Had lunch here with friends and everybody took food home. (GOOD food). If youír looking for a classy place this is not it, but it is fun. Nice selection of beer. If yor are unsure about a beer they gladly provide samples. Nice carryout selection upstairs. Carryout is NOT cheap.

nice place. The fact that they sell beer by the bottle upstairs is an added bonus. Service is really good, never had a bad experience there. If you like wings then this place has a very good selection of sauces. The beer seclection is great most of the time. Hard to find beers sometimes ends up on their taps. Somewhat pricey for somethings but most places do that! Never seem to leave there sober.... downside is it gets really busy and crowded.

Possibly the best draught selection in Pittsburgh. Beers always taste fresh and they keep their lines very clean. The upstairs now sells mix and match 6 packs to go, with quite a selection of hard to find beers. Food is very good - a large assortment of sandwiches, "headwiches", good wings, etc. It can get pretty busy though at times. The bar area could be a bit bigger. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the beers on tap - some are better than others of course.

First time there last night. We went just to get some bottles. They have a nice selection, as I certainly wasnít complaining. I found many beerís there that I havenít been able to find in Pittsburgh thus far. Also, the gentleman upstairs was extremely helpful and knowledgeble about the beer as well.

We didnít have any food or any of the on tap beers on tap, that will be for the next trip.

Great selection of beers on tap, and some of the best bar food in the íburgh. Itís not a bottle shop, nor does it try to be, so if thatís what youíre into, donít complain.. youíve been warned.

Great restaraunt/bar/bottle shop located just on the other side of the river from downtown in the South Side, an area that overflows with bars and restaraunts. They always have a huge selection and their food is second to none in the area. The bottle shop upstairs is a new addition but they have some pretty decent stuff, even though the selection isnt huge. Costs $14 to mix and match a 6er plus $10 for a second 6er. Also saw some hard to finds like Ruination, Vertical epic, ect. Definitely worth a stop and easy to get to.

In Pittsburghís Southside (which is truly its bar district). Fat Headís has a good selection of taps, an ok bottle selection, and ok food.

Nice tap selection, but little that is unique. Disappointingly, there are almost no bottles in stock, apart from a couple Chimayís and various Lindemmanís Lambics and the like. However, there are plans to open a six-pack shop next door, so perhaps thatíll motivate them to put in a few coolers for stuff besides Miller Lite and Iron. Food is really, really good...huge menu, immense portions. Good servers, (mostly) good bartenders, but the atmosphere is the pits. Loud and crowded (with tables and people), this place is almost like a like a nightmare family restaurant in which the bar isnít segregated. Go if you have a weekday afternoon off, otherwise avoid the place like the plague. If itís nighttime, try Smokiní Joeís or Rolandís instead - youíll have a much better time.

Located on the insanely busy Carson St. in Pittsburgh, good luck finding a parking spot here on a weekend night. There are only a couple pay lots and street parking is soaked up by the residents. If you are lucky enough to snag a spot though, head to Fat Headís.

Inside the dining area is on the right and in the rear, while the bar is on the immediate left. Taps line the wall, and on the opposite side are large boards that list the beer club members who have completed the circuit. There is a lot of wood and the walls are a strange seafoam color. There are a few TVs to watch too.

The beer selection is impressive to say the least. Nearly 50 beers on tap (one on cask) and probably twice that in bottles. On draught they have Troegís, Stone, Heavyweight, Victory, Rogue (including the Rogue Fat Headís ESB) etc. In bottles they have an extensive selection of micros and imports.

The service is good despite the crazy crowds this place seems to draw.

The food here is really good. The Wanzco Chicken sandwich is particularly tasty, and they have good homemade chips.

Overall this place is a must stop if you are in Pittsburgh but you are going to work for it unless you go on a weekday afternoon.
