Great place. 40 or so on tap & mostly good choices. Victory, Stouts. DFH, Maredsous. Lots of Belgians in bottles. Huge menu with all sorts of choices of pub fare. Nice beer passport for regulars. Love the carry out bottle shop upstairs. Why canít we do that in NY?

Spent a Friday night there. Decent tap list. Got to try out some exotics. I canít knock the service. They did well despite being extremely busy. Carribean Fire wings were excellent. Burger and fries were average. Price are above average. Nice carry-out bottle shop. The only problem was the crowd and the lack of space. Other than that, this place is the real deal.

Had a late lunch here today. All TVs tuned to Boston College vs. Pacific. Nice tap list, though there werenít many I hadnít tried already. Settled on a Great Divide Titan IPA to go with my chicken fingers and fries. Decent menu and the portion sizes are for the serious eater. Service was excellent and I enjoyed my hour there. I know they get darned crowded on weekends, so if you really want to enjoy a quiet pint or two, itís best to go during the off hours. Even on a Thursday afternoon, it was pretty busy, though a lot of that was probably because of March Madness.

Fat Heads is a good place to grab a sandwich and a draft in the South Side, but if youíre looking for an extensive bottle selection or hard-to-find beers, youíd be better served eleswhere. Smokiní Joes on 20th and Carson has a MUCH better bottle selection, and comparable draft offerings for less cost. On the upside, the extensive menu of sandwiches and bar food will keep your head spinning while you sample one of their 50+ drafts, mainly microbrews, plus a few Belgians. Bottle selection is reserved mostly to a few Belgian 750ís, some US 22ís, and a few select 12 oz offerings. As with most South Side bars, Friday and Saturday nights are packed, youíll have a better experience visiting during the afternoon. New bottle shop located upstairs, as with any such establishment in socialist PA, prices are outrageous.

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.
