Always enjoyed it when we came

Champs is just another one of your average bar food places but it's good because it's so big and you can always get in. They have good beer and good food. The perogies are awesome. Taste homeade. As soon as we came in after the Garth Brooks concert, all I wanted was a water and my husband husband a... read more

I have been going to champs for the past 3 years and for the most part enjoyed it. Their outdoor seating is great and usually the food is consistently good, but tonight I received my chicken wings with a fried chicken feather. Yes, the bartender did remove it from my check but she never said sorry or offered anything else... More

The atmosphere was outstanding and the food was excellent. We were first taken to a seat near the patio and my wife got a little cold so I asked to move and the lady was very cooperative and understanding to our need and moved without any problem. And it was a crowded night I might add.

This restaurant does not have a concept of how customer service operates. I am personally referring to the employee named Tom who claimed to be the " Manager" to sort out a problem. A manager is one who tries to resolve a problem and try to find a common understanding among the customer. I am really disappointed and I must... More

Large restaurant with industrial decor, somewhat worn by presumably heavy usage. Food is good, with interesting touches to standard items. Huge sandwiches in unusual and creative combinations. In evenings, parking may be a problem.

I recently visited Penn State with my high school son and we were looking for a sports bar to watch some baseball while we ate. I found Champ on the "Around Me" application and saw it was close to our hotel. It got decent reviews on another site so we decided to give it a try. I am very glad... More

Huge selection of appetizers, sandwiches, huge burgers and more. It was no trouble for us to find something for everyone, even on the smaller menu used on busy weekends (still a bigger selection than most other joints.) Muscles, 'Brock crock', a favorite paired with a much deserved Friday glass of white wine. Can be a bit loud during sporting events... More

As trip advisor has a limit of 12 months on reviews I will be clear that this review is longer than 12 months. This place though is an institution in state college and what I remember very well are the Long Island ice teas and the buffalo wings. We are .......

I wrote a review a while back about Champs, but I recently had an exceptionally awful experience there, and I need to re-write my opinion. Champs has good food -- I always enjoy what I eat there. Their happy hour is great, and I love to go there for trivia. I accepted a long time ago that their service is... More

It has been a few years since we have been here but it defiantly was not how it used to be. They do not offer the full menu on weekends anymore My son wanted ribs but we couldn't get them. Then he decided on shrimp and pasta but you can't get pasta before 4 pm. Never heard of that. So... More
