From the little bit I have seen, I really like Squirrel Hill. Lots of different types of restaurants and people seem friendly. I didn't stay too long. Just uber in from downtown and ate at one of the restaurants. It has a great vibe and I will definitely come back to visit some more next time I am in Pittsburgh.

Lived here for a year and got to know it well. Smallish neighborhood and good for walking around. Good access to local parks. AND within 5 minutes of many great pizza shops. Also a very good Kosher butcher shop. Has great small-town charm. Restaurants are extremely kid-friendly.

Sukhotha Thai Bistro, a new Thai restaurant with great food, great service, and great food selections. It's small, quaint, and just a great Squirrel Hill experience.

Squirrel Hill is a great college town. It is ethnically diverse and welcoming. A variety of shops and restaurants make up the main street and there is amply parking. Because of its large population of members of the Jewish faith even the Dunkin' Donuts is Kosher.

We sort of stumbled on it visiting Pittsburg - ate at a great little Thai restaurant - and had coffee at the local café - that place was jamming - not a table to be had. Very nice time.

I've been coming to Squirrel Hill for years so many places to many to mention them all. Mineo's is one of my favorite Pizza Shops on Murray Ave it's been there since I was a kid. The shops up on Forbes Ave as well. One of the places I go from time to time is The Squirrel Hill Sports Bar... More

Not much has changed here but it's one of the cooler neighborhoods in the Burg'e along with shady side.

There are so many restaurants and shops in this part of Pittsburgh! This section has managed to keep its own identity!

I've been a visitor and resident to Squirrel Hill for over 30 years and it never disappoints. Some things never change, like The Squirrel Hill Café (the Squirrel Cage) and Mineo's/Aiello's/Napoli's (each has their following...take your pick), while others, sadly, have disappeared (Rhoda's and the Bagel Nosh). Some have even relocated within the neighborhood like Silky's Saloon. What I love... More
