Neat restaurant which is in the basement of an old building. Very small space. Food was good but felt it was overpriced. Gift shop upstairs had a lot of neat things in it.

Amazing food! Superb service! Camie was our waitress and was so friendly and professional. The only downside to this is when we ate in the tavern, the tables are extremely close together!

The Dobbin House is a wonderful place to visit! We first took the free tour in the fall of 2017, and when we returned in April 2018, made sure we visited again, for lunch! I will give a cautionary note here: be prepared to wait!...More

Dining at The Dobbin House is an experience in itself. It is a part of history. The servers are in period attire. The Tavern in the basement is a unique place to dine. Dining rooms are on the main and 2nd floors. Larger groups should...More

This is a nice restaurant and worth visiting. Atmosphere is lovely and meal was very good. We found it hard to get good food in G'burg and this was one of the few decent places we ate.
