    If it was my last day ever in Pittsburgh, this is where I'd go. My favorite place to have a beer

    Their fish is delicious of course. But don't forget to have some fresh buttermilk and a fried oyster.

    This place is very tasty and have great prices. Where else in a major city in this country can you get scallops and two side dishes for under $9?

    Although it's a historic restaurant that's 140 years old, it's really amazing how the food has kept this place alive. Food is all frozen, breaded, and fried. Not good. Not tasty. Don't go!

    Oldest bar in Pittsburgh. They have outside eating and it's right in market square, Trendy part of town. Our waitress was the sweetest the food was decent. The decor is old loved it not much update

    That bottle with the hot peppers looks deadly. It just vinegar. Very tasty on your fish sandwich.

    Classic fried oysters and a great fish sandwich. The best part are the pictures on the wall. Since 1870.

    They just put in seafood and chicken wraps that are surprisingly tasty! And reasonably priced. AND they just started selling chowder by the quartz to go!!

    Control your own destiny by building your own seafood platter. Be sure to include fish, a crabcake, and some famous oysters!

    We ordered the monster fish sandwich, which is basically a whole filet balanced on a bun. Go one step down with the jumbo unless you haven't eaten in a week!
