Patty was our server in the tavern. Very nice atmosphere and all the food is delicious. Whenever we go to Gettysburg, we always eat dinner in the tavern.

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

Small, but bustling, basement bar that has great food. French onion soup is the best ever. Try the Adams Delight!

We went to the tavern based on the reviews on TripAdvisor. We order the baked onion soup, which was the most amazing I have had. We also ordered the half chicken dinner and the steak sandwich. Both dinners were fantastic. The ambiance is perfect with a cozy fireplace and candlelight. The service was excellent. We sat at the bar, and... More
