“Nothing spectacular”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I went here with some friends after my colleagues at work rave about it; it definitely has that sort of eclectic and old feeling about. Along the lines of a dive bar, but very easy-going. When i was there, it was considerably crowded, and pretty difficult to move in, especially since it's a small place with low ceilings. Now i do know they always have something new there n terms of beer, but i'm honestly not too big a fan of beer, so i don't particularly have a draw here.

“Don't waste your time going here”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

I went here on a Saturday night with some friends. We were visiting from out of town. There is a $5 cover charge and if you are the designated driver and drinking sodas expect to pay $2 each for them. I am not accustomed to having to pay that much for a plain coke at a bar. Also, don't go there expecting decent food. The food is greasy and cold. The bar the night we were there was terrible. They couldn't stay on tune and the musicians were not very good. I would not suggest wasting your money on this place there are a lot better places in State College that you can go.

“Stay away!”
Reviewed September 4, 2011

There are plenty of bars in State COllege. Zenos is not worth your time. The staff act like you are doing them a favor by showing up. They treat you like dirt. Give your business to any other bar.

“Dreadful service”
Reviewed June 24, 2010

Stopped by for a drink AFTER lunch (2 pm). There were all of THREE people in the entire establishment. The bartender let me sit for half an hour with an empty glass to cut up lemons. I'm not used to having to flag someone down with so little going on. Eventually I just left, but the bartender is lucky I tip up front and never take back a tip once it's on the bar.

Unfortunately, due to the wide selection of brews, I'll be back.
