“Fabulous neighborhood gem!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

Went here with another couple...what a great little place. They have 80-100 beers on tap and 3 times as many bottles. There was a "beer geek" going to tables giving samples of 5 different beers. All were good. I had Wells banana bread beer, which was fabulous and my husband had Avalanche Amber Ale which he really liked. We had several other beers, all very good. The hot wings were amazing...one of my favorites! My husband and the other gentleman with us both LOVED the fish sandwich. Our waitress was realty good. She was very helpful in making beer recommendations. Can't wait to go back!

“Only on TA is this place still a secret, great wings and beer selection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Just went to Hough's for the first time on wing night(Weds). This place is pretty awesome. Has a neighborhood bar feel, with great wings and an amazing beer selection with what seems like 100 taps. Service isn't amazing but is good enough. I really recommend the hot wings and the cajun dust if you like dry rub. For beers I tried the Penn Nut Roll and something else that was described as an "Oatmeal Red". Both were excellent, and what I love is that you can order small 8 ounce draft beers or regular pints, if there is something you want to try but don't want a full pint of. They also have an extensive list of bottles as well. Anyways, this place was packed and apparently is all the time, so it'll be only a matter of time before the reviews start rollin in! Oh, this also would be a great place to catch a game, they had about a dozen big tv's with all kinds of different stuff on, from NBA to college football to crazy ESPN high school football competitions. Highly recommended, I will be back!

“Ehhh...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

Seems nice on the inside...but food isn't the best quality. Service could be much better. A little noisy - so it's hard to have a conversation.

“Tough to beat Hough's”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

I live pretty close to Hough's and don't go there as much as I should, but it is an excellent bar if you like a wide variety of beer or taking in sports on some nice screens. The interior of the bar is very nicely done and seems extremely clean for a bar. There are a bunch of flat screens on the walls and a huge projection screen in the lower portion which is particularly nice during hockey season (haven't been there for a Steelers game yet). They have a great variety of beer on draft and bottles and while their food won't knock your socks off they do have some nice eats including their wings (Wednesday wing night). They are also adding on a Brew It Yourself section where you rent a spot to make your own beer based on their collection of recipes. It's not open yet to my knowledge but should be done nice like the rest of the place.

“Beer Drinker Heaven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2011

I was killing time around Pittsburgh on a Saturday night and thought I would stop in to this neighborhood bar in the Greenfield section of Pittsburgh. I was completely surprised at how awesome it was. If you like different kinds of beer, this is the place to go. They had a wall of beer taps at the 2nd bar plus over 300 bottled beers I was told.

This place is really nice and has a really cool bar top at the main bar. The food was excellent and the bartenders were all very friendly.

I was also told that they will have a make your own beer option soon.
