One of the best-rated restaurants in Pittsburgh, Benkovitz Seafoods offers a relaxed atmosphere with a fresh menu that features sandwiches. It's a culinary destination for visitors looking for great food.
Defined by its outdoor seating, the restaurant is a fantastic option when the Western-PA weather is cooperative.

In fact, you should be able to enjoy a good meal for $11 or $12, and can probably get in and out for $8 if you try.
Most local parents will tell you that it's a good place to bring the kids, as well. If you need food provided for a local event, take advantage of its catering options. Or, if you just want to stop by for a beverage, the restaurant has a good selection at its bar.
