Gettysburg Restaurants Dish Out Enough Flavor To Feed An Army

Dining in Gettysburg isn't a one-dimensional experience. Contrary to your average small town, Gettysburg has a nice array of offerings. It may not be New York or San Francisco but that doesn't mean that Gettysburg is short on variety.

Dine in the town center on classic contemporary dishes at One Lincoln Food and Spirits and you'll be in for a treat. Adjacent to the Historic Gettysburg Hotel, you can people watch while you fill your belly with the bounty of upscale comfort food. The crab stuffed scallops with rock shrimp succotash will make you want to grab an envelope and write home to mama. Come casual or dressed up, the choice is yours, whether it be for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

If you're in the mood for more rustic comfort food in the bowels of a National Register of Historic Places, head to the basement dining room of the Springhouse Tavern. One of three places to eat at the 1776 Dobbin House Tavern, the building may be old but the Dobbin House stays busy. Be sure to order yourself an appetizer to hold you over, the wait during the rush can be noticeable.

For reasonably priced but healthy portioned comfort food, drive a few minutes away from the Historic District for a meal at Dunlap's restaurant. This family-owned restaurant serves good old fashioned homemade food that will leave you over satisfied.
