Notice! Please try to make your dinner reservations for our Alexander Dobbin Dining Rooms about a week in advance! Due to the increased number of visitors, the lack of staff availability, other area restaurants being closed on certain days, the Dobbin House is experiencing wait times for reservations and seating. In our desire to maintain the same high quality of service that our loyal guests have come to expect in our 47 years as a restaurant/tavern, we are compelled to limit the number of people we serve each day. Unfortunately, this means our reservations fill up quickly. We truly regret that we cannot serve all those who call for a reservation for our full-dinner menu on the same or in a few days. The best way to make sure you get a reservation is to call ahead. The Dobbin House staff thank you for your understanding, cooperation and patience!  

Note: Our Springhouse Tavern menu, as always, does not take reservations for this wide selection of dinners, sandwiches, salads and popular cocktails. Seating here is first-come, first-served. This menu is often busy and, like most other area restaurants, is seeing wait times to be seated. We recommend that you arrive early.

The Gettystown Inn Bed and Breakfast is also OPEN DAILY and taking reservations

The entire Dobbin House "family" thank you for your continued support!

Dine in Gettysburg PA's Oldest, Most Historic Home 
"...Beautifully and Authentically Restored" 
and open to the public as a colonial restaurant.

Four Score and Seven years before the Civil War Battle of Gettysburg, (1776), 
Reverend Alexander Dobbin built a house to begin a new life in America for himself and 
his family. Today his home, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a colonial 
restaurant where candlelit elegance, superior food in abundance, and gracious service bring back 
the sights, sounds and tastes of two centuries ago.  AAA rated. The friendly hospitality of the Dobbin House
extends to the Springhouse Tavern, 
Gettystown Bed and Breakfast, Country Curiosity Store, Abigail Adams Ballroom,
bakery and secret "underground railroad" slave hideout.
