The Governor's Pub (Bellefonte, PA)
211 West High Street, Bellefonte, PA 16823, T: 814-353-1008
By accident we stumble upon Bellefonte, Pennsylvania, which is a quaint town in the middle of nowhere with an old, rustic downtown. We find The Governor’s Pub, a both modern and traditional pub-like restaurant. The menu is built around a fairly classic fare, but with an original twist: burgers, pub classics, sandwiches, salads.
I order the favorite, the Robert Walker Ruben ($8.50). It is a classic Ruben: toasted marble rye, tender corned beef, a fairly light sauce, and cabbage: very tasty! It comes with their Fresh Cut Fries, which are clearly double fried, perfectly crispy, and sprinkled with kosher salt and thyme: some of the best fries I have had in the US (and I am a traditionalist!). M. has the James Beaver Chicken Salad, which is fresh, and the chicken is juicy, but overall uneventful.
The Governor's Pub is the kind of place I love; unassuming and serving regular fare but with exceptional quality. Do NOT miss out on their fresh cut fries!
