Top 14 Neighborhood Amenities in Greenfield, Pittsburgh, PA

Greenfield is a neighborhood that was formed on land purchased in 1759. It is a nice quiet neighborhood, close enough to what Pittsburgh has to offer. The neighborhood is populated by friendly people, mostly families with children. All things considered Greenfield is a great place to live in. Let me show you around the neighborhood with this guide.

Hough's

Hough's is a great place to go for a drink in the neighborhood. They have one of the most extensive selection of beers in the city with about 60 of them on tap. If you feel lost about which one to choose you can always get to taste some of them in smaller glasses before settling for one you like. The food is nothing special, just the usual pub grub. The service is good and the atmosphere is great, there are also TVs for sports. Sometimes during games it gets really crowded, but it is totally worth it.

Big Jim's

Big Jim's is a restaurant and bar that offers great American and Italian food. It is often quite full, and due to the small number of employees you may have to wait some more time for your food, but it's worth the extra wait. The food is absolutely delicious and comes in very large portions, at a surprisingly low price. It is a good idea to share at this restaurant because there's no way that you are going to be able to eat their huge portions all by yourself, so come with friends or family for a nice dinner that will literally make you feel full.

Conicella Pizza

Conicella Pizza offers one of the best pizza in the neighborhood and in the city. The place is small with no sitting, but they deliver or you can take your pizza yourself. They don't have much of a menu, however anything you may order will most certainly be very good. After eating their food once you will most likely come for more. Just remember they only take cash, but if you are already there, there's an ATM across the street, so don't worry.

Copper Kettle Brewing Company

As the name suggests it Copper Kettle Brewing Company is a brewery, but not any brewery. Here you can brew your own beer. You can choose from a great variety of beers to brew, or if you don't know all that much about brewing, just tell the staff what would you like to get, and they will help you with the ingredients. The entire process takes around 2 to 3 hours, where you mostly have to wait so it is a good idea to grab a beer and some food at Hough's in the same building. After you're done brewing you have to plan for a second visit after 2 weeks for bottling your beer. You also get to design the label to put on the bottles. This is a very fun activity which I recommend to everyone.

Giant Eagle offers a variety of fresh produce, packaged foods, meats and others. The prices for some products may be a little higher than usual, but if you are pressed for time or do not wish to drive outside the neighborhood this is a good place to shop for your groceries.
