We visited Gettysburg yesterday and stopped here for dinner. The staff are dressed in period clothing. They are friendly and the service was great! We ate in the Tavern with candle lit lighting. It was a great experience!

We always eat at the Dobbin House(fine dining) when visiting Gettysburg. The meal is slightly expensive, but we love the food. The historical building is very cool, and the staff is generally very helpful. It's worth walking around and seeing the building if you eat here. We will return

I ate in the basement and it felt like civil war era atmosphere. Wait staff dressed in period garb. Food was very good too. I had a crabcake sandwich and pecan pie alamode. Nice place for some local appeal and not a chain place.

We ate upstairs in the dining room.The chicken dinner was passable.Steak was tough,service was not good at all. Tavern chicken is better if you can endure the noise.Pecan pie is good.Think I will dress the family in 18th Century garb,stay home and make my own dinner.

Four of us had dinner at the Dobbin House Saturday evening. Their French Onion soup is the best I have ever had and the avocado and crab appetizer was to die for. The facility is a Civil War era building that is as quaint as possible. You can dine at a table or in a four poster bed frame. Nothing... More

Sat at the bar for dinner. The setting takes you back to the 18th century and reminded me of an old English pub, low ceilings, somewhat loud but with a interesting charm. The Troegs draft was excellent as was the french onion soup. We had the crab cakes which was almost all crab, not like other places we've been recently.... More

I've been to the Dobbin House plenty of times over the years and have always eaten in the Tavern part of the restaurant (which encompasses the main floor and outside patio near the gift shop-which is a really nice shop with all kinds of jewelry, candles, historical books, jams and dip mixes, and other things) and the food has always...

Our last night of vacation was spent at the Dobbin House (Springhouse Tavern). It was delicious and such a cool setting for a historic trip. I highly recommend this restaurant.

WE dragged a big group of 12 into the basement of the Dobbin House Tavern and I really wish it was just me and my wife. Don't get me wrong, I love our friends and all of the kids we brought in, but the restaurant struggled to keep up with our big group and instead of adding a server and... More
