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.

The staff is very welcoming and are attentive. Even when they are busy they are smiling and friendly. Food was at and above the standard of the franchise. I would go out of my way to go back when in the area.

We called ahead for seating and was told that there was a 45-50 minute wait. We arrived 20 minutes early and found three seats at the bar by luck. The place was packed and a little louder than i would have liked but that was a minor negative. We ordered drinks and my first beer arrived with something floating in... More

We ate here 9/14. We used the call ahead service they provide and I would recommend it so you don't have to stand in line forever. We told them that a person in our party was using a walker and they were very accommodating. They made sure we were seated at a table that was easy for him to get... More

Very good selections of raw cuts that you could pick by yourselves before entering your table. Cooked to perfection and served with a nice glass of wine. We would have appreciated if it was possible to get the steaks with garlic butter or pepper source, etc...

Thank SweFam
