Menu looked good online and reviews pretty good but we were not happy with Corner Room. My entree salad was on a small plate and no flavor, just your basic pizza shop salad but smaller. We ordered 4 other meals and all were below average....More

It's all about getting a booth by the window which we did for our late lunch, everything else is secondary. The philly cheese steak was good, the cheesesteak club was fine. The chocolate shake was terrible....but we loved being here.

The Corner Room is a classic restaurant serving food up to students, locals, and visitors. Great location right on College Avenue. Stick with the classics like a turkey club, burger, or sandwiches, and you'll enjoy a classic and inexpensive meal here.

Went here for the very first time and I intend to go here every time I am at Penn State. Fast service, great food at a reasonable price. The food is cooked to perfection, but save room for desert .

This is a really good place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Service was exemplary, and I particularly recommend the yoghurt, at breakfast.
