Ate lunch at Champs. The selections were good and the food was good, however the service was very slow for a lunchtime service. We entered the building at 11:40AM and left at 1:20PM. The main reason was due to the long wait for our lunches which there was only two of us and probably about 15 other people in the... More

I like champs (Altoona) they have good food and drinks. They have really good apps and subs. I get the Italian or the Cajun chicken cheese steak they are the best. My wife loves the bookmaker and we both love the harlicy wings they are way better than their mild. They have a nice beer selection too.

I'm a "regular" and that is because of the People and the Food. Special Requests are never denied from a very Efficient and Friendly Staff! Not to mention the great atmosphere!! Not your typical Sports Bar...definitely a few steps above! Order the Steak Dinner sometime, unbelievably good! I prefer the Nachos and a Wine most nights, but all things A... More

The food was good but no different than any other restaurant. The staff was very friendly. A bunch of TVs make it easy to watch from any table.

Haven't been here for six months or so as the food and service wasn't very impressive. Stopped in a few days ago and realized awesome service followed with some stellar food from the kitchen. Can't say enough about this visit as they were very accommodating!

We had driven from Washington DC and we're staying at the Hampton inn a few feet from the restaurant. It was a little cold and snowy and did not want to drive far for dinner. So we walked from the hotel to Champs. Lots of energy inside with people and music....so far so good. And a lot of great beer... More

A group of 8 of us ate there before heading out to a football game. Fast friendly service. Large portions. No-one went away hungry. Great atmosphere. Enjoyed watching football games while we were there. Food was inexpensive. Was surprised how low our bill was. Would definitely eat there again.

Great place to grab some food and beer. The beer menu is great and geared for the beer snob !!! Easily located right off the highway for a quick grab and go. The restaurant is very industrial inside and has a great atmosphere. I would highly recommend the reuben and any of the local beers on tap such as Otto's... More
