“Classic Americana”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Wow, is the best way to describe my visits to Hickory Bridge. I have each time dined with friends and the food has been wonderfully prepared and plentiful. Set in an over 100 year old barn that has been converted to a wonderful restaurant. The barn still features the original plank wood floor and many of the stall doors etc. from the barn. When you arrive you are greeted with apple cider, crackers, and cheese. After a few minutes of visiting and taking in the surroundings you are seated at your tables, where spiced peaches (absolutely great and I always ask for a second serving), homemade bread and apple butter await you. Your servers are outfitted in period outfits and absolutely attend to you as though you are their most important guest. The owner will many times visit your table to ensure you are enjoying your meal and tell you the story of the still working farm.

Your meal is made fresh in their kitchen and served family style. If you run short of anything just ask and they will bring another serving to your table. I actually had a friend eat 3 dishes of their Crab Imperial, after his regular meal. Though I’m not sure how, they continued to serve as long as he could eat. Myself I believe their fried chicken is absolutely pan fried and wonderful. We have always had 3 entrees, real mashed potatoes, fresh vegetables, and a wonderful desert to top it off. Each time I have visited Hickory Bridge I have enjoyed the family atmosphere and incredible food. I come away feeling as though I was at Grandma’s house for a Sunday meal.

“Delightful little out of the way place”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We really enjoyed our dinner at Hickory Bridge Farm. It was out in the country and a really cute place to spend an evening. The food was great and our waitress (Sam) was just lovely. The pretty background music added to the ambiance. Wonderful little country store and a barn with lots of antiques were interesting to walk through. One of the highlights of our trip to Gettysburg.

“Forget the chain restaurant .”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Don't waste waste your time at the chain restaurants in Gettyburg, if visiting Gettysburg be sure to stop at hickory bridge farms. Great home Style cooking no menu's,3 or four main courses,dining in a barn surrounded by great antiques. It's a real treat.

“Dinner at Grandmas”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

When you sit down to delicious home style food served family style, you will imagine yourself back at Grandma's dining table. We had been on a bus all day and were pleasantly surprised to sit down to a delectable dinner. We received an introduction to the area just before the servers descended on us with the house salad with their home made dressing followed by bowls flowing with food made from scratch. The servers were friendly and efficient. They catered to the tour busses but you could make a reservation to have dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings and at mid-day on Sunday. The 180 year old barn is beautifully restored complete with items that are nostalgic. After dinner enjoyed the walk around the grounds.
