We ate here with friends on a Monday night. We were seated immediately without a reservation. We had a table for 4. Each table had a very large hurricane lamp with a candle in the center. This blocked everyone's view across the table. We moved...More

We visited the Dobbin House Tavern when on vacation. We were not disappointed! Atomosphere is unlike anything else we've been to and the food was just as awesome! Highly recommend!

Son in law recommended that we come here for the French Onion Soup 🍲 and it is phenomenal. The other food is freshly prepared and tasty! Service is great and friendly and you don’t feel rushed even when they’re busy!

We made a reservation and were seated fairly quickly. The tables were so close together that not hearing other customers full conversations is impossible. We had delicious oysters on the half shell for an appetizer along with a basket of breads. The salads were fresh,...More

This is a very unique place to eat. I LOVE history and old house. By old, I mean before the civil war, and this house is old. Built in the late 1700s, it definitely has a story to tell. It even was a stop on...More

Definitely make a reservation, and when you do, tell them it is for your anniversary. Specify you want the "bedroom" private location. This restaurant will accommodate your wishes. As a local, we used this very restaurant... More
