    It's not upscale, but for some of the best burgers (and their house-made chips) and milkshakes try Burgatory right off Route 28. It's located in a strip shopping center. You'll love the brioche buns.

    Calling Buffetbuster and Ralph Melton for upscale dining recommendations.

      Sorry I did not see this before.....
      You didn't mention breakfast, but I highly recommend Pamela's P & G Diner in Millvale, which is a very short distance from Etna.  They are best known for their strawberry hotcakes, which are rolled up like crepes, but everything is good.  Great old-fashioned soda fountain atmosphere, too.
      As for the rest, I have some good ideas of where to recommend, but want to make sure they are still around.

        One suggestion for sure is Gran Canal Caffe in Sharpsburg, which is another neighborhood a stones throw from Etna.  Sharpsburg is known for all the Italian eateries and Gran Canal Caffe is the best of them.  I would never call them upscale, as you can eat there in jeans and a t-shirt, but it is nicer place than what most people would call Roadfood.  Everything is made from scratch.

          I like buffetbuster's suggestions. 
          I would also mention Jean-Marc Chatellier's French bakery, which is nearly across the street from Pamela's. It closes at 2pm or so, so wouldn't be an 8pm option.
