The Knickerbocker Tavern is a nice neighborhood pub. They have a large selection of beers on tap. And a large menu of pub food. The service is friendly. A good place for a group get-together.

Went to dinner with intown and out of town family members. Really enjoyed the ambiance of the Knick. We sat outside and had a fun evening. Food was good and fairly priced.

This restaurant received good reviews and a unique location (historical place)- not to mention, an extensive beer selection, so we decided to try it while stopping overnight in town. The food was good and plentiful. Paper plates for a shared appetizer and baskets for our sandwich/fries. The beer selection was great. Our waitress was not very attentive and quite forgetful,...

Depending what you like and the atmosphere you prefer, this bar is a good place. It is mostly made up of a wealthier, preppy crowd with higher prices than your average bar, but for the most part it's a good bar. Great food and good entertainment at times.

Haven't been to the Knickerbocker in years. Food & atmosphere was decent but feels like my cluttered, dusty grandmother's house--will not be returning soon.

Stopped in for dinner after seeing Horseshoe Curve and loved it! Great beer selection, full bar, good food. They just added a nice patio in the back if you rather sit outside. Parking is across the street, left of the building.

It may not look like much, but that's part of the charm. They have great soups. During the summer months they have a nice outdoor seating area. Always been happy with The Knickerbocker!

Stopped in for some late evening drinks and grub. Sat outside in the Kourtyard, and practically had the place to ourselves, which was nice. The food was delicious, as always, and Heather M's excellent service made it a very pleasant visit. See you again soon!

The Knick is a neighborhood bar that reminds me of Cheers; there always seems to be a group of regulars. It's a good place to have a few drinks after a game in the nearby Mansion Park or after any occasion. It can get very crowded late in the evening so plan accordingly.

I have wanted to try The Knick for awhile, but I don't get to Altoona much. Finally had the chance and it is now one of my favorite pubs in the world. Go here. I could go on about the historic building, the vintage charm, the homegrown hops, but let me get to the basics. Go here. The beer list... More
