Very nice menu of different cuisines. Our little family dinner for five included Unreconstructed Beef Wellington, Vegetable Lasagne, Gnocchi, Scallops, and a Hamburger. Everyone loved their food. Service was great. They had a nice selection of cocktails and very nice wine list. It is a rather small place inside of a hotel. We will be going back. Oh, very reasonable... More

Came here for dinner and was quite disappointed, my steak was served to me cold and overall the food was extremely bland.

I was so surprised and pleased. This is a really first rate restaurant hidden in a Hilton Garden Inn. The decor is pretty standard for the hotel chain but the food is not. Everything about the place is first rate. The staff is very friendly and prompt. The bar has great drinks and an interesting cocktail menu. The dining options... More

When staying at the Hilton Garden Inn, I've had drinks at their bar and have eaten there for breakfast only. This is a nice little bar/restaurant for the busy traveler. They have a very nice breakfast buffet and their service is good. I can't speak to the other meals that they offer. When staying at this hotel, I typically go... More

This restaurant is located in the Hilton Garden Inn. The location and decor is untremarkable - not offensive in any way, but not terribly exciting either. However, the quality of food and service is remarkable. They have a very wide menu, which is often a bad sign, but they carry off every dish remarkably well. I have visited 3 times... More

I spent two days at the Hilton, had drinks at Harrison's both nights, breakfast, a snack and a late night dessert. All were very good, reasonably priced and tasty! The bartender recommended a homemade rhubarb and strawberry pie that lived up to the hype (first rhubarb pie ever). The value for your money was excellent. The staff was first rate... More

Excellent service, interesting menu offerings, fresh ingredients, well-presented dishes. Good wine, great food - a refreshing treat given the area's plethora of sports bars and micro breweries. A civilized break from college town food!

We celebrated my mom's 91st birth day here with family. The restaurant and staff were very accommodating to our needs.

Each Harrison's Wine Grill menu reflects Chef Harrison's love of local ingredients. At our locally owned, award winning restaurant in State College, we go out of our way to find and use the best products available. Whenever possible, we purchase ingredients from local Pennsylvania growers and purveyors, in particular ones who arrive at the back door with freshly harvested offerings like elephant garlic, fresh green beans, or wild morel mushrooms. When a good quality ingredient is not available locally, we go out of market to find it, especially seasonal seafood. Full bar includes local microbrews on tap and over 20 wines by the glass. Located two minutes from Penn State's main campus, Harrison's is located within the State College Hilton Garden Inn. Harrison's is upscale yet casual, and a favorite of State College locals, Penn State alumni and students. Voted State College's Best Caterer, Best Wait Staff & Best Health Menu by the readers of State College Magazine.
