“We always return to the Dobbin House and it's always great !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2014 NEW

This was our 4th trip to Gettysburg and our 3rd trip to the Dobbin House. This trip we brought friends who had never been before, and it was the day before Thanksgiving. As always, the food was just over the top awesome! The King's Onion Soup just cannot be missed, and is a meal itself. And while the menu is not extensive, every item on it is delicious! We had 4 adults and 2 children and ate everything on the menu, and it was fantastic. The waiter and waitstaff, in period attire, were superb, and didn't rush us out after our meal and a nice sorbet. I just can't say enough god things about this place -- it is a Can't Miss for dining in Gettysburg.

“Very Nice Dinner; Beautiful Old Home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2014 NEW

We were looking for a dinner that was not just a meal - something where we could learn more about the history of the area at the same time. The restaurant is a lovely, restored building dating back the late 1700's. It has been restored to that time period. I recommend the steak or salmon - those got rave reviews at our table. Service was very good.

“House tour & dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014

We attended the house tour, then had dinner in the Tavern. This is always a favorite on our trip, especially at Christmas. Their decorations are festive & the food is excellent.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2014

The atmosphere is wonderful. Very charming. I highly recommend the prime rib and the crabcakes. The wait staff all wear period clothes and there is usually a fire in the fireplace in the winter which adds to the ambiance! Romantic restaurant.

“Wonderful nostalgic tavern”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2014

We stumbled upon this place while we were looking for food in Gettysburg. Not knowing what we found we were doubly delighted. The tavern served great food, with staff dressed in historical garb. The prices were average and the beverages were quite good. Mulled wine, hot buttered rum and a rum drink so potent you can only have two. The six of us had a great time.
