Good food, reasonable price, full stomach

I'm not a huge fan of a "commercial building" style of restaurant but it is fairly nice inside and quite casual. TV's for watching a game but it just doesn't give me that "sports bar" feel. Entire restaurant is open so the dining room is "right there" but the bar noise, somehow, doesn't trickle... read more

Only stopped in to watch the game & have a beer with a friend. The bartenders were very friendly & the prices were reasonable. Did not eat anything but enjoyed the atmosphere. If in the area again, I will definitely go back & try the food.

The Pub atmosphere was nice and inviting, and the restaurant had that "newly built to look Old" look. Service was good and the menu offered up several German-style dishes so we were excited and looking forward to the meal. The Jager Schnitzel was dry and somewhat tasteless, and not even close to the real thing. The Cajun Steak salad was... More

Olde New York has great pub style and German food. The soft pretzel and potato pancakes were delicious. So was the potato salad served as a side. Our party of six enjoyed everything we ordered. Service was good and food was hot and plentiful. The guys enjoyed the beer too.

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 lot... 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
