I love this place...

...and apparently so does the rest of Pittsburgh, so go early to beat the rush! They have a very good beer selection, and their Moules Frites (mussels and fries) are excellent and probably the stars of the menu. I've also enjoyed every entree I've tried, with my favorite being the Carbonnade... read more

They have a very good beer selection, and their Moules Frites (mussels and fries) are excellent and probably the stars of the menu. I've also enjoyed every entree I've tried, with my favorite being the Carbonnade Flamande. Great little place!

Tucked away in a neighborhood, off the beaten path, this is the place. When it's nice out, they open the windows to the outside seating so a breeze comes through. When it's hot, they keep the AC on. Food is great; mussels and steak frites of course but everything our party ordered was very good. Shout out to the hostess... More

First and best meal during a recent trip to Pittsburgh was at Point Brugge. Food: We shared the mussels as an appetizer with another couple, none were left. The lamb ragout was outstanding, cannot recommend highly enough. My husband loved his pork chop, and later agreed it was the best he sampled in the city. Atmosphere: Calm, relaxed, facilitated conversation.... More

We arrived on the early side to avoid a line and were seated immediately - waitress was lovely. Started with the Mediterranean Plate, which was great, then enjoyed salmon, warm goat cheese salad with chicken and of course mussels with fries. Everything was fresh and beautifully prepared. Enjoy!

Back in our old haunts after moving 30 yrs ago. Friends recommended Point Brugge for our anniversary dinner. Not disappointed!! Started with bottle of Michel-Schlumberger Pinot Noir - excellent. Had the cheese board with pickled veggies as appetizers- good but maybe a bit much with wonderful hard crusted bread. I ordered the duck special and it was perfect with terrific... More

I have heard much about this cafe, but live on the south end of town so took me a minute to make my way over. The menu read very nicely with many types of fare. I ordered the bbq pork sammy which was good amount and quality of meat, but was dry and needed way more slaw and sauce then... More

My wife and I eat and drink at PB nearly every other week. It is a gem in the quiet Point Breeze neighborhood. They are known for their mussels and as far as I am concerned, the only place in Pgh to get them. Great staff. Always a good beer list and consistently good food. Just be prepared to wait... More

The food was wonderful, and so was the service. Lucky, we didn't have to wait long for a table. It was a slow day.

I had friends telling me about this place for months! And yet I put it off for some reason. Maybe because it's far from my home. Or just maybe I couldn't believe mussels could rise to the level of praise I was hearing. When two of my friends insisted on taking me there when my husband was out of the... More
