My dinner here was fantastic. First, they have a great happy hour between 4 and 7, with substantially reduced prices on drinks and appetizers. I had the tuna melt for dinner which came with Old Bay Chips. The service was excellent and efficient.

My dinner here was fantastic. First, they have a great happy hour between 4 and 7, with substantially reduced prices on drinks and appetizers. The wine list is good - particularly when it is reduced by as much as 50% at happy hour. And, they pour a decent sized glass as well. I also loved the philly cheese steak. Their... More

The service was excellent, the décor in the bar area is very nice and the food at the buffet was very good. The meatloaf tasted like home made and the salad bar selection was very good, especially considering the price was only $7.50. I would definitely eat here again when in the area.

Great food with large portions. Wait staff was a little slow but then it was later on a Friday night.

Specials every day and Happy Hour is always fun. Great appetizers and atmosphere. Sarah is very good with attention to her patrons needs. Hot Wings....yes! Tempura Chicken Fingers &... More

Wow. What a disappointment. Looked like a decent place to go based on previous reviews. We were here during a non football weekend, so there was no excuse for bad food. The panini is awful. Chicken thigh meat and a beet! Don't go there. The pizza was undercooked, and they counted the toppings on the meat lover. I'm not an... More

I took my family after a visit to State College. We are always looking for new places to try. Parking was easily accessible to the restaurant, once inside there is plenty of room to eat, tables are not crowded around others. Once seated the staff was right there to take our order. We told them it was our first time... More

Been here for late lunch many times now over the years, always on the day before a football weekend. The food has been consistently good and service attentive but not intrusive. Reasonably large portions. Parking can be difficult if the surrounding hotels are full.

Not your typical hotel bar food. Nice Grilled Chicken with what must have been a whole avocado and a mild sauce that you could detect but was not overwhelming. Also had a burger, and pulled pork both good.

Located inside Ramada Inn makes this an easy spot to go while staying at the Hotel. Had Caesar Salad and flatbread appetizer. Husband had fish sandwich others had nachos (lg portion) and shrimp cocktail. All food was good and what u expect. Fajitas come out sizzling and just wish the onions and green peppers weren't still crunchy. Happy Hour 4-7.... More
