Great beer selection! Server let us sample a few before selecting our brews. Good staff, attentive and selling the brand well. The food unfortunately was average. Had the sandwich selected by Maxim mag as one of the top 5 in the US, but it wouldn't even make my top ten. Might need to stop back in and go for another... More

We went to Fat Head's on a Saturday, mid afternoon and it was as busy as any other place is at dinner. We lucked out with a seat at the bar and ordered 2 Fat Head beers (Gudenhoppy I think?). It was good and yes, hoppy. I had the buffalo shrimp with choice of wing sauce, I got the Fat... More

The beer selection here is great and reasonably priced. Holly Jolly was a wonderful Christmas beer and everyone else at my table enjoyed their beers as well. The food is also delicious and well priced considering the portion sizes.

We really enjoyed this "unexpected" stop at Fat Heads. We were there on a Friday night, so of course,it was very busy. We had no problem bellying up to the bar to get a beverage tho. People were very accommodating and moved aside so we could get in. Pleasant patrons! Now on to the amazing beers. They have some of... More

Nice beer. Wonderful spicey wings. Great service at the bar. And happy hour prices. I think the beers were three dollars each. What's not to like.

Fat Heads is in the heart of the South Side district of Pittsburgh. They have a great selection of draft beers as well as bottles. They brew their own beers, too. Their pub food has unique names and all are oversized and good. Unless you go mid-afternoon, Fat Heads is always busy and noisy so it's not a place for... More

Had lunch before a steeler game. Place was packed. We did wait about 45 minutes for a table, but there was plenty of wait area by bar and beer was cold. Our party of 8 was seated and the service was spot on. Waitress easily handled our orders and they were perfect. Even all the extra sauces and sides we... More

This is a fun, causal, local eatery in the Southside. They have an array of great sandwiches and side plus a decent bear list. They can accommodate larger parties too. They have hot wings so hot you have to sign a waiver!
