Great place. Friendly, fun, attentive bartenders. Clean, pool tables, dart boards, juke. Great beer and liquor selections. Awsome specials
This establishment is a nuisance in a quiet residential neighborhood.
Over-priced, over-done hipster garbage. Pretentious and lousy service with high prices to boot, this is the worst of all worlds. A true sign of the hyper gentrification of East Liberty. Where a real down home BBQ joint might have stood we now have this temple to foodie BS. I wantd to like this place but there was nothing tasty on the menu, everything was over cooked and too smoky. The sides were also rather shoddy. While it is owned by an accomplished chef, his skills do not extend into all realms of cookery. Time to shut down so a trendy yogurt chain can move in!
RUBBISH! No better than the myriad of "best fish sandwich in town" offerings at every bar in the city. Just paying for a view.
This, of course, is just an opinion of mine. I personally think good drinks and a fun atmosphere is the way to go when it comes to a bar. You absolutely cannot come in here and leave without making friends, or at very least having an amazing conversation. People watching is fun here, the cheap (strong) drinks bring in quite a interesting crowd. The music is good, it's diverse, so you don't get sick of hearing the same stuff over and over. They have a jukebox in the back if you care to take over DJing for a bit. They do have $5 pizzas. For those of you who enjoy craft beers, this is surely the place to be, as they have over 100 different kinds of crafts, and new ones in all the time that they post on facebook.com/pages/1311/… . If you've never had a craft, just ask any of the staff and they will be happy to explain them to you, and find one you're sure to enjoy based on your palate. They also have 8 big screen HD TVs, and a projector, for you to enjoy all sports games possible.
I'll admit, I am pretty biased. I'm one of their doormen, my name is Paul. On that note I'll add that I don't get paid for this, and I don't make any sort of commission. I just noticed that there are no up to date reviews on this place, so I thought I could leave some information. If you ever have any questions about anything, you are always welcome to ask me. I hope to see you at our bar soon, and I hope you leave some reviews for me to read! I'll leave a list of our specials below.
$5 Captain & Coke pitchers.
or (depending on the day of the week)
$5 Smirnoff Vodka pictures. Any flavor with any mixer you could imagine. There are 1,000's of possibilities. Some of the common favorites are Coke & Vanilla (vanilla coke), Blue Pitches are blueberry vodka with sprite and Blue Curaçao to add some color, and watermelon or strawberry vodka with cranberry juice.
$3 Fireballs or MiniBeers.
$4 Grape or Cherry Bombs.
$5 Pints of homemade Sangria. (Tastes amazing.)
$2.50 Coors Lite aluminum pints.
They also have a few beer specials, but those change by the day, stop on by to see all of those.
Great food, added a bar with great microbrews!

Yes my background was not nice suffering with an addiction, going to penitentiary, after regaining my freedom I went to school and received a associate degree in Social Work, brought a house for first time home buyer and gained a job working at Mercy Behavioral health as a Peer support worker. On May 20th 2012, my life fell apart my house caught fire from a cigarette and my insurance do not want to honor it claim. The ins...urance company trying to give me a Arson case and look like they just might get away with it. I suffer with mental health issue and comply with people who in my life that give me support due to on January 25, 2013 my mother Ora Lee Carroll died and I was in jail ,no one from jail house contacted me to make me aware I did not go to the funeral are say goodbye. I have sister Fontia Bottoms, Westaley Carroll and Delphia Jackson and they could reach me due to The Allegheny Jail over crowing they moving me to a different facility. I was incarcerated from Feb 27 2013 to September 28, 2013. I need Rick Earle or Brad Hudson to come to court and see what the system is doing to me.

How can you be a Pastor and Elder at the same time? The church has property that for the pastor and his family, however he renting out the church house and brought a town house and every sunday bagging for money.
What a dump!
First time trying, Food and the experience was delicious, quaint atmosphere, prompt service and a large portion for a small price. Customer service made you feel like royalty! Will be back again!!
I agree w/BikeFan. This is a dismal restaurant serving C- quality bar food and
doing so with complete apathy. If not for the location they would have shut
down years ago. A dismal establishment that will not get a penny fro me!

I am writing in a response from the District Manager for the Eat'n Park Establishment in McKees Rocks...
I received a letter on June 4, 2014 after having sent in two online complant' forms filled out to the corporate office in Hometead, PA...I had asked for a response from the Prsident/CEO of Eat'n Park...but got a response from the District Manager, Domenic Fricioni....in which he is in complete agreement with the Restaurant Manager...If Mr Fricioni would have surveyed, questioned all the waitresses about me...he would have found me to be a very nice person and customer...except for one Waitress named DOLLY...she has no personality and I can't Understand why she is still working there ....since this Restaurant Chain prides itself in the Corporate Name...HOSPITALITY...this district manager, I believe got his ifo from one person...and the one person is a Manager of the restaurant...and this manager has not been at this restaurant 24/7/365 as I have been patronizing this restaurant in McKees rocks for the last 5 1/2 years...in which...this manager was not in charge during the length of time I have visited...Mr Fricioni should have investigated a little more...Here now is my letters/complaints to Eat'n Park:
had sent in a long complaint...you replied that is was being handled by the District Manager of this McKees Rocks Restaurant...as I said before...I asked to talk to the President and CEO a couple of years ago because of the Lil' Hamburger Sliders...which your Hospitality Group removed from the menu....I have not heard anything...and I don't know if anything was done in this restaurant to individuals...
It was true I was loud and very upset, but my mother did not deserve this Grilled Mushroom, Onion, Swiss Cheese on Sourdough...When I, as a paying customer, not get what I ordered, especially when it is for my mother who is 84 years old and totally handicapped and disabled....I get pissed...wouldn't you if it was your mother...????
I am sending a copy of my original complaint dated 05-11-2014...
I would like a return call from your President Mr. Jeff Broadhurst
I have submitted a complaint form once before in the past a couple of years ago about your Hamburger Sliders...you removed them from the menu...I also chatted with your president of the Eat'n Park Group, which I would like to do once again...
In turn...I loved the Chicken Quesadilla since then and have ordered your Original Super Burgers and Baked Cod Dinner for my mother (2 pieces of Cod)...she loved this dish...
I have one problem with only one waitress in this restaurant...her name is Dolly...I took my cousin in for lunch several weeks ago and was sat at a table...This waitress has not one ounce of Personality or Happiness in her body, take a survey of the waitresses and see if there have been complaints lodged against her in the past..... I told her so right there and then with my cousin listening on...I told her that I come in and say hi to most of the waitresses who notice me...I've said hi to her in the past and get no response not even a smile...I had watched her for several years now...she asked if I wanted the manager...I said no...I just wanted her to acknowledge me and greet with a smile and take interest in your customers, especially, if you/she wanted a tip...
I have always asked if the coffee is fresh...I don't like coffee that has been sitting around for an 1 1/2 or longer...ask Alaina in this restaurant if this is true...she has made new coffee in the past, knowing that the coffee had been on the hot plate for a time....One reason is this: when I first started going to Eat"n Park in McKees Rocks 4-5 years ago (I came from California to Sheredan/Pittsburgh, PA to care for my 100 % handicap and disabled mother...I do everything for her...also true...I am disabled too...I have gone through 3 bypass surgeries to get blood to my legs, 2001, 2006. 2010...I should have died in 2006), I walked into the restaurant in the evening with a young dark haired waitress who was high on something, I could smell the coffee when I walked near the hotplate when I was being seated towards the restrooms...I asked the girl if the coffee was Fresh, she stated yes...I pored one creamer in it...and it was still as dark as when she brought it to me....I then asked a different waitress to bring me a fresh cup of coffee...when I was given a new cup from another waitress...I called the original high drug waitress back over...and showed her the difference between old coffee and fresh coffee when I put one creamer in each....total extreme comparison...
Deep Fried Mozzarella Sticks...numerous times I have ordered Mozzarella Sticks and a number of times the cooks Deep Fried the Cheese out of the sticks...all I was left with is Deep Fried Breading...ask Alaina once again...I asked Alaina on the last time I ordered Cheese sticks to let the cooks know that I don't want the cheese melted out of the Breading when Deep Fried....once again...two of the 5 sticks were missing the cheese..Alaina asked if I wanted them to make another batch...I said no...I get down to the last 2 to eat...and it just pissed me off again...especially, when I asked the waitress to let the cooks know...I asked her if she told them...she said "No"
I have seen manager's in the past (think about it...I sit at the counter 99 times out of 100 in the last 5 years of visiting this restaurant) -ie. Anthony tell the cooks when orders were put up under the heater, for the girls to pick up and deliver, to lighten up on the amounts, gravy, ingredients, etc.
all the while...I have befriended many and /or all waitresses, young and old...and have been know as the candy man when I bring sweets and pass out to the girls, cooks, managers...(all Shifts)...Chocolate Kisses, Dove Chocolates (expensive candies) and the like...and just recently gave young Sara and newbie, Cynthia a Mother's Day Card each with a Baby Ruth Candy Bar to go with it...Sara just had her 2nd child and Cynthia is due in August...
and now for today's Episodic Event:
I sat down at the counter like I usually do, got a cup of coffee from Tabitha and waited for her to return...she was at the computer entering a order...Beany, who I call Cecil, from the 1950's-1960's children's TV Show..."Cecil & Beany"...helped Tabitha with my order...when I asked of what I remember in California of Grilled Mushroom & Onion Swiss Burger on Sourdough...Beany pointed it out on the menu, Note, I did not have my glasses...That is what I ordered for my mother, who is 84, totally disabled...she can not wash or even wipe her genitals, stand...she can not do anything...she depends on me...as when I order out...I depend on my servers, Management and more...
I pay my $8.34 and leave a $2.00 Tip
I get home...take the burger and fries out of the to go box to place on a plate for my mother, but set my mom up with a made table top on her lap in her recliner...then place a bib on her...
then I open the box...see the Sourdough Bread not grilled, slightly toasted...and I do mean ever so slightly toasted...a smidgeon of brown....open the sandwich... several-meaning 3 slivers of Mushrooms, a large slice of Onion uncut...my mom has very little teeth and not many more onions at all...the Swiss Cheese is barely visible and the sandwich is dry...no condiments on it...I use to get very large and extremely tasty Grilled Mushroom, Onion, Swiss Burgers in California....
I went back to the McKees Rocks Restaurant and gave the sandwich back to Anthony and said...don't get me mad, upset with this with sandwich...I then revealed the ingredients in their sandwich they gave to me which they expected me to give to my mom...
Many waitresses here know that usually, when I order...I am ordering for my mother...I also give congrats to another Black Young Cook with how my mom liked his cod dinners...
I showed Anthony and told him (Loudly)...that the sourdough was not grilled, you had 3 slivers of mushrooms, a large slice of onion too big for my mom to bite and chew, where "Grilled Onions" are suppose to be a heaping amount of grilled onions not a 1/4 teaspoon of grilled onions on a burger this size for $8.00, and the Swiss Cheese is barely visible...melted off the burger in the cooking preparation....and to top it off...the sandwich is dry, no Condiments...
I was told after the fact, that the only sandwich that comes dry is the Grilled Mushroom Onion, Swiss Burger...who sends out dry sandwiches...In California; the Grilled Mushroom, Onion, Swiss Burger on Sourdough usually came with Thousand Island dressing or Mayo...no one told me this sandwich is comes dry when I ordered it.
I continued to be very vocal, and yes the restaurant had customers....I feel if you're going to send out orders that are not up to par, let alone, totally unacceptable...ask yourself Mr. Trevelyan...if you took this sandwich home to your handicapped mother...how would your "Toleration Level" be...
I was told by Manager James W. Kyle to wait by the door...other customers heard me...and they, like Paul Harvey on the radio "Knew the Rest of the Story" with my mom, my never causing an issue or bother anyone there...passing out my candies to young kids, mothers, dads, grandparents and more...know what the Restaurant is serving up, especially for my mother
Today was the "Straw that Broke the Camel's Back...I have been 86'ed from this restaurant...and truly...I do not care to go back....I prefer to go to Bob Evans on Route 60 near Robinson Mall....and my waitresses there and any where else I go...will here of my complaint with Eat'n Park in McKees Rocks...I am sorry to be this way...but this is how I feel...not only because you affected me...but how they affected my mother.
Thank you, if the president would care to meet with me...I would be willing...but not in the McKees Rocks Restaurant
If I am wrong...please disregard this complaint and go about your business...which is "Hospitality"...if this can't be administered in a more responsible position on the part of Eat'n Park....since the name of your company is "Eat'n Park Hospitality Group"
Social Media does wonders for a company...Good or Bad
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram...
I prepose, and suppose, maybe some in house cleaning and training needs to be done....all waitresses are fine except for the one I mentioned...Dolly, even the cloned sheep named Dolly has/had a better personality
This place is terrible. Awful service, awful food, awful everything. All they have going is the great location, but they are wasting it. I wish that someone would come in and turn this place around because it could be great. The owners must have no idea what they are doing, because a lot of money is being lost due to the mismanagement of this joint.
Gorgeous, peaceful setting. Fantastic concert venue. A hidden gem.
You won't be disappointed.
The only place downtown that makes local fare a priority. I wish it were open on weekends, because it's the kind of place that makes Downtown seem unique and charming for visitors. The breakfast, sandwiches & salads are great: healthy, fresh and unique!
