The Autoport is another excellent location in State College where you can enjoy both a full bar and the sitdown meal with friends.
I prefer beers to mixed drinks myself, and they have an excellent selection Try the Late Harvest that is on tap right now. (If you read my reviews I like flavorful beers).
There is both inside and outside seating available with plenty of space.
With a happy hour that ends at 7 and rotating half price food specials all day it is a great place to meet up for both social and business event.
Try both their signature burgers and pizza you can't go wrong.
