We recently went to this restaurant with a group of 90 people. The food was excellent and they were prepared for us. Our entire group came and were gone in just a little more than an hour. I can highly recommend the ham and new potatoes.

The atmosphere is colonial and the restaurant is a national historic site. We had stak and veal for dinner which was excellent, service was top notch, no complaints whatsoever, a must if you are in the area. Reservations recommended!

We have visited here several times in the past. This visit wasn't so good. The tavern is very small but unique. The menu is very limited, mostly deli sandwiches, soup, salads, desserts. We ordered grilled chicken sandwich, Reuben, and burger. Sides to choose were cole slaw, potato salad or chips. Portions were very small and we aren't big eaters at... More

I generally find "theme" restaurants a little tacky, with little in the way of palatable food, but this place is truly a lovely restaurant. The building dates back to well before the Civil War and much of its character and charm remains intact. We were seated at a "booth" which actually was an old bed (hard to visualize but really...

It was a blustery cold evening when we arrived at the very haunted Dobbin House Tavern for dinner. My husband and I made dinner reservation for 6:00pm. Arriving a bit early, we were promptly seated in one of the six lovely Alexander Dobbin dining rooms complete with a blazing fireplace. Dinning by candlelight that added a bit of romance to... More

Absolutely can't wait to get back to this place. The downstairs tavern was fantastic !! From the food to the atmosphere to the service. It was great in every aspect. The fireplace and candle lighting all around was a bonus.

My wife and I enjoyed the food and ambiance of the Dobbin House during our recent trip to Gettysburg. The Dobbin House has great food and set in the 1700s which was a very neat treat to experience. There is a very large gift shop attached to this historical stop as well.
