The Pines Tavern as been attracting hungry patrons since 1914 and was 'originally the gathering place for the workers of the three great estates of Pittsburgh's industrial captains'.

We've always thought of The Pines Tavern as a special occasion place. Perhaps meeting there for a birthday, anniversary or for a rehearsal dinner, as we did for our son and his future wife. It has also been a great place to meet friends in order to catch up on things, which is what we did a couple days ago while visiting Pennsylvania.

The Pines feels like a country inn or hotel with traditional patterned wall paper on the walls and period furnishings to complete the look. We were led to a small nook overlooking the outdoor dining area, where a table for four was located (opening pic).

Unfortunately, the door leading to the outdoor area had to be accessed by our table so there was quite a bit of traffic as we conversed. Nevertheless, it was wonderful to see Becky and Wade and the dinner was superb just as we remembered it to be!

I selected a succulent filet mignon, with crisp sliced baked potatoes and tender asparagus tasting like it was freshly plucked from the field.

A sampling or 'flight' of white wines can be purchased to accompany the meal if so desired. We shared an upside down pineapple carrot cake for dessert--a somewhat exotic end to our dinner!
