We were on foot and needed to get dinner in this neighborhood and were willing to have burgers. The ones we got were overcooked and dry with a huge bun and not much evidence of the swiss cheese and mushrooms that was spozed to be there. I liked that they offered cole slaw as an alternative to fries, but it... More

Although this has been a staple near where I live, I have stopped frequenting for drinks or food. They seem to have a difficult time keeping a cook and at one point, the kitchen was closed for almost a month. The very last time was when we popped in for a drink on a Friday night Happy Hour. We wanted... More

Flew to Pittsburgh for a few days and met up with a few old coworkers. We reserved a table with no issues. The waitress was amazing, attentive, and remembered all drink and food orders without writing anything down. The food was decent but pricey. Onion rings tasted like batter fried water. Zero flavor. The fries with crabmeat, chicken fingers, and... More

Found ourselves here when D's Sixpack and Dogs was too full. Was glad to have tried it, as we now prefer the Map Room to D's! Great Irish-pub-type dinners. Fish and chips, stews, etc. We've eaten here several times when we want simple, tasty comfort food. My partner likes the beer selections. Atmosphere cozy, not too noisy, and unpretentious.

I've driven past this gem a thousand times and never stopped. We were there last night and what a pleasant surprise. First, it's one of the few pubs that had an excellent selection of single malts. The food was good but nothing outrageous yet. A new Chef is on board as of last week so I'll be back to see... More

Stumbled into The Map Room at the end of a recent Saturday night. Didn't try the food, but the beer selection was good and the service was very friendly and helpful. Atmosphere was very relaxed, my 2 friends and I found a quiet booth to just hang out and talk. If you're looking for a "happening" bar this probably isn't... More

Consistently delicious fare at reasonable prices. The salads are ample, and appetizers like their tasty zucchini planks with a mild horseradish dipping sauce are an old favorite of ours. They offer a nice selection of sandwiches and more than a few entrees if you're looking for a heartier experience. Nice atmosphere, and a wonderful owner/proprietor. Local Irish music on Sunday...

Wandered in here on a late Sunday afternoon after cycling through Frick park. What a find. A best kept secret. Superb service from my waitress, Stephanie, who also found time to tend bar. I ordered a polenta cake, which I'd never heard of before, and it was one of the best meals I've ever had, and I'm one of the... More
