North Park Lounge is a bar/restaurant that has been in business for over, well I'm not exactly sure, but its been open since I moved to Pittsburgh in 1979. They have always been known for their excellent fish sandwiches and large portions.
The original ownership group split up some time ago with one owner retaining the North Park Lounge in Mcandless, and the other retaining the North Park Lounge Clubhouse in Gibsonia. Both places have similar menu items such as "Lounge Fries" and "Lounge Licker Wings", but they are no longer affiliated with one another.
Any-hoot, me and one of my coworkers stopped in for lunch at the original North Park Lounge in Mcandless . Having been friends with one of the waitresses at the Lounge for a long time, I have eaten there a few times previously, and while I never had a really bad meal, I also have never had a really great one either.
After seating ourselves in my friends section, we ordered our drinks. Every time I go to the Lounge I make the mistake of ordering a water. The water for whatever reason is frickin horrific tasting. It tastes like 20 year old well water. As usual I change my drink order to a diet Pepsi, which does a good job of covering up the waters taste.
We were told that their was a promo to get a free 10" 4 cut pizza with two toppings, so we ordered that with sausage and pepperoni. My companion ordered the Italian Sausage Sandwich, I ordered the fish sandwich to see why everyone raves about how good it is.

For the love of god someone buy a water filter, so the water does not taste like butt sweat.
