Good bar food, even better atmosphere

The food was pretty good, but you most likely going for the atmosphere. Dinners were mostly bar style food, but the servers are very friendly.

My wife and I took a day trip to ride around the battlefield and to stop by one of the local eateries. We decided on the Dobbin House since we had not been there yet. We arrived when they were opening since we knew they would be very busy. The tavern potion of the restaurant is open for lunch. It... More

Customer service is poor. Employees seem too focused on getting people in and out to achieve volume sales rather than being centered on the customer. Not one person said hello or smiled. The young male host said he couldn't seat our party of 3 because the third person wasn't there yet. I told him the man was in town on... More

Skeptical as we walked in...but WOW...30 min. wait turned into 15, drinks from the very attentive bartender were great, seemingly cramped quarters were quite spacious booths against a rustic cellar wall, everything from apps. to dessert were delicious, and we were never rushed or "herded like cattle". HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

We ate steak and enjoyed the fact that we were sitting in the building where discussions regarding the Civil War were held. A building built in 1776!

Menu in the bar was a bit limited and over priced. Food was good and location helped us cool off on a hot day. Wanted a drink outside while we were waiting but could not sit at their totally empty tables that were reserved for those eating dinner there. Really? Not sure I would bother eating there again.

Started off in the basement tavern for drinks. Very cool little bar. Dinner upstairs was awesome. The largest piece of prime rib I've ever had.

Food was great! The King's Onion Soup is the best I've had! Nice atmosphere for Gettysburg! Would definitely come again.

We went here as a family and I was not expecting much from what the outside looked like. The inside was beautiful. It made me feel as if I went back in time to an old tavern. The food was very good with good service. The price was a little high so you need to bring a big wallet. I... More

Even though the tavern is a little crowded, the experience is worth it. The food is very tasty. I recommend the spit roasted chicken.
