Very pleasant place to while away a sunny afternoon

Although there is a large inside part to this restaurant, I've only ever sat outside because it's just nice. You're right on the Allegheny River and have a great view of The Strip District section of the city. If you tilt out just a bit, you've got a good view of Pittsburgh. I had a Caesar... read more

Up until this year I would have told you not to eat here but for whatever reason the good is very good this year. From the Caesar salad to the Thai wings and pizza, everything seems to be cooked to your liking. Btw if you're in a real mood you can order a double cheeseburger with Swiss....you won't regret it!...

Great views of the river and an extremely friendly and fun staff. Food was pretty good - I had the beer battered fish sandwich and fries. Surprisingly small compared to some of the giant fish sandwiches you're used to seeing, and the fries were OK - good seasoning, otherwise average at best. Nice bottled beer and wine selection.

A nice stop on Washington Landing off the North Shore Bike trail. The outdoor seating area on the water provides a nice stop at the end of a bike ride. Would be nice for lunch or dinner if you are not a biker. No pay parking and easy access. The grilled salmon is excellent. No draft beer but a decent... More

This restaurant is located right on the Allegheny river with a deck for out door dining. It's a great place to catch a meal like lunch on a nice summer afternoon. We've eaten there 3 times and each time has been enjoyable. The food is delicious and it's fun to watch the river traffic. Dress is casual.

We went here for my birthday dinner because I love to dine outdoors. We all enjoyed our meals, but it is not fine cuisine. There were plenty of fish and shrimp options, so we were all happy with the menu. The warm, summer evening, watching boats on the river, followed by an after dinner walk on the Heritage Trail, makes... More

I wanted to like this place. Despite bad reviews, I can be convinced to try something if it seems to have potential. Perfect location and concept in the city I love. Couldn't be THAT bad, right? Ugh! I'm writing this review and I haven't even left yet. I have some time to kill waiting the 3-5 minutes turned into 10... More

We were looking for a place to have a late Sunday lunch with Pinot, our greyhound and found Red Fin Blues online. What a beautiful surprise. EVERYONE treated our dog as part of our party. Not only the attention to her was greatly appreciated but the food and service made us want to come back again. The fact that a... More

Let's face it, your coming here to dine on the water, for snack before jumping on a boat, or... to get drunk at the bar. In Pittsburgh, eating on the water is limited to a hand full of restaurants. The food was OK, but they recently hired the chef from Ruth's Chris & changed the menu for the first time... More

If you grew up here you know the city revolves around the river and if you didn't you now know. If you want to visit a place where you can casually hang on the deck and enjoy the river and some boats in the marina this is the place. The food is better than ever and please try the steamed... More
