time. They have a huge beer selection and I highly recommend getting a sampler. You get to pick 4 beers and the portions are huge. They also have drink specials every day. We ate the wings and while they weren't the best wings I have... More
