The Timeless Pittsburgh Restaurant Everyone Needs To Visit At Least Once
Sit back and relax, for Pittsburgh’s most timeless restaurant has quite the story to tell. A fairy tale, if you will. Hyeholde Restaurant – just 20 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh, has been a staple in the Coraopolis community for more than 70 years. If any story deserves to start with once upon a time, it is certainly this one.
William Kryskill made his beloved wife, Clara, a promise back in the mid-1920s: One day, she would live within the walls of a castle he had built for her. But, the groom conveniently left out one rather important detail.
They would not hire builders. Rather , the Kryskills would build their dream themselves. And, thus they embarked on a seven year journey of building a fairy tale castle that would serve as both their home and a restaurant.
Today a historic landmark, as designated by the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation, Hyeholde Restaurant welcomed its first dinner guests in 1938, thus beginning a tradition that continues well into the 21st century.
Ownership of the charming restaurant changed hands in the 1980s but again passed back to the Kryskill family when the couple's daughter and son-in-law purchased the property in 1991.
Embrace a cozy, enchanting experience when you dine at Hyeholde Restaurant, which offers a traditional dinner menu as well as several unique options.
Opt for a seat at the Chef's Table, where you (and up to seven others) will sit amid the organized chaos of a busy kitchen as chefs feverishly prepare meals for the evening's guests. You'll interact with the chefs and have the unique opportunity to watch as they create scrumptious meals.
Or, take advantage of a beautiful summer evening with Hyeholde Restaurant's elegant picnic menu. Sit on a comfortable blanket on the lush grounds of the restaurant as you dine on such delectable dishes as prime filet, crab cake or chicken. All picnic entrees come with crispy homemade potato chips.
The traditional dinner menu features an array of delicious dishes, such as scallops, pistachio crusted elk, prime fillet, and braised lamb shoulder,
Cap off your meal with a chilled glass of wine and a delicious dessert. Peruse the menu that features such mouthwatering desserts as devil's food cake, toasted lemon meringue, and creme brulee.
Hyeholde Restaurant welcomes guests for dinner from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday and on Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Reservations are recommended but not required.
