“The view speaks for itself.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

I could rant about the gourmet restaurants and other things at the top of Mt Washington, but really, its the view that most people climb the Inclines or drive up for. I recommend the Inclines, though. Not only does it authenticate the experience, but parking is a premium and its not exactly the safest neighborhood in the city.

All of the restaurants on Mt. Washington serve excellent food by exceptional waitstaff. The food and the view are the perfect pairing!

“A coffee shop and a couple of dives.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

The view from the scenic overlook of the Pittsburgh skyline was fantastic. Other than that, there is nothing to do within walking distance of the incline unless you're looking to drink.

“Love this city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

I moved to Mt Washington from south florida and I was a little nervous about what a big change it would be, but I LOVE it here! The people are so nice and friendly, the views are amazing, you will never run out of amazing restaurants or interesting and fun places to go. Everyone should move here! (Or at least visit!)

“A great view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2012

Mt. Washington gives visitors a great view of the city of pittsburgh. You can reach it by car on Mcardle roadway, or the best way is on one of two inclines. The Monongahala or the Duquesne incline. These are counter balanced cars that travel up the side of Mt Washington. It is a great ride. Once at the top, you are on grandview ave. and there are great viewing platforms, and restaurants with views. There is a fair for the incline ride.
