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.
During a night out with the guys, We decided to have a drink at the Garage Door Saloon. I stopped at the bar, grabbed a beer, and proceeded back to the pool tables. After finishing our game of pool, I left my 2nd purchased beer on the side table. Upon exiting the bathroom, i noticed it was missing. I asked the guy who was sitting next to the side table, "Do you know what happened to the full Blue Moon that was sitting here?". He replied "One of the bartenders took it". I walked up to the bar and notified the ladies who were working, that one of their employees took a full beer, which i had just paid for. They told me, Tough luck and shrugged off my complaint. I asked the lady to close out my tab. She mentioned that the owner was here, and if i wanted to, I could talk to him about it. I approached the owner and explained that one of his employees took a full beer i had recently purchased. He replied "Im not your fucking Mom or Dad. Im not gonna hold your fucking hand while you go to the restroom!". I replied " I can hear you fine there is no reason to yell about this situation. Im only trying to resolve the issue". To where he replied "Get the fuck out, Now". I tried to reiterate my statement by saying, "Now...(I dont think thats necessary.)" He decided to pick me up by both arms and proceed to carry me out of the Establishment. Leaving my hands in my pockets the whole time, I made the statement "This is a little unnecessary, dont you think? I will be contacting the BBB about this". To which he replied with slamming me against the wall and saying "I dont give a shit". He threw me out of the saloon. My friends were out the door shortly after.
This place stinks, I would not recomend this place at all. I made a complaint to Andrew in person, about his bouncers because I felt his bouncer were being selective by playing favors on who gets into the establishment. Whatever happened to equality? Frankly he doesn't know how to run a business, he chose to listen to his employee who was disrespecting his paying customers instead of his customers input. What good business man will do this? Yes, once again, Andrew, will not choose to favor his customers over his a**hole of a door man. Basically, the owner Andrew Balint (aka Dj Endless) lets his bouncer, play favors to a bunch of people which was extremely discrimatory and prejudice. We're all adults here and this isnt high school anymore. I just thought it was very immature and most of all, very unprofessional. Here is what struck my nerve: while his paying customers have to wait an hour or more in line and the door man and Andrew, were letting a bunch of other people go ahead of those who are waiting patiently in line. Bad manners right? All in all, don't waste your money on this establishment, the owner is by far a pigheaded wanker who over compensates for you know what. Then he has the jackass of a door man kick me out. So yes as I am writing this, as I am extremely pissed off and sober. Never have I been more humilated in my life!!!!!! Eventually, he lets me back in because he is friends with my friend, but I was still pretty upset and did not want to be there, so I left. After all, the way he treated me, disgusted me. Just goes to show what kind of character these people are. Thanks for ruining my St. Pattys Day, the first one I got to go to after nine years of being a devoted mother!
God will meet you here! Warm people and miracles are happening! Do yourself a favor and check it out.
Interesting venue and fantastic dance shows.
Beautiful venue for a dance!
I moved to Pittsburgh in 2009 and just happened to check out Kelly's after going to a show (on a Monday, no less!). The place immediately resonated with my love of craft beer, stiff cocktails, and good food. The rotation of $4 daily specials offers a low-risk foray into trying mixed drinks that you might not be familiar with, and they are all great! Every time I have been to Kelly's (at least once per month since '09), the bartenders have offered friendly conversation, expertly made drinks, and fair prices. The DJ on the weekends isn't my taste, but otherwise, it's a great place to start the night.
Great place to worship and experience the presence of God with amazing people who love God and make His love known.
I go to Kelly's dozens of times a year--and have for as long as I've lived in Pittsburgh. It is the go-to place for me and my friends (hipster academics in our early 30s). The music gets a little loud. It's a little dark and cramped. But the tofu bites and fireflies can't be beat.
It sounds like the last reviewer is just butthurt because someone finally told him he can't have something. I'm female, petite, and have had 6 drinks in a two-hour span multiple times and have not gotten cut off. Last reviewer and co. were too drunk to be served and are pissed at being publicly shamed. His nonstop rationalizing gives it away.
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
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.
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!
we live right up the hill and we love it there. can't beat the prices and the food is good. the owner is really great.
24 beers on tap with only two of them being domestics great job. Love this place!
Extremely disrespectful & foul-mouthed security & owner! Will NEVER go back!!!
Great friendly bar. Owners on premise. Great bar tenders. Best wings around, and burgers, fish sandwich.
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.
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.
