Best restaurant in Gettysburg bar none. My wife and I often make the 1 1/2 hour drive here just for the French onion soup, beef broth and onions which is covered in a thick layer of melted cheese. Excellent sandwiches.

We went to Dobbin House for an anniversary dinner. The service was excellent (Karen) and we had very comfortable chairs to sit in. The onion soup was amazing, the salad fresh with homemade blue cheese dressing, and the filets were over the top delicious. I ordered a crab cake to accompany the filet and it was tasty but not overly... More

We sat in the Spinning Room, in the fine dining portion of the Restaurant. The downstairs is super charming and more casual fare, but do not miss the AMAZING food and service upstairs. Heather was an excellent, friendly server and her food recommendations served us well. Best meal we have had in a while. Order the crabcakes-- we were leary,... More

Step back in time! Built in 1776, part of the Underground Railroad, amazing furnishings, the entire complex is stunning! Ate in the dining room not tavern. Onion soup very good, salad with homemade Bleu cheese dressing was outstanding. Homemade breads delicious, duck very good, veal amazing, baked potatoes yummy with chive sour cream. Greenbeans Almondine cooked perfectly. Cheesecake really good.... More

We ate here for a lunch and a dinner and both were in the downstairs tavern. For lunch I had the flatbread steak sandwich. At $16 I figured that I was in Gettysburg, so that's what you have to pay for the atmosphere and experience. It arrived and I actually had to take some of the steak, not the extras... More

Gettysburg is not a foodie's delight, so having had lunches at the Dobbin House for many years, I thought that the best it had to offer was fried chicken and lunch meats. Then I took my family here for dinner. Suddenly, I was transported back 200 years to an enchanting tavern with servers dressed for the 18th century and food... More
