PITTSBURGH — Dec. 1, 2023 — Year-end visitors to Rivers Casino Pittsburgh will have several holiday gifts to unwrap, including a new coffee shop from the world’s premier roaster and retailer of specialty coffee.

On Monday, Dec. 4, a full-service Starbucks Coffee will debut at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. Starbucks offers handcrafted beverages, premium teas and delectable treats. High-quality arabica coffee is artfully roasted and brewed to unlock distinctive flavors, served one cup at a time.

Christmas Day Dining

Wheelhouse Bar & Grill — Celebrate Christmas Day with Rivers and join us at Wheelhouse from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. for a delectable three-course meal filled with festive food and Christmas classics.

Gorgeously seasoned Filet Tips to start will carry you into your main course of either Boursin Stuffed Chicken or Maple Glazed Ham Steak. Then for dessert enjoy Sugar Cookie Crème Brulee. Guests will be of good cheer indeed after a holiday dinner at Wheelhouse.

New Year’s Eve Dining

Wheelhouse Bar & Grill — Ring in 2024 with Wheelhouse’s delicious New Year’s Eve exclusive menu. Available options for main courses are as follows: Black & Blue NY Strip, Pot Roast Burger or Coconut Chicken. Then, for dessert, enjoy Wheelhouse’s tasty, signature Almond Tiramisu — the sweetest way to start 2024.

Martorano’s Prime — Start the new year famously with Steve Martorano’s Famous Meatball and Martorano’s Salad, Fried Calamari Bibzy or Fried Mozzarella. Entree choices include 8 oz. Filet Sinatra, Halibut Piccata, Chicken Marsala or Seafood Scampi Pasta. Sides at Martorano’s are almost a main event: Risotto, Mashed Potatoes or Roasted Brussels Sprouts. And New Year's Eve desserts are either Cheesecake, Red Velvet Cake or Cannoli Cake.

Remember, any New Year’s resolutions don’t apply until the next day.

Rising Jackpots in December

Record-Setting Pai Gow Progressive — Rivers Casino Pittsburgh is still on track to beat its own property record. The Pai Gow Progressive Jackpot is now at $1,280,373.73 (and still growing), officially exceeding the Rivers Poker Room’s $1,226,765.80 bad beat jackpot payout in August of 2022 — still the U.S. bad beat jackpot record. Pai Gow Poker uses playing cards instead of traditional Pai Gow Chinese dominoes. It features head-to-head play against the dealer and an optional bonus bet that triggers the jackpot.
