It's pub food with a Pittsburgh twist. I asked for something light and a "bowl" was suggested. I had a Pittsburgh style pastrami bowl that came with pastrami fries, slaw and dressing. It was at least a 2 quart bowl. Hate to see the hungry mans size. Food was very good an inexpensive. A bar atmosphere but a place I... More

Average at best. Staff was very inattentive to me and others in the restaurant. Took a long time to get served my food and never did get a refill on my drink. I probably will not go back if for no other reason then the poor customer service in the restaurant.

I've been here quite a few times now, and every time I brought one of my colleagues they wondered where exactly I was taking them (based on the exterior). However, we've always ended up having a great time while drinking good craft beers and eating traditional Pittsburgh fare. The wings are very tasty, and they have a nice mix of... More

It's been 30 minutes and the bartender has yet to ask me what I want. There's no one at the bar. She's currently restocking things. I'm going to leave without being able to get food.

Bowsers is a little more than your average bar, and not as restraining as a nice restaurant. It's a very open restaurant with a full bar at the back. You can get all you're typical bar foods and sandwiches that mimic Primanti's without the high price tag. Their wings are ok and the "wing dust" flavoring (a dry rub) is... More

First off this place has an amazing selection of beers, and they always seem to be rotating their drafts so it's great for an adventurous beer drinking who doesn't stick to one beer. The Pittsburgh style sandwiches are awesome, they come with so much fries on them there's not really a reason to order any on the side! All that... More

Thought that I'd stop in for some grub after a long night of work, so I stopped into Bowser's to check it out. It was pretty busy, so I went to have a seat at the bar, but the stool had the sweat marks of a man's butt on it that the bartender didn't care to wipe off, so I... More

The staff were super friendly, and the beer on tap was impressive. Would have rated higher, if the place had not been so smokey! My clothes reeked of cigarette smoke afterwards. The place is known for their fries - and they did not disappoint.
