Pies & Pints Restaurant, A Charleston Favorite
Pies& Pints is a restaurant that originated in Fayetteville, West Virginia. The people of Charleston, West Virginia, myself included, were thrilled when they branched out and opened a downtown location on Capitol Street. Within days, Charleston’s Pies & Pints had been bought out to franchise. Today, the restaurant spans six states with 15 locations. This is the place to go for mouthwatering gourmet pizza and a huge selection of beer on tap.
Having been to Pies & Pints on several occasions and to different locations, the Charleston, West Virginia is my favorite. The restaurant is quaint with high top seating that makes it possible to watch the pizzas being made. The waitstaff is knowledgable and the atmosphere vibrant.
For starters, sink your teeth into the Pork and Pepper Nachos. This tasty number is loaded with black beans, jalapeños, cheddar cheese, salsa, scallions, and chipotle crema. Holy smokes these nachos are yummy!
Incredible Pie Choices
Charleston’s Pies & Pints makes amazing pizza. You can order the half and half option which allows you to pick two kinds of pizza, large size only for this deal. They will make each half from a different pizza combination, thus you can share with someone and at least have two options; it is a win, win for everyone! Gluten-free choices are also available. My go-to order is the Grape & Gorgonzola and the Steak & Mushroom.
Grape & Gorgonzola is Pies & Pints biggest seller. It is topped with plump red grapes, fresh rosemary, and Gorgonzola blue cheese crumbles. It may sound bizarre, but the taste is refreshing and incredible!
The Steak & Mushroom features caramelized onions, Gorgonzola (I’m seeing a trend), scallions, and horseradish creme. Delish! This is the ultimate comfort food pizza pie.
Beer, Beer, and More Beer
If you are a beer fan, you’ll be as “happy as a clam at high tide”, that’s Southern speak. Happy hour at Charleston’s Pies & Pints runs Monday through Friday from 3 to 6 PM. Deals are $1 off pints and select house wines plus $2 off apps. Pies & Pints has 19 beers on tap, 33 different bottled beers, and 18 cans in stock currently, plus hard cider.
