Food & Service was great. We had a hard time finding a time when we could visit while trying to visit the other destinations with our passport, but truly understand. We really enjoyed our visit. Food portions were generous and delicious.

Great setting, looking out the front window onto the square at downtown Millheim, with Amish buggies going by . . . a perfect blue sky June evening. Food great, service excellent. I heartily recommend the Elk Creek Copper Ale . . .

For dinner, lunch, or brunch, the Elk Creek Cafe is a wonderful place. The food is great & carefully prepared (fresh ingredients expertly cooked). And they provide the best & most thoughtful service in the entire area of Centre County, not just Penns Valley. Everyone is very kind. We know this well, as we lived in State College for two decades and moved to Millheim a year ago. We now eat at the Elk Creek Cafe once a week. After all this time, we can confidently say that no restaurant in State College, or in the entire County, is as consistently good and offers such a pleasant & friendly experience as the Elk Creek Cafe does.

LOVED attending trivia night with Jay for the first time!!!! Beer of course was delicious--disappointed in my burrito--had to hunt to find the teeny pieces of mushroom and asparagus in lots of rice..... Monica was exceptional as always, as was Linda!! Our favorite place =) =)

asked for rare burger, got slightly pink only. burger too small for bun. bun got soggy quickly; try putting lettuce between bun and burger on both sides. the tomato was a disappointing tasteless winter tomato; you can find much better tasting, altho admittedly smallish winter tomato in the stores now, for the last 2-3 years. the pickles are great!

Our dining experience on Saturday, January 8, 2022, was a 10 as always. Our server was Amanda. She is exceptional as a server. She is very attentive and and helpful. We have had Amanda serve us previously and she always goes above and beyond with attention to any requests we have made. The beer is among our favorite craft brews and the food is a delightful diversion from the usual "pub fare" that is offered at so many local establishments. We appreciate the varied menu. Cannot think of anything that needs improvement at this time. Thank you for a great brew house and restaurant! Nancy and Quig Stump Bellefonte
