Restaurants during Remembrance Day weekend

I am a frequent visitor to Gettysburg but will be attending the Remembrance Day weekend activities for the first time. I've been told it will be very crowded so...I'm wondering if there are some little known or out of the way restaurants that alot of tourists don't know about that would be good to go eat and not have long lines or mobbed with people....is that possible? Even if it's in a nearby town, any suggestions appreciated. And yes, I do have lodging reservations and will have a rent car.

About 10-15 minutes drive east from Gettysburg is Hanover, Pa. Hanover is twice the size of Gettysburg and has many, many restaurants. It is a great place to head to when Gettysburg is filled with people.

Roughly 5 miles east of Gettysburg is Gina's Place, an Italian restaurant that has excellent pasta. It is along Rt 116. My guess is it would not be busy either.

Frankly I doubt there will be any restaurant in Gettysburg that won't be packed ...

I agree with the Hanover suggestion. I was just there not long ago for a business meeting and stayed at a lovely inn, the Beechmont. From there we went to dinner at Bud's at Silver Run. It was about a 20 min. drive but let me tell you that was one of the best meals I have had in years. I don't know what kind of food you are looking for but if you want an upscale amazing meal, this would be it. Don't miss the Rock fish in a vanilla vodka cream sauce. Amazing.

On Saturday, you can go north on 34 towards Biglerville. About 5 minutes up the road there is a small BBQ restaurant (Hoffman's) on your left, with typical fare--smoked chicken, pulled pork, and so forth. They don't have a place to eat inside, but there are outdoor picnic tables if the weather is nice.

Once you get up to Biglerville, turn right at the second light. Go about a block to where the road curves to the left. Pomona's will be on your right. They have bakery items, wood-fired pizza, and a varying menu. The bakery goods are fantastic.

From Biglerville, you can vary your route by continuing east on 234, then taking either business 15 or the bypass back south to Gettysburg.

Both of these places are closed on Sundays.

Enjoy your trip!
