We visit the Inn every 3-4 months and also were married in Gettysburg. DIANE IS THE BEST!! She is so welcoming and always ensures we are very well taken care of, even leaving a warm plate of cookies in our room for an afternoon snack!...We consider the Inn an extension of our home and would never stay anywhere else in Gettysburg. We have stayed in many different rooms and they are all wonderful. The restaurant is great as well, Jess is a wonderful server! We look forward to many wonderful stays in the years to come!

My partner and I decided to give this place a try for our anniversary dinner. We saw their prix fixe menu online and thought it sounded really good. It ended up being much better than we expected. The best dish of the night was hands...down the brie appetizer. The cheese itself was so smooth and creamy, it was the best brie I have ever tasted. The accompanying apple compote was sweet and delicious, my partner (who doesn't like brie as much as I do) kept trying to steal the food off my plate. Sidenote, the brie appetizer is huge, it's definitely enough to share. All other dishes were also delicious, but even more notable than the food was the service. Our waitress was great and made for a fun conversation, and the sommelier was amazing. We took the wine pairing to go along with our prix fixe. The sommelier paired different wines according to each dish we selected (giving each one of us different wines when we selected different dishes) and sometimes even gave us two different options to compare the different flavors you get from each wine with the dish. When we liked a certain wine, he brought the bottle over for us to take a picture of it and told us where to find it and how much the bottle usually runs for. He recommend good wines that are coming up this season, and generally was just super nice and helpful. Amazing service from everyone at this restaurant. We will definitely be back.More

This restaurant was sitting around 12th best in Gettysburg when we visited. Should be top3, at least. It’s our #1! The baked brie small/starter dish was/is HUH-maxing! Gotta try it! Caesar salad was great. Dressing was light and spot on. Fresh romaine, great croutons, just...the right amount of cheese. Crab bisque was amazing as well. Super creamy and buttery. Lots of crab! The pork chop dish through me for a twist. The bone in chop was cooked perfect and so juicy! The twist was the beans, tomato, Porto belly mixture it rested on. I’m used to mashed potatoes but this was a welcome change that worked. This was the only dish I seasoned but I use a A LOT of salt. They don’t have salt and pepper on the table and I can attest the chef is spot on with his seasoning. Finally, the crime brûlée. SO creamy, rich, and smooth! Great way to end the meal. I did the wine pairing with the price fixed menus and so glad I did! Great deal and the sommelier was awesome! Super personable and down to conversation on the wine. Get by this restaurant and give it a try!More

An interesting place that will take you back in time. Our lunch was tasty and was topped off by an inspired dessert. We had great service. The property is old and needs some attention to details and a good freshening up. Our meal was fine,...but not memorable, a fish dish (on a Friday) with a starter course of baked brie and a salad and finished with a rich and well-presented dessert. It might be fun with a great group of friends. they also have a country roadhouse bar across the parking lot that has a large event space at both the Inn and attached to the roadhouse bar. It was the little details like the parking stops that were out of whack and other aspects of the property that made me think that it needs more attention all around.More

We went to the restaurant for My birthday, as we had been there last year for the first time and loved it. This dinner turned out to be very disappointing The service was extremely slow even though it was a Wednesday night and only a...few tables were occupied. There was a very long wait between courses and several times when we needed something, such as butter and salt and pepper, there was no one to ask for quite a while. The butternut squash soup was so thick that we could stand our spoons up in it, and was very under seasoned. (Hence the need for salt and pepper. The spinach salad had frozen strawberries in it, which is inexcusable. The dressing had very little taste. The crab cake was passable, with no lump crab meat. It was not comparable to your typical Maryland crab cake. The slaw served with it was tasteless. My husband did like his fried oysyers! The server never once asked how any of the food tasted. Sadly we won’t be going back.More

We were so excited to try out this restaurant after looking over the menu online. The place also looked charming; well, the place IS charming, but the food is terrible. Our waitress, Tracy, was the bright light in an otherwise disappointing evening. Any food that...tasted good was not made in the kitchen! (Re: cheese and cheesecake) The main courses we ordered were smoked lamb - it had no flavor but smoke - salmon was inedible, and the pork chop was completely raw on one side. I hope it was an off night for the chef, but we won’t be back again to test it out. Too much cash for poor quality food.More

We had eaten here a few years ago and enjoyed the meal, but I can only assume they're having issues with the kitchen staff lately. My wife decided to treat me to a nice birthday dinner, but it was anything but a pleasant experience. It...took 70 minutes from the time we gave our order until the meal was served. The entrees were way overcooked and dried out, basically ruined. We did inform the server, who was very apologetic, and to their credit the restaurant made amends which took some of the sting out of the bad experience. But sadly the Inn at Herr Ridge has gone downhill, which saddens me. Aside from the poor quality of the cooking, we thought the restaurant was overpriced. I hope they can make improvements and return to being one of the better Gettysburg restaurants.More
