5 Best Steelers Bars in central Pa.

Share Article

There have already been a few Sundays this football season where the broadcast companies have royal screwed all local Steelers fans.

Find out what games will be broadcast each week.

If you bleed black and gold you probably already know what I am talking about, but not everyone else does.

The Steel City supporters are missing out on watching their team because technically the greater Harrisburg area is consider part of the Baltimore Ravens broadcast area.

So if it is one of those Sundays, and you realize this nightmare has come true — Or you just want to be surrounded by some of the most passionate fans on earth, here are some places that you can be sure to find those Terrible Towels waving.

The Sturges Speakeasy, Harrisburg


The Speakeasy doesn’t really look like your run of the mill sports bar but when it comes to Sundays there are few who do it better.
Game Day Specials:

  • $2 Bud Light and Budweiser Aluminum Bottles
  • Specials on Chili Cheese Dogs
  • Brunch every Sunday 10 a.m.-2 p.m

How to watch: There are a lot of TVs all around and behind the bar.

The Midtown Tavern, Harrisburg


The newly renovated Midtown Tavern is said to be extremely Steelers friendly, one Yelp review even called it a Steelers paradise and that non-Pittsburgh fans should beware.

Game Day Specials:

  • $5 Yuengling Pitchers
  • 40 cent wings

How to watch: They have one very large projection screen where the game is played and also TVs all around the restaurant.

The Caddy Shack,  Mechanicsburg

Their saying “Where Family, Friends and Neighbors…Drop In,” could add Steelers fans to that list as well. They have specials for every game day with a Steelers friendly atmosphere.

Game Day Specials:

  • $9.95 ½ bucket of wings
  • $6 Coors Light pitchers
  • $5.95 Sloppy Joe on Onion Roll

How to watch: There’s a lot of seating around and a lot of TVs to make sure you can see the game from wherever you are sitting in the restaurant.

Gullifty’s, New Cumberland


While it’s not 100% a Steelers bar it is a great place to watch the game when it is one of those dreaded blackouts. They have their bar upstairs but they also have a hidden gem known as Gullifty’s Underground, which is great for binge watching.

Game Day Specials:

  • $6 dozen of wings
  • $6 one topping pizzas
  • $6 Coors Light pitchers

How to watch: The bar upstairs has two huge projection screens if you’re just popping in for a drink or two but the downstairs is where you should go for the entire game. It has TVs on every wall.

Arooga’s Bar and Grill, various locations


This is another bar that is not strictly a Steelers bar but you can be assured that they will be showing the Black and Gold at any of their locations across the area with great specials.

Game Day Specials:

  • $10.99 wings and pretzel dog combo
  • $6 Bud Light or Coors Light pitchers (depending on location)

How to watch: Every Arooga’s is set up differently but no matter where you sit you will always have a great view of the game.

If you find yourself away from home during the game, here is a way to find some Steelers-friendly bars around the country and the world.

This list, of course, isn’t all inclusive. Share your favorite local place to catch the Pittsburgh Steelers.
