Good food for a hotel restaurant. Very good service at bar for dinner. Steak and crab cake were good choices. Wine is from a box. Rating would have been better if not for that.

This restaurant is located in the Hilton Garden Inn. The location and decor is untremarkable - not offensive in any way, but not terribly exciting either. However, the quality of food and service is remarkable. They have a very wide menu, which is often a...More

Excellent service, interesting menu offerings, fresh ingredients, well-presented dishes. Good wine, great food - a refreshing treat given the area's plethora of sports bars and micro breweries. A civilized break from college town food!More

Description
Each Harrison's Wine Grill menu reflects Chef Harrison's love of local ingredients. At our locally owned, award winning restaurant in State College, we go out of our way to find and use the best products available. Whenever possible, we purchase ingredients from local Pennsylvania growers and purveyors, in particular ones who arrive at the back door with freshly harvested offerings like elephant garlic, fresh green beans, or wild morel mushrooms. When a good quality ingredient is not available locally, we go out of market to find it, especially seasonal seafood. Full bar includes local microbrews on tap and over 20 wines by the glass. Located two minutes from Penn State's main campus, Harrison's is located within the State College Hilton Garden Inn. Harrison's is upscale yet casual, and a favorite of State College locals, Penn State alumni and students. Voted State College's Best Caterer, Best Wait Staff & Best Health Menu by the readers of State College Magazine.
