    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?

    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

    This rusticly yummy place is 140 years old! It is Pittsburgh's oldest Bar and Restaurant & is an official Historic Landmark. When it first opened in1870, oyster were 1 penny & beer was 10 cents!

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

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

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

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

    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!

    Ask for Franny if you get a waitress, she is the bomb

    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!
