A new name, menu and look are ready to debut at the former location of Lettermans Sports Grill in State College

Tailgate Sports Bar & Grill, 1301 E. College Ave., will celebrate its grand opening beginning at 11 a.m. on Saturday.

The closest bar and restaurant to Beaver Stadium and the Bryce Jordan Center, Tailgate embraces its proximity to Penn State and the center of the Nittany Lion sports scene.

"Tailgate brings together all of Happy Valley’s community the way we know best, through food, craft beers, laughter and entertainment," "Our menu is infused with a touch of diversity, which is where we pride ourselves. You’ll find your most loved bar foods, as well as unique menu options that really reflect Tailgate’s persona of the melting pot that is State College."

The menu features a variety of burgers, sandwiches, wraps, tacos, appetizers, wings, soups and salads, as well as homemade entrees. A place for a family meal, it also features a children's menu as well. Check out the full menu here.

Located in front of the Hampton Inn, the building previously held Damon’s Grill. After renovations, it reopened as Lettermans in 2015.

After a change in ownership in the fall, the restaurant continued operating as Lettermans and kept on the previous staff, a restaurant representative said on Friday.

The restaurant, which also offers catering services, includes a dining room and a bar with televisions.

Tailgate's hours are listed as 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
