Patrons will feel like they stepped into an English pub when they go to Piper's Pub. The wood paneling provides the perfect atmosphere for the English music and brews. Occasionally, bands perform here. Typical pub sandwiches and snacks are served throughout the day. The best thing about this pub is that it provides a quiet place to chat with friends. See website for menu, scotch and beer lists, brunch details, and soccer fan info.
Since my husband is British we opted to make Piper s one of our dining choices while on vacation in Pittsburgh. We dined along with our five children ranging in age from 3 to 15.
My husband and teen opted for the Shepherd s Pie. Although, the food was plentiful, my husband was disappointed that the food didn t taste like home. I opted for the corn beef and cabbage. The meal was pricey due to the simple fact that the corned beef was scant and dried out. This is especially so because the cabbage was severely under cooked and completely dwarfed the scanty meat. An entire dinner plate of cabbage is just too much.
Our younger children all chose the chicken tenders which were so crunchy and overcooked they were unable to chew them. For afters we ordered 2 ice cream sandwiches. Those were large enough for the entire clan. Ice cream sandwiched between short bread makes for a great finish. However, their simplicity was drowned in three different sauces, which completely overpowered the dessert.
Despite the mediocre experience we d still give the pub a second go to see if this was just a one off occurrence. I d give Piper s a 3.5, but 1/2 a star isn t an option.
Piper's Pub is definitely one of our favorite, if not our favorite, place to eat! Their Shepard's Pie and Guinness Stew are to die for. Sunday brunches are great. Don't miss the Scotch eggs and be sure to try the Ploughman's Platter with samples of different cheeses. Prices are good. My only other advice is to not to be there during a soccer match. It tends to get a little nuts!
This is a top 3 restaurant in Pittsburgh, easily. They have your typical english, irish, scottish foods like bangers, rashers, scotch eggs, corn beef and cabbage, fish and chips, etc. However, you can also get a great Guiness Stew, portebella stack, chicken medallions in Jameson gravy, etc. You can tell I have been here a lot and love many of the foods here. Great big beer and scotch menus as well. Warning, this food is heavy and can make you full. Don't overeat or you will be in pain. Also, I consider this winter food. I had a first date here with the girl that I married.
With so many places to choose from on East Carson, this is one of the best choices. If you're a beer person, they have a million taps. A giant shelf of Irish whiskeys too. Not to mention reasonably priced meals- and an awesome sunday hangover brunch menu! The sexy staff will charm you too. Finally, if you're into soccer, this is the place to watch the game.
Stick to the Irish stews and pot pies! The sandwiches are okay, but nothing exciting. The stews, chicken pie, etc. are wonderful! Huge portions, filling, and tastes even better than mom's. The beef chunks are tender and full of flavor. The chicken & mushroom pie has nice chunks of mushroom along with the chicken, and the gravies are worth falling off the carb wagon. Can be a little smoky, but as a rabid non-smoker, I will chance smoke for the food.
In short, the fish & chips are very good. Not the best ever, mind you, but for Pittsburgh, one of the best and reasonably priced. However, I feel that they should serve a wedge of lemon along with the tub o' tartar sauce, but they never do.
They have a bar up front with a few high tables and large screen televisions. At the back are the booths and regular tables. Lunch usually fills up pretty well, so I suggest either an early (before noon) or a late (after 1:30 p.m.) arrival.
I have also had the generously-sized Shepherd's Pie. Presented in a wide low bowl, it is a variation of the traditional version. Mine was served just a few degrees cooler than the surface of the sun--piping hot! (Which is good for those leery of food-borne microbes.) This is another fine pub dish.
When I'm in the mood for a fish & chip lunch near the Southside, it's Piper's.
Piper's is just hands-down a great place. It's a clean, relatively quiet environment where you can eat or drink in peace. The import beer selection is incredible, as is the menu. With a huge dining section, it's easy to forget you're in a bar while you enjoy your enormous portion of bangers and mash, sheperd's pie, or other hard-to-find-elsewhere menu selection. It's even ok for kids.
