Hello, We went to the TR for a good stake after commencement festivities... we struggled with aloof greeters that could have cared less if anyone in the restaurant was properly served or seated. The place is Loud! There is little to absorb the sound so...More

Good place to have a casual dinner or to celebrate with friends. Their stakes are pretty good and pretty inexpensive (for a stake). Good selection of sides. Not very good for big groups of people due to layout of the tables.

The service I receive here is always good. The steaks are delicious and so are the appetizers. The drinks from the bar are also wonderful but a little pricey.

I have been there 4 times so far and I lave the place. The foods, drinks as well as lovely staff and the authentic atmosphere and decoration makes it one of my favourite restaurants in State College. The steaks are marinated and cooked to perfection....More

Food good, not real hot. Steak cooked exactly as ordered. Friendly waitress. My big complaints are the Birthday singing (way too loud) and most of the Texas Roadhouse's I've been in are not the cleanest places. Price wasn't bad for food.

Texas-sized rib-eye steak with grilled shrimp was primo! Sat at the bar and the gal was courteous and attentive. Free app from VIP program made it even better!!

This place is great! I love their blooming onion and their sirloin was great! Definitely need reservations during eventful weekends because you definitely can't walk in.

We were hungry for steak and had good experiences with other places, so decided to stop. This one wasn't as overwhelmingly noisy as a few others we have visited, and the steaks were done oerfectly! Service was fast and drinks were cold and tasty. Will...More

Definitely the best steak in town. Always very willing to accommodate my gluten free needs and have done so without issue several times. The waitresses and waiters are generally great, but the staff at the door can be questionable at times.

When you ask a question to Trip Advisor, it doesn't go to the establishment, it goes to people who have written reviews, so as a Roadhouse customer, here is my answer: Yes, Texas Roadhouse serves a number of chicken items... More
