NON-hip places in Pittsburgh? I.e., old-fashioned, real Pittsburghy spots?

mrfinewine | Mar 23, 2010 05:31 PM

Hi. I'm about to travel to Pittsburgh and am looking for places to eat that have been around awhile. I have absolutely no interest in anything "hip" or "trendy." I know about Primanti Bros., the O, Pamela's, even Gab & Eat in Carnegie (my favorite breakfast spot). I used to travel to Pittsburgh quite a bit in the nineties, and I was just looking over some notes from a 1999 trip. Here are some places I had written down but didn't get around to trying...and that was pretty much my last trip there for a long time. Do any of these still exist? Are they any good? Can you recommend others in a similar vein? Pricier places are fine. Bars too! Thanks!

Bloomfield Bridge Tavern
Chiodo's in Homestead
Pleasure Bar
Oyster House (on Market Square?)
Jerry's in Bridgewater
