Herr Tavern & Public House
Welcome to the Herr Tavern & Publick House, which was established in 1815 by Thomas Sweeney.  In 1828 he sold his tavern to Fredrick Herr. Mr Herr operated the tavern until his death in 1869 when it became the Reynolds Hotel for about 10 years, catering to the many tourists that were coming to the now famous historic Gettysburg Battlefield.  The Tavern then became a private residence until 1978 when the Herr Tavern was again open to the public.  We now offer fine dining as well as sixteen beautiful guest rooms and two parlors in our bed and breakfast. A walk across the parking lot will take you to The Livery, a lounge with pool tables, dart machine, jukebox and our new blacklight pool room. Enjoy fine American Cuisine in the Herr Tavern Restaurant from 11AM to 9PM, Monday through Saturday, and from 5PM to 9PM on Sunday.  Reservations are recommended.

Dobbin House Tavern
Dine in Gettysburg PA's Oldest, Most Historic Home "...Beautifully and Authentically Restored" and open to the public as a colonial restaurant. Four Score and Seven years before the Civil War Battle of Gettysburg, (1776), Reverend Alexander Dobbin built a house to begin a new life in America for himself and his family. Today his home, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a colonial restaurant where candlelit elegance, superior food in abundance, and gracious service bring back the sights, sounds and tastes of two centuries ago. It consistently wins Mobil Guide's highest area rating. The friendly hospitality of the Dobbin House extends to the Springhouse Tavern, Gettystown Bed and Breakfast, Country Curiosity Store, Abigail Adams Ballroom, in-house bakery and secret "underground railroad" slave hideout.

Located on the site of one of the earliest houses in Gettysburg, The Blue Parrot Bistro continues a tradition of hospitality which began in 1850 with the Mrs. Schwarz's Oyster Parlor. And now, what is a bistro? Is it casual, homey and relaxed or is it a sophisticated eatery? At the Blue Parrot, we think that both apply. Eclectic furnishings are complimented by an ever changing exhibition of artwork by local artists. Diners in black tie or blue jeans are greeted with the same friendly, unpretentious service. So, whether you are here for a cheeseburger, a beer and a game of pool, or you are here for an evening of fine dining, you have come to the right place.

Located downstairs from the more formal dining rooms of The Altland House, you'll find the Underside Restaurant & Bar. A popular local gathering spot, the Underside serves burgers and sandwiches as well as dinners.Enjoy our soup and salad bar in a cozy casual atmosphere. Underside hours are Wednesday through Saturday after 5:00pm. Live acoustic entertainment every Friday and Saturday from 7-11pm. Happy Hour from 5-7pm with $1.00 drafts.
