SUMMER IS HERE! RIVERS CASINO PITTSBURGH DEBUTS DINING ALFRESCO
Casual and fine dining riverfront restaurant patios now open

PITTSBURGH — June 21, 2023 — An outdoor Pittsburgh Cobb Salad on a sunny day with views of the Ohio River and Mt. Washington? Yes, please. Summer breeze and Lobster Francaise while overlooking the North Shore? Yo, cuz! I’m in.

June 21 marks the first day of summer and the award-winning food and beverage team at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh heads outside. Two of the casino’s most popular restaurants — Wheelhouse Bar & Grill and Martorano’s Prime — both offer outdoor riverside patio dining.

Finer Fare: Martorano’s Prime

Reservations are recommended for Martorano’s Prime, the Italian-American Steakhouse concept by celebrity cook Steve Martorano. Gourmet magazine called Martorano’s meatballs “the best in the world.” Enjoy them with a salad starter or main course a balmy summer night with an Eggplant Stack and refreshing craft cocktails.

New menu items have recently been added at Martorano’s Prime. The lineup now includes stuffed banana peppers, Shrimp Fra Diavolo and Rigatoni & Meatball. Add one of the popular steak enhancements, such as Sinatra Style or Martorano Style to any prime steak dish.

The Martorano’s Prime patio at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh features intimate tables for two, dining with friends for four, plus accommodations for larger groups.

Following the success of Martorano’s Prime at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh, a second location for Martorano’s Prime, at Rivers Casino Philadelphia, is expected to open later this year.

Cookbooks by South Philly’s culinary star Steve Martorano, “Yo Cuz! My Life My Food My Way” and “It Ain’t Sauce, It’s Gravy,” are available from Amazon. Martorano’s Café in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, is a 30-plus-year dining institution with locals and celebrity visitors alike.

Keep it Casual: Wheelhouse Bar & Grill

You had me at Loaded Wheelhouse Fries … cheese sauce, chili, sour cream and scallions.

Rivers Casino’s ever-popular Wheelhouse menu has been curated for the discerning Pittsburgh palate since opening in 2009. That means Polish Hill Nachos, Italian Wedding Soup, Pittsburgh Cheesesteak and a Colossal Fish Sandwich. Don’t forget about summer beverages … boozy buckets this summer are $12 and include specialties like Pineapple Express (Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum, Banana Rum, peach schnapps, orange juice and pineapple juice), Boozy Banana (Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum, pineapple juice, pina colada mix, orange juice), and Welcome To The Fishbowl (Blue Chair Bay Coconut Rum, White Rum, Blue Curacao, Sweet and Sour, pineapple juice, lemon-lime soda).

With high-def screens throughout, not only is Wheelhouse a great place to watch the Pirates this summer, but also “on deck” — outdoor dining is now open.

“Now that summer is here, the casino’s restaurants on the shoreline side of the property expand our dining rooms and go outside,” said Andrea Kleinrock-Marmion, vice president of food and beverage at Rivers Casino Pittsburgh. “It’s a great opportunity to take advantage of our waterfront location and enjoy the Pittsburgh skyline.”
