Central Reservation: A new ambiance to Downtown State College

Central Reservation opened their doors this August and have been serving the State College community a unique selection of seafood and fine cocktails.

Located on the corner of South Allen Street and Beaver Avenue, it’s at the heart of downtown bringing a different character to the neighborhood.

Currently, its hours of operation are:

Monday – Friday: 4pm -11pm (or later)
Saturday: 12pm-11pm (or later)
Sunday: 12pm-7pm

These are subject to change as the business adapts to the new COVID-19 regulations.

With the menu including raw bar items, appetizers, salads, sandwiches and entrees, Central Reservation certainly offers an authentic vibe inside, with unique decor and food. Tim Riefel, co-partner of Central Reservation, hopes the new restaurant will attract a diverse crowd saying “we felt that it was the right time to offer something a little bit more diverse, rather than simply just a lot of whiskey, and classic cocktails, we wanted to expand into more of like a tiki theme”.

With the seafood locally sourced, Central Reservation is hoping to spread the community love and create a refreshing ambiance.

Per Governor Wolf’s orders, the restaurant will only be selling alcohol to customers who buy food.
