A classic!

Besides having the best wings in town, they also have one of the biggest beer selections as well, but it's mostly bottled. It's a nice, cozy little place with a bar and several dining areas, but it can fill up quickly, especially if they're hosting an event, or if any of the local sports teams are... read more

The outside courtyard is beautiful. Drink selection is great! Salads are yummy! It is a wonderful place for friends to catch up with a drink and dinner.

Great neighborhood bar with much better than average food. Always a wide selection of craft beer and occasional whiskey, scotch and wine flight specials. Service is friendly and efficient and whether drinks or food at bar, always served quickly and with a smile. If you're looking for a wide range of really good, freshly prepared bar/pub food, you absolutely should... More

My wife and I came here with our 2 year old, great experience. The Burgoon and 6th burger is solid (Gorgonzola on a burger needs to become more popular) . Our daughter loved her grilled cheese, fries, and carrot sticks. Our server, Zachariah, was very attentive, and we appreciated his patience with us and our daughter. The beer list was... More

Great food: delicious appetizers, salads, sandwiches, subs, bar food, dinners. And to go with the food is the best beer selection in Altoona. Bjorn does a tremendous job of offering beer not found at other establishments. The waitstaff has always been courteous and prompt. We enjoy our lunches there.

Our first time at this acclaimed local bar/restaurant has us wanting to go back for more. The bartender and staff were friendly and knew the beers and the food menu. 30 different craft brews on tap. It's billed as the only decent place in Altoona PA to get a drink and now I know why. If you go, try their... More

This is typically a nice bar with a great selection of beers available. In warm weather, the patio is a great place to dine. The food is very good and I recommend the Souvlaki. The service is a little slow on the patio, but it is worth the wait. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a drink while you wait for... More

Looks can be deceiving, outside of this place doesn't look like much but it's got a great dining area inside as well as the court yard with plenty of tables. Wasn't busy when we went so service was fast and they were all friendly. Food was fantastic! They had so much to choose from but we went with the sandwiches... More
