At 142 years old, The Original Oyster House is Pittsburgh’s oldest bar and restaurant. Located in the heart of Market Square, the unique tavern has been designated a historic landmark by the Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Foundation.
When The Original Oyster House first opened in 1870, oysters sold for a penny and beer was 10 cents a glass. The enormous fish sandwiches, which require a special bun, were introduced by “Silver Dollar Louie,” Louis Americus, proprietor from 1916 to 1970. The specialty coating on the fish and oysters, a recipe of Mrs. Americus, is still used by the kitchen staff.
