    I think of we were going out for drinks and had food or would be great, but without the drink it wasn't particularly inspired. Still good, and a nice evening.

    Waitress was very nice and attentive. Cocktails were good. Had appetizers and mains, portions were nice but food was salty and greasy. The schnitzel was soft and not real crispy because of the grease.

    Our Olde New York experience was perfect as always. Good food, good service and moderate prices. We also got a table that accommodated my mobility issues and a staff members turned the fire place on - just for us. The only issue we have is that it gets loud at dinner time. A late lunch is a better choice for a meeting with friends.

    The food was great. I was there with my daughters visiting one of them at PSU. We had peirogies and the Bavarian pretzel to start. Both were delicious. I had the Weisswurst platter and really enjoyed it. One of my girls had the corned beef deli board which really flavorful. My other daughter had the chicken parm and loved it. I had the kostritzer schwartzbier - super! Our waitress was super busy but appropriately apologied for a delay at the beginning. Overall great experience-we’ll be back.

    Food was really good! We had the pretzel appetizer and it was delicious! My husband and I both ordered schnitzel dishes that were completely different from one another and loved both of them! We had never tried schnitzel before. The potato pancakes are a must! Glad we found this restaurant. Service was a little slow and it was noisy since it’s open to the bar area, but we have three kids, so it’s a good place for families. Would definitely return!

    We had a very pleasant experience at Olde New York. The food was delicious. The pretzel appetizer was cooked to perfection, crispy outside and soft on the inside. We enjoyed both the cheese and spicy mustard dipping sauces. My hamburger was cooked just right. It was juicy and delicious. The bun was perfectly toasted. My Penn State student thoroughly enjoyed the sauerkraut covered brat. The service was friendly and timely. All around a great meal, will be making a return visit.

    I probably won’t be back. They brought my soup late and I asked them if my dinner was coming out soon that I didn’t want the soup. The waiter said “oh no it’s not ready”. Soup arrived and so did dinner. Nothing peeves me more than having both served at the time.

    Ok. We had German food. The Spaetzle was fine. The red cabbage was fine, a little too sweet for my taste, but fine. The schnitzel was not fine. The breading was a gloppy mess. The Bavarian sauce tasted like BBQ sauce from a bottle. Very disappointing to say the least. Oh, and the meat and cheese tray was a joke, especially at $14. A couple of cheap crackers from a box. A couple of pieces of generic cheddar cheese cut from a block and a couple of pieces of lunch meat. For an $80 lunch, go somewhere else.

    The food was good however, it was super busy so the service was average. Also, it is very noisy so if your looking for peace and quiet this not the place to go. They are also in need of busboys to help clean tables. There pretzels and salads are good and so are their drinks.

    I have eaten here many many times and I have to say that this time was very disappointing I thought it would be a very good dinner, and while it was alright, it wasn't up to the usual standards. The biggest complaint I had was that my Reuben/Rachel (with turkey instead of the traditional corned beef)--always delicious and a favorite of mine--was not at all like it has always been. This is usually a huge sandwich stacked with lots of turkey, Swiss cheese and sauerkraut, along with a Russian dressing that is yummy. This time, though, it was a slim few pieces of meat, very little cheese and sauerkraut--just enough to get a little bit of flavor--and hardly any sauce. It was dry and the meat etc. didn't even extend to the corners of the bread. I ordered potato salad as my side, and it was very tasty as expected. Now, I will say the place was very busy with a crowd watching college football in the bar area, even though the big game of the day had ended an hour and a half earlier. The service was very good, and our server did her best to keep up in a timely manner, so no complaints there. I was there with my brother and family, expecting this place I suggested because of the excellent food to live up to that reputation. So, maybe this was just a one-off night...I surely hope so!

    This is a great little sports bar/restaurant in State College area. I like that they had some german fare on the menu. One my fave german dishes is curry wurst. They give a good portion for an appetizer with fries. It was loud because of the NFL games and the servers were busy. However, our food came out quick and hot. The sandwiches were big and the desserts were delicious too. All in all, good bar food and inexpensive. We had apps, sandwiches and dessert for about 70 bucks.
