Fun for large groups

We came here with a group of 10 on a Saturday for lunch. We were quickly seated at a long table. Service was good, food was good, and they had a nice beer selection. The ambiance is unique with stained glass windows and tall ceilings.

Great time in this old church. Was a little exciting walking in and seeing the beautiful inside of this brewery. Food was great and the selection of beer was excellent. Staff was courteous. Have to return here whenever I get back to Pittsburgh.

I've eaten here twice on the recommendation of friends or locals- it's a unique atmosphere for a meal. The church is gorgeous, the beer is good, and I've liked everything I've eaten. This place feels special, mostly because of the atmosphere, but the service and food are, in my opinion, up to the standard set by the surroundings. I'd definitely... More

I noticed the recommendations and couldn't wait to visit. I love the beauty of old churches and this one doesn't disappoint. After dining somewhere else, we decided to drive here for a drink and to share a dessert. Parking was a bit tricky, but we found a spot out front. When we walked in, we chose to sit at the... More

The place is unique and has nice character to it and it is actually a church serving beer and food. The place is a historic landmark in Pittsburgh. The beer selection is good and the celestial gold was a good light beer. Coming to the food, it is extremely disappointing, I would not try anything other than the pizza when... More

I have been a fan of church brew works beer for several years! The food choices are varied and several are unique...the buffalo chicken pierogies were delicious and the pizza OUTSTANDING, but the mushroom steak sandwich was disappointing. It is interesting to see what has been done in turning a church into a restaurant but it can seem chaotic when... More

We came in from out of town, and didn't know what to expect upon pulling up. What we found when we entered was that the wait on a Saturday was an hour and half. We had tried to make a reservation but they don't accept them for parties of less than 8. Half of the restaurant is set up for... More
