Amazing bloody mary's- almost a meal with all the garnish. Husband and I shared the mussels- amazing. Drenched in this great broth with little junks of chorizo which added just the right touch. Served with a huge loaf of warm bread off for dunking. Worth every penny and very filling.

The service and food were nothing special. My daughter and I had a great time here last year so something has changed. Plenty of TV's in the restaurant if you wish to watch sports during a meal.

My husband and I stayed in State College overnight for a baseball tournament our sons were in. We were looking for a sport-themed restaurant and were very happy with our seletion of Champs. The wings were delicious (recommend the hot garlic wings -- we finished them the next day for breakfast!) and I had the grilled eggplant sandwich, which was... More

We loved our visit here! This was our first time visiting Champs. The service was excellent. The staff was friendly and eager to please. The food was delicious and the portions were large. The prices were more than reasonable. Everything we saw being served looked inviting. Our drinks were very good. We could not believe the drink prices during Happy... More

Ok you don't go to Champs if you're in a hurry. You go there to enjoy your evening. I live in State College and have been here dozens of times. I have ordered throughout the entire menu and I have never had a bad meal, from nachos to steak. They have so many beers on tap, one of our favorite... More

Champs is a great venue. Food is consistently good. Lots of beer on tap. Good happy hour during the week. Sports on many televisions. Front room gets very loud when an event is on the big screen. A regular favorite spot!

Outstanding menu and good selection of beer. Comfortable seating and not too noisy. Recommend the BBQ food or the salads.

I had them deliver food to the Best Western, their steak was great, it didn't take long to get here, didn't go inside but the guy on the phone was very helpful with helping me decide what to order, it was a good price I thought for the amount of food I got

Champs is a good place to get a beer and some pub food while watching a game. Food quality is ok, the service has been slow on my last three visits. On my most recent visit, my party of 8 (6 kids under 15) came in on a non-PSU football weekend around 215 in the afternoon. The place looked to... More
