Definitely the best steak in town. Always very willing to accommodate my gluten free needs and have done so without issue several times. The waitresses and waiters are generally great, but the staff at the door can be questionable at times.

I just had my mother over to Texas Roadhouse in St. College to treat her here for her birthday and we left there hungry! We were seated, waited 20 minutes and still were not waited on. Other people were being seated and waited on right away. So, I took my mother to Outback Steakhouse right next door. We were waited... More

Our family always meets at this restaurant to celebrate two birthdays that are just a few days apart due to its central location from both houses. The food and service are always top notch here. Never have we had a complaint regarding either. Rarely is there a wait so that's always a plus as well. Very laid back atmosphere with... More

The finest "franchised" steaks in town. Always order the prime rib and have never been disappointed. Good portion size and sides are varied and well prepared.

Located just off I-992 @ Waddle Road exit State College, PA. We arrived at 6:45 PM. We were seated promptly by a hostess. We were pleased with the good service, fun casual atmosphere and excellent food. We look forward to our next visit.

Never been disappointed with the meals here, actually, we were once and they made us a completely new meal with all the sides, etc. Completely went out of their way to make it right! Always crowded- call ahead seating for large groups works well.

If you enjoy loud music blaring while you are eating, you will like Texas Roadhouse State College. Very difficult to carry on a conversation with others at your table. Aside from that, the steak was very good and prepared as ordered, and the beer was ice cold. In my opinion, not worth the wait.
