Great Setting and Food

We simply loved the setting of an old cellar. The food was amazing and the prices were not too bad. We highly recommend the potato salad. Highly recommend.

We stumbled across the Dobbin House as we were walking around and hungry, and I am so very glad we did. I love the atmosphere of this place, and you get some good history while eating as well! Our waitress was pleasant. It was busy, and there isn't a ton of seating, which I am assuming is so that they... More

We arrived in town to have dinner at the Dobbin House. While we were standing directly in front of it, we could not find the door to enter. A lovely young lady dressed in a period costume selling ghost tours walked us up to the door which was in an alley. Dinner at the Dobbin House was excellent. We had... More

Had dinner in the crowded Springhouse tavern located in the basement of the Dobbin House Tavern. The veggies were fresh and local. The hit was the Maryland Crab cake with tons of crabmeat. Excellent service.

Both the restaurant and Springhouse Tavern have great, consistent food. Our wait staff has always been friendly and attentive. Our favorites in the Tavern are the Baked Onion Soup, and the open faced Reuben Sandwich.

Although our son attended Gettysburg College for 4 years, we never experienced Dobbin House until his graduation in May. We made reservations well in advance knowing this would be a busy weekend. We had a party of 7, all adults or young adults, and everyone enjoyed the evening. The bread basket was superb with a variety of breads and muffins... More

This is a good restaurant in a vey historic building in the southern part of town. With the staff dressed in period costume it made for a good place to eat to get you in the mindset for a Civil War experience visiting the Battlefield. If only the masses of poorly dressed tourists had eaten somewhere else. It's a shame... More

We enjoyed our evening at the Dobbin House, it had a very cozy, authentic feel to it and service was excellent. Although we had a late reservation, we did not feel rushed. We had crab cakes and duck at our table, the wine selection was nice and overall very pleasant.

This restaurant has such potential and should have been able to pull off a 4 or 5 star review but sadly at the price point they are at best average. First off we really liked our waiter nice guy very personable but didn't have much to make in the way of suggestions. The dining room (we ate in the basement)... More

I have been to Gettysburg many times, I just have never been to Dobbin. We opted to go to the bar in the basement. The bartender was excellent. The bloody mary was great, as well as the onion soup. The crab dip was not bad.
