“Wonderful Sunday Brunch”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

When my daughter was attending Penn State, we started driving to State College to go to the Nittany Lion Inn for Easter Brunch as a way to spend Easter with her. What a terrific find! The brunches here are fantastic. With a wide variety of food served buffet style. And the price can not be beat. For a holiday brunch, Easter and Mother's Day the brunch cost about $20.00 a person. With food offerings like shrimp cocktails, prime rib and lamb, even caviar, this is truly a bargain. Champagne or Mimosas are included in the price. Their sister inn, The Nittany Lion Conference center serves the same brunch, equally as good. Brunch is served every Sunday. The food is delicious, and well prepared. The staff is always friendly. Highly recommend.

“How can such a great hotel have such a poor restaurant?”
Reviewed March 26, 2010

We stay at the Nittany Lion 2 or 3 times annually. We always dine at the restaurant HOPING it has improved. Alas, it remains mediocre, though expensive. The servers are nice, but the food is expensive and poor.

However, they offer a great breakfast (it's hard to screw up eggs and omelets); so, I do recommend the breakfast.
