Description: 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.

The appetizer crab cakes are awful, BUT entree crab cakes outstanding. Soups are good quality and "rustic italian" menu items (chicken and veal) were very good. I'd return.

My parents and in-laws stayed at the hotel and so this was a convenient choice for dinner. Although the restaurant was smaller than I had expected, we all had enough room. It was the menu that was the star here.

They have several soups each day, including ones that are not your standard choices. A fairly extensive set of gluten free items was a welcome site, as both my wife and mother eat gluten free. You can view all of their menus online.

They offer some local items, and I tried the pork tenderloin with a mustard-based sauce. It was very good and a generous portion size.

The dessert menu features a good selection of coffees with different combinations of alcohol, and you can get these decaf too.

The wait staff were very helpful and attentive.

This should be a destination for dinner even if you're not staying at the hotel.
