We had the onion soup and the beefstew and both were very good choices. Come and put your name on the list and then go and walk arrond town, dont wait till you ate hungry because seems there is always a wait. We were told by a local that the place is owned by a couple from Ireland so recipes... More

I took a turn there hoping to find a "bit of good cheer" . The place was full of younger generation people but was a bit scruffy and "un-appertising". If you are over 40 I recommend giving it a miss!

This is a great Irish pub! The draft beer selections are delicious, the atmosphere on a Thursday evening was cheerful and boisterous - in just the right amount. Bar service was friendly while we waited a short time for our table for dinner. Wait staff on restaurant side was friendly and efficient. Great menu for bar snacks. a light meal... More

Always love to dine at local establishments and this one did not disappoint. We arrived early dinner hour (5pm on a Tuesday), so it was not crowded and were seated right away. I had to try the scotch egg (never had one in a pub). It was very tasty. Hubby and I both had fish and chips (I just had... More

This was the third time we visited the Garryowen and although the atmosphere was great, the service was average at best. The bar is always great, however, the dining room was slow and took too long to get waited on and served our dinners. The staff was friendly, just slow-and they weren't busy. We waited almost an hour for a... More

Food was ok nothing special. Pricey. Service was extremely slow. They were clearly understaffed as there were plenty of empty tables and lots of people waiting for a table and not getting sat. Bartender was friendly but very overwhelmed.

Last year was asked to leave because the bartender heard me curse while telling a story. Mind u it was just me, my 2 friends, the bartender and one other person at the bar at 2 o'clock in... More

We had hoped for just a bit more. Service was good and friendly. Atmosphere is nice and convivial. The food, however, was pretty mediocre. Bangers and mash and shepherd's pie. Neither was all that good. Something off-putting about the shepherd's pie. Good beer selection and lively bar crowd.

Whenever we are passing through the area either northern bound or southern bound we divert to Gettysburg for fish and chips or the awesome shepherds pie. A must stop. Great beer on tap also. TIP....bring quarters for parking meter

My wife and I had drinks here on a Wednesday night in April. We also had the shepherd's pie while on a food tour. The shepherd's pie was awesome and so was the cider they served. Highly recommend this place.

Gettysburg's only Irish-owned and operated pub offers a genuine taste of Ireland through "Ceol, cainte agus craic" Music, talk & fun. Open 7 days for lunch & dinner, The Garryowen, or "The GO" as it's know to our regulars, is as inviting as any pub found back in the old country with friendly service, a large selection of Irish whiskies, the best of Ireland's draft beers, and the perfect pour of Guinness which is complimented with a carefully picked selection of international and domestic premium beers, wines and spirits. Our kitchen prepares the most authentic Irish fare in the area from the owners' family recipes, with many ingredients imported directly from Ireland. Paired with traditional pub fare, made in house daily from scratch with local ingredients where possible. Our menu is sure to satisfy the most discerning of tastes. Enjoy your meal in our cozy dining room, by the fireplace or at the bar.The first and third Sundays of each month are a special treat for lovers of Irish music, with a traditional 'Seisun' from 2 til 5pm. Reservations are highly recommended.
