We visited The Mount Nittany Inn last Sunday for brunch. We sat on the back deck. The view was awesome. They opened the windows so we could have fresh air. I ordered the french toast and it was good. I had a mimosa with breakfast it is was only $5. This place is a hidden gem!

I admit I was a bit concerned about the food reputation not being that great - but was willing to take the chance for the view. It turned out fine. Wait staff was accommodating and polite. Service was really - and I mean REALLY slow - and that was a bit frustrating because they had a small child with them... More

Took out of town friends. They had venison and said it was excellent. I had salmon/crab tortellini and was excellent! Weren't many in the restaurant, which surprised us, given the quality of the food. Could be that the prices were a little too high for the area. We will go back again anyway. We recommend it.

We did not eat there but just stopped to take in the view which was quite awesome. Definitely worth the ride.

This place is perched on top of a mountain, with a gorgeous view of the valley below. But that's the only good thing I can say about this restaurant. Our first clue should have been that the bar upstairs was full of people, but there were only 3 tables of couples in the restaurant. I ordered a glass of wine... More

I was taking my mother home from Western PA to Central PA and drove up this crazy road. On top of the mountain was this restaurant/bar. We stopped and we were pleasantly surprised. We had appetizers, drinks and lunch. One thing I should mention, my mother walks with assistance and the restaurant is extremely handicapped friendly. The bathrooms were very... More

We just had our wedding anniversary dinner there. It was during a thunderstorm, but even so the view was, as always, terrific (we've been there many times). The food was excellent - I had the Portobello steak dinner, and my wife the crab cakes. Both were delivered hot and were very flavorful. My appetizer, regular fries, were some of the... More

First the view is breath taking. It is a scenic overlook with great food. They had a nice wine list; good menu choices and the service was excellent. The night I dined there was a huge thunderstorm approaching from the west. We watch the magnificent bolts of lightning hit the ridge across the valley then the rain slowly crept in... More

The best thing about our visit was the view. We went in for Eggs Benedict and that was not very good. It was served with their country potatoes, which came out of the kitchen dark brown to almost black, and when we asked the server why they were so dark, he response was they are over cooked. Instead of correcting... More
