I have eaten here a couple times, first just to give them another shot, second because it was such an excellent meal I had to make sure it wasn't a fluke. No, it's legitimately one of the best restaurants in Bellefonte, of not THE best with the Gamble Mill being closed. I would recommend this place for sure.

The food is fantastic. It was the best Reuben sandwich I've eaten. No lie. Give it a try. You won't be sorry

First time, a great experience. Hamburger, perfect medium rare, great taste. Fries seasoned with rosemary, different, delicious. Shared an appetizer of pirogies with sauerkraut and potato filling topped with browned onions. Best I've had since I was a child when my mom made them. Others had corned beef and Ahi Tuna sandwiches and raved about them. Will definitely go again,... More

Opening a business in the Bellefonte area and working my way around the local eating establishments. The Governor's Pub is on that list. The deep-fried portabellas are a wonderful addition to any meal. Good place to eat.

Great burgers, delicious herbed fries and creative cocktails. Cosy fireplace and excellent service. The only downside was a very loud table of screaming teens in the next room. The menu has a wide variety of entrees, from casual pub fare to complete dinners. Overall, a very good place I will definitely return to when in the area.

Lots of local brews! Need to work on a good NA. We had an excellent chili and sausage sandwich. Good heat in the chili and very tasty too. We hope to pass this way again

My husband and I visited The Governor's Pub twice. The first time we came for dinner. Dinner was great! We loved the turkey dinner plate and the seafood soup. Our waitress was super sweet and attentive! As new customers, she had great recommendations. Dinner had been so great we decided to pop in for a late lunch the next day.... More

The Reuben sandwich was truly the best I've ever had. The meat was not sliced as typically but was in more of a chunky pull-pork texture that fell apart in your mouth. The homemade pickles were incredible and the fries tasty - especially with malt vinegar!

Had the delicious pork chop dinner special. Prompt, fast service. Most meals are under $20. Plenty of seating in cozy atmosphere.
