Good food, good service, decent price.

We went here for dinner. Looks small from outside but is pretty big inside, including a large outside deck. Not much to look at, 2 large rooms with booths and tables. There was a huge TV about 8' X 10', in the room we were in as the Eagles came on. Good menu, good service and decent prices... read more

The place to go before or after a Penn State sporting event. Best wings in town.the nachos platter is also very good. Good selection of 'bar food'.

Delicious food with a great atmosphere for watching your favorite sports team or chilling out on the outdoor deck. Reasonably priced food, helpful staff and good portions. Desserts are really excellent.

A really good place to go for brews with friends - any age. They have an excellent selection of beer, many micros from east coast. They also have very good wings, as mentioned in other reviews and I have had good calamari there as well (not overcooked and rubbery). Many of the sandwiches on the menu are good as well.

Since I was in college many moons ago, I have raved about Champs. Their wings have been the standard to which I hold all wings- I have several favorite memories of their Wing Nights from college, and it was nice to see they continue the tradition. This time we were able to sit outside since it was an unusually not-humid... More

Great place for lunch with friends or for business -- good food with a great sports ambience. Servers were fantastic and the meals are reasonably priced. The salads are highly recommended, though not the standard sports bar fare. Access from the main road can be tough depending on traffic; leaving is harder than arriving. Well worth it though.

Nice large sports bar. Went in for a drink, wings, and you have to try a Suzie Wong Egg rolls. All good, relatively inexpensive.

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
