“Best beer garden in Northern Suburbs; Surprisingly good pub cuisine”
Reviewed October 20, 2009

Poor Richards Wexford Ale House and Grill features 40 beers on tap, including the area's best selection of Belgian beer, plus a very complementary menu of cuisine in an intimate, friendly pub setting. Poor Richards has been a family-owned pub serving residents of Wexford and the Northern Pittsburgh suburbs for 40 years. It has undergone an extensive interior renovation and now boasts 12-foot cathedral ceilings above the oak paneled bar, two comfortable dining rooms, and 10 large HD flat screen televisions that are perfect for catching the Steelers, the Penguins and all the big games. The diverse selection of domestic microbrews, imports from around the globe, and even a root beer on tap is among the best in the region. The chef's menu is filled with tempting complements, including buffalo chicken mac and cheese, a signature spicy reuben, and Pittsburgh's best beef on weck sandwiches. The chef also offers at least two types of lightly breaded chicken wings, and a very spicy hot Italian sausage that will stand up to the dark beers on tap. The owners, chef and servers are friendly and knowledgeable and the atmosphere is typical Pittsburgh-friendly and casual. Lunch and take-out diners can take advantage of Poor Richard's fully stocked deli counter with Boars Head meats and cheeses. Poor Richards Wexford Ale House and Grill is a gem in Pittsburgh's northern suburbs.
