My favorites, in no particular order
Boiling Springs Tavern
1 East 1st Street
Boiling Springs, PA 17007-9601
1832 Federal style tavern in a charming little town. Has both an upscale dining room and food at the bar. From there, pop over to Rt 233 through the Michaux Forest. You can thank me later.
19 Main Street
Wellsboro, Pennsylvania 16901
Old school diner. Waitresses assured me there are no calories in the chili dogs and fries. A quick ride to the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania at Leonard Harrison State Park.
Jean Bonnet Tavern
6048 Lincoln Highway
Bedford, PA 15522
Historic, 18th century tavern off of the excellent Rt 30, just west of Bedford. Not far from the Flight 93 Memorial. And try Rt 26 south of Everett.
Appalachian Brew Pub
401 Buford Ave.
Gettysburg, PA 17325
Just west of Gettysburg, right next to Robert E. Lee's headquarters. Appalachian also has other brew pubs in Harrisburg and Camp Hill. And their beers are superb.
89 Steinwehr Avenue (Business Route 15 South)
Gettysburg, PA 17325
1776 tavern in the heart of Gettysburg.
U.S. Rt 30
Abbottstown, PA 17301
Get your Bavarian on, just east of Gettysburg on Rt. 30.
Prudhomme's Lost Cajun Kitchen
50 Lancaster Avenue
Columbia, PA 17512
Very nice place run by a nephew of Paul Prudhomme. In Columbia, right off of Rt 30 between York and Lancaster. Check out the clock museum.
Denny's Beer Barrel Pub
1452 Woodland Road
Clearfield, PA 16830
When you're in the mood for a six lb. burger. Huge menu.
16 North Pitt Street
Carlisle, PA 17013
A Belgian cafe in small town Pennsylvania! Can't go wrong with mussels from Brussels (along with hand cut fries and mayo or the cafe's own catsup).
Elk Creek Caf?® + Aleworks
100 West Main Street
Millheim, PA 16854
A hidden gem in an unlikely place. The walleye is to die for.
8448 Rt. 104
Mt. Pleasant Mills, PA 17853
Food is OK--nothing special--but it's a fun little place.
Doan's Bones BBQ
3507 McAlevy's Fort Road
Petersburg PA 16669
Pretty good for Yankee BBQ. Just off the very nice Rt. 26 between State College and Huntingdon.
Market Cross Pub
113 North Hanover Street, Carlisle, PA 17013-2422
English style pub in my home town. Huge beer selection (if you're riding pillion).
Forksville General Store and Restaurant
Forksville, PA 18616
Big Mike's South Philly specialties, across the covered bridge off of the excellent Rt. 154
Mount Nittany Inn
559 N. Pennsylvania Avenue
Centre Hall, PA 1682
A bit upscale, near State College.
