“A must if you are looking for a meaty meal! Their food is some of the top in town. Their steaks are fantastic, albeit large. They also offer an amazing burger called the Pub Burger. (Tip - Order a side of Truffle Mayo for your fries!) I also love the braised beef Poutine. Book a reservation as this one is hard to get a table before 8:00.”

“Three gringos and an 8-legged culinary muse, who goes by the street name täkō, have brought the so-cal surf vibe to the steel city with south of the border force and fierce margaritas. easily one of our absolute favorites in town. If you like tacos this experience is amazing, Try the duck breast!!!”

“This place is located right up on Shiloh Avenue, next to Grandview Ave (where the lookout is). The staff is great, the atmosphere is the best on Mount Washington, low-lit and cozy yet fun because they have an entire corner filled with board games, great music, and their cocktails are incredible. I highly recommend the Old-Fashioned, they use fresh muddled orange and those new fancy purple cherries, the big round ice cubes, I mean come on!”
