Prior’s Tavern is named for the historic inn that operated in the Brentwood-Whitehall area around 1850. The original “Prior’s White Hall Tavern” was situated on the Red Stone Road (Brownsville Road) that linked Pittsburgh with towns to the east and south. The original tavern was a log building with a hand-painted sign that read: “White Hall – Silas D. Prior, Proprietor.” Prior’s was the place where Pittsburghers on their way out of town stopped to change horses and have supper. This location is now the site of Slater’s Funeral Home.
Prior’s serves beer on tap and in the bottle; pitchers are popular for lane service. We feature a beer of the month, usually with special promotions. If you have a favorite beer that we don’t carry, let us know and we’ll do our best to have it when you come back.
Prior’s has a full menu of mixed drinks and cocktails, and stocks many popular wines. We also serve sodas, sparking water — and make fresh coffee all day!
Prior’s menu features traditional tavern fare with a “Burgh” twist, including hearty sandwiches, hoagies, pizza, soup, chili and a wide array of appetizers.
Customer favorites include our full-sized wings, huge chicken fingers and special hoagies. Bar patrons like our homemade chips, nachos, and mozzarella sticks. There is an extensive menu of burgers, sandwiches, soups, and salads – plus a daily lunch special and vegetarian options including our gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches.
Our cooks and bartenders are friendly and welcome suggestions and special requests. The wait staff is here to make sure your visit to Prior’s is fun and satisfying.
Prior’s caters large parties and welcomes schools, seniors and tour groups with reservations. We also do special orders and sit-down dinners by reservation.
