Great meatloaf sandwich!

Great gravy fries and meatloaf sandwich. Cheesecake was awesome too. I love old style diners, especially in Pennsylvania!

Sunday morning during Remembrance day weekend and the place was crowded but we were seated fast and served very quickly. We all had something different but were all satisfied with our meal. Would recommend a visit to experience a local diner. While we were there, we actually met the actor who played A. Lincoln in the parade on Saturday .

Absolutely nothing special. I had a greek salad, husband club sandwich, grandma lasagna, son omelet. Really not much to say-prices are average, service was nice enough. I wouldn't bother.

Great pancakes, French toast, waffles plus lots of syrups, great smoked bacon, sausage, eggs, etc...all the calories you need to jump-start your day or your week. This Gettysburg classic would have been on Abe's itinerary if it were here in 1863. And he would go back too. We sure will.

We decided to eat brunch at the Lincoln Diner on a Sunday morning before leaving town - it wasn't our greatest decision. The restaurant was literally wall to wall people and service was quite slow, for obvious reasons. We waited almost twenty minutes just to order and our food took a good 45 minutes to arrive. Also, my sister wanted... More

Up from Texas to do business with the fantastic Gettysburg Community Theatre, I was in need of a fall-back-on, go-to place for food to pass my numerous off-times...I found one! The Lincoln Dinner is located across the street from the beautiful (and active) Majestic Theatre & famous train station to which Pres. Lincoln arrived to deliver his Gettysburg Address. Open...

Pretty much your average diner. They do offer some unique, Pennsylvania dishes that are pretty well done. We go back mostly for the terrific homemade desserts. When they have it, the "house cake" is outstanding. Very reasonably priced menu.

Just off the historic downtown and across the street from the train depot where Lincoln came in to Gettysburg. The food was typical diner fare, done well. Bakery items made fresh on site. Wait staff were attentive and while the building was dated, it was clean and bright inside. My burger was delicious, my companion had spaghetti, which was good,... More

Had lunch at the Lincoln Diner with three other family members on a Saturday. We were seated right away. Lunch was nothing out of the ordinary. Most of us would say lunch was so-so. Pretty normal for diner fare. Would not go there again.
