New Favorite in State College

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... read 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.

Service, location and white chicken chili. This is part of the Corner Room complex and well worth our time, appetite and $.

Always love Pickles! Typical bar food menu. I had a grilled cheese -- it was tasty. The thing about Pickles is it is a nice shaped ground level bar so you get a lot of natural light. A lot of the bars in State College are basements or upper floors and few windows. That's great for getting hammered but Pickles... More

Nice bar to get a quick beer while I walked around State College. Nice set up, not a dump. Open air seating if I remember correctly. Staff was pleasant also.

Have been here twice now, and the drinks are really good, with usually a special for drafts, and a special on a mixed drink or two. The food was interesting variations on traditional pub fare, for example, instead of just hot wings, they had peanut butter wings, which were delightful! Instead of grilled cheese, a three cheese grilled panini with... More
