NOW IN OUR 24th SEASON OF PROUDLY CHEERING FOR OUR STEELERS FROM ATLANTA, GEORGIA!!
The Pittsburgh Steelers Fan Club of Atlanta (formerly the Steelers Fan Club of Gwinnett in Atlanta-metro) is an informal group of Pittsburgh Steeler fans whose sole purpose is to get together on Sundays to cheer the Steelers back to the Super Bowl. We have no officers, meetings, or dues. The only requirement for membership in this exclusive club is that you be a die-hard fan of the Black and Gold! Recruit for us, the more the merrier! We maintain a “membership” address list so that we can keep in touch with each other and so that we might meet up with some old buddies from the ‘Burgh.
The club meets for all Steelers games at the following locations:
Stadium Sports Bar and Grill in Dacula,
The Tilted Kilt in Suwanee,
Dave & Busters in Duluth,
Three Dollar Cafe in McDonough,
Pepperoni’s Tavern, Alpharetta.
Stadium Sports Bar and Grill in Dacula is located at 831 Auburn Road in Dacula. Stadium Sports is owned by Steelers fan club members Bob and Karen Thomas. They are die-hards like us and know how to treat fellow Steelers Fans. They have a family-friendly location and the inside is non-smoking. They do have an outside patio if you want to go out for a smoke. The location is a short drive off of rt 316, or about 5 miles off of I-85.
The Tilted Kilt in Suwanee, Ga is at 1500 Satellite Boulevard, at the Corner of Old Peachtree Rd near the Home Depot. It is conveniently near I-85 exit 109. It is a non-smoking environment and children are allowed. Take exit 109 off of I-85 onto Old Peachtree Rd, head west, and the Kilt will be a short distance on the right. The Tilted Kilt is also the home of another Steelers fan club, so we will be in good company. The Assistant General Manager, Mike Gilbert, is a ‘Burgher, a huge Steelers Fan, and assures us that the Steelers Fann Club of Atlanta is welcome!

Pepperoni’s has a great menu and is non-smoking inside. They have a patio for smokers. They also make a Primanti style sandwich and have Iron City beer. Ask to meet Bill and he’ll take care of you.
The club was started in 1990 at the Falcon Inn, then the home of the Atlanta Falcons, in Suwanee Georgia since they had a satellite dish and were willing to put up with a few Steelers fans on Sundays. The club didn’t have a name back then since it was just a handful of diehards. The first game of the season wasn’t shown since lightning struck the satellite dish the night before. Things went downhill from there, although the staff was very friendly and we had some pretty good times there.
In 1991 Barnacle’s, then called Jordan’s, was opened in Duluth, Georgia near where many of us work. It was a great, convenient place to stop for a cold one after work and we got to know the owner and managers pretty well. When they installed a satellite dish before the 1991 season we jumped at the chance to move the club – and they accepted. That year we had a membership list of about 20 people.
In 2009, the Fan Club expanded to include a venue near the Mall of Georgia, Stone Creek Tavern. Stone Creek was added as a venue because so many of our members have moved to the areas surrounding the Mall of Georgia over the years. Unfortunately, Stone Creek Tavern closed the Mall of Georgia location after 1 season and relocated to the Dacula area.
In 2012, we have members attending the Steelers games at Stadium Sports Bar and Grill in Dacula, Tilted Kilt in Suwanee, Dave & Busters, in Duluth, Pepperoni’s in Alpharetta, and Three Dollar Cafe In McDonough.
