My business has me traveling each week and I found this place on my way to the airport for dinner the previous night. Although I really enjoyed this place, the location is horrible. It is in a remote parking lot in Robinson Town Center and is looking to expand to have a patio (in the parking lot); not ideal location. However, in coversation, it sounded as if the owner wanted to open this in Beaver; let me tell you, this is better than Beaver.
The food was good and unique. Lots of local favorites here and is definitely not pub food.
The beer selection was good as well. Coming from Ohio and seeing what is outside of PA, it seems pretty normal for a place like this. However, to pay $25 for a six pack is pretty steep; especially when I can get the same thing in PA for $10 in the city.
I will come back for the food and a beer, but I will not be purchasing any thing to go.

I come to Pittsburgh 4-5 times a year and I hardly ever skip this place. First time I was here was a couple of weeks after it opened, Christmas 06. I was very impressed with the beer selection and quality. Now after God knows how many visits over the past six plus years, I'm still happy everytime I walk through their door. Finally getting around to giving them the review they deserve. Don't miss this place if you're in the area. Great beer and food.

This is the anti-strip mall restaurant, that happens to be located in a strip mall. Clearly, there has been thought put into things here. Decor is nice and well done; you don't feel at all like you are in a huge shopping center. Big bonus points for no lights in the coolers. Selection is thorough, and I actually saw things I haven't seen anywhere else in Pittsburgh. It bums me out when I see that a restaurant won't cook a burger below medium though. They always end up coming well done and cooked through when that happens. And people are saying they are focusing on higher quality food? I don't see that. Not with a pre-processed and smushed to smithereens beef patty. My compliments to the chef/cook for still being able to turn out a nice enough burger though. Will adjust my score and comments on service if I visit again as I don't want to base my entire opinion based on one experience.

Chris and Tara command alot from a deserving staff. Lots of beer knowledge, good service and a most pleasant atomosphere, especially sitting outside on the patio on a cool night.
Food selection is good, best she-crab soup ever!
Beer selection, we were drinking beers that had just come into Pittsburgh before others were geting them. Can't beat that plus they have beers that are no longer available elsewhere. Watch for their specials, plus the BIG bottle specials on Sunday which favor the wallet.
Can't go wrong with good beer and great food, they definitely have a winner!
