Stacy and I went to Lawrenceville last night to catch some music and decided to stop at Nied's Hotel on Butler street. Nied's has been a landmark for many years, and it's been so many years since I've been there that I couldn't even remember which door served the restaurant and which one went to the bar. We chose the right one, and had a great view of the band (Jimmy Alder Blues Band) from our seats at the bar.
I was hungry and couldn't resist the fish sandwich which is the house specialty. So typical of Pittsburgh fish, it was great! Pretty big too.
The menu was interesting with notable choices in addition to the fish such as Fried Jumbo, Pierogies, and Braunschweiger on Rye. All at rock bottom prices. This really is a great local restaurant and bar. A few years ago, the Pittsburgh Post Gazette called Nied's "Perhaps the most perfect neighborhood bar in a city full of 'em".
Nied's is right on Butler Street in the Lawrenceville section of Pittsburgh.
