This is a nice bar/restaurant inside the Nittany Lion Inn. Great bar selection of beers! The food is very good, but limited. Not as many choices of food as in a restaurant.

Fine, until 50 people from some conference decide to "go to the bar," then it's unbearably loud in here. I usually get food while I'm here, but I would never come here to get food. It's not a restaurant with drinks. It's a bar with...More
