Oooookkkk here's what I have assuming you want to spend ~8k on the reception. This doesn't include photographer, dj, blah blah etc. It's just the place and for about 150ish people.
Lake View in Greensburg - pretty dated. splits the two downstairs room with a divider. One room when divided has no windows but is beautiful. The other room has windows but has bad head table placement. If you have 220 plus people the upstairs room is pretty bomb but overall the place is pretty dated but not terrible. Buy booze from them. http://www.ferranteslakeview.com/index.html
Banquets Unlimited - crap, seriously crap. The place is old, rundown, ceilings are low. Just not a very good place. Had to get the booze from them. http://www.banquetsunlimitedpa.com/
Strategos - Very very nice place. Only downfall is they seem to nickle and dime you for every little thing. Had to buy booze there. Oh and for a Saturday wedding you had to have I believe at least 200+ people and prices were pretty expensive for a Saturday. Friday weddings were pretty decently priced though. http://www.stratigosbanquet.com/
Riverside Landing - Pretty nice. Includes beer 3 kinds lots of selection bring your own liquor. Good view over the River. The room in the church across the street was also very nice but needed 200+ people.
George Town Center - DISGUSTING. Plus very small. It was very old and dirty when we looked at it. Plus they section off the rooms and it was super cramped. Website is super deceiving. http://georgetowncentre.com/
Harmar House - Little dated but not bad. Good food, looks nice when all decorated. Supplies chair covers and alcohol. The actual reception room is separate from the bar area which takes away from the event. http://www.harmarhouse.com/default.shtml
The Magnolia Room - This one was the winner for my fiancee and I. Really just the only place we went in and said, "Wow" out of all the places we looked. It is a little out of the way of the Pittsburgh area but very nice. You supply the alcohol. They have a caterer set up. They will tray any cookies you have and cut the cake. The bathrooms were very nice. There is an incredible staging area for the bridal party that any bride would love. I am a bit biased though. http://www.themagnoliaroom.com/
Country Clubs - there are many in the area and they get a bit pricey.
That's just venues and like I said that's if you're looking to do a reception for around 8K. As more info comes I'll post it. I'm getting married Nov. 10 this year.
Edit: You have a venue. Nevermind.
