We live outside Philadelphia but come to Pittsburgh to visit our son who goes to college there. We make it a point to go to Harris Grill every time we go to Pittsburgh. The food is delicious. The mac & cheese - to die for. Currently I'm on a low-carb diet and was able to get a fantastic meal with zucchini noodles! We had a nice variety of food at the table, and all of it was great!

I always love coming to Harris Grill but this experience was not the best. The waitress was very short with our party and when we seemed confused on the menu or wanted to ask questions she would just respond very short and was rude. I usually have great experiences here so this was a shock and I know they are better than that.

The stairs and entry to the restaurant are a smoking area. This is right by the patio dining area. I don't like to have cigarette smoke blown on me while eat at a restaurant.

Waited an hour and a half for a meal that was unremarkable. "Famous" macaroni and cheese was boiled pasta with cheese sauce poured over and served at room temperature; crab cake sandwich was half filler; Delmonico steak sandwich was mediocre shaved beef. Waiter was unattentive and seemed surprised that we would need place settings, napkins, etc., and had to be asked several times to remove empty serving dishes.

It took over one hour to get our first appetizer. The food was overpriced and servings were small at best.

Each time I come I like to try one thing new. Had a $5 frozen cosmo at happy hour again and never disappoints....yum! Tried the fried calamari again and this time it was well overcooked! Tried the popular Henny Penny for the first time and enjoyed it. It was spicy but they advertise it that way and server warns you too. It was good, although the salmon BLY is still my favorite sandwich! Service is good. Always friendly and accommodating!

We took some out of town guests to the Harris Grill for dinner. It was a beautiful night in Pittsburgh and perfect for sitting outside.
Our food was good. My only complaint was that resturant was out of several items needed for both our drink and dinner order. We did have a great server though who was able to make several recomendations that saved the day.

Love coming here when in Pittsburgh Shadyside area. I finally tried their crab cakes. They were good but I've enjoyed so many other items here better. Love their grilled mix vegetables, unfortunately, no Brussels sprouts this time. Service great and nice atmosphere!

The food has always been amazing & that hasn’t changed.
The service is usually good too! However, this visit the service was poor. My server only came to our table 3 times to check on us, but other servers came by to refill our waters, asked how our meals were & even chatted with me & my friends. I applaud the other servers, but my server gets a zero for a score.

I hoped this would be a good experience, but it missed the mark. The service was very inconsistent - I think they’re trying, but maybe the layout of the building makes it hard to be efficient? The menu overpromises massively, but the food does not follow up. Quite unremarkable and common. Would not recommend.

I’m sure this was a one-time ooops. Made it through one drink and an app. Some kind of “kitchen drama” took place this evening. Would’ve been nice had our waiter/manager informed us instead of hearing from other tables and “wait-guests” leaving. So after an hour or so, a manager brought our bill, and nicely had the app taken off.

The outdoor dining was nicer that the slightly run- down bar area. Fine for college kids and the food was good, but very slow service and I prefer not to eat downwind of smokers ( allowed outside ). It was too. Bad as the menu looked great and the drinks were good .

Back again and first time sitting at the bar! It's also Tuesday Bacon Night! Free bacon at bar and only $1 at tables. Tried two new items tonight....the Polish Church Basement Pierogies were better than my family's recipe (don't tell them)! Only $5 too during happy hour! Last I tried the Salmon BLT which was outstanding too! The mixed grilled vegatables include Brussels Sprouts....excellent tasting too! Service at bar superb! Love this place and always come back to try new things! Don't forget to order a frozen Cosmo during happy hour too ($5)!

Major issues with service and kitchen. Waitstaff seemed disorganized and disappeared for way too long between our water/drinks/food order.

Our waitress appeared after we had waited 40 minutes for our entrees to apologize. Not sure what was going on in the kitchen but one entree came out cold. She comped our drinks and the manager then came out personally to apologize and take 50% off the bill. This was much appreciated but we will not be back again until the service improves.

I made a reservation for an outside table several days in advance. When we got there, I was told that they don't take reservations for outside (which I was not aware of). So we were sat at a dirty table and given 2 menus for 4 people. We had to ask for silverware. Both my husband and I had the wrong side dish, my daughter had to ask for dressing for her salad and my son's burger came with literally 8 fries.

Back again. Happy hour doesn't include eine other than Wednesday. Enjoyed half off frozen cosmopolitan! Yum, be careful of brain freeze so good. The Britney Spears appetizer is fantastic. Tried the double cheeseburger chimichanga for first time and it was excellent! Service great.

Harris grill never disappoints. The food is great, as is the service. The atmosphere is casual, and it's never been noisy when I've been there. But parking is on street, and Shadyside is a crowded neighborhood. Taking an über or lyft might be more convenient than driving.

We arrived for our reservation only to be told by the host that there were no tables available and probably wouldn't be for at least 30 minutes. They had a lot of walk-ins, and they don't want walk-ins to have to wait, so they'll seat them first, despite the reservations. We asked what the purpose of the reservations was, and he said he didn't know. At one point the co-owner came to speak with us and attempted to apologize and make it right, but honestly between him and the manager, they both just rattled off a bunch of excuses and none of it felt like a sincere apology for the mix-up. They said they honor reservations, but we were late (full disclosure, our reservation was at 7:45 and we parked a block away and left our car at 7:45, so yes, we were probably late, but somewhere between 3 and 5 minutes, so keep that in mind if you're heading there...you have no leeway at all). Plus the group of ladies that got sat next to us had the same reservation, the same issue, and they were there at 7:25, EARLY, and didn't end up getting a seat until after us, so there wouldn't have been a table for us had we been five minutes earlier. They said the manager tried to call me but there was a problem with my number in the system...also not true. I booked through OpenTable app, re-checked my number, and it was correct (another restaurant had used it to notify me the week prior to confirm a reservation, no issues). Also, out of fish on a Friday in Lent...they said the kitchen manager was new, another excuse. One meal ended up being ok, one was cold and had to get sent back, and the tacos were just drenched in slaw dressing and inedible. Owner made an attempt to "fix it", but he initially asked us what we wanted to make it right, which left us in a very awkward position of asking, rather than just taking care of it. He offered to make it up to us next time, which was a nice offer, but that means we'd have to go back, and we have no desire to.

Back again so soon to try other things on menu that I was debating last time! It's Winey Wednesday so enjoyed another glass of wine for only $6. Enjoyed the flash fried Calamari and grilled fish tacos! The latter came with a medley of grilled vegetables! Service was wonderful too!
