Re: “Piper's Pub

This is my favorite spot to eat on the southside! They have such a
different menu. Their fish sandwich and the salmon club sandwich
are the best things on the menu! I highly recommend them both!
Also the beer selection is great and the service is good too. Get
There early though cuz the place gets packed quick!

Re: “Riley's Pour House

Today, I believe I received the worst service, I received in the 63 years of my life. I and a friend arrived at the Pour House at the same time as another couple. The only seats that were opened happen to be at the bar next to the other couple. We were asked what we would like to drink and then the server asked the other couple what they would like to drink. The server then severed us our drinks and the other couple their drinks. She then took the other couples order and walked right past me and my friend and never asked if we were ready to order or not. Seven minutes later the other couple received their order and we were still waiting to be asked what we wanted to order. I waited an addition ten minutes and after the failure of The Poor House to take my order for breakfast, I pushed my paper placemat to the front of the bar and told the drink maker that I no longer wish to order from a restaurant that fails to service their customers. My servicer finally arrived to take my order, 37 minutes after I received my first drink and asked if we wanted anything to eat. She stated the she was working outside and was very busy and our food was on her. I told her that that the other waitress may have informed her that I was upset but they also failed to inform her that I was no longer interested in ordering from a restaurant that treated their customers the way she did. I started to tell her that she had no problem taking the order of the couple next to me but she did not hear this, since she walked away from me before we finished our conversation. 45 minutes to take my order in unacceptable. I will never waist my morning in a place with such poor service. At least we know where their name comes from. Pour House, I believe not is it more like Poor Service!!!

Re: “Sieb's Pub & Restaurant

Family friendly, Yeah right!

Okay, I really have no words for the experience I had while attending a wedding here this past weekend. I understand these folks are running a business and need to protect what they own but you also should know how to deal with people tactfully.

I am a father of two little ones and I always watch them closely but a 2 and 5 year old get excited when the see their family and a dance floor. I was told by the dj that the owners do not want anyone running around on the dance floor because it could cause too much noise for the patrons of the restaurant below. Wait... what?? YOU were the ones which decided to facilitate weddings above YOUR restaurant. Maybe you should design the place better. Or, maybe you shouldn't have weddings any more or maybe you shouldn't have your hand in multiple in both. How about you pick one or the other.

Then while the kids from the wedding were also having fun but by no means being unruly, we were told to make sure they get in there seats and away from the windows and curtains. I was there already handling the situation and had some lady come from out of no where to tell me this.

Finally the last time I was reprimanded was when three of the children were moving out of the way and off the dance floor and into a hallway which was less crowded. It just happened that we ended up in the way of two servers who told us to move out of the way and stay out of the area for safety reasons. So a lounge area with a few places to sit is unsafe??

Come on. Get a grip and realize that you're not a super high-end establishment. You are dated and out of touch with reality. So check yourself and realize that the people who come to your restaurant/banquet hall are paying you money and should be treated with respect.

Re: “Mullaney's Harp & Fiddle

Mullaney's is the absolute finest Traditional Irish pub that the city of Pgh. has to offer. There are many wanna be Irish chain stores in town but they do not offer the warmth and friendliness of the Harp and Fiddle. The food is great and the beer selection is all that you would expect of an Irish pub and then some. Many of the staff are actually from Ireland and the live entertainment is first-rate. I would highly recommend frquenting this establishment.
