Spats at the Grill (Hotel State College)
Executive Chef: Robert Burger
General Manager: Becky Burger
The food here is simply delicious and cooked to perfection.
Spats at the Grill is our go-to choice when entertaining out of town guests. The food is always great and the service is excellent.
Reliable food, service, and atmosphere. Close to theatre.
Great food, seated by the window, excellent service, Chris was a great server! Very nice dinner with friends!
Met Granddaughter for lunch. Great service and food. Nice view of PSU campus.
Service was excellent, cocktails were excellent, food was hot and served in a timely manner but was ok not excellent.
Can't beat the ambiance. Service was very good. Food was very good.
Had an 8:30 reservation and got seated at 9:00. Booth was too small for 4 people. Food was good but not great. Overall experience was good. Server (Sadia ???) was very nice and helpful with food selection. Food pricing was reasonable for selections and location.
Excellent service, friendly reception, quality food, great view of downtown State College on the porch, clean and neat.
Every part of the evening was well done. Service was outstanding. All courses came out at the correct time. Food was excellent. Splendid experience
Food delivery was slow. Soups were very tasty but could have been hotter. Server was very attentive and good. Chopped salad was delicious.
The Voodoo BBQ Shrimp and Scallops are out of this world amazing!!!
The waiter was very good. The Cajun food was not very spicy. we had to ask for a bottle of sirarchi to spice up the Jambalaya to what I'd normally expect for a Cajun meal.
It was my 21st birthday, and my family—as well as our waitress—made it one of the most pleasant experiences, as always. I’ll never stop coming in. Thank you!
Good food and exceptional service. Cool atmosphere!
We were disappointed. They tried to sit us at a table that was on top of another table - we suggested and helped to move the table over a few feet. Then they delivered the wrong drinks. A table nearby sat unbussed for at least a half an hour. Finally, our food came out warm-ish. Meh.
Love the ambiance and food! Great service!
just awesome! Food, service, ambience! Great time! We Are!!!
Under-staffed this particular weeknight. Food was ok. Very spicy tuna salad. Crab bisque was excellent. Very noisy and crowded. Food used to be better at Spats.
Great location overlooking College Ave. Staff was very accommodating in slightly adjusting our reservation on a very busy home game weekend.
Our server was wonderful! He knew the group that was there was loud and that we were there for our anniversary. So he put us as far away but still in the requested area from the loud group.
The food was good too. Just the server went above and beyond.
It is not wheelchair accessible. I had a hard time because of a foot injury, getting up the stairs. Beautiful historic place though.
Beautiful view of downtown by the windows. The peanut butter pie was great!
Really nice and not too crowded. Severer was great.
Went to Spats while visiting my son at PSU. We got a great seat by the window and the food was really good - especially our dessert bananas foster (made with Penn State stickies).
Although they were busy, service was lacking. I had to walk to the bar to get another drink, since the server rarely stopped back to see if we needed anything. More money would have been spent on more drinks and food but thought it best to just leave. Nothing else outweighed the lack of service so the overall experience was just ok.
Thank you for helping t make a difficult day end happily! The food was good, but Chad was incredibly accommodating. We felt cared for in every way! We live in Valley Forge, but will be back next time we are in the area!
Easiest place in State College to host a nice dinner with a group. Our food took a long time and when it finally arrived it was clearly sitting under a heat lamp for too long. The jambalaya I ordered was dry... didn't resemble jambalaya
The food is consistently good. The service was acceptable. The location is perfect to meet friends for dinner. The menu has a wide range from soups, salads and sandwiches, up to excellent entrees. Surely there is something for everyone! I'll be back.
Spats at the Grill is on the site of the old Allen Street Grill. I preferred the Allen Street menu, but I continue to like this location. It's situated on a busy corner across the street from the campus. The view is great (especially towards evening) and the atmosphere is comfortable.
In its new incarnation, the prices are a bit high in relation to quality -- but the good is generally good and the location still makes this a worthy stop.
Friendly and knowledgeable staff (thanks Kip, Adam, and Rob); love the location. Vegan options are nice. Definitely our "happy place!"
Fantastic experience. Table was ready at exact reservation time. Food was excellent (Fettucini Alfredo with blackened salmon, shrinp and scallops, almond chicken, "hot" mac and cheese, Hummus app! ). Drink pours were generous. The service was outstanding. The mac and cheese turned out to be too spicy for my wife and they immediately replaced it with almond chicken - no questions asked - no extra charge. This is a first class dining experience. You will love it!!!
Seated in the window over looking the main walkway to PENN State campus. Server was great, food was super....a truly enjoyable experience!
Dirty glass, food wasn’t that great! Really noisy you could hardly talk to the person at your own table.
Wasn’t like the old spats.
Great setting, overlooking College Avenue in State College. Tender Gator Bite appetizers. Good service. Highly recommended.
Food was flavorful but did seem a little expensive for the area!
We were pleasantly surprised at SPATS. The food was great and the service was excellent!
We had a wonderful dinner at Spats. The food was great and we could hear each other talk. Our waitress was very professional and efficient. Thank you for a great place.
Waitstaff friendly and fast. Ambiance good. Food tasty but one item was a little cold but good taste.
I love this restaurant- my favorite in State College.
Service is always great- food is delicious.
