This is your classic 'hometown corner bar' that comes with it's own cast of characters - yinzers all. Smoky and lively in front, pool table and juke box playing in the back. Hung out with the owner and had shots after a Pirates game. Southside's...More

Southside is pretty much where the part is at in Pittsburgh. With that being said, Jack's is a breath of fresh air. Cheap drinks, laid back and no frills. Nice change from the more clubby bars on the strip. You'd be hard pressed to find...More

Don't be afraid to wonder around in Jack's. There is another bar through the hallway by the bar. Bartenders were very functional, though not exceptional. It's not fancy, but it was fun and definitely would go back.

There's nothing fancy about Jack's, but it's a long time Southside drinkery that has just about anything you want. We stopped in for a drink around 8:30am on a Saturday before heading over to Heinz Field to tailgate. Staff were friendly and accommodating.
