My only complaint is this place was so dark you couldn't read the menu; I ended up using my cell phone flashlight. The food was very good and the prices were OK. My wife had the onion soup and 1/2 sandwich and I think I eat about 1/2 of it. The burger was cooked just like I ordered. The prices... More

We have been to the Dobbin house 3 times and the food has never disappointed us! I've had the prime rib is excellent as is the drunken scallops. Service was adequate although our waiter had no personality! Felt like he was on some other planet! Still give it an excellent review

Everything was absolutely fantastic. Love the fact that it is a historic building. Best Onion Soup I have ever eaten and the prime rib melts in your mouth. Service was also exceptional.

I frequently use a French Onion Soup as a barometer for a restaurant. This was the best I've ever had, period, though they don't call it a "French" onion. I followed that with a Reuben which was also fantastic. My wife had the Roast Beef sandwich and was equally singing its praises. We will definately be back many more times... More

Cool old house renovated into a restaurant and bar. Ate an appetizer and had a couple cocktails in the basement bar. Old and dark and really cool. Dinner upstairs was interesting. The ambiance is really nice. Servers were knowledgeable and helpful. The duck was wonderful. The steak/lobster was just okay but good. Cool place to take a date or visitors.

My husband and I ate here 2 times while in Gettysburg! Each time was fantastic. Great food, great service! I even ordered dessert one afternoon and was truly impressed with their Hot Apple Pie. Their Apple Cider was amazing as well. If you're in that area, stop in for a bite...you won't be disappointed!

We had lunch in the Tavern which is in the basement. It was dug out from what used to be the root cellar of the Dobbin House. There is a small museum on the top floor. Ask to see it. The dining room is only open in the evening. Do make time for a lunch or dinner here. Food was... More

Enjoyed this place so much! Had a great meal in the tavern and loved the attention to details. Then we took the tour, lead by the owner, the next morning. We had so much fun learning about the house and the people.

My husband and I stopped by the Dobbin House Tavern while waiting for our reservation at the upstairs dining room. The Tavern is a former Civil War era Root Cellar with no windows and steeped in history. We ordered drinks at the bar and although it was crowded we were served promptly. A waitress from the dining room came downstairs... More
