We decided to eat dinner here the day before a college tour. Lots to chose from on the menu. We ordered an appetizer, drinks and then sandwiches. We promptly received our appetizer and drinks. We then received 3 out our 4 dinners. We began to eat thinking my son's dinner would be right out. Well we were wrong and our... More

We had dinner here and really enjoyed the open air dining area. The wait staff was extremely friendly, the atmosphere is very laid back, & the menu is the same (or almost) as the Corner Room. Salads were good & reasonably priced.

The French fries and the beer have a good price! It is a good place to go with friends! But sometimes the music is too loud...

This Allen Street bar offers inexpensive drinks in a friendly atmosphere. Steps from The Corner Room and the downtown gates of Penn State University, they offer a convenient lace to meet old friends and make new ones. Worth a visit!

Up for daughter's new student orientation, took a stroll through State College to find somewhere to eat and have a beer. Lots of choices of beer both draft and bottles, draft beer cold and fresh. Ordered fried pickles and cheesesteak sandwich. Both excellent, hot, and cooked attentively. Also, I was sitting at bar, bartenders quick and very conversational. Overall good... More

We had excellent old fashion pub stye food both times we visited Bill Pickle's Tap Room. If you're not much of a drinker, you're tab will be ridiculously reasonable. Its one of the best kept secrets at State College. Of course, if you want to partake in a tasty beverage, they offer specialty drinks each day that for the value... More

Nice sports bar. The food was good and the service was very good. My daughter cannot get enough of the fried dill pickles.

Bar with bar food in a college town. It is what you would expect. Lots of TVs, reasonable prices with average food. Chairs are uncomfortable and the bathroom could use some attention... oh well.

We've eaten here on 3 different occasions, only due to the conveniet location. Each time, the service got worse. Our last time, I ordered a salad, while the other 4 in our group got sandwiches. All were served without utensils. Now, that's OK for a sandwich, but a salad? I asked our waiter for some flatware & he said he'd... More

I had a business meeting the other day, and the person wanted to meet at Bill Pickle's Tap Room for lunch. I did not even know the place existed. I met him there, and I was pleased with the rustic surroundings. I was there on a week day. The waitress made a bee line to the table and had our... More
