We recently visited during a mid week winter trip. We really enjoyed it. Were seated quickly, service was good. It was a winter weeknight (Tuesday) and still a full house. That being said I would be hesitant to come "in season" because they do fit a lot of tables into the tiny dining areas. I only say this because I... More

Once you find the door around the left side, prepare to enjoy a wonderful experience of food and service in a beautiful historic space. Would like to go back to get the house tour!

The entire meal was wonderful and service was just as good. I had the scallops and my husband had the pork dish and the sauce was almost like a dessert, it was that good, would definitely return.

Took in-laws for dinner and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Drinks, salad, and steaks were well prepared and tasted great. Will return in the future and try out the Tavern next time for a little more relaxed environment.

Atmosphere of Springhouse Tavern was warm, rustic and cozy! Drinks were yummy-hot apple ciders with liqueur and great beers on tap! Had crabcakes which were good. My husband had a sandwich. Best part of food was the salads and homemade dressing. Great place to visit!

There was a glowing fire in the hearth as we entered. The ambience is wonderful. They gave roses out that evening for Valentines Day, which was a nice surprise! We were led upstairs through different dining rooms to the museum area where our table was. Our meal was delicious and our server super friendly. Highly recommend if you're in Gettysburg.

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!!

Thank mlowder500
