This is a pub located in the picturesque college town of Lewisburg, PA. It's a rather small establishment with a good selection of craft beers on draught including local Pennsylvania and well-known craft offerings. The cuisine is basic pub food but it's well-prepared and tasty. It's much smaller and less frenzied than the Bull Run Inn. It's nice to have another good craft beer establishment in Lewisburg.

As a recently-21 student at the university in town and a big fan of quality beer, I immediately gravitated toward the Smiling Chameleon. Even after my first visit, I knew the place was my favorite in town. Far enough from campus that the loud frat/sorority types don't come but not so far that the walk is uninviting, it's not hard to pass right by the place at a glance. When you go inside however, you're home. Really. A 30-tap lineup and nice long bar to match greet you upon entry, and the service is absolutely personable, definitely a place that makes you want to be a regular. While not outrageously low, the prices are totally reasonable, even on a college budget. Come with a few friends and you really could spend all night trying the beer and enjoying the good company. Highly suggested!

This is one of the best places I have ever had a beer at. Staff very friendly and the cold. small but lively!!! I love this place. Cool little town and has a college. Long bar with plenty of seats and the company I met were funny and enjoyable. The front door is the best. Looks like an old time door from a castle. I thought the name was great also. They told me that they change the menu every month and some of the beers change also on a rotating basis. teh guacamole is done table side and the waiter talked to us and made us feel like we were his best friend. Will be back and try more of their beers. They also said they try to serve Pennsylvania micro beers, but do have beers from all over.
