Bike Instead: Restaurants on PGH Bike Trails

The Three Rivers Heritage Trail runs in and all-around Pittsburgh, and it’s surrounding neighborhoods. There are so many great restaurants along the way.

Pittsburgh is known for its bike trails and accessibility in and around the city. The bike lanes and trails can lead you to many places, including all the way to Washington D.C.! But you don’t have to travel far to get to a delicious Pittsburgh restaurant on two-wheels. Save some gas and help the environment next time you're on the hunt for some Pittsburgh food.

On the Route to Millvale?

Hop on this trial from anywhere in the north shore, and you’ll head towards Redfin Blues on Washington’s Landing. This seafood restaurant set on the riverfront will make you think you’ve left Pittsburgh for a beach town vacation. Redfin Blues is right on the trail, so you don’t ever have to bike on the road to get there. There are plenty of bike racks available to lock up your ride while you eat on the huge deck overlooking the river.

Headed Towards The North Shore?

If you’re headed the other direction over to the North Side, you’ll pass many restaurants right on the shore. Southern Tier, Tequilla Cowboy, and Grille 36 are just a few that are on the trail. You can park your bike by the water while you grab some food and enjoy the view of it Point. If you’re lucky, it might be game day at one of the arenas. But if not, there's always something new to find on the North Shore.

Going Down to South Side?

The trail will take you right through the South Side Works with plenty of restaurant options. Hofbrauhaus Pittsburgh is directly on the trail, and a perfect pit stop on your way. A little further down the path, you’ll make your way to Pittsburgh’s historic ice cream shop Page's Dairy Mart, one of our favorite ice cream shops. There isn’t anything better than a cold cone to break up your long bike ride.

Taking a Stop at Station Square? 

You can also head over to Station Square on the Heritage trail. Here, you can stop in Pittsburgh’s classic Grand Concourse and Gandy Dancer, or opt for the Hard Rock Cafe to fuel up. 

No matter what direction you head in on the Three Rivers Heritage Trail, you will be on your way to delicious food all around Pittsburgh. Skip the parking payment next time you’re in the mood for some Pittsburgh food and bike instead!
