The servers were lively and fun, and the menu was limited but interesting, and the food was good. We had reservations for dinner before a concert. They were respectful of our time frame, and we had no problem being seated and served. The restaurant is...More

After a bike ride, we stopped at the Bost building for some history of the Steel Mills. Then we decided to try the Dorothy 6, which was named after the Dorothy 6 Blast Furnace. Expecting typical bar food, we were pleasantly surprised. It was not...More

Last Friday evening my wife and I, along with another couple, returned to Dorothy 6 Blast Furnace Café for a second time. The restaurant's space is inviting. There is a large, nicely appointed bar and several tables. We had a reservation and were seated immediately....More

Set in a historic area, "D6" is an absolute delight. An impressive range of craft brew is available, but you can stay domestic if you like - my wife loved the sweet/tart craft cherry cider! Don't expect simple pub food, though, because D6 serves up...More

I wasn't sure what to expect before visiting Dorothy 6, but I'm sure glad I went. There are all kinds of steel mill photos, drawings and memorabilia decorating the walls. The bar has the names of some of the mills permanently on the countertop. The...More

We decided to try this on a whim at the end of a long drive into Pittsburgh. Located in the town of Homestead proper, Dorothy 6 was a real find. It's named after a blast furnace that graced the area for some 22 years. Clearly...More

Dorothy 6 proudly serves fresh, upscale, and hand-crafted pub fare. Along with twenty taps of craft beer, we offer a broad array of beers by the bottle, classic cocktails infused with a D6 spin, fine wine, and some of the most inspired pub and comfort food you will find in the Steel city area. We also offer event space - Dorothy 6's Karma Lounge is a spacious 4,000 sq ft loft with a private bar. It can accommodate up to 80 guests for a seated event or 120 guests for a cocktail reception. Pittsburgh is a true all-American city that is a melting pot of rich cultures. Our philosophy is to prepare our take on All-American and Pittsburgh food classics using the best products while providing unpretentious and friendly service...with great beer to wash it all down.
