A bar and grill that has been in Squirrel Hill forever. The menu is quite varied with a nice collection of salads and sandwlches. The fish sandwich is enough for 3 people. Everything was fresh and tasty. Dinner for 4 was $38.

Service started off a little standoffish when we all ordered water (which drives me NUTS....we order water because that's our drink of choice.....NOT because we're cheap and don't want to tip you). We got the roasted red pepper hummus....I'm not a fan of hummus but it was very good! I got the Reuben with fries. Both were pretty good. My... More

It's hard to give a bad review for the Murray Avenue Grill because in general I like the restaurant, the food is good and a great beer list. Last night, however, there was a problem and the manager did not respond well. They were out of sweet potato fries, which I understand. We go to this restaurant because their sweet... More

It's consistently good. The best are the burgers. Good fries and sweet potato fries. Active bar scene. Waiters are good. Good salads . Grilled chicken and grilled steak. Fish daily. For a small neighborhood place across from the Manor theater. Street parking is free after 6pm.

After the Bach,Beethoven and Brunch Concert at Mellon Park, spouse and I as well as another couple were looking for a place for Brunch. We had picked up a small magazine entitled Squirrel Hill ,a publication of the Squirrel Hill Urban Coalition. We had two places in mind and after we parked I noticed a police officer on the corner.... More

I really give the food a 3 1/2, but extra half point for the great service. Menu a little big for how small this place is. I started off with the fried zucchini. These were crispy and hot. They were served with a creamy pinkish, red dipping sauce. The sauce was a horse radish sauce that tasted like catsup was... More

We were on our way to the water park after visiting the zoo and stumbled across this place. We were just driving though and it caught my eye. Very good, unique menu items. I had the salmon burger that got better with every bite. My husband had steak wrap and my son had the wings. We all loved our food... More

I traveled from California to my old hometown and planned to have dinner at Mineo's on July 4th, but Mineo's was closed. In desperation, we chose Murray Ave Grill, but from now on, it will be a destination. The food was fresh and delicious. I had the salad with the french fries on top. But the BIGGEST TREAT was the...

Good food at good prices. A standard bar menu but everything was fine. The portions are large so you can easily share a meal.
