Hey everyone - I live very close to the old Larry's Roadhouse and noticed it went up for sale last year. In the past few months, it looks like it sold and now work is being done on the building. Does anyone happen to know if it will reopen someday or what is going on with the building? I'm dying to know!!

The other day someone told me that they are removing the 3rd floor, building a 2nd floor deck, renovating the whole building, rebuilding the retaining walls / expanding the parking lot. Not sure when it will be open or if all of that work will be done...

Oh I can't wait until it's done! Looks like they have been doing a lot of work this past week.

That sounds interesting. I wonder what the plans are for it. It was quite the strange building... I'm sure it was a beautiful family home at some point, but made for a pretty tightly packed restaraunt.

It's coming along. Looks like they are building an addition to the back. I'm tempted to go down there and ask one of the workers what the plans are.

R&B construction is renovating Larry's roadhouse and used car world. They actually have me recycling the old brick and relaying it. They got me helping them with all they're masonry work. The used brick looks beautiful. Larry's roadhouse should be open for business by the spring. Stop by and have a look.

Not sure what they are turning it into, but it was a couple of things. I think it was built in the mid 1800s and it was an Inn that was primarily used by people using the nearby railroad stop. At one time it was turned into a brothel then eventually a private home. It later became a restaurant / bar that started out good but towards then end got really bad. The places is supposed to be haunted.

Was just in Pittsburgh recently and saw that Larry's Roadhouse is still being renovated. Any updates about when it will reopen IF it's still going to be a restaurant? From the looks of it, wasn't sure.

Not sure when it will be open or what it is going to be... It looks like they have added onto it, and it doesn't look like it is going to be a restaurant. I am curious to find out...
