Good Friday – March 30, 2018
(Bar Service Uninterrupted)


In 1906, my Grandfather established Mitchell’s Dining Room on the corner of Washington and Wiley. Through 114 continuous years and 3 generations, Mitchell’s has served Downtown Pittsburgh good, home cooked lunches, with fast and friendly service, at a reasonable price.

I came into the business to work with my Pop in 1980 and have opened these doors every morning for 38 years. But now, “IT IS TIME.” I am reengineering my business.

With the closing of our lunch service, Friday, March 30, 2018, those same principals, which have kept Mitchell’s in business in Downtown Pittsburgh for over one century, will continue as I expand my Corporate Catering in the Golden Triangle and the surrounding areas.

The end of April marks the last banquet booked on our 2nd floor. At that time, the stairwell hole I cut in the floor, 25 years ago, will be filled. My 24 Tab Micro Brew Draft System will continue flowing while renovations to the 1st floor bar begin in May, with the removal of the stairwell and glass partition, doubling the size of our bar. Stay tuned as I work closely with my bartenders, Sarah, Joe and Devon, as we take Mitchell’s Pub to the next level.

Attorneys looking to relocate to a perfect location with over 3000 square feet and beautiful windows, please contact me as our 2nd floor Banquet Room is converted into office space.

I thank our longtime, loyal lunch customers for their years of patronage. Although you may no longer come to my restaurant for a home cooked meal, you can still have it delivered to your office or special event center. I know many will miss my place for lunch. I will miss you all as well, but I said earlier, “It Is Time!”


Thank you,

Jim Mitchell, 3rd Generation Owner
