Good option

It had been awhile since we had gone to Olde New York, but on a cold winter day the fireplace made the setting very cozy. The sandwiches are good choice along with the cured meats that are made in house. I was surprised to see some former Ale House staff working there, but the Ale House has had a... read more

Food okay but salad came dry with what seemed like no salad dressing. Asked for more salad dressing. Was charged $1 for dressing on our bill. Thought that was ridiculous. Wont go again.

We have lived here for less than 5 yrs & came to the conclusion that there are barely mediocre restaurants in the area. No standouts, nothing worth the money spent and then we heard about Olde New York. Being from the city I am always skeptical of these kinds of so-called NY restaurants in the middle of nowhere but this... More

Our party of three were completely happy with our meal. The standout meal was the Reuben Burger. Yum! Our server was super attentive and very nice about our indecisiveness, and special order.

If you are looking for a good schnitzel in State College, this is the place to go. It is a taproom and restaurant with TVs on the wall in the bar, so when it is crowded, it can get loud. The deli sandwiches are outstanding, and the German menu items such as Weiner or Jaeger Schnitzel with potato pancakes or... More

I was told a lot of great things about this place and was looking forward to meeting a colleague here after work for drinks and some food. We walked in. The place was not crowded. There was probably more staff than patrons. Because of the length of time it took us to get service, it seemed immediately clear that my... More

It was busy yet we got a table quickly. the food was very good, I had an awesome burger and my husband had a really big and tasty salad. Some of the prior reviewers complained about the noise. I did not think it... More

Very good hot sandwiches. Great place for both lunch and dinner with a very nice selection of beers. Prices are reasonable and service is generally quite good.
