This was a really cool brewpub. It was quite expansive and done up in brass and hardwood. The bar was really long and L- shaped with high back barstools; very classy. I remember thinking, this place could never reach capacity.

The atmosphere was excellent. It was an upscale place, but nothing too high class. It had a bunch of sports on the tvs. The quality was good. The waitstaff was friendly and knowledgable about the house beers, which they offered in an eight beer sampled.

The food was slightly better than the run of the mill brewpub. I had this outstanding soup made with hefe. The sampler contained quite a few quality brews which I very much enjoyed. They also had a kick ass gift shop with beers to go.

Overall, this was a cool stop while on the way to see an 80's metal reunion tour at Hershey Park. I'll be back.

11/11/17... right in downtown Gettysburg, not far from the battlefield. Busy bustling open dining area with a large outdoor biergarten and ample parking. Friendly service with good beer knowledge and wide range of brews to bring. Samplers available in sets of four. Lots of take home options, growlers, half-growlers, and mix a six. Very good bar food, classic pub options with some extras.

Average beer, average food, typical for a chain
early evening (outdoor temp ~80), it was so cold inside the restaurant we had to escape to the patio!

This is the place to go when visiting Gettysburg. Fresh, new, and out of the congestion of the tourist area. Beers are great, and plenty of dining area to enjoy their fine food offerings.

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.

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.

I went here to eat after walking the southern end of the battlefield. I was expecting more from them then I got since I have visited the one in Harrisburg.

I only really had to drinks, the White birth beer, which was not that good and the scottish ale which was not as fresh as it should have been.

The service was lacking until closing time approached, then the bartenders and the hostesses started to become pushy.

But the root beer BBQ wings where good. Better then I have had at the past few places I have been. The main disappointment was the fact that the waiting staff gave me my meal before the wing appetizer.

Walked in an very similar to the Harrisburg location, but almost had the feel of a standard restaurant. They seemed to have the same menu and prices as the Harrisburg location, as well as, the core beers were there, with a couple specialty beers there. They also had Duvel and Delirium bottles. The staff was wrapping it up for the night but still extremely friendly. Even though they were getting stuff closed down they didn't mind us hanging out and chewing the fat with us. Had a very enjoyable time there and talked to some locals that really got into craft beer because of this place. I enjoyed it quite a bit.
