Venue with absolutely no amenities, a history of sexual harassment, & run by a commitee with a horrible attitude. Cliquish & judgemental would be an understatement. They hastily ban people for having an opinion that doesn't completely align with theirs. It's a complete waste of time for anyone wanting to play a show in Pittsburgh. The atmosphere is awkward & uncomfortable & the shows are sparsely attended.
Worst drink and customer service I have ever experienced from a bar. I politely asked for a cocktail menu and Caleb C. rolled his eyes at me and huffed as he turned. I ordered a Rusty Nail cocktail that had two ingredients Scotch and Drambuie of which it was poured very heavy on the Drambuie. I was polite the entire transaction saying please and thank you of which Caleb C. said nothing to either me or my friend. The people behind us even noticed his attitude towards us and even inquired upon it asking what we did to make Caleb C. frustrated with us. Caleb C. also associated the people behind us with them and proceeded to make the frequent customers Moscow Mule very sub-par as per asking them myself. I honestly feel shafted for $12.84 not only in money but in time and leaving such a bad taste in my mouth.
Love the Rock Room. Cool, friendly crowd, good drinks, and the food rocks. (No pun intended). LOL Give this place a try. You won't be sorry. Randy McDaniels, TLC.
Why should they have limited the amount of single men? As a past dancer there I can say while we may have had single men not all were ones that were paying customers as far as dancers lol. A lot of men just came to literally drink beer, be cheap, and nothing else, sweetie.
My wife and I had stumbled upon this place while boating. Great bar and place to grab an afternoon bite! Highly recommend.
They have this new chef in the kitchen me and a couple of friends went last weekend and ordered a California burger OMG the best burger I've ever tasted I will definitely be going back I think his name is moody good job
it was great, of course you had to be on time may be even in line early. I had out of town guess we ate we party to great old school music I had a ball.
This is Michael from Horse Rock Entertainment and I am a big fan of the Howler's venue. Everyone is super friendly and fun!!!
Best theatre ...great acting
Um, you don't have to be gay to be a bald fat guy
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."
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.
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.
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.
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.
