Versatile and Stunning - An Eventective User from State College, PA

In July of this year, we were tasked with creating a Penn State experience for conference guests. Harrison's executed this with grace and style and without missing a step. Harrison's catered two distinct meals and two separate locations on the same day for us. Each event had a distinct stylish feel while accommodating all of our guests needs. The food was absolutely stunning in presentation and equally as delicious!

Perfect Caterer for Any Event! - An Eventective User from University Park, PA

I've been to Harrison's restaurant and have had their food at catered events in the past so when I was looking for a caterer for a work event, they were my first choice. We had a limited budget to work with for our reception and Harrison's was amazing. They gave me suggestions, helped me with the menu and provided fantastic service. Food was already delivered when I arrived to the space and as usual it was beautiful, fresh, and delicious. Highly recommended!

VIP Sponsor Event - An Eventective User from 3 Dots Downtown

We selected Harrison's based on rave reviews we received from both organizers and attendees of previous events. For our first fundraiser ever, we did not have a lot of history and found Harrison's staff more than willing to walk us through all our options. When we were surprised with last minute reservations, Harrison's didn't bat a eye and made accommodations. Everyone loved the food and especially raved about the grilled balsamic beef and hearty meatballs. We will definitely reach out to them again!

Harrison's Wine Grill & Catering did a a fabulous job catering my home event. I appreciated the management people, who helped me plan the event. The food was delicious and setup for the event was efficient, fast, perfect.

ITGA Conference Reception - An Eventective User from MLK Plaza

Our International Town and Gown Conference committee had a wonderful experience planning our outdoor reception with Harrison's. They were extremely professional and accommodating. They made the extra effort to use locally sourced food and all of our guests LOVED the food! We received outstanding reviews from our attendees because of the food and we can't thank Harrison's enough. They were a pleasure to work with and we would do it again! Thanks Harrison's for being one of the best caterer's in our area and making our event a success!

All Around Great! - An Eventective User from Philadelphia, PA

I was hosting a luncheon event in State College, on campus at Penn State, and last minute needed to book a caterer. I got a recommendation from a friend that Harrison's was a great option - and indeed they were! Not only did they work with me to create a custom menu to meet my needs, but they did it in under two weeks. The delivery went smoothly and the food was perfection. Everyone raved how fresh and delicious everything was - especially the thai noodle salad. I'd recommend Harrisons to everyone!

Excellent food and service for any size event - An Eventective User from State College, PA

Harrison's is always my go-to for important events. We recently had a two day event with meal-meetings from 10-50 people. It was effortless for me. Everyone raved about the food, absolutely delicious. Definitely my first choice for catering!

Excellent service - An Eventective User from STATE COLLEGE, PA

Harrison's catered a reception for about 40 people. It went off without a hitch: great food and great servers. Highly recommend!

Highly Recommended! - An Eventective User from STATE COLLEGE, PA

Our organization has been using Harrison's for a number of years at their Above the Valley venue, Seven Mountains Winery, and multiple locations on campus. Each event no matter the size has been approached with the same care and attention. The quality of food and level of service and delivery have been outstanding. Our guests always enjoy gatherings catered by Harrison's. We look forward to utilizing Harrison's expertise for many more events.

Highly Recommend! - An Eventective User from State College, PA

Thank you Harrisons for the excellent food and service you provided in our home for a Penn State Graduate Student Opening House in February. We appreciated the prompt arrival and the efficiency of set up your server provided. Her experience and attention to detail provided excellent care for our guests. The food was both delicious and beautifully displayed. At the end of the evening our kitchen and dining areas were left in perfect order. We appreciated your assistance in planning the menu and flow of guests prior to the event and the debrief at the end of the evening for future planning. We look forward to using your services again.

Harrison's provided a catered holiday luncheon for our office. Planning interaction was great and delivery was early and set up very efficient. Our meal was great and well prepared!

Staff Appreciation Luncheon - An Eventective User from State College, PA

Delicious Food and Very Good Service - An Eventective User from STATE COLLEGE, PA

Nov 2017 our Penn State unit hosted a conference highlighting a new and significant analytical, scientific instrument. We had invited speakers from around the country participate. Harrison's Catering provided breakfast, lunch and the afternoon break. They were easy to work with, the food was excellent and the morning attendant was most helpful. Having the attendant allowed me to do other work. Thank you Harrison's!

Catering at Mount Nittany Vineyard & Winery - An Eventective User from State College, PA

We held our global technology conference in State College in October 2017 and held an evening event for about 75 people at Mount Nittany Vineyard & Winery, catered by Harrison's. It was excellent! As well as the event itself, the planning was first-rate, involving detailed menu reviews and coordination with the Vineyard owner to ensure the best possible layout. Very happy - I thoroughly recommend Harrison's.

Catering Review - An Eventective User from State College, PA

Our office hosted a gathering recently and contacted Harrison's for the catering event. We did not need to look elsewhere based on the follow up and professionalism from the staff. Prior to the event beginning, the staff arrived and set everything up beautifully with little direction from us. During the event, the trays and warmers were constantly refilled, the bartender was professional, and the staff was extremely pleasant and courteous. In addition, the food was delicious and plentiful. An extra nice touch was ensuring that any remaining food was wrapped up to take home. I would recommend Harrison's for any event, large or small.

Amazing Catering for a Conference - An Eventective User from State College, PA

Harrison's did a fantastic job of catering our two-day conference. The food and the service exceeded our expectations. We received a lot of positive feedback about the food from attendees. The staff was friendly and professional, and Natalie was a great help in planning and executing the menu. We will definitely use Harrison's for future events.

Great experience catering my small party - An Eventective User from Bellefonte, PA

From the planning stages to the day of the event (a surprise party for my wife's XXth birthday), the people at Harrison's delivered. The food was delicious and still hot. Many of my guests especially complimented the salmon. The dropoff person quickly arranged all of the food on the table dedicated to it. A bit later in the evening, I thought they had forgotten the cake plates as I could not locate them on the buffet table. Turns out they had placed them on the cake table already for me. A small thing, but very much appreciated. Not only were they located where they should be, but it prevented guests from accidentally using those during dinner and running the risk of not having enough plates for dessert. I will definitely use Harrison's again in the future.

Outstanding! - An Eventective User from STATE COLLEGE, PA

Without fail, Harrison's delivers an outstanding experience. From service to food, we could not be happier. Our catering event was a crowded, high pressure event held outside in the summer heat. And the servers were dressed professionally and acted with the utmost courtesy to all our guests. Their setup and cleanup was on-time and efficient. We look forward to working with Harrison's again in the future!

Repeat Use of Catering Services - An Eventective User from STATE COLLEGE, PA

Harrison's has always delivered high quality food for luncheons I have had over the past few years. Once I placed my order, I had no worries and knew all would be delivered as promised.

Best Caterer! - An Eventective User from State College, PA

By far the best caterer in town! State College brides...be aware, this is the only caterer we spoke with that would box our leftovers from the buffet, everyone else would've thrown them away! The catering staff at Harrison's is full of professional individuals. Natalie you were awesome during our entire planning process! You helped us with menu suggestions and catering to our gluten-free and vegetarian guests. On the day of, the entire staff was on point with everything! The food was delicious! They brought my husband and I a plate of food before the buffet line opened and they even got us drinks from our bar! It was the only time we sat down the entire evening and it was a great addition to be waited on! We highly recommend Harrison's for all of your catering needs, big or small!
