We went to the "Underside" pub (in more ways than one) in the basement of the Altland House. We waited 45 minutes for our drink order, more than an hour for our food, 90 minutes total before we got water and when it came, it was as dirty and cloudy as old dishwater and we had to send it back....

Woundful experience. Have their own brewery, center square. Had the chocolate stout very good. The shrimp tortollini big portion and good. Wife's mahi mahi also good. Good selection of food on menu. Make the trip. Waitress very friendly and attentive.

Service was not only slow, even for a leisurely lunch, but poor. Food gets 5 stars - yummy and nice presentation. Slow to take our orders, slow to bring drinks and food, tea water not hot even on second attempt.

Husband and I had a perfect dinner here. We ate here a couple of years ago in the summer and sat outside. This time we were in the dining room which was beautiful. Fresh French bread served with a number of toppings (herb butter, oil, balsamic vinegar, parmesan and roasted garlic). Husband ordered the rib eye served with a potato... More

This place has a lot of history and is situated in the quaint little town of Abbottstown. We had the zucchini noodle dish, which was good, but a little too salty. Our waitress was very friendly and had a fun personality.

Have gone there from time to time and always fairly good. Came for Sunday brunch recently and was a mistake. Hostess very nice Ordered from the brunch menu crab crepes and unlimited pastries and fruit bar. The reason it's unlimited is because it's self limiting .... the pastries ... looked and tasted like airline food , the fruit unripe and... More

We stayed one night at the Altland House. The people were exceptionally friendly and courtesous. The room was very clean and well kept. The restaurant was "outstanding". After dinner we went to the pub in the basement where they had live music and a bartender that was a show in himself. The drinks were great. Craig, the bartender made us... More

We stopped here for lunch on a day long road trip. The kind of place you can take a break and relax before proceeding with the rest of the day's driving. We were quite satisfied with the decor, service and food. The menu included comfort selections as well as seasonal specials. The seating was plush and comfortable. The staff shared... More

Quiet little restaurant with in house brewery. When you enter, you can always expect chips or bread as a welcome. The food is good and a nice mix of traditional and non-traditional cuisine. The upstairs is more subdued than the downstairs bar area.
