We arrived for an early lunch at 11:30 on a Sunday. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Children are welcome. There is a medium sized bar area and two dining rooms. Service was initially attentive, but dropped off as the dining room began to fill up. The food is standard brewpub fare, expanded a bit to include some entrees and salads, but nothing unusual. Unfortunately, the cheddar ale soup was cold, but the beer battered pretzels were good, as was the five cheese pizza. There were also complaints from our group about the sandwiches being cold and dry. There look to be between 6-8 of ABC's drafts on tap at any time. The quality of the beer was good, particularly the Celtic Knot Red Ale. I would stop in if passing through, especially for a growler fill, but would not go out of my way to eat here again.

I was frankly amazed by the food, which had a Germanic flavor. My wife and I stopped by after an Army sponsored seminar in Harrisburg, while driving home to Virginia. The food selection was good. Just about every food item was non-traditional. I had sausage with apple potatoes. My wife had pretzel chicken which she fortunately did not finish. I say this is fortunate because I got to eat the rest. The atmosphere is rustic lodge style. Nothing to brag about. Service was ok, but business was light. The locale is awesome. You are basically on the Battlefield. Oh, they also have beer you can take home. It's fairly decent beer as well. Overall worth eating at if in the area.

Always a great selection of year brews, seasonals and site specialties on tap. Food is great and can be easily paired with any of the beers. Service can be a bit slow, but often this is because of the number of customers not the service itself. Both the beer and food provide a wide range of options. A favorite of tourists and locals alike!

Stayed in Gettysburg over the weekend and walked here from our hotel in town on Sunday evening. The tables were full and there was 1/2 hour wait so we went to eat at the bar since we could sit right down there.

The service was not the best. It took a while before the bartender would acknowledge my presence. Finally had a hoppy trail ipa and my husband had the octoberfest . The ipa was good but the octoberfest was kinda flat in my opinion.

My husband and I had a chicken sandwich. I thought mine was good by my husband felt his wasn't cooked enough and had a bad texture. He send it back and ordered a burger instead. 20 minutes later, the burger still hadn't arrived so we asked for the check and left.

Consequently, I don't recommend eating here but there is a good variety of beer on tap . There should be a winner in there somewhere if you have the patience and capacity to try and find it.

Stopped here for dinner on a whim while driving through Gettysburg. I'm glad I did, because it was a very enjoyable experience. I order the black and blue pork medallions, which were very delicious with a unique flavor. Other items ordered by my group included the reuben and cheeseburgers, both of which were very good as well. I had the Hoppy Trails IPA, which I would rate as good but not outstanding. The root beer and birch beer were enjoyed by the children in our group. Service by our waitress was excellent - very friendly and helpful. If I return to the area in the future, I will certainly be eating here again.
