Gather ‘round the campfire! Our distinctive, open kitchen concept – surrounded by a line of intimate counter seats – will immerse you in an inviting experience of “front row dining.” You can even strike up a lively conversation with your server to learn more about our ample selection of Pennsylvania =craft brews.

What’s there to see?? In a nod to the long cooking traditions of Argentina and Spain, our kitchen crew prepares your meals and cooks them over a “live” wood fire and embers to create a refined, pure wood flavor.
Sure, you can sit at a table…or dine alfresco on our patio…but remember, a counter seat gives you a clear view to your very own cooking show! So, belly up!

Parking is easy. Nachos were great with a terrific sauce. Hamburger, Brussel Sprouts were very well made. Not too charred. Drinks were made to order. Prices were very reasonable.

It was the hottest day of the year and they only had fans. I couldn't enjoy my food when it was so hot.

One of the best house made veggie burgers I’ve found in Pittsburgh. And if you are counting points for WW let me tell you the fries are worth it!

Food was great. Our server was either very new or oblivious to what attentive service means. My wife was 2/3 through her drink and I had to ask twice about mine. Would go again for the food though.

Waiter was inattentive and a few times downright rude. He chastised my dining companion, a 78-year-old woman for using the napkin that he had put down to place her drink on, saying that if a waiter puts a napkin down to put a drink down she shouldn’t use it to for anything else.

So much staff turnover. That may not be so bad, except, there’s seemingly little/no training on server fundamentals.

We typically sit with Vanessa at the bar and she never disappoints when it comes to customer service. Always has a smile and kind word after a long day and/or week. Always on top of your order to ensure it is correct. Thanks Vanessa!

We really enjoyed our meal here and felt it was overall a wonderful experience! Our waiter was great - he has perfected the art of checking in on you but not feeling obtrusive at all. We had children in our party, and it was very much appreciated that he made the extra effort to make sure they had food and drink ASAP (we went on the last day of vacation, and they were pretty vacationed-out). He offered great advice for our dinner choices. The food was delicious and plentiful, and we enjoyed that you can watch the grill. The decor is very on trend. Can we repeat that we loved the service? We will definitely be going back.

I had the cheesesteak. It was tasty but my only complaint is that it was greasy and the grease pooled in the basket and soaked the bread.

Good menu and food. Large draft list. Other reviews complained that all the food didn't come put at the same time. This happened to us as well, sides came before appetizers, appetizers came with meals, meals came at different times, etc. However, it wasn't a big deal for us. We would 100% go back!

Small quaint place with a great variety of draft beer and a straight forward menu without too many choices. Great tasting food. Will definitely be back when visiting Pittsburgh area again.

The food was outstanding. I had the special seared tuna burger (it’s a tuna steak, not a burger made from ground tuna). It was perfectly cooked and seasoned and served with avocado, citrus slaw and a spicy aioli on a brioche bun. Messy but delicious. The tap list is large and diverse. Service was fast and friendly. My only compliant was the searing sun. We sat along a window wall and even with the black blinds pulled down we roasted in the strong sun. In the future I would ask to sit elsewhere on a sunny day.

A great spot to meet with friends. We had an early Saturday supper to avoid the crowd and FSPH was kind enough to let us linger until things got busy. The gang enjoyed their meals, brews, and the attention of our server. Been to the FSPH 3 times and will be back (with friends).
