The first time we went to Pittsburgh Blue, we sat in the main dining area. The cost of the meal was astronomical ! Everything is a la carte. We wanted a steak, which was hugely expensive. Any "side" has to be ordered for "the table", no individual sides. I wanted mashed potatoes and my husband wanted a veggie, so we ended up with 2 small platters of each. So, we ended up leaving food behind. The steak was great but we decided this was not the place for us. A friend of ours, apparently loves this place and has given us a couple gift cards for there. We heard about the "happy hour" menu and that food could be obtained in moderate, reasonable portions and at a sane price. So, when we are given these gift cards, we attempt to use them during happy hour. We have been happy with the selections on that menu and the food has been very good, as was the service. The main problem is, that during "happy hour" it is usually packed and difficult to be able to obtain a table. We have a gift card that is almost a year old and have been unable to use it, simply because we cannot get a table.
