Success! Thanks for posting your review of Church Brew Works & Restaurant. You’ve done the world some good today.

Good food, mediocre beer

During our visit, I had the beer sampler and the meatloaf. In my opinion, the beer was only mediocre. Insufficiently carbonated, for starters, but there was just a quality to the beer that I didn't care for. However, the meatloaf that I had was incredible, as was the ambiance. I'd be willing to recommend this to others, as well as return myself. I just won't be as adventurous with the brew.

cinco fromaggio pizza is the best

I organized a series of events, posted on two social websites, in which I led a group of people to 27 different pizza parlors in the greater Pittsburgh area, searching for the best pies that Western PA has to offer. My single favorite was the Cinco Fromaggio (five cheese) from Church Brew Works, but it was the only pizza there that I would even recommend. However, my overall favorite shop was Upper Crust on Dorseyvil... view more

Great happy hour in a unique setting

The Church is always a good time when i can make it there. I go there for happy hour, when they have really cheap appetizers and beer. I have always liked the food and beer, though as a disclaimer, I have never ordered an entree there.\r \r Service is usually good (slow occasionally), and the parking situation is outstanding for being in the city.\r \r The atmosphere alone is worth at least one trip. It is litera... view more

dunkel with pizza - great combo

the only food I order here is the mushroom pizza - it's made fresh in a brick oven and tastes very good. I love the in-house brewed beer too. love the dunkel.

Beautiful Setting, Lousy Food

We had wanted to visit this establishment for awhile and finely was able. Parking in the rear was great, the stained glass windows were stunning but the decor was over all very dingy. We ordered appe., entree and drinks. Never got the appe, buffalo meatloaf had no flavor, pasta was chewy. Beer was good. Service was not very good. Nice young lady but must have been her first job as a waitress. Clean up the p... view more

not the best microbrew

Hadn't been to the Church Brew in many years...but after sampling ""the sampler"", I remembered why I never went back! The beer was not to our liking at all. It all tasted very smoky. We had friends in from out of town and visited a couple of micro breweries while they were here. Penn Brewery was excellent, as was the Rock Bottom. None of us liked any of the beer we tried here and there were varied pallets in t... view more

Good food, fun atmosphere, awful service

Went there on a Friday evening with a large party, fortunately we had reservations so we were seated promptly. It was crowded and noisy, but one must expect noise with the acoustics of an old church. The atmosphere is cheerful and the stained glass windows are beautiful. A little back lighting would be wonderful so that the stained glass could be enjoyed after dark.\r The food was excellent. Well prepared and more t... view more

Brewpub in a restored old church is unique.

This place is worth the visit just to see the way it was converted to a brewpub from an old church.\r It had been a few years since our last visit and I must say the beer has improved substantially.\r Excellent beer to be found here, on par with Penn Brewery. On the downside, the food is mediocre at best. Had the pierogies which were dry and overcooked. Also had the Kobe steak sandwich which contains very little be... view more

Great pizza.

I dined here last night with my boyfriend. Upon arriving we were told there was a wait for the dining room. We could clearly see there were many open seats. The hostess explained that they were understaffed. Ok. We tried to seat ourselves in the pub and jostled with other diners and happy hour-ers for a seat. At this point we decided to forgo entrees and have side salads, pizza, and beer. Although service continued t... view more

I absolutely cannot believe the service that we received at this restaurant. I find that the idea of changing a church into a restaurant is wonderful and am glad that it has happened here in Pittsburgh. But, to the point, when my companions and I dined here, we were more than appalled at our service. No lie, the wait staff did not check on us for more than 45 minutes & it was not busy in the least. Is this possib... view more
