Everyone knows about this place so reservations are a must. The tables are a bit close but still very inviting. The service is top notch and the food was excellent. Stayed until closing but were not rushed out. Dine a little earlier if you want the prime rib.

The service was great, The food was excellent! But the "experience" itself if worth going. We ate at the tavern downstairs. We will be back when we are in the area.

We heard good things from a friend so we decided to have dinner there for our anniversary. Our meals were fantastic and the service was great. The decor in the house is outstanding. We left and said we would definitely go back again.

This is one of the pricier places in town but you won't break the bank dining here. We went for an early dinner down in the tavern. We were told the wait might be 30 minutes so we went upstairs to browse in the gift shop. Well, not 10 minutes later we were being seated. If you love history you... More

Had a wonderful time here. The "wenches" as they call them were all incredibly friendly and everyone is dressed up as though they were from colonial times. Food was good, had a few good beers, and loved the atmosphere most of all.

We visited Gettysburg for two days, and had two meals at the historic Dobbin House. Yes, it was that nice! Our first meal was in the dining room for dinner. Each room in the house reflects its original use - we were seated in the upstairs bedroom, and sat under a canopy in a cute corner of the room. Sounds... More

I sat in the tavern in the basement and had an excellent meal. A large menu to choose from and a great selection of beer and wine to choose from.

We enjoyed a late afternoon lunch in the basement tavern while in Gettysburg. It is a very popular dining spot recommended to us by our B&B. We felt like we had stepped back in time as we descended the stairs into the candle-lit room. Our waitress was extremely pleasant. The Dobbin House Tavern is the oldest building in Gettysburg built... More

We took the free tour of the house that was offered in the morning on Saturday. It was the best tour I have ever had!! After touring the Tavern section we knew we had to return for lunch. It was Saturday and it was packed. Very neat atmosphere. We learned a lot from the tour which I recommend if it... More

Second time here in about 2 years, with co-worker for business dinner. Really unique old historic structure. You find yourself getting caught up in how people lived a couple hundred years back. Food and drink selections were good. Can get busy and bustling. Drinks downstairs in the bar area is cramped with just so-so service. Dined in one of the... More
