If you are looking for a good burger or great wings, this is the place to come in the Southside. Their beer list is huge too. Every time someone I know visits, Fat Heads is always a top 3 choice.

This was our second time there since we ate from out of town. The service is great, the food is phenomenal and my husband enjoyed the beers. Definitely worth a stop if you want a great sandwich and a beer.

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

The beer is pretty good. The heralded sandwich with sausage and perogies is only OK. The chips are just OK too (pretentious place does not allow substitutions for its marginal potato chips and makes a big point about this). I wanted to like this place...More

Trendy place on the South side of Pittsburgh. Fun spot for craft beer lovers. The food is typical pub food with a creative twist. Many sandwich and burger options for your dining pleasure or indecision! Large portions seem to be the norm. Friendly service but...More

Best to call and ask. Some have special things going on and may charge to get in or maybe they will shorten hours.
