We ate lunch on the patio at Farnsworth House. So interesting historically. Our table was next to a small waterfall from a spring. Just delightful! Great service and food. The tomato bisque soup was wonderful.

We stayed in the Jenny Wade room which entered from the garden, which was good for us. The staff couldn't have been more kind or accommodating. The food at the restraint is to die for, especially the crab cakes, a friend really likes the Tavern....More

Even though the place was mobbed with customers, the food was great and the staff did a great job keeping up with it all. Definitely recommend.

I stayed in the B&B for three night and had dinner there all 3 nights. The food was great, especially the game pie. I loved the 19th Century feel to the place. I also had a couple of spooky encounters. Overall, I would recommend this...More

I always enjoy this restaurant. It has servers in period garb and offers some fun old fashioned dishes like game pie. They also have more modern fare like salmon, for those trying to eat healthy. The food is always very good, and the portion sizes...More

Always try to get good cuisine that represents the local fare. This did not disappoint! A group of five and we all enjoyed our dishes: Game Pie, Chicken Pot Pie, Pork Chops, and Crab Cakes. A must stop when eating in Gettysburg!

This is an historic building in the heart of the Gettysburg town skirmish line. Sure it is old ... that is a part of history. But it is comfortable and the food is hearty and filling. Had a great working lunch there during the 2017...More

Do you still do the limited servings with the waitstaff in the attire of the time? Are the attic conversations after the last serving still going on? I was there 44 years ago and it still is one of the most outstanding memories of my lifetime. What an amazing story. I'm hoping to bring 3 teenage girls through Gettysburg this August, and I'd love for them to have the same experience I had.
