    Second time here and the food was equally disappointing as the first time. $21 for the Ahi Tuna Chopped salad and they skipped the wonton strips. It had 6 almonds and 3 mandarin orange slices. We tried the duck nachos and it was decent.

    The service was extremely slow especially considering only about 30% of the tables were occupied. It took about 50 minutes to get our meal. And unfortunately the food was mediocre at best. I would say it’s on par with Applebee’s. Waitress was nice and tried her best but completely disappeared for long periods of time. The only saving grace to this place is the bar because of the multiple large TVs. I’d recommend having a drink at the bar to watch a game but not eating here.

    Great place to catch a game! TVs everywhere! Food was on point! Amazing beer and cocktail selection. Our server was Miles and he was very attentive and offered honest meal suggestions that we appreciated. We watched a whole Steelers game and never felt rushed. Appetizers: spicy shrimp, pretzel bites and cheese curds (pass on pickles- weren’t our favorite) Main: burgers -all cooked perfect Dessert: warm cookie in a skillet with ice cream -big enough to share after all the other food and drinks. We will definitely be back!

    Pub was very very noisy with loud screens and music. Didn’t get water at the table. The waiter kind of forgot me in the middle. Food (fish) was very good but on the small size. Beer was good. Overall it’s an ok place, might come back.

    The quality of service has faded here over time. Perhaps it was the larger party in the back room near the bar that distracted the wait staff and kitchen, but it all felt really slow and haphazard. Stick with the beer on tap - the cocktails were mediocre. Dining area lacks ambiance. Perhaps best suited for a pre-game beer at one of the high tops.

    This was supposed to be the number one sports bar in Pittsburgh. We went on opening night of the NHL season and Pittsburgh hosted Chicago. The place was nearly half full, very quiet, and kinda depressing. Food wasn’t the best. No flavor

    We have usually had much better experiences here... However: We were NOT seated at the high top in the bar even though it was requested and the floor seemed to be well-staffed and not very busy. Our server seemed to forget about us on numerous occasions, as we waited a long time 15 minutes and up for each item between interactions. Each request had to be put in twice to get anything; water, drinks, napkins....etc. We were given the wrong beers, the food was just mediocre, and our server really didn't seem apologetic for any of the delays or forgotten items. We did see the manager addressing some other tables apologetically, but he didn't make his way to us before we left... Hoping this is a one-off but it will be a while before we try again

    Celebrated Birthday with family. Service started off good, then tailed off, we really didn't see her much after meals were served. Vegan option are extremely limited. Meals were good, drinks were good. The music was extremely LOUD which was distracting to converse over. Cityworks app is a good app with good rewards.

    The brunch menu looked awesome, but we were not impressed by the food. Everything other than the breakfast tacos came out burnt or cold. One of our meals was wrong, and we had to wait nearly 25 minutes for a replacement. It was kind of management to take the meal off of our bill without request.

    Make a point to try different restaurants around Pittsburgh following the theater. We have been to City Works before and had a nice meal with great service. Today was not the same — our server barely spoke to us. We ordered a flight that came out quickly then a bar snack. 10 minutes later ordered our dinners. The dinners came out before the appetizer. Our waiter never checked on us until he took the plates then dropped the check off asking at that point 1 or 2 checks. Never asked if our meals were ok or if we needed anything. If it were not for the excellent food I would not consider visiting again.
