Restaurants and Unique shops
Sep 2021
If you are looking for any Pittsburgh gear this is the place to go, all kinds of shops. Nice place to just go and walk around. There are a lot of different restaurants to try. If your looking for a culture specific food they have several grocery stores.

Street vendors and shops
Sep 2021 • Family
Fun to shop the street vendor stands for Steeler gear. You can find literally anything with Steelers/Penguins/Pirates on it. Primantis and Wholeys are here too. Fun afternoon of shopping and people watching.

The Strip District is a must when in the Pittsburgh area! This area is full of shops and restaurants! A great place to get Steelers merchandise. Grandpa Joes is a must too!

Unique shops and a selection of restaurants in edgy Strip District.
Aug 2021 • Couples
My wife had never been here before despite a number of business trips to Pittsburgh. There are a number of restaurants and shops especially unique food/imports in the Strip. We probably spent 2 1/2 hours here including lunch. Parking rates vary so do your homework. We were actually heading to a garage parking facility and passed a lot on 14th and Smallman that charged a flat rate of $10. Ignore it as there are better options further down the road such as a small parking lot on Smallman that charged only $5 total. In sure the rates change depending on what’s going on in town. The best concentration of shops are from 16th to 25th streets and mostly on Penn. Thete are some that find the area a bit edgy but that’s part of the attraction.

Go Early

After reading the reviews on this, I really wanted to visit. We went on a Monday after work arriving just after 5 pm. Parking is paid until 6 pm on the street so make sure you are prepared for that. There is street parking and parking lots. Since we arrived late, we only had to pay $1.00 for street parking. The street parking kiosk did take credit cards; I'm not sure if the parking lots did or not. Since we got there after 5 pm, there were hardly any people walking around and all of the stores were closed. Most of the restaurants were closed as well. After looking at the hours on the stores and restaurants, most of them close between 3 and 5 pm. We were bummed that we did not arrive earlier. There are many specialty stores, including Asian markets, Italian markets, cheese stores, local shops, and candy stores among others, lining both sides of the street (many of the streets are one way). There were many different types of restaurants. We really wanted to try one of the Thai restaurants but it had closed so we went to a pizza place (which was amazing, by the way). There were so many places that we wanted to explore so we definitely will return when things are open.

Walked around on a busy Sunday. Packed full of people but great atmosphere all around. Street vendors sold interesting goods, lots of great food shopping groceries and restaurants to choose from.

Best snacking street in Pittsburgh
May 2021 • Family
Our first visit to the city we took the food tour which introduced us to the gems of the strip district. You can eat your way through the ethnic grocery stores and we have done that every visit to Pittsburgh. I recommend the Perrogie from the Polish deli, Biscotti, gyro from Laban, and the Atomic roll- which needs to be shared. Even if you’re not grocery shopping, this foodie haven is a must see during a visit.
