Visited this place for lunch. It's a little less than a mile north of Ashley Phosphate in a nondescript shopping area on the east side of Dorchester Rd.
The shopping area and Steel City itself look pretty new. The interior is mostly brick & wood of a comfortable size, not too large or small. There's an outdoor patio which will probably be great when the weather cools a little in the fall. The bar is separated from the dining area by a shoulder-high brick wall. The dining area has both tables and booths. As you can tell by the name, the decor is centered around Pennsylvania and its teams.
The place was quite busy for lunch with lots of Air Force personnel there. Despite the traffic, our server was efficient and prompt.
The tap list was impressive for a pizza place in greater Charleston. Even though South Carolina eased its beer laws a few years ago, many restaurants have been slow to recognize the interest in craft beers, but not Steel City. There were about ten taps, and all but two were worthy craft, the two being Yuengling and Blue Moon. The Adjunct Lagers didn't take up tap space, thankfully, but were on the bottle list. The rest were a tasty combination of styles and breweries including a local or two, one of which was the Belgian White Thai from Westbrook. There were beers from Founders, Sam Adams, Victory & Stone among others, and styles from pale ales to stouts. Pretty much something for everyone. I ordered a Bell's Two Hearted, which arrived promptly.
The food is basically Italian-based bar food and the menu is extensive. Pizza by the slice or whole pie, calzones, subs, salads, pastas, wings, wraps and something they call weggies which looked to me like paninis, but what do I know? I ordered their signature wedgie, the Godfather, which came with a choice of sides. I chose the pasta salad. The sandwich was quite flavorful and large. Between it and the pasta salad, I could only eat half of the sandwich and took the other half to go. The pasta salad surprised me by having as many ingredients as pasta, which is often not the case.
My beer and sandwich came to about $15 which is par for the course in this area, and a real value IMO for the size of the portion and the craft beer selections. I'm looking forward to a repeat trip to sample their other menu items and beers on tap.
