Dining Ohiopyle: Breaking it Down with Bean Burritos

Live music and livelier locals

Dining Ohiopyle’s melody draws you in as much as the food itself. The sound of rushing whitewater, the toot of a passing train whistle, the “yinz guys” dropping off locals’ tongues: the state park is as charming with its fauna as it is with its townees. I work up a sweat raising up rental bikes summer days in the park. After I clock out, I love dining Ohiopyle. I stroll down Garrett Street. Before the CSX train’s passed, I’m raising a frosty brew with my coworkers at the Pub.

Blessedly, Falls City Pub opens its doors year round. In the summer on Saturdays, it opens its sneaky garage-like Garrett Street wall. Local bands’ tunes waft into the crisp Ohiopyle evening air.

Our dance parties in the store prepared us for this particular night.

My group of dedicated dancers and I broke down the scene to Fern Cliff Collective. Fern Cliff keeps dancers on the edge of their dancing toes. Their music seamlessly flows from one song to the next. Clark’s shiny head gleams as he sings a foot-stirring rendition of “Boogie Shoes.” Jess strums away, nodding politely but probably not heeding my request for a Dolly or ABBA song. The harp player (and yoga sansei), Wade, rips a solo with one of his small army of harmonicas. The state park night breezes down to the sixties. The dance floor smolders, packed with boogying locals and visitors flaunting flannel and tie-dye.

Dining Ohiopyle: Are we human, or are we burrito?

What would that fine prancing be, though, without the Pub’s edible attractions. The Pub, as its name suggests, boasts a fine selection of microbrews. We are a hippy town, after all. And the food? Just thinking about the food makes me drool all over my keyboard as I write. The hot smells of the veggie, meaty, and starchy delights create their own chorus of “mmmm’s” throughout the restaurant. My personal dining Ohiopyle favorito is the black bean burrito. It’s pretty grande, but as a twenty-three-year-old woman, I need all that black bean protein to fuel my hours of dance.

Sweet, a list!

In sum, the Pub is:

  1. Satisfying American fare and frosty microbrews
  2. Live music on Saturdays, acoustic on Sundays, open mic on Fridays, and the thrill of competition with a pool table open any day of the week
  3. Located in the state park so you can unwind without leaving that magical, forested atmosphere

The whitewater thrills, the GAP enchants, and the fishing forms fond memories. Finish these Ohiopyle experiences with Ohiopyle dining. The fine food, tasty brews, and fun times at the Pub mean the end of your day won’t be the end of your adventure.


Your sister in dance,

Little Debbie

    admin quote Super juicy burger at a steal, friendly service, charming old market atmosphere, and a view of the Yough from my seat! I went to Falls Market at an odd time, about 2:30 in the afternoon, and it was nearly packed! As soon as I took a bite out of my Juicy Lucy Burger, I knew why! The burger burst with flavor--its delicious chipotle sauce lit up my tongue with little flames, soon cooled by the homemade slaw on top. The great tasting beef also had cheddar cheese, bacon, and your classic lettuce, tomato, and a dill spear on the side. All of that was just $5.95! My waitress was very friendly and prompt though the restaurant was busy. I didn't have room, but Falls Market was nearly wall-to-wall with ice cream flavors and other delicious desserts. I highly recommend Falls Market!

    Snackcakes quote The quality of the food matches the effort the owners have put into creating a mountain retreat style restaurant. I ordered the Mint Iced Tea and the Ruben. I could taste the fresh mint in the drink! Outstanding. The Ruben had crunchy bread piled high with delicious Corned Beef, a nice slice of Swiss Cheese, Thousand Island Dressing, and lots of Sauerkraut. The bread, people! Amazing! So many times it gets soggy if the meat isn't done properly, but the bread had a hugely satisfying crunch. Finished the meal with a lemon cupcake. I enjoyed it more than any cupcake I've gotten from cupcake places. The cake was very lemony, moist, and the icing was perfect: so creamy, not too sweet or too much. Loved the meal and the atmosphere.

    admin quote My Pork Barbecue with Coleslaw Sandwich got better with every bite. The pork was tender, a little sweet, and a few bites in I felt the heat of the spices. The coleslaw on top was the perfect relief from the barbecue heat. The slaw had a nice crunch--done just right, not too creamy, tasting very fresh like everything there, including the drinks! I got a fresh squeezed lemonade that was cool and sweet, nice on a hot summer's day. I finished my meal with an Apricot Cranberry Oatmeal Cookie. It was so soft on the inside with delicious apricot chunks. This cookie tasted like a lot of love went into it! Really enjoyable ambiance as well. It was easy to get to off of 381, but it felt like a romantic woodsy retreat with beautiful furnishings, decorations, and plants. I highly recommend Bittersweet Café!
