My wife and I visited Piper's Pub on our first of three stops on Carson Street in Pittsburgh.

Atmosphere is definitely a British pub feel. Long bar with about 15 stools and four bar tables with highback seats decorate the main pub area. Two big screen televisions were broadcasting football games. Some nice woodworking and wainscoting. The back dining area looked a little more like a typical family restaurant than a British pub. It wasn't packed, but the layout made it seem a bit cramped. Music was light and in the background.

We perused the menu, which was largely standard pub grub, sandwiches, salads and some entrees. We decided on the Ploughman's platter, which included two big chunks of bread, Guinness cheddar and sage darby cheeses, sweet chutney spread, gherkins and apple slices. Even though this was only an appetizer, we were both full after sharing this, so we felt this was very reasonable at $8.95.

The service was friendly enough. We didn't really ask any questions about the menu or beer. Beer menus were on the tables in plain sight. They also had seperate bottle menu with scotch and wine selections as well.

Selection wasn't too bad. Very heavy on imported beers, including Bass, Fuller's, Boddingtons, Newcastle, Guinness, Smithwicks, Harp, Bellhaven, Franzi, Pilsner Urquell, Hoegaarden, Stella and Frambroise Lambic. The only craft brews they had were Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Troegenator, Wells Banana Bread (which my wife loved), East End Big Hop and Peak Organic Pale Ale.

Overall, the food was my favorite part of our visit. I found the beer selection to be a bit lacking, especially to the other two places we visited (Fat Head's and Smokin' Joes). If you want imports, though, check this place out.

As you may have heard, this is a premier spot for futbol viewing in the city, which helps to make it a very English style pub. Lots of different beers available. 20 taps at least, from what my memory tells me. Service is attentive and mature. Huge bourbon selection here also, from what I saw.

I hate the Southside (mostly during the weekend insanity), but this is a very good reason to make the trek down, despite the neighborhood being a real hassle sometimes. Not too far away from Fathead's if you want to make the two-fer.

Very friendly staff with a great whiskey/local beer selection. Had dinner last night and was blown away by the food. Amazing! A great place to sit down and have a few pints without dealing with the 21-25 year old southside hooligans. Price is a little higher but reasonable when looking at the beer selections and they come in 20oz. glasses.
