I had a night of solo traveling in town after a conference. I headed up the Monongahela incline looking for a good view restaurant for a quick bite and a drink. It turns out the only restaurants up there with views are by the Ducesne incline and are $30 entree joints, one was even closing at 8:30 when i walked in.
Thank goodness for the Shiloh Grill! Though it doesn't boast a view, it does serve a great beer and make a terrific pulled pork sandwich. I ended up sitting next to the owner of the place who was also very friendly, welcoming and generous. He really appeared to love his place.
Thanks from Portland!
