The Governor's Pub

Reviewed By travelingsteve55 - Richboro, Pennsylvania

We came here on a cold rainy night after a Penn State win. It’s a homey kind of place with some different local craft beers and dinners that include chicken pot pie and Shepard’s pie. They also have sandwiches and apps. I had the onion soup which was a little creamier thanks the typical but good and a daily special which was ta Turkey burger. The chief had the shephard pie and our friends had the Arctic char that came with a ton of pasta and my friend had the chicken pot pie which was huge.
Will go back!

Cool Beans Coffee and Tea

Reviewed By Kolivo

Pick up some realty good coffee recommended by the friendly staff. The ambiance is eclectic but not tacky. The selection of coffee is amazing. The only negative is that they didn't have all the ingredients to make an advertised sandwich. However the substitution was good and well presented.

Dam Donuts

We offer our customers a variety of different donuts. We also offer our customers the chance to customize their own donuts their way. Our donuts are smaller than typical donuts which means customers purchase more than one at a time! Our modest sized donut garnished with icings, drizzles, and toppings, allow the customer to en

Great place to stop for delicious donuts with amazing array of toppings. Perfect for kids - they love to choose from all the creations including a donut that has little fish on a sea of bright blue water representing the "dam". We had a variety of donuts and all were absolutely divine! I had iced coffee as well which was great - a little too good because I drank it all down in just a few sips! Will definitely go back if I am in the area again!

The Blonde Bistro

The Blonde Bistro is owned and operated by chef Ciara Semack. This restaurant is a short drive off interstate 80 and is in the heart of downtown Bellefonte. All items are made to order from scratch. Homemade bread, pasta sauces, and chef created dishes really make this a place to try.

Family lunch — everything was good! Fairly extensive menu. Soup of the day was stuffed pepper- very hearty, glad I only got a cup. Salad was extraordinary: large bowl of very fresh greens and veggies, homemade Italian dressing. Hubs said his stromboli was best ever...MoreThank you for taking the time to wright this review! We are so glad you enjoyed the pepper soup! We make our homemade tea each and everyday because we go through it so fast! Thank you again for your review and kind words!

Mamma Lucrezia's Pizzeria and Italian Restaurant

Fine Italian Dining.

Reviewed By Michael M - Bellefonte, Pennsylvania

Well...since TripAdvisor only allows one review of the same restaurant in a month, I'll have to combine my last two reviews. We had a gift card for Olive Garden from Christmas we had to use up, so we ate there last night. I would have rather lost out on the money...yeesh!

I'm still trying to move on through this menu and have been able to knock two more off my list... The Pescaitore Linguini and the Chicken Marsala. These will be shirt reviews since its been a while since we ate there.

Pescaitore Linguini was pretty darn awesome. I like the sauce but it's just not as good as her vodka sauce...total addiction to that. All cooked to perfection and plenty to eat. 5 stars!

Chicken Marsala...good but different than others make. I've always had the chicken on the pasta and the Marsala over both. This dish comes with the Marsala on one side and a pasta with marinara on the other. Nice way to gather both tastes on the same plate. Good portions, good taste, just different than I'm used to. 4 stars.

My wife had the Chicken Marsala pizza at the same time so we swapped a little...chicken Marsala for chicken Marsala, lol. Another great pizza and my wife enjoyed both dishes. 5 stars.

So that 4.7 stars round to 5 for these two previous meals. I'm finally caught up so we can go again, lol.

Trip Advisor really needs to change how often we can go to a restaurant. When you find something you love, why change?

We first thought this was going to be a German restaurant from the online menu. We were disappointed to see only wings and pizza once we arrived. Hot wings were terribly hot. Waitress did warn us but they were still much worse than expected. Cheese sticks were acceptable. Avoid if you want a German dinner but fine if you only want beer and pizza
