This is a good option for lunch if you are visiting Antietam. It was recommended to us by one of the park rangers and we were satisfied. We had a pulled pork sandwich and the "Antietam" reuben panini, both of which were very good. They...More

Had the prime rib Friday night dinner which was very good. The green beans were a little "crunchy" but I though they were good.

Tasty Black-n-Blue burger at a local hang-out. I've had other items on the menu but usually come back to the burgers. Reasonably priced. The waitress Lori does a great job and is always friendly.

Who knew this would be so good? Have been past hundreds of times, but never stopped. So sorry that we hadn't prior because what a little gem. Beers on tap are great from area and dinners were above high expectations. Be back soon....

As a bar the place may be great, but the entrees on the menu were less than average. We should have ordered easy to make burgers instead of complicated entrees. Great beer selection on tap, and the soup and salads were good.

The staff at this pub were friendly and happy to tell us about the town. The night we stopped in was All You Can Eat Wings night and the joint was packed by locals. The French Dip was a bit heavy for my taste, but...More
