Grace at the Carnegie
As you enter the dining room through the French doors from the library, a feeling of warmth and elegance beckons you to enjoy leisurely modern trending dining. A bow window allows dinner guests to view the beautiful flowers that surround Carnegie Inn & Spa and the woods surrounding the golf course. China, crystal, and silver grace the tables on crisp white table linen. Servers are attentive in providing for the needs of the guests who dine on trend-setting cuisine.
From breakfast to elegantly prepared hors d'oeuvres and dinner selections, dining at Carnegie Inn & Spa is as spectacular as it is relaxing. The Library invites casual conversation while savoring a favorite cocktail or glass of wine from the Wine Spectator award winning selection.

Loved the atmosphere. Excellent food.
Wonderful dinner - compliments to the chef - but the decor is unbelievably, almost humorously, awful. I usually could care less about that aspect but what we have here is a style mix of stodgy men's club and funeral home parlor. 🙂
Great table. Delicious food. Excellent service.
Dawn and Toni are very professional and personable.
We were just wanting to have a fine dinning experience. We were not disappointed.
Excellent meal and atmosphere. Loved s'mores out at the fire pit for dessert.
Lovely table set up. Attentive service. Nice menu selection. Pricing is high but you receive high quality for your money.
We were a group of 6 celebrating my husband’s milestone birthday. I had called ahead to see if I could bring a celebratory pie from an outside bakery and have the restaurant cut into six pieces and place on plates with a scoop of the restaurant’s ice cream, acknowledging that I would obviously pay for the accompanying ice cream. I was told it was not a problem at all. When I received the bill at the conclusion of the meal, I saw the restaurant had charged $36 for the service of cutting the pie and then $27 for the 6 small scoops of ice cream. They didn’t even warm the pie but charged me $63 for the service of cutting the pie into 6 slices and adding a single small scoop of ice cream to for a pie that had cost $15. It would have been great if the “no problem” they had responded with in answer to my inquiry 2 weeks before had included a heads-up of the $63 charge so it wouldn’t have been such a surprise, especially given we had just spent $480 on our meal and drinks. The surcharge plus tax and tip brought the total bill to $550 and felt like an odd, uncalled for money grab, putting a sour note on an otherwise fantastic celebration.
Perfect Easter brunch!
Everything was so delicious.
Excellent service and quality food, definitely recommend it.
Needed to get out of the house.
From the time we entered the lobby, entire staff was attentive and helpful. The food and service was what we expected from our previous visits
Wonderful birthday dinner. We really enjoyed a beautiful evening.
Very professional and personable. Perfect for a night out.
People living close to this restaurant are very lucky. Elegant ambiance, superb food beautifully presented by skilled servers. My wife and I are relocating from Florida and we plan to be frequently enjoying this fine restaurant.
Absolutely fabulous experience at GRACE. Stayed at the Inn for a Mother/Daughter spa weekend and the highlight was our dinner! From the outstanding service, wine selection to amazing food from bread to dessert - treat yourself to GRACE!

The Carnegie House is always our "go-to" for special occasions. The atmosphere, service and, most importantly, the food is always excellent.
Wife’s birthday w immediate family
Good food amazing service what more can I say just the best overall
Fantastic experience and worth a drive (I live in Pittsbugh). The sea bass was the best I have ever had, the staff was amazing, and the wine list is top notch!
Excellent food, service, and atmosphere, but pricey.
Great place for that special occasion
Overall dinner was great!! Grandma loved it!! But the server was just okay..also the glasses are really big so someone with arthritis like my grandmother was having a hard time drinking water.. the winter salad was plain but I overall food was wonderful!!
Great location, tasteful menu and great service
Very nice restaurant, good distancing, the service needs a little work at answering questions about the menu - we asked
My boyfriend and I went for Valentine’s Day and we had an absolutely perfect time. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff and service was amazing and the food was probably one of the best dinners we’ve had. We are already counting down the days until we can come back!
With the pandemic, the restaurant has re-designed its seating, using the former Library as an area for dining adjacent to the restaurant. Drinks are now served at your table, not in the Library, and are dependent on ordering food. Although our favorite area, the Library, is no longer available for pre-dinner relaxation & drinks.
Food and service were exceptional. We sat outdoors in an “igloo” which was fun and different. Would definitely go there again!
The dining was a nice experience. Waiting staff was nice and respectful. In an intimate environment, especially during COVID I would have appreciated being seated farther away from the next table however.
Best lamb ever. Excellent old fashioned. Reasonably priced wine.
Nicest restaurant in State College....we sat in the library area and it was so peaceful and lovely. Food was excellent and the service was even better...will definitely return!
Thank you for your review, Mark! The Library is a focal point of the dining experience, we would agree with you! We are so glad to host you and that you had a tremendous dining experience. We look forward to hosting you again. Cheers!

I took my wife to Grace for her birthday , and it was OUTSTANDING! The social spacing as well as the care and concern of our dining experience was so very well done. We cannot wait to go back for another meal.
These are tough times but the food was great, the service was wonderful. It was a quiet night but all was wonderful.
Service and food was absolutely amazing and the setting of the library is absolutely romantic
