State College features a variety of restaurants to suit your mood, your taste buds, and your budget. Our region often gets high compliments not only for the number of restaurant choices, but also the variety of nationalty specialties within a short drive. If you're visiting the Penn State campus, there are plenty of options within walking distance both on and off campus.
On-campus options include The Dining Room at the Nittany Lion Inn, Cafe Laura, the Creamery, Legends Pub, The Gardens Restaurant and others. You could also step foot off-campus just across College Avenue to one of dozens of local State College favorites including longtime favorites The Tavern, Deli Restaurant or Baby's Burgers & Shakes. Of course, there are new options such as Liberty Craft House, Champs Sports Grill or Local Whiskey for those who haven't been back in a while.
