From the time you enter the doors your eyes are looking around. The Micro Brewery is right in front of you on what use to be the altar. You are warmly greeted as seated quickly. The food is excellent. I have eaten here a number of times thru the years and never had a bad meal. They do their own... More

Ate here with friends before going to a show. Loved the atmosphere and the architecture! I would not recommend for the food.

What a cool, unique venue! Sit in a pew and look at the stained glass windows. It's very cool how they kept a lot of the church the way it was. The beer is brewed at what was the altar. I felt a little strange like maybe this whole thing wasn't okay in a church. The restaurant was super busy.... More

As a Pittsburgh native, I am a bit ashamed that I've never checked out this restaurant before. I loved it. I had the ribs, and I thought the sides were well-thought-out compliments to the savory, melt-in-your-mouth goodness of the meat. Our waitress was knowledgeable and great. We were seated quickly (easy with 2 people), and we enjoyed pouring over the... More

2 adults and a 12 year old went for lunch. Quite a few "tourist" at lunch.. families welcome. Some seating is in pews that were made into booths. Our server Bill knew quite a bit about their beers and food. Beer samples were free. One had shrimp and grits, the other a Philly Cheesesteak and I had the Chickpea salad.... More

Once inside the old church doors, you'll find 'holy water' of a different kind! For the Catholics out there, you might find it a bit odd at first but once you look beyond that, it's a fun experience with quality craft beers and unique, quality food. We had a large group (11) so we sampled varied menu items but everything... More

Second visit here for business and the converted church offers interesting decor to look at while dining and the space is large enough to walk around without disturbing other diners. Salads were tasty and fresh; the bread pudding with ice cream was DELICIOUS; word of caution, serving size enough for at least 4 people, worth the calories!

This was my second visit to Church Brew Works, and the atmosphere can't be beat. The stained glass windows and high cathedral ceilings make the whole place feel open and ethereal. Plus there's something fun about drinking in a church! The beer as always is good too.

We love the Church Brew Works! The food is delicious and so is the beer! By all means, try the onion soup - it's the best.
