This place has been here since I went to PSU back in the dianosaur age. The big, wooden booths and view of Colle Ave and Old Main can't be beat. The food is also great with generous portions.

If you have the time, pass this place, it is highly overrated. Regular American food, nothing special, and there are usually lines.

The food was delicious. I had the southwest turkey sandwich and my husband had a burger. The waitress was a little slow, but it was a nice spot for lunch while visiting Penn State.

Was there last year with a couple of friends on a football weekend. Surprisingly, the wait wasn't long and the food was worth the wait. I had the peanut butter burger, just because I couldn't not try it. It was GREAT. My buddies had pizza and wings and they both said everything was great. Prices are hard to beat.

Thank you for providing feedback from your recent trip to the Corner Room. We're glad you enjoyed the food and service. FYI ...

Always bring my family here for good meal where you won't go broke. The food is good and the people are so Nice. Penn State pride is always on display. It is in the heart of town and everyone goes there. Nothing like Happy Valley ❤️
