We came to this establishment to see a local venue, and were quite suprised! Having never eaten there - we sampled a bit on the menu prior to the band.
The appetizers we had were the house pretzel and fried mushrooms. The house pretzel was huge - but a little dry. Mushrooms were tasty.
We shared a meat lovers pizza for our meal - and DANG it was joy in my mouth!
I have to say - the help was good and attentive, and the food was tasty! The beer was cold and the music was divine! As a bonus - we could smoke! This is such a plus as the smoke smell keeps out all the nasty stink from perfumes and aftershaves that I am allergic to! Such a plus! We will definitely visit again!

Went for the wings and thought they were pretty good. Having said that, I think they would taste so much better if the owners would make the right decision and ban smoking from the restaurant. I don't know if the owners are smokers themselves but I think they must be to ignore most of the negative reviews concerning the way the smoke makes the place as well as your clothes smell awful. To think how much second hand smoke their employees have to deal with every shift they work and how much their overall health is, or will be affected is mind blowing. An employee should not have to risk their health just to earn a paycheck, and the owners have a legal obligation to provide a SAFE workplace. Anyway, food was good, just think the overall experience would be better for all if smoking was allowed outdoors only.

Food was good. Service was okay. Forgot it was a smoking bar, that was a tad annoying. Overall, not bad for the money.

While in Pittsburgh on business I met a friend for a few beers and a bit. We enjoyed our time the food and drink was good. The place was a bit smokey and loud but what do you expect from Pittsburgh.

Stopped on a Saturday evening to have dinner with some friends as they live down the street from this place. It was a bit busy but not crazy. Waiter explained that he was fairly new. He was really trying his best. There were a couple of other waitresses but they moved at a snails pace. We ordered chicken nachos and when we started eating them we noticed we tasted no hint of chicken. The booth/table we were sitting at was so dark you could not see what you were eating. We mentioned to the waiter that our nachos were missing the chicken, figuring he would just charge us for regular nachos. Instead he returns 5 minutes later with a big "boat" of ground chicken and told us we would be charged extra for it. We explained to him we had most of the nachos eaten when we told him earlier as we were starving. Then he explained that he was getting in trouble because of it. Asked to see the manager to explain and she came to our table with major attitude and blamed the waiter. I have waitressed and bartended in many establishments of all types. One thing I know as management is you take responsiblity and rectify the problem. Deal with the staff later, privately. Not impressed at all. The waiter tried his best, but unfortunately if your new and not getting the staff support you need you are chasing your tail. Took forever to get drinks and food. Food was nothing to brag about. Sadly disappointed. Won't go back. I would normally try again but after the attitude the manager gave us, 1 and done.
