Allen Street Grill
Located on the second floor of Hotel State College, an iconic corner of hospitality in the community, the Grill has offered the community and alumni one of the grandest views of town and Penn State through floor-to-ceiling windows for more than 40 years. Thoughtfully restored and reimagined by new owners, Chef Karen Nicolas and the team set out to re-establish the Allen Street Grill as the epicenter of the downtown dining scene with a focus on local, quality ingredients and great hospitality.

Food was mediocre and it was extremely noisy!
The gnocchi special was out of this world delicious. Both of us ordered it and we are still raving.
The offering of fresh rolls is a great improvement and much appreciated.
The wine selection still leaves room for improvement- why not support USA and more highly appealing California wineries?
The kale salad we split as an appetizer and was the perfect amount and quite tasty.
All in all the wait staff and manager were attentive and we really enjoyed our evening.
We ate dinner at Allen Street Grill the saturday after thanksgiving (arrived early to beat the traffic back to PSU). It was very quite and not crowded. The service was impeccable! We ate the appetizer and the meal that the waiter offered. Grilled Calamari and Lamb Shank. Both were amazing. I will definitely go back next time I visit Happy Valley.
It was relaxing and wonderful friendly service.
The cocktails were great and our food was great.
My husband had a chicken dish he loved and I had an awesome vegetarian entree. The soup and calamari were good as appetizers. We even shared an apple dessert that was delicious.
Food was excellent! Enjoyed the seasonal menu. Would definitely recommend.
Always a great experience - entire staff is so accommodating & knowledgeable! Everything was delicious as well! Always nice to see Becky year after year as well!
One of the best local dining experiences in a long time!
Love the new menu ! Thanks again for another great dining experience . Looking forward to the holiday (Christmas Eve/New Yers Eve) takeout menu …..a perfect evening , no cooking , just grab a bottle of wine !
We were up in State College picking our daughter up for Thanksgiving break
Great place and atmosphere. Excellent food. Great for a special occasion.
Excellent food and superb service!
Wonderful experience from the moment we checked in. The menu is updated regularly with seasonal options. Our party loved everything we ordered. It’s one of the best spots in town. I highly recommend it!
Meals were good but menu was very small.
Food and service were great, but I wish they had some casual fare on the menu.
Also the wine menu needs to be expanded.
Food excellent. Wait staff busy so limited interaction but efficient. Pleasantly surprised with quality of food given the high level of activity (football weekend).
Amazing service and ambiance
Our first visit since the renovations and the new owners. The revised menu is varied and the food was outstanding. The appetizer, main course, and dessert were all perfectly prepared and delicious. The service was also outstanding— our server was very attentive without being overbearing. We were seated in the bar area and it was a bit noisy, but not overly distracting. Highly recommend for any occasion!
My son and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at The Allen Street Grill on Wednesday evening. Our server was fantastic and very attentive. The calamari app and the tuna app flavors were delicious as were the bronzini sea bass and duck. We will definitely take him there again when we are back in State College for a visit!
Everything we ate was delicious, and the service was wonderful.
Awesome experience! Bartender, food, servers excellent!
ASG is the best fine dining restaurant in State College.
Every meal was prepared to perfection and the culinary experience was exceptional.
The server provided fantastic recommendations for complimentary wines and cocktails.
The service was exceptional. It is our favorite dining experience.
Could not find a single fault and far exceeded my expectations
Delicious!!! Beautiful remodel.
Food was excellent as was service.
Love overlooking the street.
Very nice restaurant , waiter Chad very good and accommodating.
5 of us ordered 5 different mains and everyone was really happy with the food. The only negative I heard was that the coffee wasn’t hot. Otherwise, perfect!
We had a wonderful window view! Our waitress was friendly, efficient, attentive…perfect. The food was outstanding. We will be back!
We highly recommend!
We had a lovely meal, tuna appetizer which was delicious, a pork chop and bronzini which were also wonderful. The space looks great and even the tea was special. Unfortunately didn’t have time to try the desserts.
Good food and service in our favorite town
Parents visiting daughter at college
The food was delicious, creatively prepared and nicely presented. Table linens and quiet lighting made ambiance. Servers were attentive but unintruwiv3e, a rare find these days.
Noise level was a little higher than some of our party preferred.
Finding the restaurant was the most difficult part, as it is up a flight of stairs with little signage helping you find it.
Dinner at the Grill was a highlight of our visit to State College.
Fantastic food and service. Manger came over at the end of the meal and checked on everything. This place is top notch.
Awesome. Will definitely be back
Fun location. Service and food was excellent. One large group was noisy but it did not deter from our enjoyment as the new seating arrangement made it less obvious. Thumbs up!
Best place for a fancy date in State College. Great food and service. Not really a place for kids.
Awesome service paired with inventive comfort food in a relaxed setting. What more could one ask for on a football weekend? The hi-tops by the window are best in my opinion.
The staff were both polite and accommodating when we turned up one guest more than stated in our reservation. We had a great lunch and will definitely return.
The menu had many options and everyone at the table enjoyed their meal, the food was excellent. The bar tender made great drinks and the selection was top shelf!Our server was knowledgeable and attentive.
Our waiter was awesome and was very patient — and answered all of our questions. Dinner was excellent!! - as always! Can’t wait to return!
Wonderful experience. Varied and delicious meal. Fantastic setting. Perfect service. 10 out of 10.
