The Dining Room at the Nittany Lion Inn

The Dining Room

Relax. You’re at The Dining Room at the Nittany Lion Inn, a Penn State tradition since 1931. The Dining Room is the perfect on-campus spot to get together with friends or family for a delicious meal. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, we feature signature American dishes (don’t miss our famous crab cakes!). Our second-to-none wine list has won the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence every year since 2002.

Make sure to check out The Dining Room’s popular Sunday Brunch, featuring waffles, omelets, carved meats, and so much more. Our bi-monthly wine pairing dinners, Tastes of the World, are each themed to a specific wine region, and guests can learn about the cuisines and wines of these regions while they wine and dine.

Join us on select weekends for Sea-Fare at The Inn, a Friday night buffet that features a delicious variety of fresh seafood dishes. Sea-Fare will be available during Arts Festival, home football games, and commencement weekends.

Make your next special occasion dinner or holiday meal unforgettable at The Dining Room. Reserve space for your group of family or friends. Or for an intimate dinner or romantic getaway, choose one of our cozy private rooms. No matter what the event, you’re sure to love our sumptuous selections and excellent service.

But why wait for a special occasion? We’re open every day for your dining pleasure. So this week, celebrate Tuesday night (or Wednesday, or Thursday . . .) at The Dining Room!
