Oysters and beer! Great combo.

I usually try to stop in here at least once or twice a month even though I have moved away from the southside. I love raw oysters and this place has the best in town. I would say that over the past few years Harry's has surpassed Rhinehart's as far as total quality of the shellfish. Now, the... read more

I was here with a few friends and we all ordered crab buckets and chicken wings. They were awesome and great value. Beers were good but no draft which was weird, because usually every place has at least couple drafts. The service could be better, but I guess its wasn't very fast because the place was crowded (we were there... More

But don't let that fool you. Generous drinks. Nice service. Prime rib on Friday night - don't miss it. Serving is huge and cooked to your specs. A local treasure.

I went to meet friends. Never been prior to this. The bar is small. Nothing fancy. Just a place to come as you are. The glass of wine was filled to the rim which was nice and the service was good. My shrimp were overcooked. I would go back if asked to meet again, but would not select on my... More

We were just in town for a couple days. Went there looking for a place to have a couple drinks that wasn't a cookie cutter place. What a great spot to hang out, the wait staff and owners are great. And there from PA even better. They really make you feel at home. Can't wait to go back next visit...thank... More

I found the place to represent ALL of the comments - good to bad that have been posted on Trip Advisor. I can understand all of those comments from good to bad. The place is a hole in the wall, no doubt. The place has a limited menu, no doubt and for me, just OK wine. I don't drink beer... More

We went passed this place a few times on prior trips and commented it looked like a dodgy biker bar. We were surprised when it was highly recommended, and a bunch of us from out of town went there for supper. When we first walked in, we had our doubts, but they were blown away. The service was excellent, and... More

this is one of those local wing / bar / pubs that is great to just go and hang out. Try the Pittsburgh Sandwich and a few wings.
