“Nice suprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We stopped in here on a recent trip to the Burgh. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but ambiance inside was great. It is a brew house complete with the vats in the back that we could see from our table. They had about 18 different in house beers to choose from, and they offered two different sampler flights. The beer was very good, not excellent, but very good. I am spoiled though, because I live 5 minutes from Troegs. My wife, daughter and I all had burgers and they were excellent. Due to bad weather on the turnpike we did not get here till about 7pm, so the bar crowd was already kicking up and things were getting kind of loud. I would imagine that would not be as big of an issue earlier in the evening, or on a week night. All that said, we all agreed we would stop here again the next time we are in town.

“Great food in a friendly atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

The Rivertowne pour house is a neighborhood gem. If you like Microbrews you will enjoy the ever changing menu of beer options.

The food options are reasonably priced and very consistent. The bacon cheddar fries on the appetizer menu are amazing. I have sampled, from their menu the following, all with wonderful results:
4 cheese steak wrap
cheeseburger
Piranna pizza
fish sandwich
Reuben (one of the best in town!)
Mandarin Blue Salad
Baked Italian Submarine

We have never had a bad meal at the Pourhouse.

The Pourhouse is also offering Sunday brunch again. There was a wide selection, along with made to order waffles and Omletes. The only down side was that the bar couldnt make a bloody mary.

The value for your money is very good here. If you happen to be in Monroeville, it is worth it to stop in!

“Surprise in ugly wrapping.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

We were heading east after a weekend in Pittsburgh and looked for a place on our GPS to eat. We found the Rivertowne Pour House. From the outside looks scary but inside its friendly and comfortable. Their craft beers are really good and specialty pizzas unique and tasty. Even ordered a pizza to go for when we get home.

“Very tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012 via mobile

We ate at this place while stopping for one night on our way to Washington DC. We waited around 35 minutes to be seated and were relieved to be in a back room which was relatively quiet. Service was friendly and efficient. Lots of appealing choices on the menu. Husband ordered seafood Mac and cheese and I got a basic chicken sandwich. Husband said that his was excellent. Mine was very good too. We each had a side salad which had onion straws on it (yum!). My fries were fresh cut. We would definitely return.

“Great Beer - Poor Service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Rivertowne in Monroeville is a great place for the Micro Beer . Unfortunately for years the service has never improved and is below average on its best day. Don't go over to the Bar area if you want service. Sometimes you will find that the bartenders would rather wash the beer glasses than wait on you.
