New menu has interesting choices such as crab cakes (very good - more crab than cake), reasonably priced prime rib on weekends. Service is still good. Getaway now has quality local entertainment on most Saturdays. Great neighborhood cafe.

We haven't been here for awhile and decided to stop in and try their fish sandwiches. It was during the Christmas season and there were large groups enjoying their lunches. Despite the hectic feel in the air, our waitress did her best to keep us happy with hot coffee refills. When our lunches arrived, it was obvious that we would... More

We eat lunch here almost every single Friday. The fish is usually very good and there is plenty of it. The seasoned, homemade chips are my favorite. I'd rather have them than the fries. Linda is the best server. She is friendly and efficient and she knows our order off by heart.

This is a great place located in the South Hills of Pittsburgh. Great selection on the menu, favorites are their famous wings and the club sandwich. Also offers breakfast on the weekends, great for lunch or dinner. Plenty of parking available.

Our favorite place to go on a Saturday morning. They have the best breakfast around. They only serve breakfast on Saturday and Sunday but it's worth the wait.

We have been going to the Getaway Cafe since it opened years ago. Great atmosphere, very delicious food, always changing it up with new unique items-everytime awesome! The bar is nice and fun with activities planned throughout the month. I cannot speak highly enough about the owners, who always come over and talk to us, the employees are superb and... More

I have given this place time to get better. It seems like I try this place at least once a year and it does not improve. After tonight, I actually think that it is getting worse. When this place opened over 15 years ago, I thought great, a new restaurant in my neighborhood, I'll try it. When they opened with... More

If you are looking for a neighborhood restaurant, with great food and a wonderful outdoor patio, look no further! The Getaway Cafe is just off Rt. 88 in the South Hills of Pittsburgh and is worth checking out.
