I ordered the Shrimp salad as it sounded so good. However, it was huge but had more lettuce than anything else - which was head/iceberg - not my favorite and not a lot of shrimp. Couldn't eat it at one setting. Think I will order a turkey wrap or something next time. Yes, I would go back if that is... More

This place is a great place to grab great food, taste some local brews and watch whatever sporting events that may happen to be rolling. In our case, we were in town to watch Steelers and visited on a Sunday. Lots of fans and good atmosphere. Food was great at decent value. Recommend this place highly.

I recommend this place to anyone visiting pittsburgh that wants the real pittsburgh bar food experience. The wings are awesome - great sauces but they can be quite hot so pay attention when ordering. The sandwiches are falling off the plate big. My favorite things here are the home made "chips" and soft pretzel as well. Get the honey mustard... More

A little noisy and crowded for dinner with the kids, but the food was of good quality, HUGE menu selection, and more beer than you could drink in a year. A Pittsburgh must

As a person that works in food service this place was ok. Service was friendly but the food was just ok. My husband got growler fill and realized later that the cap hasn't been fully twisted on. It was just OK.

You can not visit Southside without having a burger at Fathead's. Comfort food with friends equals a good night out. We started out here with an early dinner before exploring all the nightlife on Southside.

So this is my first review but honestly I just had to! I work as a server downtown and these reviews can get pretty ridiculous as I've witnessed first hand. But, I got off work earlier than normal this friday night and went with some friends to fatheads for dinner! We were starving and didn't come to drink as we... More

Fatheads is a South Side institution. There are multiple beers to pick from, great sandwiches. It does to be crowded with a wait but it is worth it.

Primanti's is "almost famous" but Fat Head's is amazing! Some of the craziest sandwiches you could ever think of that hold true to Pittsburgh cuisine, too. The beer selection is excellent as well whether you sample the house brewed Head Hunter IPA or one of the excellent selections from other breweries (local and far away) they have on draft. It...

Large selection of different styles and really great atmosphere. Not the cheapest place in town but definitely one of the greatest.
