“You learn a lot about someone when you share a meal together.” – Anthony Bourdain
Great memories can be both made relived around a good meal. When it comes to capping off a good day (or evening) of fishing, a cold beverage can be great. Sometimes you miss lunch or dinner if the fishing is good and you need to grab a bite when you come off the water late. Whether it’s something like a a great burger and beer at a restaurant (like the Grizzly Bar after fishing caddis on the Madison River until after dark) or simple, such as as frozen pizzas in the oven, food is an important part of any fishing trip.
It just so happens that we have some great places to eat around the State College/Bellefonte area! There are way too many good restaurants to name them all, but it’s worthwhile to highlight a few simply due to their proximity to the streams in the area.
Lower Spring Creek runs right through downtown Bellefonte, which is convenient. Some restaurants there include: The Governor’s Pub, State Burger Company, The Wok (Chinese), Maria’s, Axemann Brewery, Big Spring Spirits, Jim’s (a local favorite), Mamma Lucretia’s.
If you’re on the upper part of Spring Creek (Rock, Benner Springs), some places close by include Happy Valley Brewing Company, Brother’s Pizza (Benner Pike location), Kamrai Thai & Sushi, The American Alehouse, Otto’s Pub and Brewery.
Just because it’s not mentioned here doesn’t mean it isn’t worth checking out – explore what the area has to offer in terms of restaurants, bars, and breweries!
