“Nice little restaurant”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Our family has gone here twice now. Our kids really enjoy it. The food is decent. The atmosphere is unique with all the train pictures and eating in what used to be the train station. The wait staff where great, which made it a really nice time.

“Best Prime Rib Around!”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

When I want a cozy dinner of traditional American fare, this is the first place in the State College area that comes to mind. The nostalgic locale in Centre Hall's old train station is comfortable and quiet. This is a great restaurant to visit if you're looking for a quiet meal where you can hear others at your table speak. While I've never had a meal here I didn't like, I make a point of timing my visits for Saturday night. Saturday night is prime rib night--and it is the night you don't want to miss if you are a fan of prime rib. It's always cooked perfectly to order and is so flavorful it needs neither gravy nor steak sauce. The owner is also always there with a smile on her face. To me, it speaks volumes when I see an owner in their restaurant and actively participating in its management.

“Good old-fashioned diner fare”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Have eaten lunch and dinner here. The sandwiches are tasty and there are open faced options with gravy that stick to your ribs. Salads on the iceberg lettuce side of the spectrum, could use more varied and healthier greens, but it IS a diner. Very charming and retro.

“Enjoyed our lunch”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

What a nice cozy restaurant to have lunch. This restored railroad station converted into a restaurant makes gives a cozy atmosphere while dining. The turkey club sandwich was great & the service as well. We will definitely return.
