Cobb salad with one thin slice of cucumber, barely any tomato or cheese. No thank you. Once and done. Not returning.

While driving home to Ohio from Massachusetts, we stopped on Bellefonte, Pa, a beautifully maintained Victorian town, for a late lunch. At random, we chose The Governor's Pub, not knowing what to expect. What a good choice! I especially enjoyed ROSIE'S PIEROGIES - although in...Slovak, I had PIROHIS. Both of our entrees were filling and delicious. Especially pleasing was perfectly achieved service by our server, in spite of a packed dining room and patio. I will definitely plan to stop again on my occasional trips to New England. It was well worth the short detour from I-80.More

The fish in the fish and chips was mostly all breading and very little fish. very disappointing. The wine pours were very good, but it was from mediocre 2 liter bottle.

Wanted to try because of Tv commercials plus pass it all the time working. Got seated right way, place looked dingy, floor not swept was being harassed by flies. Got a Pepsi and a Glass of water, I guess since the Pepsi had ice the...water was not allowed any. The wife’s was the same way. The wife got the shepherds pie and I got the hand breaded chicken strips the strip were big and you got Three pieces but they lacked seasoning and were kind of dry. French Fries we’re great.More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon before antiquing. Sara was our waitress and she did a great job. I had the fish sandwich and fries and he had the chicken and waffles meal. We were both really hungry when...we got there, so we ordered cheese curds. These were very plain and under-seasoned on their own, but the honey mustard sauce did help the flavor. That was the first time we had cheese curds with mustard and not marinara, as we are used to. My fish came out and I was expecting a thick piece of fish on my bun, but my fish was thin and not very meaty. The sandwich did have great toppings on it, so it did have a good taste when eaten all together. The fries were seasoned well and had some herbs on them, enhancing the flavor. My husband’s chicken and waffles came out piping hot (major bonus) and had two substantial pieces of chicken on it. He enjoyed it, but was craving more flavor from the gravy. We would return if we’re back in Bellefonte; it was a friendly place with a cool little cafe/pub vibe.More

Great place for lunch and dinner. Service is always quick, and I've never had food that was anything but fresh, hot, and tasty. Chicken and Chips is what I usually do. Portions are large. Desserts are tasty too. It's nice to eat out on the...deck when the weather is nice...as long as you don't mind the overcompensating motorcycle drivers 'cleaning out their pipes' at the nearby traffic light. Only has on-street parking but it's usually easy to find a spot that is nearby. The only downside...it's not the cleanest-looking restaurant around. I will never understand how restaurant staff do not notice food splatters on walls and dust on pictures/chair rail/light fixtures...More

After reading the reviews we thought the top rated place in Bellefonte would be a good place to go for lunch. We were wrong. We got seated right away, and our mostly friendly waitress came over and took our orders. I started with corn chowder,...evidently a staple there so it must be good, right? It took almost 15 minutes just to get the chowder, and then when it did come, it was covered in yellow cheddar cheese with croutons under. It was at best unseasoned sad potato soup with frozen corn, even my wife thought it tasteless. Then we waited and waited and waited, and the waitress came over after another 20 minutes or so and told us soon. My wife ordered the cigar rolls, supposed to be Korean BBQ wrapped in a shell, she said it was okay, kind of like short ribs, but certainly not Korean flavors by any stretch. I order the chicken and waffle, after reading good reviews and my experience of having delicious chicken and waffle previously. Well, lets see, the chicken was cooked alright, somewhat juicy and again not seasoned, it was covered in white gravy, also tasteless, and the waffle, well it tasted of vanilla? Not sweet, no hint of maple syrup, but with salt and pepper the chicken was okay. My side of cole slaw, well, again not seasoned, see a trend here? We will not go back. We absolutely can't understand the good reviews or the number of people there, maybe we ordered exactly the wrong things, I don't know.More

We were driving home from a family weekend, 3 hours left to go. Bellefonte was the town we decided to take look for gas and food. The Governors Pub was the cutest, cleanest little restaurant. Rita was friendly and gave us a little history lesson...on the town, she told us that everything on the menu is homemade. We had the best corned beef sandwich a delicious burger and ahi tuna salad. Blueberry cobbler for dessert, we finished everything and could have stayed for more if we weren't 3 hours from home.More
