Must visit this unique establishment

I was impressed with numerous qualities about this place. First, the decor and originality of the interior is without a doubt something to behold. They can hold probably 250 to 300 people, and you don't have to shout (due to 100+ foot high ceilings from being an old church). This in itself is worth... read more

The food is really good, there is a great selection of locally brewed beer, and the surroundings are unique. Brewing is done on the altar! My favorite is the Pittsburgh Salad with Buffalo Chicken.

This is such a great restaurant. Whether you are there for a romantic dinner, a family gathering, or just for a quick beer - you'll love it. I actually prefer the pub menu, featuring the pizzas and sandwiches. My recommendations are anything with beef (buffalo burger and cheesesteak are awesome), but I had the southwest wrap on my last visit... More

I like this place for bringing people from outside of the city to experience. It's a photo-op and it's got a long history in Pittsburgh. Beautiful big organ, original pews and big beer brewing barrels on the altar! The beer is solid, and everyone has a favorite. Get pierogies, pizza and/or wings, and you can't go wrong. I wouldn't recommend... More

My husband and I ate here with friends who recently moved to Pittsburgh. The setting is ornate without feeling formal. You have to relax and enjoy the great food. Staff was suburb.

Cannot say enough about this wonderful surprise in Pittsburgh! The Church turned Brew Pub has such a great look, fabulous beer, excellent pizza, a pretty good menu and wonderful waitstaff. A group of eight of us had a table up on the altar on a Saturday evening so had a picture perfect view of the entire Church and enjoyed some... More

The Church Brew Works is a must for all ages for lunch or dinner or just for a beer. Take a seat at the bar and enjoy the surroundings. I love the ceiling and brew tanks nicely on display. The food is first rate and the options for beer are for everyone. You can even take home a growler or... More

Was their for lunch, and the place was empty then. Good burger. That place was a bit more dank than I expected. More of a college hang out place (pub) than a family place. It probably looks better at night.

Was seated for a couple burgers. Waitress was sub par (Tammy). Waked to get two burgers over 45 minutes. Was seated and had place our order at least 5 minutes before a large party of 8 teenagers were seated. The 8 teenagers placed their order and received their meals before ours. Spoke to manager and she stated she was aware... More
