my parents 25th anniversary dinner – very accomidating, personalized service was great for our party of 16. Food isnt out of the world, but everyone in our party loved the ribs. Thanks to JIM for all your help!!!
fantastic ribs, steaks and shrimp – this is the best value restaurant in the city you get a full meal for under 25.00 with soup bread and butter choice of potatoe a friendly staff atmosphere just like the 60's were drink specials on tuesday 4-7 and thursdays 4-7 very fun crowd of people hang out at pitchs from the ages of 23 to 94 we aim to please just stop in say hi have a cocktail and a great dinner don't forget to say hi to the bartenders
Loaded Potato Skins Best Ever – Thursdays are great with $2.00 off all appetizers from 4-7. I can't say enough about their loaded potato skins. A meal in itself. Lake perch on Friday night is one of the best in town. Donna GE
Go elsewhere. – Based on the prior reviews I'd guess things have come downhill over the years. I never have to go back there again. The food is average (the rib sauce terrible), the service is slow, the prices above average for what you get. and the management/owner couldn't care less for customer feedback and comments. The are far too many restaurants out there to waste your time here.
Pitch's prices are way too high for what you get – Pitch's used to be very good. We visited a few nights ago and were disappointed by both the quality of the food and the high price. We ordered two rib sandwich plates (with fries) and two side salads with blue cheese dressing. Simple enough. Our bill was $31.10 before tip. That's about $15 per plate. The salads were not good and the bleu cheese dressing was a base as thick as cream cheese with the cheese crumbled on top and it just tasted odd. The sandwich was the usual (small) size and the fries were limp. Outrageous cost for a modest, mediocre dinner.
GREAT FOOD GREAT ATMOSPHERE GREAT STAFF – My boyfriend and I went here to celebrate my birthday and had a wonderful evening. The great thing about Pitch's is that it is in no way trendy--you go here because you want good (and a lot) of food at responible prices. We had a few cocktails, appetizers (the remaki with mustard dressing is fab), salads, and generous-sized entress for about $50.
The ribs are AMAZING (get them with hashbrowns!), seafood great (try the lobster-stuffed shrimp), and steaks are FANTASTIC (so juicy and tender). The decorations are ridiculously dated, but that is what gives this place its charm. I hope they never change the interior, or else it would just not be the same.
Highly recommend this place for people are are tired of $30 fru-fru meals at yuppie-trendy places with no character. There is a reason this place has been in business for so long--check it out!
Editorial Review by Christy Buena – Locals find the ribs and hash browns worth the trip at the brick restaurant that offers pasta dishes.
BBQ Ribs / Steaks Overrated – Aug 05
We ordered rib dinners, chicken sandwich and meatball sandwich. The salads iceberg lettuce was old, limp and tinged with brown edges, overall not very appetizing.
The world famous ribs were a great disappointment. My son captured the best description why not take them home, wash the sauce off then BBQ them without any sauce. The sauce was difficult to explain similar to an off-brand pasta or pizza sauce.
The meatball sandwich was OK, except that it lacked meatballs. The original order had two meatballs hidden in a normal size Italian bun. This was remedied by placing a side order of meatballs.
To complete the experience, the check arrived. Only then were we made aware that the diet colas that my wife and son were having refilled (due to the large amount of ice in each glass) were individually charged.
Overall we had a horrible experience!
Unreal food – The food is unreal, and it is a great value a steak and shrimp meal will run you 13-17$ and there is no way that you will leave hungry. The staff is amazingly friendly. The interior decorating could use some work, a little 70's super club style. But I would recommend this place to anyone!!!!
