“Love love love!”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

We always eat in the tavern here. It is so delicious and the atmosphere is amazing. Don't Miss the crabcakes. They are about the same price as other restaurants in the area but 10x the experience. If you eat at the tavern don't Miss the gift shop upstairs!

“Oldest restaurant in town - really cool tavern”
Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Fun place to go - candles everywhere, waitresses dressed in ancient garb, very old wooden bars/tables etc. Food is pretty good and fairly reasonable. Get there very early for dinner if you want the spit fire roasted chicken as they run out. Definitely worth a stop.

“Best Food In Town”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

My heart lies w/ Dobbin. Best place to eat... the tavern downstairs is amazing and I love doing a nice dinner upstairs as well. I highly recommend the duck if you like duck. I also stay at their Gettystown Inn every year and the breakfast experience is wonderful.

“BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! First time for writing a review because this experience was well worth it. We would come to Gettysburg just to dine here. Loved the lump crab and avocado appetizer. Karen was our server; she was attentive and nurturing, offering pillows for the chair. The price paid was a bargain considering the excellent food and service beyond compare.We were able to sit by the fireplace and thoroughly enjoyed the selection and great food for the birthday celebration. Many thanks to all responsible in making this such a memorable happening.

“Excellent atmosphere, not so good food”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

The atmosphere and wait staff were wonderful, but food was subpar. The salad was solid, but the meat (we had duck and pork tenderloin) were dried out and actually seemed old - like they had been spinning in a warmer for a while. Disappointing and would not return. Too expensive for poorly prepared dishes.
