We visited the Dobbin House twice during our visit to Gettysburg. Our first visit found us in the upper dining room (old bedrooms), where we had our own private candlelight "bed" for two. A few of the booths are decorated like 4-poster canopy beds. The ambiance was lovely and the food divine. Our server was attentive and most pleasing. One note: while waiting to be seated, we had the chance to visit a small museum showcasing a slave hide-away and history of the house during the Civil War.
Our second visit found us in the Tavern, which is in the basement. The dining experience contrasted to the upper dining room. The Tavern has a relaxed atmosphere, where one will be found dining in close proximity to the other patrons. It is seemingly reminiscent of what one would call the old tavern days gone by. Each table in the Tavern is lit by candles, which adds to the authenticity of the experience.
