Mount Washington Restaurants With Great Food And An Even Better View!

A Story By

Mount Washington is one of the most beautiful places Pittsburgh has to offer, where a steep incline can take you up a mountain to view the city’s skyline in all its glory. At the top, viewers are can see a panoramic view, including Fort Pitt Bridge shimmering like gold when the sun shines just right. Poetic and romantic as the view is, the food on top of the hill will have you coming back more and more. You wouldn’t skip the view, and nor should you skip these top Mount Washington restaurants.

Altius is one of Mount Washington’s top-of-the-line places to eat, a fine-dining dream, and a skyline view to top it off. With its refined and ingredient-driven menu of contemporary, American cuisine, no wonder it was rated four-diamonds by AAA. Its elevation and connection to Mount Washington are inseparable. Altius in Latin even means higher, and if the Damn Yankees had written “High Enough” about a restaurant, it would’ve been Altius. So make sure to take a pretty high ride, drink them dry, and don’t miss the gorgeous skyline.
