Stopped by for lunch. Had fish and chips and hot pretzel appetizer. The service was very good and food was delicious

The food is always great at the tavern. It’s a must for anyone visiting Gettysburg. The French onion soup is delicious and the crab cake sandwich is amazing.

I came back for the game pie. Delicious. All the variety of foods you get with your main course are different and delicious. Service was very good. Will go back again.
