My wife and I had dinner here, celebrating her birthday. This is an upscale venue(only a few in Gettysburg-Hanover area). It was a Monday evening and it was not busy. The hostess was gracious and seated us promptly. The dining area was of moderate size, nicely decorated, bright, and clean. The view is of the hotel entance side, looking over the entrance plantings. Our waiter, Brian, was most helpful and attentive. The wine list was resricted. The hotel features artisan wines from southcentral PA which personally not a fan of. Beer selection is good and is available bottled. The menu is not expansive.We had calamari as a starter and was served breaded with their special garnishes. The dinner roos are artisan with rosemary flavor. They are noted for their prime rib. We had diver scallops and prime rib. The food was was presented beautifully, hinting at a master chef in the kitchen.The salads and vegetables are local and taste delicious. We did not try dessert.. Entrees run $25-30. Expect $50 per person with gratuity. Will return for special occasion.

This restaurant is located in the Wyndam Hotel just east of Gettysburg (on route 30). It is the second time we have eaten here and this experiences was just as good as our first. Decoration and ambiance appropriate for the setting. Cocktail mixed to perfection. Waiter and waitress = attentive (but not overbearing) and efficient and pleasant mannered. Food was outstanding! We both had the prime rib and it was tender and cooked exactly to our order. Wine is a bit pricey, but my glass was good. We would definitely go back another time when in Gettysburg.

The people at the next table told us they traveled 20 miles for the steak. We loved the fresh rolls, the attentive service and the big portions.

This restaurant is located in the Wyndham Hotel. Based on previous experience with hotel restaurants my expectations weren't very high. Much to my surprise, both the food & the service were exceptional. I had a trout dish with crabmeat that was perfectly prepared ; skin was crisp while fish was juicy & flavorful. My wife had prime rib which was served medium rare just as she requested. All in all a very pleasant dining experience. We'll be back.
