Hi Adam - so sorry you had a bad experience! That is not acceptable. Our restaurant manager would like to contact you to get the details. Would you mind providing your phone number and/or e-mail address so he can reach you? Please send your contact info to gene@pennbrew.com so we can set things right. Thank you very much.

My boyfriend and I were in town for some job interviews and stopped here for dinner. We had a great experience - very good German style beers, really tasty German food and fried pickles, and a very cool beer - hall dining room with an interesting atmosphere. Our food was reasonable and delicious and the waiter was great. I'd really recommend it for a relaxed and delicious dinner out.

I had the Vegetable Flatbread. It was a large portion for an appetizer. Definitely enough for two people. This was followed by the Balsamic Chicken. Large portion and delicious. I'm a big eater but I had to take leftovers home. The food was excellent! My waitress Rhonda was top notch. I picked up some Penn Dark for the house. This is great dark German beer. By the way, the dessert selection is on the table on a flip card, not on the regular menu. I would recommend Penn Brewery to others.

The beer was good, and everything else was lousy. The staff was disinterested, inattentive, and unfriendly. No one was willing to help anyone who wasn't "their" table or customer; multiple people had to leave their tables to come up to the bar to get drinks when no one came to help them. I watched one man - who had a beer - with his friend - who was clearly waiting for one, and when an off-the-clock employee came up to the bar and was served before the customer waiting, both of them walked out. I watched another man come up to the bar and ask for a beer, only to be clearly ignored by the person standing there, because they were far too busy ringing up their check. Also, to be clear, it wasn't even busy: the staff were just uninterested in going out of their way to help anyone - the customers or each other. Additionally, the entire place really could have used a good cleaning, and the staff left the bar messy. I like Penn Brewery's beer, but the brewpub was an extreme disappointment. Will not be back.

Great food, drink selection, service, and atmosphere. Oktoberfest is something you can't miss at this place. Their in house brews are phenomenal and their German/Polish food selection is great, especially the different Kielbasa, German potato salad, pierogis, and more. If I had to suggest one place for someone to go in Pittsburgh, Penn Brewery would be it.

Great German experience. We were only in town for two days and chose to have dinner here. Very glad we did. Beers were great. Atmosphere was perfect.

Three strikes and they are out...that's right could have written this two other times, but I gave them the benefit of the doubt...No More. Their "advertised" happy hour is just a suggestion, or maybe it's the staff, who obviously really don't care. Looks like the new management was able to infuse money, but nothing else. I was really hoping that Penn was going to come back strong since I loved it when it was under the original owner, but I have gone there for the last time. Glad there are other options in Pittsburgh.

Last night was my first time at the Brewery. My date and I went there for my birthday dinner becasue I love German food. The service was great and musically the band was good. We barely finished our pretzels and our dinner was served. However... the food and the noise levels were horrible. I had to yell across the table to talk to my date and finally gave up trying to have a conversation. I couldn't even hear the waitress. There's no reason the band had to be that loud especially on a wednesday night. I was not happy with the Polish Hill dish. The sauerkraut wasn't good, the perogies were tasteless and the kielbasa was okay. Overall I feel cheated for a birthday dinner and it was not worth the price of the plate. Never going back.
