What do you do when a grown man is screaming at a 5 month pregnant women? Clearly at this point something has to be done. This is my story.....I decided to go out to dinner tonight with Bobby and my 7 year old son. We were looking for a quick close place to eat, since we had our dogs with us I decided to drop them off at home and try out the new place by Stop n Sock, Rosalee's. This is how my experience went. They sit us outside at a picnic bench with no place mats, or silverware. The table is absolutely disgusting beyond words. I ask the waitress to bring me something to clean the table off with she proceeds to explain they have butcher paper she can bring out. Ok fine. We order our dinner and sit and listen to the live "band". Finally after almost 40 minutes our dinner arrived, except its not our dinners its our side dishes, so they aren't even bringing all the food out at once. At this point I'm realizing how horrible of pain I'm in because the table is so uncomfortable, I proceed to stand up to adjust myself and Bobby almost falls to the floor because our table is broken! I sit back down and look for my waitress who is no where to be found. Since the place is starting to fill up there was no where else for us to move to so I just sat in one spot and didn't move because I didn't want the table to collapse. Our food finally arrives and we still have no silverware to eat our side dishes with. We ask our waitress to kindly bring us a fork and she says she will bring it right out and then heads over to 4 other tables to take their orders before going back in to get us what we needed. Let me just say this the food was absolutely awful, I can't even find the words to describe how nasty this food was. I couldn't eat it. How can you mess up macaroni and cheese like honestly...come on my 7 year old can make it! So needless to say, I'm 5 months pregnant beyond hungry and now cranky because I have to pay for a meal that could hardly be called such a word, at a place with the worst service I've ever experienced. Little did I know, what was to come. After bobby forced his food now I handed him my debit card and went to my car I couldn't bear to sit on that bench another second. I see him and my son go into the restaurant to pay the bill. 25 minutes later I am fuming because he is still in there and I don't understand what is taking so long. The next thing I see is my 7 year old child coming out of this horrific place crying hysterically. As I'm getting out of my car to find out what is going on Bobby comes out screaming that they won't give him my debit card back because they can't process it with their system. I get into this place with absolutely no idea what is going on and why my child is hysterical. The owner of this horrific establishment they are trying to pass off as a southern cuisine restaurant is standing by the door with the phone to his ear calling the police saying my boyfriend is refusing to pay the bill. So this is clearly the reason my child is crying I am fuming at this point I have no idea why we handed them a card to pay the bill and we are being accused of trying to get away with not paying. Listen, I'm not going to go into as much detail as I want to I don't know if facebook will even allow me to write that much. But this man you see pictured stood in this restaurant which I'm assuming he owns and screamed at me in my face asking me "who do you think youre talking to" because I was trying to get him out of my boyfriends face so I could find out why they were holding my debit card hostage.
Here is what happened. They are running a so called restaurant that accepts credit card transactions, that they are running via a little cute square on their ipad! Their little system failed them because it not only couldn't process the customers in front of us but it couldn't process mine. They told Bobby their system couldn't run my card and that he needed to figure out how to pay for the card but he was not allowed to leave they proceeded to swipe my card several times and then told him they would not give it back to him until our meal was paid for. They tried to tell me that my card declined and I was trying to get away with not paying for my meal which mind you wasn't worth dog shit. I told her there is no way my card is declining and that I will have to go to an atm to get cash out because clearly their little system isn't working. Listen this is a long story but here is what I want you to get out of this..... My 7 year old just witnessed something that never should have happened, because of people who clearly shouldn't be in business. I am appauld not only at the fact that this man was in my face screaming at me to the point the other customers told him to back away but also at the fact that this is how business owners conduct themselves when a situation arises. All that needed to be done was they kindly explain their system wasn't working and is there another form of payment. There was no reason for any of this to happen none the less the police to be called.
Best brick oven pizza in the region. Salads are fresh and huge and their apps meatballs pastas and eggplants are made daily quite the gem. Full bar with an excellent selection of wines and craft beers
Really easy place to go and relax. Take a lawn chair and enjoy the music.
Beechview has been doing some really cool events lately!
Wouldn't recommend it. I was in need of an urgent contact lense fitting, and the doctor cancelled last minute. Overall they're not very organized either.
The Pittsburgh Reptile Show @ the Harmar house is packed with Amazing animals every month with great vendors who love their animals and want to share the love of them with you! Very informative great for the whole family. PLUS looking for a new pet or need some supplies? Everything is a fraction of the cost of the pet shops!
Um, you don't have to be gay to be a bald fat guy
Awesome customer service. They really make you feel special

I love cats
I love my mom
A bar ultimately becomes what it's clientele forces it to become. Kelly's is no exception. Before this area of East Liberty turned into Shadyside-East, Kelly's used to be a hole-in-the-wall local spot that only neighborhood people knew about...and then all the doofus hipsters discovered it and now it's yuppieville central. Just another local joint subverted in the service of "progress."
This restaurant is a great find and the view is the reason for the visit. Service was great and our meals came quickly. You won't be disappointed and don't listen to the snobs that give this place poor reviews, it truly is s wonderful place to go!
Super rude staff! I stopped in early this evening with my husband and son to grab a quick bite of dinner. Immediately upon entering and walking towards a booth, I was approached by a waitress saying very rudely "We are 21 and over, ALWAYS!" No hi...no I'm sorry...nothing. If this is the case, I get it. Just approach me with a better attitude and a little more respect. As we headed to the door, I stopped at the bar to get a food menu, figuring we'd just order takeout and eat at home. Same story from the bartender... a very rude "we are 21 and over." I said that all I wanted was a takeout menu, to order food to go (my son and husband were already headed out the door.).
The bartender rolls his eyes, walks away and begrudgingly gets me the menu.
I walked out, threw it away and will not return. You have lost a regular customer.
Intimate live music venue. Great neighborhood bar. The BEST pizza in Pittsburgh, hands down. Casual, friendly place.
Its no longer at this address. They moved to 777 Penn Center Blvd, Suite 600 in Wilkins Twp.
Rich kids playing artists, total blah
Awful, Owner (Andrew B.) has no clue what he is doing. Rude, Disrespectful, Arrogant, Lies when they can't think of a reason to not let you in...never will be back here. will be glad when this shuts down.
Keep Kelly's a real pittsburgh blue collar bar! It's the best. The negative posters here probably prefer the suburbs to actually living. Kelly's has a soul just like the city. Deal with it.
