A great place to recap a golf outing or enjoy favorite local dining is the Founders Grille, serving breakfast lunch and dinner. Offering season hours, the Founders Grille is ideal for parties, a bite after a long day of 36-holes or a quiet evening for two on the patio with amazing mountain views.
Operated in partnership with Center Square Brewing of Abbottstown, the new Black Oak Bar will feature locally crafted beers and other Pennsylvania-based wines and distilled beverages. The bar’s name honors the nearly 200 year-old Champion Black Oak tree that grew majestically on our property near the Penn State Mont Alto Campus. At 110’ tall and 243 in. round, it was almost 2 times as tall and nearly 7 times wider that a typical Black Oak. This champion Black Oak grew from 1840 until it fell in 2017—living through the Civil War and the Industrial Revolution. The tree was loved and climbed by decades of Penn State Mont Alto Forestry students. The Founders Grille and Black Oak Bar are open to the public daily in season. The Founders Grille opens at 6 am for breakfast and serves all day. The Black Oak Bar is open daily 10 am to 10 pm.
