If you love watching sports and eating good food, this is a must visit while in the area. You truly get great game day atmosphere in the place. The food and service is outstanding. We will continue to eat here now and into the future.

Great sports bar, away from the downtown traffic. The menu changes at times, but, the popular items are always there. The owner could be nicer to his staff, especially in front of patrons.

We've eaten at Champs many times over the last couple of years. My son is a student at Penn State and whenever we come to visit we offer to take he and his friends out to lunch or dinner wherever they want to go. And this is where we always end up. The menu is extensive and includes a variety... More

I have been here many times and always enjoy the place. The menu is LARGE with something for everyone. It's definitely a step above pub food and the portions are big. You will definitely not leave here hungry. The beer is cold and the selections are plentiful. There is something here for everyone. The atmosphere is great for family and/or... More

We frequent Champs and love the place in general. Great beer selection and food is always great. Our most recent visit was a bit of a turnoff as the manager opened the back windows and basically flashed us with his low riding jeans and butt crack! Really? The manager at Champs needs to grow up and buy a belt, longer... More

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
