    Free Wi-Fi here works great but there's not many outlets. The friendly staff will let you charge up if you sit by the bar and use the wifi, though. Ask Moses, the manager, about his singing career! :)

    The place is a madhouse during football weekends and after the bars close but the signature grilled stickies and Mac-n-cheese are a must. Good prices and a fun crowd to hang around.

    A spot for a late night study break since it is open 24 hours. The grilled stickies á la mode or the Mac ‘n’ cheese are great at any time of day.

    A great inexpesive meal, whatever you get. I, too, recommend the mac-n-cheese (be sure to mix it up first; often sauce isn't evenly spread) and the Grilled Stickies. Be warned: even if you're seated

    The later in the evening it is, the better the food will be. Stick to breakfast foods if you want to branch away from the famous Mac and Cheese.

    This was the hang out of my generation after the bars..we carved our names into the tables, ate mac and cheese and stickie buns, A hint from me Never eat their scrambeled eggs. I used to cook there :(

    Grilled sticky buns with icecream are a must have for those visiting Happy Valley.

    If you like tzatziki, try the gyro omelette at this charmingly understaffed, open-all-night State College landmark.

    Don't spend time in state college without stopping at the diner for mac and cheese and a grilled sticky a la mode. Delicious and worth the sometimes slow service

    Go to the diner anytime after 10 p.m. They're open 24 hrs. Skip the anytime breakfast and induldge in a grilled sticky a la mode. PSU tradition!

    You have to get a grilled sticky. Service isn't to great today. Clearly many tables opened and we had to wait almost 15 minutes for someone to even ask how many we're in our party.

    Did we say grilled sticky buns? Great diner food, but the stickies alone are worth a stop Anytime of day or night.

    You haven't been here if you haven't had one of their grilled stickys.

    SLOW! Not even open 24/7. It's 11:50 on a Sunday and they "aren't serving lunch food" not near as much of a state college staple as it used to be. And my waiter just told me they are out of ham

    Service is slow so be sure to have time when you come in. The french toast is very tasty.

    Only at The Diner would they have you write your own order down and walk it back to the kitchen. No one comes here for the service.

    Not quite the same since I worked there (mid '90s) but still a good place to have a late night meal or to have a sticky.

    Worst dining experience ever. They forgot to put our order in TWICE.And when we politely asked for a discount the manager said we either pay full price or she calls the cops. I will not be going back!

    Grilled Stickies are the best with butter.

    Great grilled stickies, everything else I horrible. They're always understaffed, food takes forever, and some employees have attitudes.

    The service was the worst EVER!!!! It took 20 minutes to get a check when standing at the register and we never were even visited by the waitress during our stay of over an hour.

    The place can be empty, yet service will be slow. Good food, good price--Grilled Stickies, Mac&Cheese--but don't go if you're in a hurry to eat.

    From 3-7pm today you can get all you can eat mac and cheese!

    A lot of people whining about the service... apparently they don't realize this isn't the Tavern or Zola's. It's a diner. Get over it. Food is decent diner fare.

    Famous Mac and cheese had almost no flavor aside from the cheese melted atop it. Disappointing.

    Stay away Sunday mornings. Kids party and call off and the staff that's there just gives up. There's no AC and sweat is dripping off my body while I wait in line. Ugh
