“good place to experience local color in a college town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

Good local beers
Friendly bartenders
Good slice of local patrons
And the slightly crispy french fries were the perfect surprise out of the kitchen for a late night snack

“Nice pub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

We enjoyed our time at the Gingerbread Man. It was next door to our hotel. Service was friendly, and we liked all the moldings and decor. Food was good.

“Great Irish Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

Went here on two separate occasions while visiting Carlisle PA. The first was just for a few drinks after work (they could use a little more draft options, if I remember correctly they had eight beers on draft) and then once for dinner. We went as a group which I ordered the Fish and Chips, another person ordered the sampler and another the shrimp quesadilas (SP?). My friend said the quesadials weren't too good but the sampler and my fish and chips were great. Typical bar food, it's kinda hard to screw up. Staff was great and the one negative aspect of this place is that they have a separate area where people can smoke in, if you're sitting near this area you can smell it which is really annoying. Overall, it's a decent place with average food and a great staff.

“Love the G-Man!”

We are sure to stop in at least once each time we're in town for a car show! Always good food & it doesn't hurt that the drinks rock too!

“Multiple visits”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Great beer, especially local PA brews, and at a good price. Great sandwich selection. Fish and chips is hit or miss though: had it three times 2 great, one terrible.
