by Beth Price-Williams The One-Of-A-Kind Monterey Bay Fish Grotto Just Might Have The Most Scenic Views In All Of Pittsburgh
We can all probably whole-heartedly agree that Pittsburgh boasts some of the
best views in the entire country. From driving out of the Fort Pitt Tunnel to strolling around the North Shore’s riverwalk, we have so many ways to admire those views. One of the best views in Pittsburgh, of course, is from atop Mount Washington. Pair those sensational views with a delicious meal at Monterey Bay Fish Grotto.
Perched high atop Mount Washington, Monterey Bay Fish Grotto is known for its scrumptious seafood selection
and its breathtaking views of the city skyline.
Floor to ceiling windows boast 360-degree views of the city, picture-perfect in the golden sunlight and...
...as the city glistens against a darkened sky. There's not a bad seat in the restaurant.
Private and group seating are also available. Monterey Bay also offers online ordering and curbside pickup.
A longtime Pittsburgh favorite, Monterey Bay Fish Grotto earns glowing reviews from diners - many of whom give it props as the city's best restaurant. You'll probably want to judge for yourself, though.
You might find it hard to tear your eyes away from those views, but the food offers a pretty good incentive. How about starting with a helping of fried green tomatoes?
Seafood's the main attraction at Monterey Bay Fish Grotto. From crab cakes to fresh fish, including salmon and swordfish, the menu offers something for everyone.
If you're not in a seafood kind of mood, cut into the filet mignon or the Wagyu ribeye.
If you're bringing the kids along, they have their own menu of favorites, including filet mignon and grilled cheese.
Pair your main dish with one of the shareable sides - mac and cheese or truffles frites, for example.
Can you think of a better way to end a delicious meal than with a decadent dessert? Banana bread pudding and triple chocolate delight (with devil's food cake) are among your choices.
