i went in with a friend. the waitress brought us menus and got us drinks.. but she never returned to take our order. we sat there for 20 minutes. a party that came in after us and sat RIGHT next to us got their food before our order was even taken. the waitress, a young blonde... thing... had the nerve to stand by the kitchen with her arms crossed as if she had nothing to do..

we left 5 bucks on the table for drinks and walked out.. i'm never going back

This small restaurant located in Bellvue is pretty good. A nice sized menu with steaks, sandwiches, pasta dishes, some chicken, seafood, and nice sized salads. I can't say I have a favorite dish here yet. Each time I go I try something different. And that's because they have daily specials (and they have numerous selections to choose from).
All the dishes they serve are very generous portions (even from the breakfast menu) and I never leave without a doggy bag! And when they serve you drinks, the cups are huge, you never have to get a refill! The only downfall to this restaurant is it's size. Incredibley small. They've been there 25 years I think? Too bad they haven't been able to expand, it's quite crowded most of the times, the tables are very close together, but the atmosphere is still pretty nice. Give it a try if you're in the neighborhood!

This is a small resturant in the North Boros of Pittsburgh. The food here is wonderful, I would highly recomend stopping in for breakfast but make sure you get there early this little resturant gets packed with people.

Horribly greasy food. I ordered what was supposed to be a "grilled chicken breast" according to the menu. It was the healthiest looking thing on the menu, so I thought I'd take the safe route. Everything else on there chicken-wise was listed as "breaded and fried." Well, the "grilled" apparently means "breaded and fried with extra butter." What I got was a pile of fried chicken covered in cheese and two strips of bacon; the oil oozed out of the breast when i cut into it and left a greasy mess on my plate. The waitress said that the owner had made a mistake when he wrote "grilled." They took $5 off of the meal, but really should have wrote the whole thing off. I barely touched it. Oh, and their "buttered carrots" were dry and shriveled (obviously microwaved." My partner's meal of crabcake (on top of breaded and fried chicken breast) tasted "funny" according to him. I got stomach issues immediately after getting home. Please... save yourself the trouble unless you have a cast iron stomach and a death wish.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: You get what you pay for...even hours later.

The shame is that this place can be listed on a breakfast website (city guide aol com /pittsburgh/bestbreakfast) as one of the best. It is clearly an average to middling establishment. Everything is standard and unoffensive. I will say that our waitress completely forgot about us in between bites of her own breakfast sandwich. The ham was real good. But overall nothing extraordinary. My partner says, flatulently, "it was alright."

I've visited the Rusty Nail on various occasions. There are two (2) issues that stand out that make this restaurant an unenjoyable experience. The place is so small that the tables are crowed together that you bump into the persons that are sitting beside you at another table. You literally can't be comfortable. Because of this, the noise is so loud and you can't help from listening to the conversations around you. The waitresses are not friendly at all! They all seem to be angry, mainly because they have to work in a hostile environment. I wouldn't recommend the restaurant if you want to come in and enjoy your meal in peace. If you don't have a headache coming into the restaurant, you will have one when you leave.

One of the previous reviewers complained about the smoke. Well, it's gone and the crowds are still here. So is all the great food and generous portions. My wife and I go there more frequently now that the air is clear of smoke.

The omelettes are the best in town! Get there early on a weekend day. Just be prepared to take a nap after this meal!

There's a reason there is a line out on the sidewalk every Saturday and Sunday morning. Their "anytime" breakfast is possibly the best in the city. Worth every second of the wait on a weekend morning.

They have recently enforced a strict ban on smoking in this establishement now so previous reviews regarding the smoke can be disregarded...no one smokes. Highly recommended is the Chicken Salad, any of the devonshire's, and the chicken fingers - and for breakfast get the french toast combo, with pan fried hash-browns!! All the portions are enormous and you will definitely have a doggie-bag to take home.

Smokey air filled the way as we tried to choke down our food. Tables too close to each other and had to walk through the kitchen to go to the john

If you want a lot of food for a reasonable price I would recommended eating at the Rusty Nail. Both the food and the service is excellent. I have never had a bad meal there.
