Below is our
New at Mountain Fall Foliage Vacations Site "Top Pick" Gettysburg Pennsylvania Restaurant List

For Lunch or Dinner:

Check out the interesting
Springfield Tavern & Restaurant located in the basement of the Historic Dobbin House built by Reverand Alexander Dobbin in 1776. The basement area where the Springfield Tavern is located once was a hidout for the "Underground Railroad" slave traffic. There are three small underground springs in the underground area - thus the origin of the Tavern / Restaurant name.

Waiters are dressed in period garb, and we had fast and friendly service. A couple of fireplaces add to the atmosphere. Prices were reasonable, and the sandwiches we had were very good. Families with kids are welcome.

Tip Tips The Springfield Tavern is a very popular place for lunch, so reservations would help if you have a group, altho they are not required. Opens at 11:30 am.

Fairly close to the National Park Service Visitors Center at 89 Steinwehr Avenue -- which is also Business Route 15 South. (717) 334-2100.
TipsTop Pick Gettysburg Pennsylvania Restaurant. 

 Dobbin House Web Site with History, Info, Directions, and Menus - no prices.
Check out our Historic Gettysburg and Gettysburg Battlefield page for more information and pictures on the Gettysburg Battle Attractions.

For Fine Evening Dining:

The Colonial Style
Alexander Dobbin Dining Rooms are upstairs in the Historic Dobbin House -- there is a Gift Shop & "General Store" on the first floor where you can hang out and warm up your plastic while you wait for your table.

The are six Dining rooms ranging from a Library to a Spinning Room and a Bedroom. Waiters are dressed in period garb and offer friendly service. Portions are generous, so save room for one of their great deserts. Reservations required.

Opens at 5pm. This Gettysburg PA restaurant has won several dining awards.  A Top Pick
TipsGettysburg Pennsylvania Restaurant.

Tip Tips Families on budgets might want to check out the menu prices before making reservations since "ambiance" has a price. The Dobbin House has a Web Site complete with information on their various businesses, some pictures and history, a location map, and menus (without prices)

89 Steinwehr Avenue which is also Business Route 15 South. (717) 334-2100

For Good Buffett Style Food - Lunch & Dinner:

General Pickett's Buffet offers fairly wide selection of "All you can Eat" Buffett - Pennsylvania Dutch style food with something to please everyone in the family. Good food and very friendly service. Reasonable prices - a childrens menu helps out for families. Features fresh baked bread & homemade soups + salad bar. Wide selection of desserts & homemade pies.

Lunch Buffett - 11:00 am thru 3 pm - Dinner Buffett starts at 4:30 pm Sundays at 11 am (Check web site below for possible seasonal changes.)

Pickett's gets high reviews from Individuals and Families on value and selection.

Tip Tips Check out the extensive display of Pennsylvania Covered Bridges Pictures on the walls. We discovered the head waiter was the photographer and knows a lot about local history -- maybe he still works there.

571 Steinwehr Ave, Gettysburg, PA - (717) 334-7580 - behind Gettysburg Battle Theatre - across from Cyclorama. To a Web page with more Info + Menues for the Gettysburg General Pickett's Buffet Restaurant - See the Home page for a location map Link. A Top Pick
Tips Gettysburg Pennsylvania Restaurant.

For Great Ice Cream Desserts - and Other Food Too

We have always liked
Friendly's Restaurants - whereever they are located - for Ice Cream and good food menu items of all kinds. Reasonable prices and their name is true to their good and usually prompt service - very friendly. They even have some specially priced menu items for the over 60 "Seasoned" crowd!

To Web Page for National Friendly's Restaurants with Menu details
(Including a great Ice Cream Desserts Page! - Gene's Favorite.) + a "Find a Friendly's" Address Map Link where you can see and print a detailed map of the Friendly's Gettysburg Pennsylvania Restaurant location.

445 Steinwehr Avenue - Gettysburg, PA -  (717) 337-1426 - Another Gettysburg Pennsylvania Restaurant
(& Ice Cream Desserts) Top Pick.Tips

A "Locals" Recommendation

A Gettysburg restaurant we had several good recommendations on, but that we did not actually get to try, is the "
Gingerbread Man Casual Dining & Spirits" Restaurant / Tavern. Were told by several it had good food and very friendly service. The small dining area can be noisy, but apparently can ask to be seated at a quieter dining area upstairs. We will definately try the Gingerbread Man next trip to see if it should be included as a Gettysburg Pennsylvania Restaurant Top Pick.

217 Steinwehr Ave. Gettysburg, PA  (717) 334-1100
