The Gandy Dancer in Pittsburgh is a premier saloon attached to The Grand Concourse Restaurant. Both are situated in the former Train Station
of the the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad (P&LE) was first chartered and in 1877 with a rail line connecting Pittsburgh to Youngstown. In 1879, the P&LE officially opened for commercial traffic and later became known as the Little Giant for the amount of tonnage that it moved. In 1976, the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation developed the site as a mixed-use historic adaptive reuse development and the train station was converted.
They serve wonderful food and cocktails in an atmosphere that takes you back to another era. The trains still run along the river and the restaurant offers a view of Pittsburgh across the Monongahela River.
