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.

I have NEVER had even close to a decent steak here no matter what the type, so I will get that out front. The ribs however are very good as well as the appetizers, pizza and sandwiches. The atmosphere is pretty good as there are numerous televisions to watch on different levels. The service has always been excellent. There is... More

We decided to go to Damon's around 5:30 on a Saturday. We called ahead to see how long the wait would be and we were told 5-10 minutes. After arrival, we were handed a buzzer and told 10 minutes. Fifteen minutes went by and it buzzed. We were seated downstairs and noticed there were many empty tables, so I am... More

The salads are large and the wraps are overstuffed. Service was very fast and prices were reasonable.

Yuck. Probably good place to watch a game and have a beer but can't recommend the food. Started with potato skins ($8.99) - jack and cheddar cheese, scallions, bacon with sour cream and ranch dressing and a half onion loaf ($4.99) which looked good in the picture on the menu. The potato skins were okay but some were burned to... More

We stopped here to eat on early dinner on a Sunday afternoon. We sat in the bar area. I had the steam boat, which was good, just beef with barbecue sauce topped with cheddar cheese served hot in a hoagie roll, fries were also good. Not a spectacular meal, but it was good. My husband had the ribs, and he... More

It wasn't terrible. The food was bland. The sauce on the chicken fettuccine tasted a bit like it came out of a jar. I wasn't impressed. Our waitress was attentive though, and the chocolate cake was sinful. All in all, it did the job for a late a night and now wanting to venture too far from our hotel.
