I don't think this place deserves a star, food cold,overpriced,they just put the unflavorful food on a white plate, no garnish,atmosphere sad,what happened.? I certainly hope the Mt.Lebonon inn is still good. My General Tsos was bland,my husbands food tasted a day old, bad.
My name is Mary. I am responding to the message that I received from the assistant manager. I told him that I fell on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant. He told me that he was going to talk to Amy, the manager. She called me at 4:58 yesterday and told me that she was going to talk with the Corporate office. Amy called me this morning at 9:58 and told me that the sidewalk is the property of the borough. I looked it up. She LIED to me. I want to be recompensed. I want to meet and talk with Mr. Broadhurst, but not at the McKees Rocks eat n park.
I love going to sloppy joes always a blast. The bartender is terrific. Drinks are good and don't cost a fortune. The best is D.J. Cathy, she is awesome, she engages the crowd and is full of energy. I always have a good time.
I would highly recommend going on Tuesdays when DJ Cathy is there doing her thing. I am from Detroit and came across Sloppy Joe's with people with me from all over the Midwest. We will never visit Pittsburgh again without going to Sloppy Joes and putting down a few cold ones while being entertained by DJ Cathy. Sloppy Joes and DJ Cathy is a winning combination.
Karaoke on Tuesdays is so much fun! Really laid-back environment and everyone was very nice. The blonde DJ is really hot too!
Sloppy joes has great service and great prices! On Tuesday they have karoke and the DJ is awesome! We went there for the first time last Tuesday and had a great time!
don't let one guys review from 3 years ago deceive you, this place is awesome! the drink specials are reasonable, the beer selection is quite extensive, there was enough room for myself and 5 friends to have at the bar, the bartender was attentive and sweet! we had gone on a Tuesday night which is karaoke with DJ cathy, who is incredible! the crowd was fun and diverse which is not what I had expected to find at a Mt. Washington dive-esq bar. almost everyone got up and sang something, probably because of the eclectic song collection that was provided. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get out of the overpriced pretentious downtown/ south side scene who wants to have a good time with a good crowd. plus you're right on shiloh street which is so close to the overlooks and the views of downtown. can't wait for next tuesday!
Delicious. Absolutely gorgeous interior with period specific decor, fantastic service, excellent quality.
This place has been closed for several years. A new restaurant is due to open there some time in 2015.
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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 honestly...it was well worth it.
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..
