Typical American Bar

Not a huge variety of food on the menu, definitely more of a bar - very small wine selection. Small restaurant with good service. Good prices too!

We go out to dinner once a month with my wife's cousin. This dinner is one of the best pittsburgh restaurants. I never heard of a bone in filet. I didn't need a knife. This place really makes the best french onion soup. It was the best meal I have had it Pittsburgh. Check my reviews I eat out in... More

I have been to this restaurant with business associates, clients, friends and family and even for restaurant week a few times. The food is always very good, as is the service. Restaurant week is a great deal!

The manager was also our sommelier, and he provided an excellent suggestion for our dinner. All... More

Took a group of about 12 customers here for dinner last week, and every steak we ordered was over done. I have dined at several Capital Grilles and have never had that happen. Service was also lackluster, not somewhere I would go back to.

This year I had to send my steak back, as it was overdone, and the waitress was not friendly and was trying to push alchohol drinks and desserts.... More
