We were staying at the next-door Marriott and came here for dinner at the advice of the desk clerk there. It was right next to the hotel parking lot so was an easy walk. The atmosphere is quiet, relaxing, and sort of upscale, with well spaced tables. We were delighted to find that wines on Saturday nights are 40% off!... More

The food was delicious, the service was also very good. A little pricey, but expected for the nice quiet atmosphere and they didn't rush us and let us enjoy the evening.

Invitation said 12120 State Route 30, Irwin, Pa. Located at the end of a mall sort of behind a McDonald's . We were in a party room with lovely decor. Had appetizers of grilled chicken satay and shrimp stuffed with crab meat as well as a large fruit and cheese platter with olives and salami with crackers. Dinner was encrusted... More

I really expected more based on the reviews. Nice looking place, service was fine but that is really, where it stopped. Two glasses of wine, shrimp appetizer and lamb chops for $80.00. In all fairness the lamb was cooked perfectly but rather tasteless. I am sure that Pittsburg has better to offer.

Went here for dinner. The ambiance was great. The food was wonderful! The service unfortunately was lacking. The server had mixed up my dish and we had to go and find her to have it corrected and also wait to get our check in which nothing was taken off the bill due to the mistake. No dessert or drink was... More

To Whom it may concern: I want to truly apologize for the service you receive at The Wooden Nickel Restaurant on you last visit. I'm assuming it was the Monroeville location? We do value each and every one of our customers and our goal it to have our guests leave happier than they arrive. We would like to invite you... More

this place is a few blocks off the main drag in monroeville PA. Had to use GPS to pinpoint it, as access seems to be via a driveway (Berger Lane) at a Petco store. But, tucked in away from traffic, it was a nice, quiet place. Service was prompt, courteous, professional. Pricing seemed reasonable, and the menu was far better... More

Have been there many times and have never been disappointed with the food. Excellent wait staff also, my high school friends and I meet there quite frequently. Everyone enjoys their meal and they don't rush us, something we truly appreciate. Quality food in a nice quite atmosphere, we're never disappointed.

We grabbed dinner after work and sat at the bar. Overall the atmosphere is nice and I much prefer the dining area to the bar area. The bartender was nice but I think overwhelmed as it took a while to get menus and drinks. There were several errors in both drink and food items for us and the person sitting... More

The Wooden Nickel has a beautiful interior,delicious food, and amazing service. I was so impressed with previous visits here, that I had my daughters bridal shower here this month. It was out of this world,and all the guests complimented everything. It was a very happy day for my daughter, and She enjoyed every minute as well. Absolutely love this place.

Came here with another couple for dinner while in the area. Tucked away behind the hotel, it was a nice find. The restaurant is clean inside and the food is excellent.
