Traveling with friends, we hoped and planned for a nice dinner out at a local restaurant. Duffy's website (and reviews) were impressive; a nice cocktail menu, white tablecloths, varied menu, rustic setting... Sorry - raw tables, poor service from the moment we walked in, overall disappointment. Lowlights from the evening: - had to fetch waitstaff to get attention for menus... More

We were here during the People's Choice Festival and yes it was very busy. There were a crowd of people waiting to be seated and no one to be found to seat them. So, we opted to go to the bar area where there two seats available. The bartender looked a bit overwhelmed, but he kept his cool and served... More

We stopped here for lunch after visiting the People's Choice festival. It took us forever to get seated. Once seated, we waited 15 minutes for someone to come to our table to acknowledge our presence. We finally walked out and went to Kelly's, where we had a wonderful lunch!

It was one of those hot, Summer, Sunday afternoons when a 50 mile ride on the Harley for a burger and a beer seemed right. Duffy's Tavern in Boalsburg is a reoccurring destination on just this kind of adventure. Boalsburg is a sleepy little village on Rt. 322 just east of State College, PA, home of Penn State University.

Excellent locale for lunch or dinner: quaint building with intimate dining venues. And the food is most excellent. Make sure you start with a homemade soup....no, wait, start with a local draft beer, followed by the soup. Yeah, that's a good plan. Very reasonable prices for quality Americana cuisine, suitable for children. Casual attire (no tank tops, colors, please). We... More

My wife and sons ventured to Duffy's Tavern after a day visiting Centre County sites. The outdoor atmosphere of their patio was excellent. When we arrived the patio was half-full. We sat there for 10-15 minutes before we were approached by our waiter despite having no menus or beer list he wanted our drink order. He took the drink order... More

We opted to participate in the Dinner and Theatre program with Duffy's and Nittany Theatre at the Barn. This turned out to be a very enjoyable evening. Duffy's was prepared ahead of time for us with theatre programs at our place settings. The menu is limited for this event but you had a choice of a meal of pork, chicken... More

Myself and two coworkers ate dinner here before attending a play at the Barn. The food was amazing and the service was good. I had the steak with blue cheese on top and it melted in my mouth,

Had lunch today with a friend that lives in town. WOW we were impressed with Duffy's. Beautiful old house. So much history here. Rumor is the Tavern is haunted, thankful we did not see any ghosts at lunch. French Onion Soup was delicious. Turkey Sandwich with mashed potatoes & gravy was very good & the burgers were great too.

Thank Leeb63
