Four of us visited for a dinner on a weekday evening. Our server, Sarah, was just wonderful. The food was excellent. We sat at a table on a second floor porch and it was very comfortable at sunset in September.

If you are referring to Springhill Suites in Pittsburgh, then yes. Trader Joes is within walking distance. It is in a small shopping center 1-2 blocks up the street. A Target is also up the street, but a bit further walk.
