Beer Quality Beer Selection Food Service Overall
Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
I've been visiting Bocktown monthly for nearly a year now, and I have never been disappointed. Its only downside is the location which keeps it from being prominently displayed for everyone to find. The food, service, and obviously beer are all excellent and will keep my coming back as long as I visit the Pittsburgh area.

Obviously, the first part has to be about the beer. While they have a large and well-stocked beer cooler for bottled beer, the stars are the taps, of which there are 15 or so. ALL of the beers on tap are quality ones -- no Miller Lite or garbage like that. Go find a Chili's or some place like that if you want to drink that swill. Their tap beers are typically sourced from somewhat local breweries, anywhere from Cleveland to Harrisburg though occasionally from farther afield. They always maintain a range of different types of beers with red ales, pale ales, lagers, stouts/porters, and stronger sorts (barley wine, triple bock) all fairly represented. If there's a type of beer you like, you'll probably find it on tap at any given time. Also, once the current keg is finished, they swap out that beer for something else so the selection is always changing. Fortunately, if you find one that you like, they are likely to have it in bottles. The staff knows their beers, too, and can provide good advice on what to try if you're unsure. And, they'll give you a taste (1/2 of a shot) for free, or you can buy a sample to get a better idea.

On Thursdays, if I recall correctly, they have an infusion beer where they run a brew through this contraption that infuses (surprise!) the beer with certain flavors, like orange or spices. Further, on Wednesdays, they'll be visited by a brewery who will provide free samples of various beers that are often featured on the taps.

As for the food, if it weren't as good as it is, I probably would venture to other places for beer at some point. All of their food ingredients are sourced from local vendors and are definitely excellent quality. Their normal menu items are great, with huge burgers, terrific fries, and some fantastic sandwiches and entrees (including several outstanding salads for healthier selections). However, they also have an array of specials that change daily which are typically very good. Honestly, I have never been disappointed with anything I have ordered there except for the ravioli, which I wouldn't recommend (not bad, just somewhat bland). Whoever the chef is, I hope he/she stays there!

I highly encourage you to check this place out. It's somewhat small, but they open up the patio at the end of May. Find the Target in Robinson and then look across the parking lot -- you won't be disappointed. And if you are, drink more beer, and you'll probably forget!

Awesome! Awesome! Great Awesome! Awesome!
Dropped in here midafternoon Sunday, we got a table right away. Place is hidden at the end of a strip of shops in the Target plaza of the massive Robinson Town Centre shopping city. More people need to make a point to find it.

The first thing that greets you as you come in the door is a row of coolers loaded with (they say; I didn't count) around 400 great beers in bottles. I gave that a once-over, most of your better beers were well represented. I noticed big bottles were 25% off Sundays, but I fell for the tap selection.

There isn't an overwhelming number of taps, around 15, but they and the cooler space were ALL dedicated to good beers, no mass-market crap.

One thing that's very cool they do here that no other non-brewpub beer bar I've been to does is let you buy 4-ounce samples of whatever's on tap, low test $1, high test (barleywines and such) $2.50. The menu suggested a three-IPA sampler for $3 (Clipper City, Ithaca Flower Power and something I forget), which being a hophead I happily ordered. Later on tried Victory Limited Lager, then switched to more potent stuff and tried Lagunitas Gnarleywine and Arcadia Big Dick's Olde Ale. I could have stayed all day. I hope the stupid new Allegheny County drink tax doesn't screw with this feature too badly.

Food was pretty good. Spouse was mooching off my cup of chili, and she's not a big chili fan. It was meaty and not too spicy. I had a chicken stack sammitch that was juicy and good even before I started using the spicy dip. Spouse loves her some reuben. She declared this one good, but not as excellent as at a similar beer bar a few miles down the highway in Collier. Daughter said she enjoyed her steak sandwich, declared it "very good." We all shared a plate of fries (good ones, looked hand-cut) with a little cheese (not globs) and bacon on them.

Daughter had key lime pie for dessert, the real thing, not the green stuff (her puckerface at the first taste was a big clue).

I didn't catch the server's name, sadly, but he was very prompt, food and beers were served in a very reasonable time. Decor is a little warmer and cozier than one might expect from a strip-mall place.

Planning on stopping in again Saturday, probably going to get the mystery beers six for $12.

This makes at least three excellent beer bars within a few miles of each other in the Parkway West/I-79 corridor, with Pgh. Bottleshop to the south and Sharp Edge to the north. So the best place to live in Pittsburgh is ... Carnegie?

Wow! I tripped over another winner! I was at Woodcraft picking up some supplies and BAM! there it was! The beer selection is among the best I've encountered , the food and service are among the best as well. I had the Bocktown board appetizer tray and it was very good.My wife had the bacon & beercheese fries, she said they were great. Our server was Kelly and she was knowledgeable and very helpful. I'll surely visit again soon.

This place is going to be a real winner !!!. The draft selection is about 15 well chosen beers. They seem to run through kegs very quickly so the selection is constantly changing and the food is fresh. They have a huge selection of bottles including a few that I have'nt seen in area bars (ie sam adams homebrew winners). The owner seems to know her beers. Good burgers, good fries, nice atmosphere. Very comfortable. The owner told us the nickname for the place was "man-dump", becuase lots of women go shopping at Robinson Town Center and "dump" their men at Bocktown.

everyone at bocktown was extremely helpful and friendly. the owner stopped to talk and has been in the industry many years, drinking good beer even longer. they had a walk-in cooler along the wall packed full... not a coors light in the house. i guess they searched for a place that served food and drink like they like and couldn't find it so they opened one. home-made salad dressing with pieces of veges was very tasty. no smoking inside but tables and trays outside. they should do well there.

comfortable is the best way to describe Bocktown. walk in and you feel like your back at your favorite pub. a knowledgable owner with a passion for beer and a staff that treats you like family. It is just plain fun.

Located at The Point in North Fayette Twp. (go left once off the Parkway, on the way to the Airport) Bocktown is located across the parking lot from Target and Pool City.

"The Beer Library" at Bocktown is something to behold. A giant 9 door cooler trimmed in mahaghony and chery wood, contains over 400 of the best beers of the world (with no fillers). Bocktown has focused on local and Pennsyvania brews including East End, Penn Brewery, Stouts, Victory, Erie, Troegs, and way to many others to mention.

The only thing that rivals the "Beer Library" at Bocktown is the food at Bocktown. Home cooked comfort food that brings back memories of your favorite neighborhood pub. Soups, sandwiches, and incredible daily specials, many made with beer(all under $10). Fresh cut fries smothered with "beer cheese" and peppered bacon is highly recommended.

If you enjoy great beer and great food in a warm comfortable atmosphere Bocktown is worth the trip.

It is a "destination spot", tucked away in the pool city plaza next to Target away from the hussel and bussel of The Point. It's not easy to find but most good spots aren't . Once your there once you won't forget how to find it....have a Beery nice day
