About Us

What is Juniper Grill?

Juniper Grill was established on the principles of creating a cozy, yet modern, atmosphere. Our menu was developed from the idea of serving Cowboy Cuisine, a wide variety of American cuisine with a southwest flair! Our Chefs prepare everything from scratch using only the best products available.

We major in fresh squeezed juice margaritas, sipping tequilas and craft beers. Our extensive wine list features 47 wines by the bottle and over 30 wines by the glass.

Did we mention decor and outdoor patio?

Our atmosphere is casual and comfortable. Step inside and you're stepping into a lodge placed right in the heart of Pittsburgh. The smell of the wood-fired grill will welcome you at the door. Every night of the year, you can enjoy our sunset on our Four-season patio, warm in the winter and cool in the summer, with two lounges for apps and drinks, you can't go wrong.

Juniper Grill

Juniper Grill Restaurant is the latest creation by Pat McDonnell. After years of research and hands on experience, he was driven to develop "something new" for the restaurant industry and began to formulate what is now known as Juniper Grill - a quality restaurant that is distinctively different with a contemporary feel and food upholding the standards and culture celebrated by Restaurant Holdings.

Pat reached out to friends within the industry who immediately captured the vision, embraced the concept and shared in his enthusiasm to create something new.
