Pittsburgh beer lovers will no doubt know (and love) the Fat Head's brand. The super-popular watering hole has been a South Side fixture going on two decades. Award-winning local brewer Matt Cole has grafted a superb brewery onto that famous brand, offering fresh-made suds to go along with the mammoth Headwich sandwiches. The pub-grub menu also stocks bar munchies, salads, pizzas and barbecue. Patio.
Candles and white lights make every evening at the Merry Arts a little like Christmas in Killarney, minus the whole "Silent Night" thing.
The main attraction at this downtown bar and grill is the 40 beers on tap always fresh, always rotating. To go with, pick the fresh, hand-formed burgers on a pretzel bun. The casual atmosphere includes plenty of TVs tuned to sports, making it just right for a Gateway-district beer break.
The standard bearer of the neighborhood’s Irish-American pubs is the Public House, a snug little den offering honest food at an honest price. Both Irish and domestic beers are flat-out cheap. From its petite kitchen, the House turns out homemade soups, stuffed sandwiches and daily specials. Of course, the Friday fish fry is legendary.
Rightly praised for its gigantic stuffed and toasted grilled cheese sandwiches, this home-grown phenomenon fills bellies and buoys spirits. Fillings range from the austere to the ridiculous, such as the pair of cheese pierogies inside the Parmageddon. Wicked beer list, kitsch-filled dining room, and rockin' tunes create a festive atmosphere.
Valhalla for wing nuts, with burgers, malts and lots of car-bohydrates to rev about. The sauces range from sweet to “Atomic,” and the rib buzz will linger late into the night. As for the décor: picture the Hard Rock Café with NASCAR art instead of music memorabilia. Nice outdoor patio bar. Theme fun for the family or your pit crew.
It's not always easy to peg Willeyville, the new Flats East Bank restaurant from chef-owner Chris DiLisi, but half the fun is in the discovery. The chef's creativity and enthusiasm are apparent on the menu, which includes six separate sections and more than 30 options. Stand-outs include lightly breaded calamari, adobo-flavored shrimp tacos, and big, juicy and flavorful pork meatballs.
