My husband and I tried to eat here for the 2nd time and had no luck. We were seated pretty quickly in the outside part. We sat for 10 mins and no one came over. Another couple got up and we heard them say something about 30 mins. So we decided to leave as well. Never did see a server.... More

You will dine in the oldest original house in Gettysburg, built in the 1830's and you will receive a meal that will not disappoint. A bit on the pricey side but portions are large and you can share. You will view original floors, doors and ceiling beams. Our server was both friendly and helpful. Try it!

This place is so charming it is not to be missed. The food is good, the drinks are good and the atmosphere is terrific. It is not the usual Civil War feeling but reflects back to years earlier when the tavern was first built. Having a sandwich in the basement is an experience of going back into time. We have... More

Atmosphere was neat. Food was just Ok, portions are very small. Service wasn't great, didn't seem like they had enough help. We were still hungry after we left and spent $32 on 2 sandwiches. Roast beef was a little dry, crab cakes that are described as large are smaller than the palm of your hand and more of a snack.... More

Well worth stopping bye because of the heritage but the food was average at best. The atmosphere was fun, our service was poor.

This place was so crowded and there weren't enough wait staff. We got seated, she came back for our order, we were served, and then she brought the bill. I don't remember seeing her. We were against the wall on a bench attached to the wall (by the natural spring) It was heavenly cool so I didn't mind the crowd.... More

My family and I had dinner here last night (8/23/2015). It was good, not amazing, just good! It was definitely overpriced. The homemade breads and local cider were excellent. The atmosphere was cozy and authentic. Our waitress was extremely nice and friendly.
