Took in-laws for dinner and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Drinks, salad, and steaks were well prepared and tasted great. Will return in the future and try out the Tavern next time for a little more relaxed environment.

Atmosphere of Springhouse Tavern was warm, rustic and cozy! Drinks were yummy-hot apple ciders with liqueur and great beers on tap! Had crabcakes which were good. My husband had a sandwich. Best part of food was the salads and homemade dressing. Great place to visit!

There was a glowing fire in the hearth as we entered. The ambience is wonderful. They gave roses out that evening for Valentines Day, which was a nice surprise! We were led upstairs through different dining rooms to the museum area where our table was. Our meal was delicious and our server super friendly. Highly recommend if you're in Gettysburg.

The Dobbin House Tavern is a great place to eat in Gettysburg! The Tavern is downstairs, underneath the Dobbin House, and is very rustic and for a large part, pretty original. The food is very good!!! The servers are all in period dress, which lends to the atmosphere. I'd definitely recommend it!!

Although busy during the luncheon hour on a Sunday, the service was great and the food was very tasty. The King's Onion Soup is a must have & the house rum cocktail is strong but delicious. The house gingerbread is on the sweeter side but is accompanied nicely with the hot buttered rum & lemon sauce. The spit roasted chicken... More

Our first visit here and we weren't disappointed! Loved the atmosphere of an 1800's tavern with candlelight! Lots of selections for lunch and the four of us each got something different. Everyone really liked their choice - crab cake sandwich, grilled chicken w/baked potato, half sandwich & onion soup combo, and grilled chicken sandwich. Prices were slightly high, but not... More

Every time we come to Gettysburg we have our one special dinner night here. The service is great, the food is made to order and fairly quick to the table. We loved the idea of dining in the "bedroom" or the "sewing room". Be prepared for a very long wait if you don't make reservations. We make ours early in... More
