“Amazing food, slow service, a bit pricey.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I had lunch at this restaurant during my business trip. The food was absolutely amazing. The iced tea was fresh brewed and delicious. Lunch was excellent. I had the tuna steak sandwich and I've never had a sandwich so delicious. However, the service was slow and the lunch was quite pricey (approximate dinner prices for a small lunch). The atmosphere was excellent and professional as well.

“Excellent dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We visited Gettysburg, PA, recently for our third anniversary, and decided to have dinner at 1863. Knowing it was our anniversary, they brought us free champagne and a yummy appetizer. The service was excellent (Caitlin was our server), and the our meals were delicious. As it turns out, they were hosting an event in their restaurant that night, so seated us in an adjacent area which turned out to be cozier. The hostess, Linda, was very friendly and helpful regarding area attractions, and we had a lovely conversation with the manager of the restaurant. We would definitely go back!!

“Pleasantly surprised, nicely decorated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

We dined here Sunday, September 22nd.
Our friends ordered the hummus to start
We all had some. We eat quite a bit of hummus
and we agreed this was some of the best hummus we ever had
I ordered the vegetable risotto, the risotto was ok.
Our friend ordered the summer salad and he said he would order the
Salad again.

My husband and our friend both ordered the duck.
They ate every bite and said it had nice flavoring and would
Order the duck again.

I ordered the chicken gemelli very cheesy and lightly seasoned

We were all pleasantly surprised that Our meals were very good.

The bread is a little on the harder side and we prefer softer breads.
The fresh brewed tea is ok.

We would definitely dine here again in the future.

“Right in the hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Convenient and good. There could be more people making omlettes as when the restaurant is full the omlette making gets backed up..who wants to wait 6 deep for eggs. But the selection was good, salmon and bagels, french toast, pancakes, sausage, bacon, eggs, strawberries, blueberries, apples, oranges, muffins. The omlette selection was ham and cheese, maryland crab or western..so something for everyone. Good food.
