We are enjoying a nice meal before the theater and this week we chose Meat and Potatoes.
We were seated right away and then greeted by our server. If I was to rate the service, it was a 5. Very pleasant staff and very prompt.
We started with the mushroom risotto which was good just a tad bit salty, some “fried tater” that were really good tasting French fries with chives and a good amount of garlic. They were cooked crispy and were not greasy.
We ordered the Wagyu Flat Iron steak with potato cake, grilled broccoli with a sweet potato purée. The steak was served with a large dollop of bacon jam.
The meat was cooked perfectly and the sides were very good just slightly over salted.

The name says it all Meat and Potatoes. What better way to define a delicious meal everytime.
Seating is tight and crowded that would be my only complaint. Food and drink is very worth the closeness.

While visiting Pittsburgh for the first time, we decided to try Meat & Potatoes, since we had seen it on the Travel Channel. We sat at the bar and immediately welcomed by the barback, who introduced us to the three bartenders, who would be taking care of us. We had already previewed the menu online, so we knew what we were going to try. We ordered a Manhattan Perfect and an Appletini. They kindly told me that they didn't have the fresh apple for the appletini, since they muddle it, so instead I ordered an GG Cosmo. Both drinks were made perfect and very tasty! In fact, it was the best Manhattan that my fiance has ever had! We then ordered the fried chicken livers, the bone marrow, and the wild mushroom risotto. The bone marrow was outstanding, but the risotto had pockets of it that were very salty, and the chicken livers were too spicy and overcooked. When we told the bartender, he immediately took the chicken livers back to the kitchen, and off our tab. Overall, we were very happy that we came to try it- the drinks and the marrow were the stars! Give it a try! You'll love the place!

Although we only had time for drinks & local brews at the friendly & obviously popular bar before the performance at the conveniently next door Public Theater, this lively scene has an enticing menu, featuring mussels du jour, which we'll be sure to sample next time we're in town.

My husband and I came to Meat and Potatoes for an early dinner before a Pirates game. It was phenomenal. We made a reservation for 5:00 pm and were seated right at 5. Our server was excellent, we were able to ask questions about their drink specials, beer, and different kinds of sides. We ordered the ribeye for two. It was cooked perfectly and the bone marrow was delicious. We had a side of truffle fries, they were okay, nothing too crazy. We had the grilled bread for an appetizer with their seasonal jam. The peach jam was especially delicious. When my husband and I return to Pittsburgh, we will go back to Meat and Potatoes.
