The servers were in period dress. The waiter told us her dress was 300.00! The food, most we had never heard of - was great.

Went there for a Sunday lunch with the whole family. Not long of a wait and pleasant waiter and prompt service. The restaurant has a very nice cozy setting with multiple dining rooms. The food was average. I had the crab cakes, not much lump meat. everyone else had cold cut sandwiches. I would go back and try them again... More

The best part about this place was the history behind it! My husband got the NY strip steak & I ordered the chicken. Both items were cooked well & very tasty. The salad was fresh, house dressing was also very tasty & light. The waitresses were very pleasant & friendly, always refilling drinks! I do recommend making reservations. It got... More

Ate at the tavern on a monday night. The atmosphere was great and the waitress was wonderful. Big portions for your price. It was quiet and authentic. Seeing the underground railroad exhibit by the stairs and the spring was amazing. Highly recommend coming here and the gift shop is great too

The atmosphere in the Dobbin House Tavern was nice with employees dressed in period attire of Gettysburg. The food lacked luster, chicken was dry and just ok, nothing special, dessert was a disappointment when it comes to apple pie.

Food was excellent. The bed and breakfast made the reservations for us, it was my wife's birthday. They have some very nice seating in certain areas and not others. tables are tightly packed into this historic building. Being historic, the floors are a bit out of level, so much so, we had to ask to move from our original table... More

Very packed with people, because the food is really good, the service is good, and the environment is cozy. We had the half sandwich with soup for lunch. The Turkey and bread were very fresh and the French onion soup was delicious.

Dropped in on recommendation from our campground to the tavern for a casual early light dinner. We both had a salad that was just what we needed. The staff dresses in period clothing.of the late 18th century. They are friendly and efficient on their service. Most off the lighting is candles so if you need more light to read bring... More
