I have eaten at many restararaunts, but I must say, that may be the best steak I have ever had. The seasoning was just and the steak could havebeen cut with a butter knife. I will definitely recommend this restaraunt to others, great dining experience

This place has changed!
This place has changed! It's been a while since we have eaten here and boy have we missed out! This place is completely different then the old wooden nickel and that's a good thing. The lounge menu offered a great late night bite, the beer selection is amazing ad the band, one sweet burgh, rocked the place.
Glad we found the NEW wooden nickel!

Lunch here is amazing! The meatloaf ( as odd as that sounds) is amazing. Wrapped in a smoked bacon with a tangy BBQ sauce and mashed potatoes!!!!!

We had out of town guest with us, and they, too, were very impressed with the food. For my taste, the music was too loud. Other than that, the meal was fantastic.

Lovely meal, great atmosphere
The wooden nickel is back on the map. They have a great bar, great menu, incredible specials and options. The only area lacking is the lackadaisical waitstaff, which at this price point is not only a surprise, its unacceptable. Granted its not all of the staff but some changes, or additional training probably needs to happen.
The bar makes a fabulous drink. I have never had a bad meal. I have also tried one of the holiday buffets which was also very good .
Dont miss the Nickel!

We had a great experience
We had a great experience at the Wooden Nickel! The setting was very comfortable, veal chops were yummy and beautifully-presented. We loved our server, BJ, who shared our memories of the Wooden Nickel from past years. We will be back

The staff was pleasant and friendly. There were two celebrations happening but never once was it loud or bothersome. Our food came out in a timely manner and met our expectations.

Suprising Little Gem!
We visited The Wooden Nickel for the first time, but I had heard a few good things about it long time ago. We were pleasantly surprised about everything. The outside of the building is quite deceiving in terms of what to expect inside! This was a great find. The food was far better than we were expecting as well as the quality of service. Everyone here was quite pleasant.

Have been visiting this restaurant
rant periodically since returning to Pittsburgh in the 70's. I like their most recent update which keeps the lounge / bar area separate from the dining area. Nice improvement.

Always high quality
Selected the Wooden Nckel as the preferred Monroeville restaurant to celebrate Godson's new job in LA. Warm, delicious bread is great, calamari appetizer is fresh and delicious (although they've cut the appetizer size in half a few months ago..so not so good a deal now), the Gertsajerk shrimp is ALWAYS fabulous. Spicy/sweet shrimp served on grilled pineapple with some wonderful cheesy risotto. Ambiance is always classy and calm with lighting just right. Service was excellent.

everyone was nice. Very expensive. special event place

Although I had lived in Monroeville for over a year, I never had the opportunity to try this restaraunt. I'm glad I finally did. The waitstaff were great. They were very friendly and knowledgable about the menu. The food was excellent and there was such a large selection to choose from. I had an 11 month old baby with us and they were very accommodating. I will definitely be back and I will be sure to recommend this restaraunt to others!

Good but not great
We had eaten there several times. The food is good. Drinks are good. The noise level in the main dinning area is unbearable, however. Not what i would recommend for a romantic dinner but for a group it is fine. I will go there again. I just don't like the noise.

A Fabulous Little Find
The food was excellent, best crab cake I ever ate.......the decor was splendid, the waitress efficient and the pecan pie was to die for!

We asked for a romantic evening since we were out with kids. We were seated next to a large group with 6 young children in a family party.

The food was unbelievable. So full of flavor. Flavor combinations would not think work turned out to be amazing.

The scallops and crab cakes
The scallops and crab cakes were both exceptional. They will give any restaurant a run for their money. My friend ordered a wine and they were out of it. The restaurant offered him another more expensive wine that they said would be comparable to the one he ordered. They were right. It was better than what he ordered and they gave it to him for the same price.
We haven't been there in awhile and we're pleasantly surprised by the changes.

BJ was our server and she was very sweet and attentive to our needs.

Drunken mushroom appetizer was fantastic, as well as the NY Steak and Lamb Chops. BJ provided wonderful service...thanks!

You have to really look for this place but worth the hunt! Food was good and served quickly looked like a favourite pre wedding dinner spot. All the employees were dressed in costume for Halloween its a bit on the pricey side for that neighborhood too so don't be surprised.

We did not want to deal with the work of preparing a meal for family and friends. I selected the Wooden Nickel based on Open Table alone. We loved it! Everyone was nice, service was great, and the food was wonderful. They also recommended a great wine to go with the Turkey, and it was great. I would highly recommend the Wooden Nickel.
