“An outstanding restaurant near a tourist area”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

We stopped in at Herr's Restaurant for dinner after a day at Gettysburg Military Park. We were seated in an enclosed porch area overlooking the country side.

Our server arrived and introduced himself and asked if we had been at Herr's before. We said no and he then proceeded to tell us about the menu, etc. We decided to split the crab cake appetizer and the filet mignon dinner. I ordered the lobster salad.

Before the appetizer arrived, we received several pieces of pumpernickel and pretzl bread with a roasted garlic/oil spread. Then we were served a red pepper hummus spread. Both were excellent.

The crab cakes came and were the best we have ever eaten. They simply melted in your mouth. My lobster salad came and was loaded with lobster pieces in a ginger marinade.

Our steak arrived with asparagus and twice baked potatoes. We had ordered the steak medium rare, but it was actually more medium. It was delicious, even though not cooked entirely the way we like.

We had an excellent meal and plan on returning.

“A must stay!”
Reviewed 4 May 2014

Room 1 was very relaxing with a claw foot tub. Very close to battlefield and attractions. We will be staying again in the near future.

“Fine dining in Gettysburg”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

Well prepared American cuisine served in an historic building (keep an eye out for ghosts) by a friendly, well trained staff. Best restaurant in Gettysburg as far as I can tell. Out of town center with plenty of free parking and nice grounds.

“This restaurant is a MUST visit”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Quality food made mostly from local ingredients cooked to perfection. Inventive dishes. Staff was incredibly friendly, attentive and accommodating. Chef Cody has amazing skill and talent in the kitchen and our server Josh was patient and helped us make great selections from the menu. He even suggested a wine that would pair well with the dishes we chose. Also very funny. Great quality food prepared by a skilled chef served by a fantastic waiter. Seriously, what's not to love? I live in NY and driving to Gettysburg for dinner alone would be totally worth it. MUST VISIT!!!!!

“good food, but really slow”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

my wife and i ate at this restaurant this past weekend. the setting was charming in an old historic inn and the food was very good, but a little pricey. however, dont go if you dont want to wait a long time. there were only 6 or 7 tables occupied and the meal took over 2 hours. the service just did notseem too concerned about getting our food out. I dont know if they were understafffed, but i hope they fix it as this restaurant had a lot of upside.
