We stopped here for dinner on our way to a weekend getaway. I'd never heard if it but saw it on here amd wanted to give it a shot. Everything we had was fantastic! We even ordered dessert. Afterwards we took a walk along the...river which is just a few blocks away. We'll definitely be back!More

I honestly have never had a bad meal here, it's my family's favorite place to eat! My favorite dish is the PA Dutch chicken and waffles - total comfort food, best I've ever had! The desserts are to die for, and change with the seasons!...The atmosphere is great! Highly recommended! A++More

Delicious! Everything we got was delicious. We all couldn’t believe how good the food was. I got chicken and waffles and their chicken tenders are to die for. I will be coming here again when we are in town. Bellefonte has a very cute down...town area too. Make sure you stop by!More

Stopped here for dinner while visiting Penns Cave. Big menu with lots of interesting items on it. We started with crab stuffed pretzels and Korean cigars. Both tasty. For dinner I got the ahi tuna salad. It wasn’t my favorite, tuna didn’t taste like it...was seasoned with anything, very bland, inlaws got chicken n waffles. Huge portions & very tasty. Hubs got shepherds pie which he enjoyed. Kids got grilled cheese & pizza. It says they come with cookies but the waiter said they didn’t have any because of the pandemic? Very small inside, we had 6 people and 3 tables had to be pushed together. Service was great. They did have outdoor seating as well but it was raining. I’d def stop back in if I was in the area.More

After a long move-in day at Penn State for our granddaughter we were starving!! The Governors Pub was recommended to us. What a find! Even though it was almost 8pm we were warmly welcomed and had a "home cooked" meal of meatloaf, with delicious, hot,...mashed potatoes and gravy, chicken tenders with french fries and a brownie sundae to die for!! We were so hot & tired, but what a treat we had. If you're going to Penn State, take a little side trip to Bellefonte, PA and experience this beautiful town and have a wonderful meal at the Governor's Pub!!More

We intended to visit other establishments, but once we had their burgers and experienced their service, we came back ever night for the salad and the shepherds' pie and the rest.

Gonernor's was recommended to us by the proprietor of the B n B we stayed at, and it did not disappoint! Food was delicious, service was quick and friendly. Atmosphere was relaxed. Definitely will be back.

love the menu, the friendliness and Lancaster Milk Stout as a drink; five min walk from the river and park, close to all B&B in the city.

Staff friendly and food very good, with social distancing possible on porch or well spaced inside. (We did take out first night of 2 day visit in Bellefonte, then went back next day). Shrimp (or chicken) Alfredo sauce excellent! Prices reasonable, portions large.
