First time for brunch here! Have had many a late night or lunch/dinner here! Brunch was delicious! I had the feta, asparagus, sun dried tomato egg scramble with potato latkes and a English muffin along with a Troëggs. It was delicious and recommended! Parking is street parking or you can park in the garage under the library and walk over.... More

I have been eating here almost once a week for several years. I have tried many of the items on the menu. It is my "go to" place.

This restaurant is located in the midst of the Murray Ave strip of businesses in Squirrel Hill. Atmosphere is calm and relaxing. No more than 30 tables, bar and two tvs. Decent selection of American fare. Really nice options for specials and specialty burgers. Nice touches of serving with a pepper grinder and Dijon mustard. My burger was fantastic. Seasoned... More

Went to the Murray Avenue Grill for the first time and we were very pleased with our choice. It around 7:30 on a Sunday evening and were seated immediately although we saw that a line formed immediately after we were seated. The decor wasn't anything to speak of. But the temperature was perfect (I often freeze inside restaurants) and the... More

Must have been a full hour plus after being seated before the food arrived. Retrieved our own boxes for leftovers from the bar before the waiter came back with some. The food was good and the price was fair. Eating out on the sidewalk was pleasant.

Had a really nice dinner here on the sidewalk outside the restaurant. Nice talapia special and the kids were happy with the kids menu. Server Carlos was superb.

Absolutely my favorite burger place. This is a steak shop. They have seafood, beef, and chicken. Onion soup is good. But by far they have the best burgers around. It is also a bar. Kind of small and sometimes you have to wait.

There are a lot of different restaurants on Murray Avenue and this is one you should try. There's a warm and welcoming atmosphere when you first enter, not like a lot of other pubs in the area. We were seated straight away and had our drink orders taken promptly. The menu offers plenty of good options and there is something... More

The food is not average but not quite very good so we had to go with the lower average rating above. The wines by the glass favor the house, are just ok and way overpriced, would be much better for the customers if you could buy a reasonably priced bottle or BYOB. Service was very good. Due to its neighborhood... More
