When I asked my husband what review he would give, he said "meh" and I agree. The service, as others have said, was slow and generally inattentive. We sat and watched while three tables that had been seated after us received drinks and gave their...More

Went for brunch while visiting Pitt. Awesome burger with roasted peppers, grilled onion, Swiss cheese and an egg. Pizzas are very good. If you're around Schenley park don't hesitate to go.

No steps I saw, not sure what that referred to...I can't say for sure, but we went off hours on a week day and it was still reasonably busy....I bet it's busy on a Sunday...just a guess.
Do you have a Gluten-free menu?

I don't believe that they have a gluten-free menu but they can accommodate gluten free requests.
