Amazing place

We love the atmosphere at the Dobbin House. Was a bit disappointed that we were not able to get a table next to the fireplace, when we had requested it a month prior to our visit. We enjoyed our food--- love the fact the dinner comes with some amazing bread and a wonderful salad. Considering the... read more

Second time we ate here the food was great. The menu was great with plenty of options. The historic atmosphere was great made for a very special night for my wife and I. We have had lunch and dinner here both times every thing was excellent.

It was a special treat to dine at the Dobbin House. Our meal was delectable and the menus had many wonderful options. The service was impeccable. It was exactly the type of historic restaurant you would expect to find in Gettysburg. I will be going back!

We were staying for a week at numerous B&B's for a week, and one of them offered a gift certificate to the Dobbin House. Obviously, we were going to use it and try out the restaurant. So we arrived, and parking was a complete pain in the butt. No spots open at all anywhere close to the location. We went... More

The Dobbin House is arguably the classiest place to eat in town. Everything about this place is historic, from the building itself to the waitresses in period garb all the way to the menu written in old English style. They make excellent cocktails at the bar. As far as appetizers you have to get the French onion soup, there is... More

The tavern (downstairs) is always open or you can make reservations for the dinning area. The tavern has delicious food and is always well prepared. Definitely a neat, historic place to see on any visit to Gettysburg.

My husband and I arrived at Dobbin House without reservations on a Friday night (night before Valentine's Day), and were seated within 10 minutes on the second floor. The restaurant is extremely quaint and adorable. They have preserved the historic space and you truly feel like you are stepping back in time. We had an excellent meal. The french onion... More

My wife and I enjoyed a great meal at this restaurant during our visit to Gettysburg. This was a great meal at the end of the day after an awesome visit to Gettysburg battlefield. Our service was very good and the meal was fantastic! We ate in a small room off of the main house and it was most historic.... More
