I grabbed dinner from there a few months ago. It had definitely gone downhill since I remember it as a kid. Basically one of those situations where your like..."are you guys open?"

Alright, LGP... help me out. I'm coming into town, staying at the Westin Saturday night and need a place to go eat that night. I love shellfish and pretty much all seafood, my fiancee isn't a huge fan, she likes steaks and chicken. We both love spicy and good beer. Money isn't an issue and distance to travel isn't a huge deal, but I'd rather not break the bank and rather stay in the Pittsburgh area if possible. Any suggestions?

If that’s the Westin Convention Center, The Original Fish Market restaurant is right downstairs. (http://theoriginalfishmarket.com) If you want beer, the downtown location of the Sharp Edge family of restaurants—the Sharp Edge Bistro on Penn—is a block away.

Spent the better part of 2 weeks in the Daytona area.

A lot the stuff I tried wasn't really worth mentioning. One bears repeating, however: http://www.mypiada.com/

There is a neat little area off of 675 called "The Greene"... http://www.thegreene.com/

It's almost like a little town full of restaurants and shops. Very cool. We ate dinner their twice... once @ the Cheesecake Factory, and once @ an italian place called Brio's. Brio's was good, albeit somewhat expensive. Had some Mushroom Soup which was good, Shrimp and Crab Cakes which were excellent, and drank a couple Peronis.

We went to Carrabbas the night before the storm... it was an unbalanced meal in that the Minestrone I got was awesome (and really hit the spot given that it was cold and starting to snow)... but the marsala I got was so nondescript that I felt embarrassed for them. Chicken had little to no seasoning and the sauce barely had any flavor... kind of ridiculous for a wine sauce. The garlic mashed potatoes were decent, but they couldn't save the chicken. I'll take Olive Garden's stuffed Chicken marsala and Garlic-Parm mashed potatoes any day.

The night of the Panthers game, we ate at The Rusty Bucket. Got their "3-way" which was really good. The cheesy garlic bread that came with it was great as well. They had a lot of TVs, but did not have center ice... not that I'm exactly broken up over not seeing that debacle.

Looking for something different, anyone ever visit Saltsburg:

Marchitelli's Kiski Valley Inn and PJ Browns seem to get pretty good recognition for tryouts outside of Pittsburgh. Anyone ever been?

"Stay out of Oakland.", says the nice Oakland PD officer when I asked him if there were any good places to eat dinner in his fine town.

Recommendation asked for and well received.

My team has a meeting at the William Penn next week. I am the local manager so it is my job to come up with a restaurant for dinner on Monday night for the VP, Director, and the 5 other regional managers. Probably business casual, nice but not too fancy.

Any ideas? Does not need to be walking distance but I'm thinking downtown, strip, Mt. Washington.

All expense account diners like a steakhouse: Mortons, Ruths Chris, and Capitol Grille are all downtown. Hyde Park is across the river by the stadiums.

I've never eaten at the Carlton (inside the Mellon building) but I've gone to the bar there and its nice inside.

Nine on Nine is kind of fancy, but not too much. Eleven in the strip is also really nice.

Valozzi's is very close on Fifth and is really good. Hosted a dinner there last month.

Eleven in the Strip is also choice.

Horrible experience. Sour Alfredo sauce, 30 minute wait from meal end to check, and $175 bill for 6 + 2 kids and no one was satisfied.

Five years ago it was hard to beat. Not so much anymore. I think they got a cheaper food distributor. Shame really.
