Great service, Stacey was really a great server,
The Porterhouse steak was really a bad cut.
Steaks are over priced, and $4.95 for one shrimp add on for shrimp cocktail was a little much.
Would it hurt to have 6 for two people instead of 5 shrimp.
the filet was awesome had a surf and turf was really good but $$$$$$$$
Creme Brulee was great

Great dining option in the Maple Grove area. We sat at the bar and had great service by Brendan. Would highly recommend the steaks and hash browns.

We went for my birthday. It was my first time every being there. The food was amazing. I enjoyed watching the wait staff and cooks back in the kitchen. I had the steak and lobster, and it was fantastic. Anywhere I go that is my go to meal if it is available. At Pittsburg Blue I have to say the steak was the best I have ever had. I would go there again and recommend it to anyone looking for a good spot to go out to eat whatever the occasion.

The food was fantastic! We had a reservation and were seated right away, but the wait for our server and the food was a little on the long side. Still, the aged ribeye was one of the best steaks I've ever had.

Way to expensive for the food served. Way better steaks at Texas road house or Mavricks for half the price and sides come with it. We loved our server, and all the staff were great, just couldn't justify the cost for the food, just wasn't worth it!!! Honestly my husband cook steak better on the grill.

My family has dined here many times and have always had great service and food. We dined here this past Saturday for my mother's birthday and had a horrible experience. We were seated quickly but sat over 10 minutes before our server appeared to tell us she was putting in an order and would be back. She was rarely seen throughout our evening. Two at our table order the same cut of prime rib and when they arrived, the cuts were very different sizes and were both very full of fat. The other two entrees served were good. We have never felt so invisible while dining before. Bad bad service.

Great food, but I specifically called ahead of time to see if they would put a candle in the cake (for a birthday), otherwise I'd bring one. They said they would, but failed to do so; I called our server out. He didn't bring one until 5 minutes after we received the cake and we had eaten 50% of it. There was no mention by the server that he was getting one, otherwise we'd have waited to start eating the cake.

Food was delicious and prepared perfectly! Service was top notch. My girls and I had a great meal. Only request would be to add a steak option to the kids menu. My daughter wanted steak so she and I ended up sharing.

The meal just did not match the expectations generated by the prices. Manny's prices but not Manny's quality meat and preparation. And the "large" sides were not enough for four people to share. We are spoiled by downtown steakhouses! Service was pleasant, except that we were never asked if our steaks were overcooked, which they were. Probably because they are thinner cuts that are hard to prepare correctly. Not a horrible meal by any means. Also they need to expand their gluten-free ability. GF steak and seafood meant "serve what you order without the sauces", not "prepare the sauces with GF ingredients".

Has really slipped. Food was mediocre and vastly over-priced. Survives on well-heeled western suburbanites who put hipness over quality. So many, many options out there.

We celebrate my husband's birthday at Pittsburg Blue every year, and now our youngest son is picking the same place for HIS birthday. The staff knows how to make birthday boys or girls feel special without embarrassment. Everyone can find something--even our daughter, who eats nothing from the meat, fish, or poultry category except chicken.
