Arooga’s Grille House & Sports House
The top place to watch the game for Harrisburg-area football fans would be Arooga’s. This is a consummate sports bar with a great menu, and it is a place that you can go with friends or family. So that you will not miss one moment of the big sporting events that are shown at the restaurant and bar, there are even televisions in the bathrooms. If you want to take a break from the big game, you can change the channel on the small television at your table. If you want to pass on the restaurant aspect of Arooga’s, though, there is also the American Tavern located next to the Arooga’s on Route 22. There is still the great food here, but in more of a bar atmosphere.
1104 Carlisle Road, Camp Hill, Pennsylvania
Gullifity’s Underground is a great place to catch any game, let alone the Super Bowl. Although some people may know of the Underground as a place to catch great local bands, the other side of the area is filled with big screen TVs so no one can miss one moment of the game. There is also an upstairs restaurant, but any food you want can be ordered downstairs in the Underground as well. There are always great drink specials.
