Throw in a few hidden gems and a great American city and it's a roadtrip to steal any duffer's heart.
The prime restaurant for steaks and chops seared to perfection. It's got everything a great steakhouse should have, including a spectacular view of the cityscape. Perhaps best of all, it's part of the Station Square Sheraton, so you can savor all you want before waddling home.

The Pennsylvania Brewing Company
Prost! Pittsburgh’s Deutschtown section has been known for its homemade craft beers since 1848, and this authentic German brewery keeps the tradition going.

Church Brew Works
Craft beers and awesome food served in a centuries-old church. What else is there to say? This brewery took so much pride in their vision that they restored an old church, established in 1878, to be their home. Stop in for a tour and you’ll be greeted by warm smiles and cold beers.
