We were in State College PA for ZFest 2014. It was our first visit and we were not disappointed. We were treated to delicious hamburgers & hot dogs by Damon's on Thursday night. We appreciate the hospitality and service and warm welcome to State College.

Drink the beer because you will need a few to be able to eat the food. The French onion soup was absolutely horrible and the “wrap”, well let’s say I know why they wanted to wrap it up so you couldn’t see what was in it. Save yourself and just eat the steak. Sometimes an establishment should decide if it... More

Our very large group (ZFest) was invited to go to Damon's for our meet-n-greet. They provided our group with free hamburgers, hot dogs, and $2.00 beer. They were very friendly and welcoming. We ordered off of the menu as well and the waitress was very busy but she did a very good job. All of the staff at Damon's in... More

My mother and I went to Damon's next to our hotel. We went late but it was still good! The food was good but I was a bit chilly. It appeared that the AC was on like full blast. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the meal and it was a great time!

We've eaten at Damon's several times over the past six months (while visiting PSU), and have always found the staff to be friendly and accommodating. The food is typical of what you will find in any chain restaurant; filling and of average quality. Most recently, we started with the Chili Loaded-Nachos appetizer, which was exactly what you would expect and... More

I special thanks to manager Greg for helping with a birthday surprise for my husband. He loved it! We had dinner at Damon's Grill State College on a recent trip to visit Penn State University. The service was good and the food was even better. Would definitely dine here again if we should be in the Penn State area. We... More

We visited Damon's as part of a large group, which overtaxed the staff a bit. Some of our orders got mixed up and a few minor goofs resulted, but, all in all, the Damon's servers dealt with the crush fairly well. My companion ordered a steak well done and it was cooked as ordered, but not very flavorful. The sweet... More

My kids and I were visiting State College for the Arts Festival and needed a place to eat. My son has a severe food allergy and we had great difficulty finding a place to eat until Damon's. The staff was excellent when it came to his allergy and prepared food for him that was excellent. He loved the ribs! My... More

While Damon’s has restaurants in a few places, the one in State College is all done in a Penn State theme. Photographs of Beaver Stadium and various time periods of Penn State Football adorn the walls. The ribs fall off the bone, the beer is cold, and the burgers are great. Eating in, or picking up the meal for your... More

It was late at night and we were hungry. Service was good and food was average. Other than that there isn't a lot to say. Just average in my opinion. Our server was very pleasant and friendly.
