Pretty good selection, especially for Belgians. Really enjoyed the food the times Iíve visited. Service was average, but it could have just been an exceptionally busy night, Iím not sure. Either way, I liked the place.

Plain and simple the king of the belgium beers in Pittsburgh. Good food also. I like the Buffalo burgers and the sweet potato fries. I have been here many times. Just a bit pricey. They do also have a good selection of American microbrews on tap.

Ambiance is very nice and mellow, a bit dark inside, but inviting. Service is pretty fast and also the bar tenders and waitresses have a good amount of knowledge on beer. Selection is on par with other good beer bars in Pittsburgh in general, but if you like Belgians, the selections is awesome. Food is good, quality, better than bar food but not really upscale. Value points are decreased because the food is a bit pricey as well as the taps, unless you go at happy hour in which they have half off belgians. Overall a decent place to go, especially for belgians, but be prepared to spend.

Good selection, not extraordinary. Prices are too high. Service is average. The food is pretty good, mostly burgers.

I have gone to the original Sharp Edge many times, and figured it was time to throw a rating out there. The place is slightly hard to find, if it is your first time going there, or if you are unfamiliar with Pittsburgh. Once inside, youíll find the atomosphere to be complimentary to enjoying food and drink. It is slightly dark inside, but warm, cozy, and slightly European in its feel. The tap selection rotates, and tends to feature European classics, hard-to-find beers in draft form, and good craft stuff. Their bottle selection numbers in the hundreds, and is more extensive than anything Iíve seen in this area. However, there are two major drawbacks to this: 1. The bottle selection tends not to change. The menu has been the same for at least five years. 2. Beers, whether on tap or via bottle, are prohibitively expensive. Iíve paid nearly twice the going rate for stuff there compared to other places in the area. Iím happy to pay a premium for hard-to-find, old, or stuff requiring intensive brewing practices, but not for something I can get on tap down the street. The food is good, but not life-changing. One really good time to go is during happy hour, when all Belgian drafts are 1/2 price and food is discounted. Overall, worth visiting, but be prepared to get off of your wallet.

Excellent place with a massive selection of beers from around the world, and as expected, a concentration on Belgium beers. Food is very good and overall the entire place is a value as you can eat and drink with a group of friends for less than $100. Amazing, and one of the many reasons to love Pittsburgh. Highly recommend this place although there isnít much to do after visiting so be prepared to take a taxi somewhere else in the city.

This place had a bit of peculiar atmosphere that I wasnít entirely enamored with. But, it seemed very Pittsburgh. I think the weirdest thing was that they had MANY Belgian beers that Iíd never heard of, but that upon further inspection learned werenít all that exciting. The prices were a bit high and the staff was a little curt. Iíd come back here, for sure, because they had a great selection and lots of local stuff.

I love this place so much, that I now buy kegs from their suppliers. It is dangerous to go here without a DD since the great Belgians on tap are high ABV. That is a warning to those who want to frequent this place. The wait staff is nice for the most part... go during happy hour from 4:30 to 6:30pm M-F for 1/2 off. And try the European Beer Festival during the end of June each year. It is worth it!

I am really torn about this place, and as I move to Pittsburgh look for me to frequent the establishment and hopefully re-rate. We were there on a sunday afternoon, and it was fairly empty. Selection is absolutely wonderful, but little that is completely unseen. I am fairly new to the Pennsylvania beer scene, but the prices seemed a bit painful compared to what I am used to in Virginia, but there were some other affordable but tasty options available as well. We only got appetizers, and they left something to be desired. Iím pretty sure the guacamole was from a powdered or frozen mix and the croquettes, while tasty, were a bit pricey as well. All of these things said, I canít wait to go back!

Been here a handful of times, left inebriated nearly each time. Old arcade games dot the dimly lit arena of booths amidst ample wood. Iíve always had friendly service thatís willing to recommend. A lot of taps, 20+ Belgians, but none of the taps are super high-end and most can be found as bottles at Dís. Lots of nice bottles, both foreign and domestic, including some rarities like Weyerbacher Riserva, but these are even pricier. Iíve eaten their pita and dip (all varieties are good, including the beer+chedder one), and I always get the buffalo bites as theyíre great (ask for the blue cheese with hot, they will do it). The main drawback here is the price, so go for happy hour and get 1/2 off Belgian drafts plus $0.40 bites. Iíve dropped at least $20 every time Iíve gone, but itís hard to say no when youíre drinking oud bruins for less than $4. Nice place, but donít expect Belgian Heaven despite the prices: I didnít catch one Struise, Rochefort, or De Dolle beer last time I was there. But donít
