Last dinner at Spatz and the end of an era at PSU State College with the restaurant closing. And I think it was our best dinner ever. We will miss you Spatz! Lots of great dinners and fun times there over many many years. ‘Hope the staff finds their next job soon - thank you all!!

Great place that I am sad to see leaving the area. We regret not going more often, but when a lease is up, it is up.

There's not another restaurant in State College that serves this type of food. We'll miss it.
