Best Food! – Love love love there food. Every time I go its always amazing. I got there for breakfast and dinner at least once a week. Best place in Shadyside for a good meal. And they have very good cocktails. There new location on walnut is so much better than there old location which was on Ellsworth. BEST PLACE EVER!

Best Bar/food/atmosphere in Pittsburgh – The Elbow room is a great place to chill with friends. Above the fray of Bustling Walnut street, the Patio is an intimate place to enjoy the great menu Josh Smith has put together at this eatery. The atmosphere is very warm the staff is always smiling and the service is strange...5 star service with a casual menu - dominated by great salads and killer burgers. Atracts a great crowd of fun loving folks yet kids of all ages are present. P.S. Great Value!

Value and Satisfied Experience – This place has a good bar along with ample seating. The menu offers traditional American mixed with some specials like Mahi Mahi and Seared Tuna. Meunu prices equal are a good value. Steak, salad, sweet potato for $24. Cooked to perfection. Street parking only but probably the best value American food menu in Shadyside.

Great Wine Selection!!!! Huge Pour. – The Elbow Room has a great wine selection by the glass and serves a huge pour. Probably 20 - 25 choices by the glass. Service is super friendly and they have a great outdoor patio.

Great Neighborhood Bar & Restaurant!!!!!!!

nice patio – Nice, cozy outdoor patio Mixed drinks were weak, and the fried calamari greasy - oil in the fryer likely wasn't hot enough. Love the ambiance though. Next time I'll sit inside. Head's up - they allow smoking inside so if you're sensitive may not be the best place.

American fare and plenty of fun food keep everyone happy. – In Short
The Elbow Room has created a family-style pub that attracts a somewhat more upscale Shadyside crowd with its outdoor seating, drink specials and exotic menu. Instead of traditional burgers, clubs and standard entrees, the kitchen serves specialty salads and sandwiches like the grilled eggplant, spicy chicken salad and Muenster tuna melt. There's also a kids' menu replete with skinless hot dogs, penne with marinara or butter and more.

Best Burger and Patio in the Burgh – I recently discovered The Elbow Room this past summer and have visited several times since. It easily has the best burger in Pittsburgh--thick and juicy, but not at all greasy--served with "Potato Patch" style French fries. Their chocolate cheesecake was probably the richest and best dessert Ive ever had. The outdoor patio in the rear is very quaint and romantic and possesses a European feel. It is perfect for dinner with your date or drinks with the friends. I was shocked to read other reviews touting The Elbow Room as kid friendly as I never encountered anything but a relaxed, young professional-type atmosphere the evenings I dined here. A new favorite and highly recommended.

Consistently Good! – I've been going to the Elbow Room for 15 years or so and the food and service have always been great. It's casual, inexpensive and really, really good. They also have a great courtyard for eating outside without feeling like you're in the middle of a city street.

Jostling elbows for decades! – I remember seeing one of the first shows of a new band, Rusted Root, here. For years the Elbow Room has offered great selections of everything from jazz to rock, as well as an enticing menu and a wonderful bar.
