Carson Street is the ideal place for eating and drinking. So many places to see and eat it will make your head spin. I love this part of the city. Mike and Tony's Gyros are the best in the city. If your looking for night life the south side is the place to be. I've never seen so many drinking... More

The Southside offers many eateries and bars to choose from. Shops along the way as well. Walking distance to Southside Works for a more gentile experience.

Been to the South Side many times. Interesting shops. Good food. A movie if you're in the mood. Great views of the river.

Plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy and also a pool hall and uber cabs make it affordable to get in and out of the South side

I have lived in Pittsburgh for 50 years but have yet to wrap my arms all the way around the Southside (S'side in PIttsburghese). My focus is restaurants (Mallorca one of the best Spanish restaurants in the world), theater (City Theater does new and experimental works that are always interesting and thought provoking), scenery (just go to the viewing platform...

I like this area. It's nice just to walk around and visit the myriad of shops and just spend the afternoon if you have nothing better to do. We had taken a tour bus for this area about a year ago and lots of history pointed out to us. So this was actually our second or third visit to this... More

My review is essentially an affirmation of many you will read about this area. It is extremely interesting and can be fun but as you age (over 30?) it probably isn't a place you'd want to frequent on Friday/Saturday nights (Southside Works excluded). I've seen a couple of people compare this to Bourbon Street, which is a very solid comparison... More

If you are looking for a great day or evening place to visit then the Southside will give you all that you need. Was there in July 2016 and simply walked the streets. Stopped at many places to have a beer and grab some food. Weekends bands are playing and the place is rocking with music. Great place to simply... More

Loved spending time in this neighbourhood. We watching the Penguins in the playoffs at a couple of different bars here. Good for young and old.
