Contemporary American
Located in the heart of downtown State College, our newly restored space offers an honest, no-fuss menu featuring modern American cooking. The bar program features classics-inspired craft cocktails and a thoughtfully curated biodynamic wine list including plentiful wines by the glass.

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.

    I enjoyed it a lot. I requested a window seat and they accommodated. We had fantastic dinners, quick service; the waiter even surprised us a bit a couple times throughout the night. Shout out to Ryan who did an amazing job being a waiter. Would totally eat there again.

    Allen Street Grill (ASG) is a wonderful place to have dinner in State College. I am a frequent visitor for both business and personal meals. I normally enjoy an elevated dining experience. This visit missed the mark. Will be back as anyone can have a bad day!

    Overall the food and service was excellent. The one tuna dish did not taste as fresh or like high-quality tuna. The other dishes which were a carrot soup, steak tartare and beet salad were amazing. The ambience as always was very nice.

    We so look forward to dining at Allen Street Grill every time we are in town to visit our son who works for Penn State Athletics. We literally plan our reservation around the PSU sports schedule and we ALWAYS ask for Table 10 with Kipp. He is incredible in that he always steers us in the right direction with the ever changing menu. It is like Christmas morning seeing the menu gifts the greet us when we dine.
