Re: “Kelly's Bar & Lounge

I own a small business that recently moved into East Liberty, near Kelly's.

After an early dinner/business meeting we decided to walk across the street to Kelly's to wait out rush hour, as our one friend had to drive through it to get home.

The 3 of us are all educated middle aged professionals with families. We hung out at Kelly's for about 1.5 hours, during which time I had 2-3 very weak rum and cokes. The guy was pouring exactly one shot in tall glasses. I had no buzz whatsoever and was actually more hopped up on the caffeine. If it hadn't been freezing cold outside we would have gone somewhere else.

One of my colleagues, a male who is much larger than me, had about 4 very weak mixed drinks, and our other friend (the only one who was driving) had 3 beers. Remember, this was also after we had eaten an early dinner, and we were there for around an hour and a half.

This little stoner bartender with dreds down to his waist who looked to be about 24 cut us off and said "This will have to be your last round. You've had enough". Well it was going to be our last round because I had already asked for the check, but I have never in my life been cut off at a bar. It was insulting, embarrassing, and completely uncalled for.

None of us were drunk or talking loudly or misbehaving in any way. I have no idea why the stoner kid (we are all about twice his age) felt he needed to cut us off. It made absolutely no sense. There was hardly anyone in there and they clearly needed the business, so why insult your clientele unnecessarily??

I asked the kid if we had done anything to offend him or if he thought that were acting drunk and he said no, but that we had had a lot of drinks in a short time frame.We did have a few drinks, but there were 3 of us, we had just eaten dinner, and two of us were very large men.

We all have kids and get out about once a month if we're lucky, so we did have a few, but two of us were taking the bus home and were not a danger to anyone, nor were we drunk, and the other guy had 3 small beers on a full stomach over 1.5 hours.

My biz partner said the last time he took our employees there for happy hour that he received bad food and rude service from the same kid.

Kelly's lost a lot of money by alienating a person that owns a 20 person biz nearby. They are officially off of our company happy hour list - where we routinely drop a couple hundred for happy hour.

Lots of better choices in East Liberty. Better food, better drinks, better atmosphere, and nicer wait staff. As a former waitress I was apalled

Re: “Camp Bow Wow, Green Tree

My dog is one of the most important things to me in my life. He has helped me through so much. He is an extremely small dog and requirers certain things bigger dogs don't need. I am very hesitant to let people watch my dog because I want him to be safe and happy. Camp Bow Wow is the only place I will take him whether it's for the day or for boarding based on my numerous experiences with them caring for my precious little dog.

Re: “Hollywood Lanes

Clearly the best bowling alley in Pittsburgh! And as far as the staff, the best group of hard working, kind, caring, thoughtful, help people in the city!!!

Zero tolerance there, proper ID and dress code required... Also you probably want to make a reservation, especially on the weekends, cause it gets PACKED!!!!

It is one of pittsburgh's hottest new spots, & you'll bump into the whose who!!! Try it for yourself & don't listen to haters!

Great friendly bar. Owners on premise. Great bar tenders. Best wings around, and burgers, fish sandwich.

Re: “Twelve On Carson

Rude and disrespectful security. Even ruder owner who thinks he's god. Expensive drinks and poor service. The decor is nice, but save yourself the hassle and go to one of the many bars where they will treat you fairly and respectfully.

Re: “Spice Island Tea House

I love this place. There is no wine or beer but you can bring your own. The portions are enormous so you will be taking food home. Everything I have ever had here was wonderful. The staff are also great. The only problem is finding parking. But there is a small lot behind the restaurant. Bon appetit.

Terrible place. Smokey, rude people, food made me sick and the bar manager had no clue what he was doing.

Re: “Soho

I've not eaten at this restaurant for some time, but WOW!!! was the food fantastic when I did! Great Risotto, fantastic steak, service was wonderful and the portions were great too. I recall it being a bit pricier than $11-$19/plate, but was well worth it.

Re: “Papaya

What a nice place to eat. Great customer service and friendly staff. The food was and is, always fresh and distinctly different. Try the soups, the Tom Kha is special..

Re: “The Original Pancake House

Good food, very bad service. I move from one table to another because of a very busy place and I was ignored the whole meal. Could not get ketchup or sugar free syrup. But they did bring my check. No second cup of coffee. I complained and got 20 per cent off not worth it.

Re: “Rocky's Route 8

I will never visit this place again, bad food. Only one waitress in the whole place equaled long waits. Ordered Chicken Marsala but what I got was minced up chicken, runny sauce with a few mushrooms, hard microwaved potato and canned green beans. All I can say is beware!

Re: “The Elbow Room

Please update the address. They moved from Ellsworth to Walnut ages ago. Their old address is now the home of 1947 Tavern.

Re: “Off the Wall Theater

Love this theater. It's comfortable, well-designed, and it seats a respectable size crowd in an intimate setting. Oh - and kudos to whoever keeps the bathrooms so clean.
