A very nice, slightly upscale restaurant in Bellefonte. Located in an old mill and the inside of the building is very homey and cozy. There is a bar and plenty of tables. They have about 4 regulars, 2 seasonals, and a rotating Belgian. The beers are pretty standard- nothing crazy but enough to satisfy you. The food is really good- the crispy pork belly was excellent. They seem to have frequent special events and musical guests. Overall, good beer, high quality food, definitely a place to visit just off I-80.

The resteraunt/brewery is located in an old mill in the town of Bellerfonte. The building is very old and impressive for its usage and architecture. The atmposhere is that of a old style resteraunt that has seating throughout both levels and the bar in the bottom level. The quality of the beers were slightly above average (of the 5 beers I sampled) and were an session ale, pale ale, raspberry wheat ale, witbier, and a marzen. The service from the bartender was good as she was covering the bar and the tables surrounding and was very attentive. The selection of the beers was good as they had a nice mix of the beers they were serving. Typcially, they carry 6-7 taps of in house stuff and liquors. The beer was very drinkable and for the most part would appeal to the masses. The food was great as they have many sandwiches/burgers in the 7-10 dollar range and dinner entrees in the 17-20 dollar range. I had a burger (buffalo meat) and it was cooked very well.

Housed in an historic mill, the place is comfortable and has a nice ambiance.
Service was friendly, though not overly attentive.
The food was excellent. I took the recommendation of a previous reviewer and tried the meatloaf sandwich, which was awesome.
Nice selection of house beers. The IPA was good and they were featuring a house Doppelbock as the seasonal, which I might try before heading out.
Probably not worth a special trip but certainly worth the slight detour if you’re traveling the I-80 corridor.

The Gamble Mill is located in a historic building, complete with creaking stairs, jagged wood edges, etc. Where can you still find dedicated hot and cold faucets? This place had local artwork along the walls, all for sale and proudly on display. The house beers were pretty good, and the food was phenomenal. I had a meatloaf sandwich, and the meat was tender and juicy, just short of falling apart. The prices are very good. This should be a stop on anyone’s Pennsylvania I-80 beer tour.

Thanks be to Uncle Lew for informing us about this place. The bar is located in the basement of an old mill. The decor is inviting, full of dark woods, wooden ceiling beams, and stone walls. The samplers were much bigger than I was expecting (8 ounces). On Sunday they have a very limited menu. They seem a bit short staffed as everyone seems to be scrambling. They dont really do big beers here as the biggest is a 6.7. I thought their hoppier beers were the most satisfying.I like the fact that they don’t do a ton of styles since it gives the hope that beers will continue to improve. The location isn’t convenient but I’ll keep an eye on the ratings for this place.

Except for the addition of a brew house, this place hadn’t changed since the last time I visited for dinner in 2003. We’d go here a couple of times of year for a special dinner while in grad school. Great old mill, nice menu. Not too pricey for the area, but not the cheapest eats in town. The beers were solid, and I was particularly impressed with the farmhouse ale. Great service.

An absolutely beautiful old building with lots of character. The bar area is a bit small. 4 taps of their own beer and a couple of guest taps of varying quality. Food is pricey but very well done. Staff is fairly knowledgeable and service is ok.

Have visited the Gamble Mill many times prior to their conversion to a brewpub and always enjoyed the atmosphere, the service and the food. A standup job all around. Fortunately, all of these elements are just as strong, with the wonderful addition of fresh beer brewed on the premise. I think the beers are very hit and miss, but the hoppier examples are really solid and reasonably priced. This is a new, great addition to a growing stronger beer scene and makes up for the sad decline of Otto’s since its poor choice of expansion.
