“Great local choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

This is one of my family's favorite local places to eat. There aren't many non-chain options in Washpa, but if you are looking for reasonably priced American/Italian food that isn't a chain, this is a good option. The fried zucchini is great. The sauce is good. They used to have a small and a large option, but now it's just the small. But don't be deceived by that, the small is huge! It's a great appetizer to feed at least four people. My husband loves the stuffed steak. It's steak stuffed with cheese and shrimp and he swears by it. I like to try the specials. They are usually very good. But I like a lot of things on the menu - pizza, sandwiches, pastas, steaks and chicken. They have excellent steak and grilled chicken salads - served Pittsburgh-style with fries. Great place for kids, too. They don't have a kids menu, but there are options that are great for kids, like pizza and sandwiches. We usually get the side of spaghetti for my daughter, and she always takes some home - the side portion is that big. Prices: you can eat expensive if you are eating the meats, but if you stick to pastas, sandwiches, salads or pizza, it is very affordable. They also have a back room, which is good for events like showers, birthdays and rehersal dinners. It isn't big, but good for small to medium groups.

“UGH!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

Reasonably priced. But the hot food is served cold to lukewarm and the cold foods are served lukewarm. Bland tastless food is served here. This place has been around for a long time and is a place I would not frequent to get a good meal.

“Good food, good prices”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014 via mobile

No matter what you get here, you will certainly enjoy it. It is some of the best good you will get in town by far. However, if you want pizza, do upper crust down the street, there is no comparison to that place.
The environment is kinda cool with brickwork and old images of the town throughout history.
Swing by!

“great food and great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

The Union Grille is outstanding from the service to the food and the cost is very reasonable. Book a table ahead of time, because they are always full.
