Great location and good a buzz, the staff was accommodating and friendly, parking seems like it could be tough on the weekend. The starters are huge! Get one for the table if you get mains. The sandwiches were were well flavored. The buns are far too big, could def make it look better and be more balanced if rethought.

The bar here was hopping and the bartenders were very engaged with their patrons. Everyone seemed to be having a great time. We waited 50 minutes for a table on a Saturday night. Table service was fine, but the food was mediocre. Two of our party became ill after eating here.

I am a wine drinker so can't comment personally on the beer, but there was tons of choices, some with very high alcohol count! The food looked amazing but we didn't eat. Really great atmosphere but super busy on Saturday night.

We stayed at the Sheraton in Station Square and found Fat Heads on Trip Advisor. we walked from our hotel, approximately 1/2 hour. Chilly but the awesome food and drinks at Fat Heads made every step worthwhile. We waited about 10 minutes for a table. Our waitress Darlene was terrific. Food was great and beers awesome. Nothing but good things... More

I'm a big fan of Fat Heads. They have a pretty big menu with tons of great bar food ranging from wings and burgers to some of the best sandwiches in the burgh. It's a great place to grab dinner with friends, have a few drinks before heading out for the night or posting up and watching whatever game (football,... More

Stopped here on a Sunday. This is a true Pittsburgh sports bar with an amazing selection of local craft beers on draft as well as tons of bottled beer. My companions have been here many times before. The service was excellent, the beers cold, liquor selection good and everyone around us was raving about the food. I will definitely return.... More

I've eaten here a few times now while visiting my daughter who attends Pitt. Each time the food has been excellent with big serving sizes. Between us we've had salads (Buffalo Chicken ), burgers and the French Dip...everything has been delicious! Although I didn't try any, there is a huge selection of beer. There was a short wait to be... More

I went to lunch about a year ago with a friend who told me about the Buffalo Chicken salad that she was obsessed with. I was going to go for that one too but after seeing the menu, I had to try the Pittsburgh salad. Honestly, BEST SALAD I EVER HAD!!!! The homemade ranch is sooooo good you'll want to... More

We went to meet up with friends for a late night burger and some beer. It was a busy Friday night with many diners. Food came fast and was delicious. We ordered an extra meal for friends arriving later, it came quick and was fantastic! Fun place to visit.
