I've wanted to visit the Reliance for some time, but never seemed to be in the area at 6 PM when they open. Last visit, I talked my dinner date into a stop after visiting the Diorama. I do love quirky places and thought it was a hoot going in as though it was a mine shaft although we did have a problem seeing the door knob.

No food is served but the beer was cold, and the colliery mural and mining tools were interesting to check out. I'm sure our bartender was Donna, as mentioned in other reviews. She's friendly and helpful and on top of customer's needs. I will certainly pay this delightful little bar another visit.

We are glad you were able to make it into the Mine. We don't open until 6 at night, I hope it was worth the wait. What more does anyone need other than cold beer and friendly bartenders?

I only spent a couple of hours there before going out for dinner, but got the whole mining town story from Donna and lots more interesting facts about the various authors that visit the premises. Well worth the visit. Great beer, service and conversation!

We are glad you enjoyed your visit to the Mine. It's a good place to hang our and grab a drink while talking to local authors. We just updated our beers and have some very good bottles on hand.

Thank you for your recent visit. It is a great place to plan the next day's adventures in Gettysburg. Did you also know that Gettysburg authors hang out on our bar? Monday, Wednesday and Friday, they might help you plan something exciting to see.

This place is great! After reading about it we had to go see it for ourselves. Very dimly lit bar but the atmosphere was perfect. Donna, the bartender was wonderful. She was extremely friendly and very attentive. Even in the dark she knew when we needed another beer! We could have talked with her all night. She made the end of our evening enjoyable. She is a gem!
A few others arrived and seemed to know everyone there. It was nice to just sit and listen to them talk. We were complete strangers but felt very included in their conversation.
No food is served but we went for the ice cold beer and the setting. It takes you back in time. They know their civil war facts. We will definitely go back on our next visit to Gettysburg.

We always have cold beer and great bartenders. Stop in anytime to talk to the bartenders about places to go, things to see in Gettysburg. A lot of the locals that come in can also give you some ideas of things to do. We are glad you felt very welcome in our bar.
