Great selection and sandwiches, long waits for tables, rude staff,very drunk patrons,and the few times I was there it was mid afternoon ! Lots of kids, basically free roaming kids while there parents get drunk. On guy actually disciplined a kid by picking him up by his foot and holding him up toward the ceiling,while the crowd and staff roared with laughter, not for mature craft beer, shame because the potential is there

Fat Head's has the most consistently interesting tap list in the city. I can't really think of anything that would even be close. They seem to have really increased their own offerings, with around 10 of the draft lines for at least the last 6 months. Frequently top selections like IBUsive and Barrel-Aged Battleaxe are available, but it seems impossible to go wrong with a Fat Head's brew as long as it is a style you like. There are a bunch of styles that I have become interested in just by trying them here. They do a very good job of bringing in other interesting drafts too, and unlike a few of the competitors in and around the city they seem to do it within normal distribution channels. It can get crowded, and there isn't much room in the bar area. The food selection is extensive. It wouldn't be healthy to eat there too often, but you can't find better tasting bar food in my opinion.

This review is based on a single visit, though the experience was a good one and anticipate going back whenever possible. Atmosphere was friendly, patrons were friendly and polite and wait staff
cordial and knowledgeable. We got there at 2:30 pm and was told a 45 to 60 minute wait which ended up being only 30 minutes , by the time we left at about 4 pm it was wall to wall, can't even guess what the wait time was. Food portions were huge and all at our table enjoyed their meals. Beer selection was very good and varied. I tried their IPA and Imperial Red Ale and they were very good to excellent. Recommendation is a must visit when in the Pittsburgh area but expect a wait, as one would expect!

This place has great beer and food! The sandwiches and burgers are fantastic and they have a great selection of beer along with their own line of beer! Head Hunter IPA is a must when you go here. It is an excellent IPA! They have an assortment of food to order. If you ever visit Pittsburgh, PA head down to South Side for Fat Head's Saloon! You won't be disappointed!
