“Good Food. Great Decor!”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

We ate in the Springhouse Tavern of the Dobbin House. The atmosphere took us back to the 1800's with candlelit tables and the overall décor.
Service was a little slow for no busier than they were. It took over a half-hour to get a hamburger and chips, but the wait was worth it once we bit in to our burgers and home-made chips.

“Good food! Wonderful atmosphere!”
Reviewed 3 May 2014 via mobile

My family has eaten in the tavern in the basement several times. The food is always good but it is the ambiance that keeps bringing us back. It is a fun trip back in time with servers in period costumes and candle lighting. Our only complaint was that the specialty drinks we ordered were small.

“Good dining close to town”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Good hearty American fare with emphasis on meat and potatoes dining. Interesting historic building and a well trained staff. Lots of battlefield tourists including the buses parked along the side of the building. Still the food is good if not spectacular.

“Like stepping back in time!”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Not only is the food great, but the atmosphere is even BETTER.
All servers are in period costume, role playing to fit the part and all the tables have a wax candle on them. It really ties together the experience. Very cheap in price too. Much better than the one nearest the ice cream parlor.
