Located in Lower Lawrenceville, Cinderlands Foederhouse is a craft brewery and scratch kitchen. In a self-made city like Pittsburgh, rebirth happens through every citizen's decision to start something new, and pursue progress right here at home. At Cinderlands, we make beer and food that reflect the diversity of our community - both contemporary and familiar, high quality and inventive, serious and fun. And we invite you in to share in the warmth of that fervor. We're thrilled to be part of a generation of small breweries and independent restaurants with their finger on the pulse of what makes Pittsburgh one of the grittiest, hardest-working, and yet still-shining cities in our country. With our small contribution through the making of beer and food, we believe our cinder-dusted town's brightest days, and best beers, still lie ahead.

    We didn't want to order through our phone and it took a while for a server to realize we wanted human interaction rather than through a mobile phone.

    Our first server was rude. Our second was just there to get a job done. There was someone helping that was really nice. The beer selection was poor (Mostly IPAs.) and the food selection wasn't great and neither was the taste.

We will most certainly be back, especially for the fried olives and curry mussels! Shout out to Dan, the nicest guy around!

    We had a party of four and really thought everything was great. I had the Arch & Dunn draft which was awesome. My wife the Uncle Ebenezer which I tried and it was very good. The food was excellent. I had Cheeseburger Egg Roll & Braised Pork Shoulder which was also really tasty. Little zing on the egg roll was nice. Others enjoyed their meals too, which included the 24 Hour Brisket & Chicken Nacho Sausage Sandwich. Highly recommended!

    Overall, we enjoyed our experience here. Food was tasty and the menu, creative. Our server was helpful, friendly, and attentive. Decor was fun and attractive, but not too trendy or over the top. Menu offered a great selection of varying portions (small plates to shared to entrees), but choices weren’t overwhelming. The atmosphere was very loud and we were sat upstairs by a fan that added to the noise. It would have been great if the upstairs was a little more closed off to help filter the sounds from below. They were a little heavy-handed with the salt in some dishes, but the portions were very generous. Lastly, the menu had very tiny print and was difficult to read. There also was no large print version offered. I’m sure I sound old with these comments, but they were significant enough for me to mention for our otherwise good experience. Would recommend.

    Very underwhelmed by entire experience. Lack luster waitress who did not seem happy to be there nor very attentive to our table. Drinks took at least 15 minutes to arrive. One member in our party ordered an orange juice (went for brunch) which they told her they couldn’t offer because they were reserving for the alcoholic cocktails. Two people in our party ordered the vegetarian breakfast sandwich which was a cold fried egg smothered in a very large portion of a cold spicy sauce and topped with shredded, uncooked brussel sprouts. The sandwich was truly the worst breakfast I have ever ordered at a restaurant. Fried potatoes were good and different than others I’ve had elsewhere which I appreciated but unfortunately they didn’t make up for the rest of the experience. Would not go back .

    Service was good. The food (Alfredo, the pork sandwich, the fries in particular) was so salty it was almost unpleasant to eat. Otherwise the other food (Brussels sprouts, roasted pork plate! was good but not a place I would rave about.

    We showed up at our reservation time, and were prompted seated. We had a larger group, so we were seated in the balcony. There was a restroom on the level with us along with another 6 top table. There was ample space for 9 at our table. Service was good. Our server was attentive and helpful with menu questions The beer was outstanding, and there was something for everyone at out table. The food was above average and well portioned.

    It was okay. I would go again for a beer or two but the food was just ok. My husband said his burger was good but the brisket I had was very disappointing. I didn’t even eat most of it. I think it was overpowered by the mustard or something. I’m not a picky eater so for me to say I didn’t like something is rare.
