Really fun bar, with a lot of character that stay true to it's Pittsburgh roots. That atmosphere is both quirky and funky with a lot of really cool things going on all over the walls. Great selection of on tap, and coolered beers, definitely shouldn't have any trouble finding something to please you. Proper glasswear, which is a pretty big deal to me, I feel like most places lack in this area. Really extensive list of sandwiches, I think my girlfriend and I ate there on an off-day, as the sandwiches weren't as good as we had been told.

All in all, a staple amongst Pittsburgher's in need of a good beer on tap, and a must see if you're in the area.

Huge portion sizes of fantastic food really make Fat Head's stand above the rest! You'll have to wait a bit for a table occasionally, but that wait is worth it once you see their very large selection of beers. Their own beers are great and they carry a slew of other craft brews you can enjoy.
Check it out if you're ever down on the South Side of Pittsburgh.

Had a very nice time here this afternoon with the wife and kids. Not as kid-friendly as the N. Olmstead location, and a bit crowded, but we came in pretty much during the lunch rush. Excellent tap list. Great Fat Head's choices on tap (I had Sorcerer and she had Hippy Sippy), and a bevy of other great brews to choose from as well. Wide variety of styles. I thought the waitresses/bartenders/greeter were really nice, especially as we brought in kids and a 6 month old in a stroller (I guess we contributed to the crowdedness)! The food was good, and there was a ton of it. Overall, just a fun time, and a no-brainer if you are in the area and enjoy great Fat Heads brews!

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
