Large menu and friendly service at The Corner Room. Burgers, sandwiches and salads are what you would expect in this college town restaurant.

“Something for (Almost) Everyone”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

If you are looking for a fancy, low-key, upscale dining experience - this is not for you. It was a lively, affordable, and tasty mid-afternoon meal for my family and two of my son's friends on a trip to State College to move them into their rooms for the fall semester at PSU. Arriving at The Corner Room around 3:30 pm on one of the busiest days of the year for the town found this restaurant nearly full but the staff had us fixed up and seated in minutes. Our waiter was excellent and the menu was large and varied. The food was served in a very respectable time frame considering the crowd. Thanks to the reasonable prices and some afternoon specials (our meals included free soft drinks for all and free upgrade from chips to fries with a sandwich order) we were able to fill six hungry appetites for under 70.00. Everyone enjoyed their orders and I would definitely return here on our next trip to State College.

“Historic restaurant with great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

We had salads with flank steak. This was probably as good as I've had for $10 a plate but I have to admit I have had a few better meals but these were at least three or four times the price.

“Nostalgia in State College”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

The Corner Room was a place we used to go for Sunday brunch while in college. Today it still has that charm. Visited on a Saturday afternoon for lunch - not impressed. The place is wearing out and needs a facelift while maintaining the charm. Food was average at best.

“Not Fancy, But Good”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Apparently other reviewers expected fine dining. I did not. This was my first time to State College and this was recommended by friends who went to school there. I had the steak burger and thought it was excellent, as were the onion rings. Very casual atmosphere, afterall, it IS in the center of a college town.
