Awesome sweet bread! Great atmosphere , but very small room with lots of tables ! Got the half sandwich roast beef with ceaser Salad. Very dry beef and hard bread . Salad was ok. Want to have my wedding dinner there, but just to uncomfortable .

I always have heard that 1st impressions are lasting ones. Took the GF on a surprise short notice Gettysburg trip, she wanted to see where I spent a lot of time as a kid.

What a wonderful evening and dinner we had on 1/18/15. Amanda, our waitress, was informative and attentive. Our meal was excellent, the best filet of beef that we've had in a very long time. My husband and I both felt that we were visiting Williamsburg...had that historic aura. We will go back on our next visit to Gettysburg!

A neat place for lunch in Gettysburg but be careful going down the dark stairs to the Spring House Tavern. Lots of ambiance from the costumed wait staff to the young man whose main function seemed to be to take care of the lighted tapers on the tables. I had the onion soup and sparking cider--both were delish! Didn't indulge... More

Check out the Dobbin House. This is the best place in Gettysburg for dinner or a drink in the Spring House Tavern downstairs.

We went here on the recommendation of the hotel personnel and enjoyed our meal thoroughly. Good, home-style cooking and served in a friendly ambiance. It was a great end to a day of exploring the battlefield and other attractions.

I have been eating here for years and have never had a bad dish. The servers are always nice, the food hot and delicious and a wonderful atmosphere. If you would like to treat yourself call for a reservation.

We always enjoy Dobbin House Tavern. Make a reservation early and request to eat in one for the canopy beds on the second floor. The food is always great, the waitresses wonderful and very accommodating. No matter what you order from seafood to prime rib it eats well. Bon Apetite!
