In my younger days there were a number of late night-all night eating establishments where we went after the bars closed.  Today, since I'm rarely out that late or maybe even awake that late I couldn't say there are any all night eateries nearby, except the truck stops at Clearfield and Brookville.

 

Maybe Sheetz fills the bill for the late night munchies.

I loved WINKY's as a kid. The Big Wink was the best. And liked when they would make it in front of you.

Are you saying Winky's made you happy to be hungry?
I can still hear that jingle in my head.

My friends and I would go to GNC and buy .99 cent sunflower seeds then go to Montgomery Wards cafeteria and eat the sunflower seeds, fries and soda while our moms shopped.

Clearfield truck stop restaurant serves a really delicious burger.  Everything in town closes too early for the people that are "late nighters".

Denny's in Brookville is also a good place.  20 miles either way you cut it.

This is where the TL Ski Lodge basically moved to.

I'm going to have to try it out.

I finally got around to trying Station 101 for the first time the other night and it has only been open for what, 2-3 years now?

How kid friendly is the place. Is the bar and dining room separate or is it combined like Doc G.

Has a good feel to it. As Jeff mentioned, the bar area is physically separated from the dining area. The dining area is set up as a restaurant and not as an overflow area for bar patrons to migrate to.

I would not hesitate to take kids there.

I also went for the first time to Station 101, several weeks ago, and it, too, is a very clean, decent place. Food (salad with salmon on it), was excellent.

Watch out for the wild beasts!

I worked there when I was 14 until 16, it was a great place. But, when McD's moved in right next door, it was the beginning of the end even though Winky's had such a larger menu. They even opened at 7am every day with home made donuts.

I remember the Murphy's Mart cafeteria, but I can't place a Ward's cafeteria. Where was it exactly?

If you can remember how Montgomery Wards was laid out it was in the front on the right hand side. I remember having lunch there many times and sitting in booths by the windows and seeing the parking lot.

Adjacent to the ladies restroom, where by the way one used to have to pay a dime to use. Once upon a time.

What were those fried things that were so good? They were served in a cardboard carton. They sat under the heat lamp.
