Pittsburgh Blue - Maple Grove - First mention?

I was at a Chamber of Commerce event this weekend that had a big focus on lots of restaurants, catering companies, and such. One of the restaurants that made an impression was Pittsburgh Blue, a steak and seafood and tavern type place. While most caterers and other venues were giving out cheese or some kind of weird crostini, Pittsburgh Blue was handing out a small cup with a LARGE prawn/shrimp in it. A bit of cocktail sauce was in the bottom of the cup. The prawns were some of the biggest I have ever seen, they were HUGE, and the cocktail sauce was spicy and delicious. Needless to say this sparked my interest in the place. I hopped on the chow boards to read some reviews and get opinions. I found nothing! I am either really bad with the search engine or nobody has written anything about it. What gives? Their website looks good, the menu items seem interesting, the cooking style of the meat intrigues me. They have oysters, steak, scotch, beer, onion rings, and other stuff that all sounds really good. Is this a Mecca of Meat I have missed out on? Can somebody shed some light on this place, and why I haven’t heard of it or been there yet?
