After making a reservation for 10 people, and have us waiting for more this one hour, they told us that there aren't tables for more than 8 people. Very rude.

This place is a haven for burger lovers. Portions are huge and fries overwhelming. Draft IPA beer is really good. Along Carson Street where everything is happening.

Long wait, but worth it. Sandwiches are huge and delicious. Enormous choice of beers. Cool atmosphere with friendly waitstaff. Grab a drink while you wait for a table.

We made a return visit here because our first experience was so good. This visit found a much busier time, but we were seated quickly and were well taken care of. The choice of beers here is great and the food is over the top. Ir's a "don't miss" when in the Burgh.

Business is good because they are expanding. It is a popular place as it is always crowded. The salad's are good with French Fries on the salad, like Primanti's. Hamburger's and sandwiches are good and reasonable. What a better way than to wash down their sandwiches than with their craft beers.

My wife and I split an order of onion rings, wings and the Heart Attack burger which came with home made fries. Entirely too much food but we did our best. All the items were delicious and the service was first rate. If ever in Pittsburgh we will be back.

Had a craving for wings when staying at a nearby hotel. Walked along Carson Street till I found this place, recommended by hotel. Lots of choices for wings. A bit of a dump and the service was sloppy, but it was late at night. Wings were okay, but nothing special.
