Tavern Restaurant

Housed in a cozy colonial setting among historic Pennsylvania memorabilia, The Tavern has been a State College tradition since 1948. Traditional American dishes include veal cutlets, pot roast, clams, fish and pastas. The best part is you can order as many side dishes as you want with your entree! Save room for dessert because cheesecake is the specialty; they still use the same recipes that the original owner’s mother used starting in 1948! There is always a wait, so reservations are a good idea. There is also an extensive, moderately priced wine list that includes local PA wines.
