I ate here on a Monday night after touring Penn State with my 17 year old son. We enjoyed the Irish decor and the fact that different rooms were set up with slightly different themes. Most of the wall decorations and even some furniture were from Ireland. We ordered two dishes off the Celtic cuisine section - the $11.99 chicken boxty (a generously sized potato pancake wrapped around chicken, sauteed peppers & onions, cheddar cheese) and the $14.99 drunken steak. Both were served with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. The prices were reasonable and food tasty. Our waitress was friendly and very attentive. We enjoyed our visit.

The food here is very average and overpriced. The place is not very big and it becomes crowed quickly. The parking lot is one of the worst in downtown. Do not even try to park there. If you are going to try eating here I suggest you park in a parking garage or on the street and walk there.

A friend and I in search of some GOOD beer, also experianced some excellent food in the process. Kildares Irish Pub on E. College Ave in State College PA. is a great location for both great beer selection and a wild and wonderful menu. As a couple of "old guys" we decided to sit at the bar, and bar tender Colin, was very helpful in leading us to our beer choices. All in all great Food and Beer and excellent service with a good mix of town folks and studentsmakes this place feels like a very comfortable neighborhood bar/restaurant.

We eat here relatively often. While we don't generally enjoy chains, this one has some personality with its rooms of Irish character. Their food is always good. We especially like the boxty and chicken pot pie. Fish and chips are also a favorite. Good ( not great) service and reasonable prices. Free parking!
