Well we went to Fat Head's with too high of expectations. And we now know why everyone posts something great about the beer. They offer a huge variety of great beers. . My husband and I both got burgers. The burger to bun ratio needs help to move to a excellent rating. The burgers were good but not exceptional. If... More

Great sandwiches, very Good wings, salads and sides. They did make an ill advised menu change recently which has upset many people. But I got lucky as most of my personal favorites remain. Amazing beer selection too if you're into that.

The portions were big and the food was good. There were 4 of us and the service was good and the weather was nice enough for us to enjoy the outdoor seating.

My wife and I visit Pittsburgh regularly and Fat Head's is one of the few places we go, each and every time. The food is tremendous and they give you plenty. We have never ordered the same thing twice and are still extremely satisfied. The beer selection is amazing. And the wait staff are friendly, talkative ad full of advice... More

The place was busy when I was there, that is a good thing. Good assortment of beers available. Waited forever to get in and was seated on a runway with people banging the back of my chair. They are missing the boat with their refrigerated beer area as the attendant knew absolutely nothing about the product. People sitting all over... More

Tried this restaurant as it was on a eatery list for a wedding we went to as a must try. The beers selection is awesome and is worth going just for that. The food I thought was nothing special. Good portions. Order different things in your group so you can try everything. Will go back for the beer

A place which stands out even on trendy Carson street. A place loved by bikers and nerds altogether. A place where you can get the local beer, some interesting new beer and some good old beer you know (and the same is true about the people too). You just sit there, sip your beer (one of about 60 on the... More

Food is so different, we loved everything we ordered. The sandwiches and salads are so big get a few and share cause you will want to try everything on the menu. The beer selection is big with a lot of craft beers to choose from. The place is always busy so go early, the wait is worth it.
