For the person who has everything, gift cards to The Porch will make for a relaxing night out on the town!

Cracklin' Pork Shank

For a meal to enjoy on a chilly fall night in Oakland, look no further than our Cracklin' Pork Shank. This dish features seasonal ingredients such as sauerkraut bacon mashed potatoes, poached apples, and Serrano applesauce. We recommend pairing it with a glass of Boxhead Shiraz.

Rooftop Bee Hives

Did you know that our rooftop has 4 bee hives containing 400,000 honey bees?! Our bees produce about 120 pounds of honey each year that we use in many of our specials. This past summer, we even partnered with Millie's Homemade Ice Cream to create an exclusive flavor that used our own honey! It was called Chocolate Bee Hive and was only available here at The Porch!

Hand-Crafted Cocktails

We like to use the fresh ingredients grown in our garden whenever possible, including in our hand-crafted cocktails. Throughout the year, you can find a variety of homegrown herbs and spices on our beverage menu including rosemary, thyme, and mint - just to name a few!

Looking for the perfect place to host your special event?

Whether you're hosting 20 or 220 people, we're here to make it a memorable experience. We provide catering at the nearby Schenley Park Café and Visitor Center, or you can book our restaurant for a private rental.

Receive a $10 Bonus Card for every $50 in gift cards purchased!

A gift for them and a treat for you! From now through December 31, when you buy $50 in gift cards in our restaurant, you’ll receive a $10 bonus card for yourself. Bonus cards can be redeemed from January 2 to January 31 and are a perfect way to enjoy some post-holiday relaxation.

At the porch, we believe
in food done right

Our menu is an eclectic mix of the familiar & surprising…creative new recipes as well as classics with a twist.


that means LOCAL & fresh with
a little help from our friends

By teaming up with partners like Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance, Wild Purveyors and others, we’re able to build our menu around seasonal, local ingredients.



We keep an annual garden on our rooftop, so that we can use fresh-picked herbs and produce in our kitchen everyday. It’s also home to several beehives, which means honey is never in short supply.

What's New

food makes happy people

Pause and reconnect with friends over a scratch-made meal and a drink on our porch. With the best outdoor dining in Pittsburgh, the views are nearly as good as the food.
