Needed a place for dinner as we stayed overnight in Altoona. Looked up local places and came across a great menu at the Knickerbocker. Decided to try it out. Walked into the bar area with no signs to point us in the right direction. Our...More

I came in for a snack and had dinner on their wings. Some of the best I’ve had. IMO, better than the originals in Buffalo. Perfectly crispy but not over done. Moist and delicious. Only one sauce selection, which is a medium Buffalo sauce. Happy...More

The Knickerbocker was built in 1904 I believe. From the outside the facade is worn and weathered. It is a unique structure situated on a corner. We weren't too sure if we even wanted to eat here. We walked in and immediately were in the...More

The Knickerbocker Tavern, hidden in a residential neighborhood of Altoona is a real gem. As an authentic old school tavern offering some really tasty food including some creative options, it's a legitimate gastropub, unlike many of the contrived newer places that call themselves one.

The outdoor patio is a great place to hangout and have some drinks on a summer night. The waitstaff is super friendly and the crab dip is the best!

The quality of the food is top notch. Limited menu allows for good food. They recently updated the menu and some of my favorites were removed. So now I am enjoying trying some new items. The duck breast meal is Amazing!

Delicious food and great service. My husband says it's the most comprehensive bar menu he's every seen. Really enjoyed it. The Courtyard seating is cute and the inside is huge! I had the grilled cheese and he had the pub burger. We split the fried...More

Mon - Fri 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm is Happy Hour. Half off draft beers and $2.00 off of most appetizers. Really can't beat it!
