Hard to figure out why the bar was overflowing capacity at 11:15 on a Saturday morning, but I'd like to find out someday. Chose from a generous brunch menu and had the huevos rancheros, served in a bowl. It was a little tepid, but the...More

While visiting Pittsburgh we had a really hard time finding breakfast locations. Now we ended up having to go for brunch in lieu of an early meal, and sure glad that we found Meat & Potatoes. The atmosphere was interesting since it was brunch, including...More

While I didn't have a full dinner, two friends and I stopped here for a glass of wine, snuggled up to the bar and looked at the wine list. The bartender was very knowledgeable and almost got his sommelier certificate. He rattled off different characteristics...More

Arrived here on a Sunday morning before attending a show next door and got seated right away outside. Ordered off the brunch menu as that was the menu available, seemed to be the trend in the theater district on Sunday mornings. I'm not much of...More

This past Saturday night, my girlfriend and I showed up without a reservation at about 6:30, and were pleasantly surprised to get a table (outdoors per our request, though, in hindsight, the inside of the restaurant is probably a much better atmosphere than the crowded...More

Okay for a quick lunch but I wouldn't rave about it. We paid $50 for one starter and 2 mains. Portions good. Recommend Rancheros and wife had a nice steak. Chicken waffles looked huge.

Amazing food. We started with fried pickles which were hot out of the frier so they were crisp and crunchy. The pickle was so flavorful. Packed with garlic and dill flavors. Served with a creamy aioli. Then my husband had the Cobb salad that was...More

Response from Meg L | Reviewed this property |
I would say no since you have to go through the full restaurant to get there but call them to make sure.

Response from Marv R | Reviewed this property |
I would agree with the comments about time of day. Evenings tend to be loud and crowded. May not be right for all kids.
I am in a wheelchair. Is the restaurant accessible? Accessible bathrooms? I have heard from others that the spacing between dining tables is tight. Is the patio accessible? Is there more room between the tables out there?

I would recommend you ask for special seating with a reservation. They should quickly make that accommodation.
