Overall the service was very good, these guys and gals were working hard and they're mostly college kids living off tips. Their attentiveness and good nature pushes the bar to "very good" and not just "average." The food is pretty typical bar food with a couple of different selections. The wings... read more

We stopped here for lunch and had a great window seat. It faces an alley so it was quieter than most places and great for people watching. Good beers on tap. Nice variety of food. From fried pickles to salmon with quinoa!

For years I wanted to go to "Pickle's", but my husband doesn't drink and prefers the more restaurant-like atmosphere at the "Corner Room". Finally I got my wish, and it was sheer bliss sitting at a table next to an open window on a sunny day. Even during the semester break there's a lively scene on south Allen Street. The... More

First time visit to this pub and we had a great experience. Arrived around 9:00 pm to watch the Final 4. The place was lively and there were plenty of TV's to watch the game. We were able to get two seats at the bar and had no problem with service. Actually, it seemed that there was a lot of... More

Well visiting State College i found this pub to be the most friendly/ cozy bar in town. Our bartender was very friendly his name was bryon I believe. Good food and drinks are very resonable. Be back soon

Stopped in for a quick dinner on a Saturday evening. My daughter had a Blue Moon and French onion soup, while I also enjoyed a Blue Moon with a reuben. Very nice, with friendly service. Excellent.

If you aren't sitting at the bar there is very poor service at the tables for drinks. Kind of dark inside too. The bartender seemed to have a little bit of a lacks attitude. Specialty drinks weren't so great. I guess its' okay to stop for a beer. They do open up the windows when its warm so you feel... More

Stopped here for dinner as I wanted to catch some sports. Nice choice of beer and service was real good. Wings were good but the burger (bison) was quite greasy.

Great bar right in down town with very good bar type appetizers. If I was still in college this would be a great place to drink late night. But its also a really good after work happy hour spot.
