When visit Gettysburg every year we make at least 2 trips to the Dobbin House. The food is quite good, the service attentive even at rushed times. The dining rooms can be quite small so be prepared to almost share conversations with other tables. Still,...More

My wife and I stopped for dinner during our trip to Gettysburg. We ate in the Tavern, which is located in the cellar of the house. The food was actually very good as was the service. We ate by candle light, which was interesting.
