The restaurant is well known for its history and we decided to give it a look and try the local food. The house is quite old although not as old as they say and it has its walls covered with militaria souvenirs from the Civil War, mainly with things from the movies done on the Battle of Gettysburg. It was... More

We came during the warm spell in Feb. 2017 for a special event, featuring dinner and a speaker with his own theories on who Jack the Ripper really was, and his possible connection with Gettysburg. We have been disappointed with the Farnsworth the last few times we stopped in, but we were interested in hearing the speaker, so we went... More

Fantastic breakfast in a historic house. The setting is great. The service was outstanding. The food was on point and the prices were great. Totally worth it.

Food was fantastic, the Flatbread delicious and I wish I took a picture but I was embarrassed to do that. Service was great and the Tavern absolutely charming.

The best thing about this place: the water girl. She refilled our glasses 3-4 times while we were waiting for our food (which took at least an hour or more) and additionally while we were eating. She was very polite and I wish we could've tipped just her. As for the rest of the service, it was extremely slow. The... More

It was reasonably priced, service and food was great. The best part is there was so much to see as the restaurant was a museum with some very cool historical Cival War relics.

We ate here for dinner and went on there ghost tour after. The soup was great but the dinner was average at beat. The portions were small and lacked creativity. The service was good even though they only had one waitress for the whole restaurant! We also had one of there specialty alcoholic drinks and it was awful! Way to... More

We stayed here in October so the bar had several seasonal offerings. It was very nice to sit at the bar knowing we were only yards away from our bed. Good service.
