I think, at least until proven otherwise, if you want a really good gourmet burger in State College, The Field at Toftrees is the place to go. Sure, Kelly’s Bison Burger is delicious, but its the only fancy burger there. At The Field, you have an entire menu of burgers, not just one. We came on a Tuesday evening, and……had to wait! Can you believe it? Waiting for a table for two on a TUESDAY ?!? Unheard of. I take this a good sign that The Field is not just a weekend place, and not just for visitors who are staying at Toftrees. Our wait, wasn’t too long and we ended up with a table situated close to the fireplace and next to a window.
Another great thing about The Field, is their beer menu. It features not only beers from PA, but it rotates the selections with the seasons so there is always something new (and good) to try. They also have a wine and cocktail menu that utilizes local products such as Big Spring and Tait Farm.
