Duffy's Tavern built in 1819 ~ Boalsburg, PA.

Click the photos to enlarge.

This is Duffy's Tavern in Boalsburg, Pa. just four miles from State College( Penn State ). The Tavern was built in 1819 and was once a stage coach stop way back when.
The second floor was once used as a ballroom. The stone walls are 22 inches thick.

One of the dining areas in the tavern.

This is my favorite spot in Duffy's Tavern. Look at that stairway ~ I love it !

An abundance of ambiance and atmosphere surround you while dining here along with good food at a reasonable price.

Low doorways. This gentleman is 6' tall.

The drawer shown under the window was once used as a cash drawer.

The drawer underneath the cupboard had also been used as a cash drawer.

I took these photos today while dining here. The grilled chicken salad was so big I couldn't eat all of it ! The menu is varied ~ from soups to salads, burgers, speciality sandwiches, and also seafood, steak and chicken entrees. There is also a bar if you may want to imbibe.

Eating here is a very pleasant dining experience and the wait staff was very friendly.
