Wonderful food, great people and service. This was my second time visiting the area and was recommended by a few people that I should try Fat Head's food along with one of their IPA's. Would definitely go back there again.

Large selection of beer and ciders and an abundance of meats/vegetarian options in between large breads. Yes, nearly as big as your head. Burgers come with fries but all sandwiches come with chippers. Good idea to take home some bottled sauces like Killer Ranch.

Great little gastropub! Great decor, friendly staff, and a large selection of drinks. The burgers really are the size of your head! If you don't want a burger, I highly recommend the Pittsburgh salad!

Best to call and ask. Some have special things going on and may charge to get in or maybe they will shorten hours.
