The Dobbin House was in a very historic building. Food and atmosphere were both good! We looked around after we ate there.

The waitstaff dresses in period clothes. The meal is filling and the desserts are wonderful. It is a house from the 1700's built by a preacher for his wife and 19 children. It was also used as a local school.

Great food with a cool and historic environment. We ate there several times on our visit. Very close to the battlefields and other attractions.

Ate here for the 1st time based on previous reviews and was not disappointed. Food was excellent, especially the homemade breads/cakes and the French Onion Soup. Also loved the sparkling cider. Price was reasonable given the quality and amount food. Atmosphere was cozey and unique.

With the downfall of Farnsworth House we switched to having dinner here. It is a little more pricey but the food is fantastic. The wait staff is very polite, all dressed in period attire. You would be wise to make reservations in advance because it really fills up. We love having dinner here. If you can get in on a... More

First we waited for about 15 mins for our drinks to come. Then waited about 30 mins for our food to show up. the food was mediocre. also, during a busy holiday weekend should not have an inexperience waiter working.

One enters The Dobbin House Tavern and you really step back in time. We were here 5-6 years ago and loved it. So here we are again. All of the wait staff are dressed in the period and were very friendly. The food was delicious. We had 1/2 sandwich and soup. Really liked the onion soup. Yum. We will return.

I love the history behind the house! Make sure you go upstairs to see the mini museum. The food was great also.

My husband and I went here for our last night in Gettysburg. It was absolutely perfect. We ordered 2 steaks and mussels for an app and were completely stuffed by the end of the meal. The food was delicious and the service was great. We sat in the dining area, but would really like to try the Tavern next time... More
