Awesome bar.

Fathead's Saloon is a really cool place to have some food and drink. The Three Little Pigs appetizer was delicious. It comes with Bratz, Bangers, and Kielbasa chargrilled and served with sauerkraut and sautéed pierogies and onions. I would highly recommend this appetizer if you're looking for a... read more

Was out visiting my daughter at Pitt and she suggested we try this restaurant for lunch. They have a large selection of sandwiches, burgers, salads, and appetizers. We arrived at the restaurant around noon and was seated right away. I used the restroom while I was there and it was absolutely gross. We shared crock of Mooney's chicken parm soup... More

This place has such a wide menu and the sandwiches are huge. Make sure you go when you are hungry. Our party of 5 loved this place. They have a small outside seating area as well with plenty of on street parking. The service was excellent. I would highly recommend here.

Visited here on a Saturday afternoon about 2:00 ..a 1 hour wait...very crowded wait area. Lots of choices from unique burgers..sandwiches salads and standard pub apps. Nice list of brew.....Mediocre flavors..bun bigger than the burger...Nothing special...not worth the wait.

This place is the best for beers and great bar food. You can't go wrong. If your a Coors or Budweiser person don't embarrass yourself if you order these immature beers at Fat Heads. Great wings and sandwich's you cannot find anywhere else. Go for it if in the Burgh

If you're on the South Side of Pittsburgh and even so much as thinking about going to someplace like Primanti's, STOP. Cross the street and head into Fat Head's. Also, if you're going there for lunch, skip breakfast. If you're going there for dinner, skip lunch. I used to live on the South Side, and this is one of the... More

I had heard many good things about this place. I have had their brews at other places and like them very much. First time I had eaten here. Large menu featuring a lot of items. Usually, I don't like a large menu, but in this case it's fine. Everything looked and sounded good. I wanted 2 or 3 dozen of... More

I discovered Fatheads when I was dating my husband. He and his friends always went for wing night on Monday nights. That became our Monday night date spot. The wings are large and the sauces are delicious. I love the Garlic Parmesan and the Honey BBQ. My husband loves ALL the hot wings but his favorite is the Carribean Killers!... More

A bar / restaurant with decent pub food and a great selection of beer. They have highly rated IPA's and a great selection of seasonal beers they brew. I'm kind of a beer snob and they have never let me down.

Food awesome, craft beer out of this world, pricing was great, and parking right across the street was only $1 or so!!!! Fat Heads Beer is amazing in addition to the vast selection of other craft beers!
