We had an excellent meal at The Down Under Stake House a few weeks ago. I had the salmon and my husband had the seafood casserole (I think it was called). Both were very tasty. The service, by Alex and Ben, was efficient and friendly. Alex stopped back several times to check on us and our food. The only drawback, and it was very small, was that the Triple Chocolate Cake was just a little dry, but it was still good and that was very minor compared to the excellent main meal and the service.

My husband and I were staying at the Carnegie Inn & Spa in State College, PA. This restaurant was recommended by the Inn and we enjoyed it. Dress: jeans to business casual to fancy dress. My husband had steak cooked to his liking and mashed potatoes w/ a side of white rice. His beer was cold and delicious. I had a vegetarian dish of penne pasta w/ marinated & grilled veggies including a large portabella mushroom on top. Portions were generous. Dessert was cheesecake and triple decker chocolate cake with chocolate minimorsals on the end. Danielle (7-26-13) was pleasant and attentive to our needs. We will definitely eat here again. Reservations are available or walk in. The only thing we would recommend is a sign at the beginning of the entrance to Tofttree Golf Resort that gives more direction to where the restaurant is and also a sign inside the foyer to show you were the restaurant is in the large place.

The Down Under is a steak house, but my favorite dish there is the seafood casserole. In my experiences in State College it's the best sea food available. The service is super and I'll single out Andrea who was our server this evening, Danielle who we have had before several times, and Will who arranged a special meal that was not on tonight's dinner menu.

I decided to give the Down Under Steak House a try after a recent round of golf at Toftrees. The staff was very friendly and helped me decide to give the wings a try. The teriyaki flavor sounded good so I gave them a try. To say they lived up to my expectations would be a huge understatement -- they were amazing. Last week, I returned and gave the Pittsburgh Steak Salad a try. Again, the food and staff were incredible. The prices were reasonable and worth the money. I would recommend giving the Down Under a try. You will be back.

Thank Mike R
