When I visited: Late summer 2012.
What I had: Duck-Rabbit Amber Ale (draught), Flying Dog El Dorado Single Hop IIPA (bottle), Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout (bottle), Jerk BBQ and Mild Wings, Double Dipper, Fish Eye Pinot Grigio for the wife.
What I liked: unique atmosphere, like going to your grandparentsí house, private and comfortable booths, chalkboard tap list can be seen from almost anywhere in the bar, nice crowd, robust beer menu with many Belgians that I had never seen before, tasty pub grub, waitress was very capable in describing the beers on offer, was great to try Duck-Rabbit after hearing so much about them in Beer Advocate.
What I disliked: American taps, while good, werenít as exciting as expected and the prices are a tad high. Still a first-rate beer bar though.
Would I go back? Without question.
Overall Rating: 90

Great Belgian selection but very pricey. Berst o go for happy hour when all belgians are half off. food is pretty solid too but again pricey. The Hop devil soup is just freaking amazing though.

In terms of beer selection if youíve been to one sharp edge youíve been to them all. Lots of Elgians but not much variety between the locations. The food is solid and the prices less so. This pub is located in an old house which adds a lot of ambience.

Part of the "Sharp Edge" chain of local restaurants that specialize in Belgian beer. Food is good but pricey. Beer also is good... also is pricey. The Belgian selection contains all the usual options and a few unusual ones, the American craft selection is good and usually features a few rarities. The Creekhouse has a strange layout in that it is a converted private residence. Whatís the opposite of an "open floorplan"? This is it.

excellent beer selection for internationals, fewer microbrews. Very good food. Can be a very pricey evening out, but usually well worth it. I really enjoy the ambiance of the creekhouse too, very nice building.

Great selection but a little overpriced and with poor service that is remarkably slow, even for Pittsburgh standards.

I would score this place much higher if it wasnít for the below average food. They tried too hard to be trendy and failed. I mean their Mac & Cheese wasnít even as good as Kraft out of the box and I have had better fish & chips at Long John SIlvers. Their prices for food were too expensive as well. They should just concentrate a on a simple traditional pub menu and beer.
Go and spend your money on beer not the food.

Went during happy hour on a Friday. Walked in the door and was seated almost immediately. As I walk by the bar, I see that it is loaded up with at least 40 taps, most of which were Belgians, the others were high end domestics and imports. Along with their impressive draft selection, they had an even better bottle selection. For a person from WV, this place is heaven. I started off with a Piraat and was happy to see that it came in a Piraat tulip glass. My guest ordered a Lindemanís Frambois, and it also came in itís appropriate glass. This place goes above and beyond anything I have ever experienced. The service was a bit slow and the beer was way overpriced, but if you go at happy hour like I did, it isnít all that expensive. I made it out of there with two meals, two pints, and a sampler for under $60. Less than I expected but had I not went at happy hour, the damage would have been a lot greater.
