Flowers in The Attic

 1 star(s)  (03/30/2013)
“Over priced and rude service. Had one party here and two week later one at Iris and Ivy tea house. Iris and Ivy had much better pricing and service. Iris and Ivy had very good food. Flowers in the attic was twice the price and very rude front desk service. Tried it again 3 weeks later and the s... ”

Panther Hollow Inn

 3 star(s)  (03/31/2011)
“Great food and relatively friendly service. If you want to host an event with them though, make sure to get everything in writing. The owner and supervisor do not communicate with each other and things that were agreed upon one day can be completely rejected when it comes down to following through w... ”

Pittsburgh Sports Bar

 4 star(s)  (12/19/2010)
“Drinks are definitely at the right price... good liquor selection but mostly domestic beers. Looks like they're kind of under renovation... but will be better looking in there when they finish. Food seems fresh and good tasting, decent prices, but a limited menu. Their wings are kinda great thoug... ”

Flowers in The Attic

 4 star(s)  (01/28/2010)
“our experience at J Clarks was very pleasant overall..the food was fantastic! it tasted great and the portion sizes were very large and at a great price too. the staff was attentive but not very personal. overall a good place to grab a bite to eat”

J Clarks

 3 star(s)  (10/29/2009)
“Excellent place to grab a drink after work or hangout with a few friends. Not a kid friendly place at all with the game machines in the bar area. Monday nights are over crowded thanks to wing night and Tuesday's as well with Poker. Non smoking venue is a plus, prices on alcohol could be a little che... ”

The Library

 1 star(s)  (08/05/2009)
“I went here for my birthday last year and had the worst dining experience ever. I made reservations 2 weeks in advance but we still waited at the bar for 1 hour. When we finally got seated it took 2 1/2 hours (not kidding) to receive our meals. I ordered a chicken salad...which you would think the... ”

Sports Rock Cafe

 1 star(s)  (06/23/2009)
“the drinks are overpriced and so is their terrible food. I waited forever and a day just to get the food and when i requested something extra, it never came. The manager was working the bar and was horrible. His attitude was rude and non-attentive. As a former waitress i was disgusted at the ser... ”

Sports Rock Cafe

   (02/25/2009)
“Food has gone downhill. I went a few years ago to watch the Kentucky Derby and had a decent meal. Now, the burgers are flimsy and everything else is below-average. It's not a bad place to have a few beers and watch a game, but it's a sports bar, not a restaurant.”

Miller's Seafood

 5 star(s)  (02/06/2009)
“A very pleasant dining experience starting with delicious home-made tomato soup. Swordfish was excellent. Friendly waitstaff. We plan to be repeat customers.”

Sports Rock Cafe

 1 star(s)  (11/30/2008)
“This establishment should not even be considered a restaurant. This is an Adults Only establishment that does not allow They would not even seat my group and would not honor or refund gift certificates that my wife had purchased and we were not allowed to use because my son was with us at 5:30 on a ... ”

Minutello's Restaurant and Lounge

 3 star(s)  (09/18/2008)
“The hot wings are good just a little salty, they have a good crispy consistency. There pizza is a lot better than what the other reviewer said. Their prices are ok. The owner is a nice guy.”

Minutello's Restaurant and Lounge

 2 star(s)  (08/14/2008)
“The pizza is bland, but edible. However, this restaurant is in the basement of an apartment building. I lived for one year in an apartment on the 4th floor. There were incessant cockroach problems.”

Frankie's Squirrel Hill

   (06/13/2008)
“I expected a typical bar and smoke seen but I recieved was all the opposite. what I got was more like Cheers with better food, and the chef was a master in his trade, and to be friendly with the hundreds of clients, not to mention all the live original music from local artisan. blues rock new you na... ”

Miller's Seafood

 1 star(s)  (04/17/2008)
“We were the only people in the joint at 8:30 on a Saturday night and the service was horrible, the soup was salty as ever and the cashier was complaining about a call in order at the last minute.. What a turn off! We did not order any addtional items and did not use our Restaurant.com coupon. I ha... ”

Don's Diner

 5 star(s)  (04/07/2008)
“This is the best diner in the city of Pittsburgh. If you are in the area, you will not be disappointed.”

Frankie's Squirrel Hill

 1 star(s)  (03/19/2008)
“Smoker outside looks like a health hazard. You will smell like BBQ just walking in. Found the food overpriced. Crowd there looked a little too young, and a little too ready to throw down.”
