    Default Ditka's Place

    Any of you guys gone to Ditka's place in Robinson Twp ? I've driven by many of times during working hours but, I've never went in.
    What's it like ?

    I'm with ya, I've gone past it s many times, I never go in and eat. Everytime I'm at Robinson I usually stop elsewhere. It's been on my list of to do things as far as eating/restaurants up there. Stopped at the new Red Robin a few weeks back after stopping in at Barnes and Noble

    I was there once.

    It's nice. Actually it's nicer than I thought it would be. It's done more like an upscale restaurant/bar than a sportsbar. Kinda pricey.

    I had the filet I believe.

    I saw Bob Pompeani there, so that's an added bonus.

    I'm going to need to make a point of stopping into that place. I have to go to clopay doors and knickerbockers pretty soon or at least within the next 2 or 3 weeks so, I'll give it a shot.

    I've seen Pompeani a few times up in Robinson too. He lives in the area somewhere. i wanna say Hopewell but I think that perhaps he has family from there.

    What the hell used to be where Ditka's was. I'm trying to remember if it was a Red Lobster at one point before they built their own building?

    It was Red Lobster first. Red Lobster built a new building in the lower plaza. Is it Crabby Joe's or Banna Joe's ?

    I am usually worried about the prices. Looks pretty high end.

    It has to be a special occasion for me to spend that much. Can't just "stop by".

    Related note I checked Bettis's menu, it's not that bad. I might check it out come b-day time. Wherever I go it has to have an extensive beer list preferentially on tap and they do.

    Bettis's menu is pretty reasonable IMO... Been there a few times when I've been to downtown Pgh... I was never disappointed.
