Diner Reviews
  • "Friendly welcome and good, well presented, mid-market food in a quiet, country environment. The table service was willing and enthusiastic if a little amateur. It was a quiet night and the ambiance was somewhat stilted and staid. However, the bill was reasonable and we enjoyed the meal and were pleased to meet the sous chef who introduced himself at the end of the evening."

  • "Had lunch here with a Civil War tour group and returned twice on our own during that period. Our travels took us thru Gettysburg this year, so we stopped by for lunch. As usual, everything was fantastic. This is a historic building dating back to the CW. Wish we had stayed for dinner, as it is very romantic and the menu items more extensive. We'll be back"

  • "The food was terrific! The atmosphere was wonderful. The service was slow but I think our server was also tending to a large group in the next room. The portions could have been larger for the price. Very pricy but nice for a special occasion!"

  • "really enjoyed our time here. single biggest distraction: the main road-across the street view was stunning. food spot on. service great. people friendly. pub out back delightful. good time!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "On our second visit, Inn at Herr Ridge has improved. Service is more professional and the food standards remain high. Scallops with polenta was superb. Fillet minion was properly prepared and filled up an eleven year old. The only letdown was a cherries dessert which missed. We will be back."

  • "We go to The Inn at Herr Ridge on special occasions for the usually consistent good food and service. This time, however, we were disappointed in the details: the mixed green salad and toasted walnut was slathered in dressing, the white wines were stored and served at room temperature, and the creme brulee seemed unusually sweet. The entrees (sea bass and scallops) were tasteful and well-presented. The server was attentive and friendly. This experience would not dissuade us from going back, but we were left with a less than perfect experience at one of our favorite fine dining establishments."

  • "We enjoyed our dinner at The Inn at Herr Ridge tremendously! The food was excellent, creative and beautifully prepared; ambience was delightful and elegant, and the wine list had breadth and depth."

  • "We all enjoyed a very pleasant evening with excellent food offerings and a very comfortable ambience. We enjoyed a very warm hostess welcoming and a private dining area which was much appreciated. Unfortunately, Brittany's table service was not quite up to that same level. The wine service seemed to take forever. When the bottles were finally brought to the table and opened (one broken cork), she discovered we lacked glasses. Three of us asked to have the swordfish switched with the scallop accompaniments to which she said yes. The substitutions were never made. And she should have had some help serving the entrees rather than make 4 trips to the kitchen to serve them. We did appreciate the visit to the table by the sous chef."

  • "We had dinner there on a recent Saturday evening (6/14). The Inn is lovely, the service is very friendly! The food compared to the usual fare in Gettysburg -- Pub, fried food -- was excellent and fresh - a great welcomed change! And coming from NYC - the price is very reasonable!"

  • "Very good food for the area but a little on the pricey side. I have eaten better for less."

  • "Food was mediocre at best. Portion sizes were miniscule. Food was way over-priced. I would not recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "This is a lively reiterate after touring the battlefield & seeing the museum. The food is carefully prepared & shows well-chosen, fresh ingredients. The asparagus salad appetizer was quite flavorful, & on our 1st visit, the duck was especially good. The salmon on our 2nd visit was well-prepared & succulent. We enjoyed our visits & would return when in Gettysburg."
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "First, the food tasted very good. Out Of Stock on recommended wine. Second selection arrived warm, Sav. Blanc. Wine still tasted good.NZ does SB nicely. 20 minutes after we had ordered a starter we were asked for the rest of our order as the Chef wants the entire order in before he will start the first course. So the Starter "became" an "after thought". Oysters great. Crab Soup Very Good. Seared Scallops- sautéed not seared. Risotto made with white rice, not Arborio still VGood. Duck, asparagus, toasted barley, pickled wild mushrooms, peppercorn demi- sounds like a powerful dish. Very subtle and complex still tasted VGood. Portions are generous. Food tastes good even if it is not as it reads. Quite Pricy. "

  • "This was a great experience. The wine was great. We had scallops and the catch of the day. The strawberry/rhubarb cobbler with ice cream was excellent! A great find!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The ambiance on location of this historic in on the Gettysburg battlefield is surpassed only by the outstanding quality of the food and service. We enjoyed the entire evening and felt welcome from the moment we approached the hostess station. Everything was flawless - the food, drinks and service. We'll be back next time we're in Gettysburg."
    Dined on 5/21/2014
  • "The food, price and inn were excellent. I had a salad and my husband had the soup and both were excellent. My husband had the chicken and I had the ahi tuna and both were fantastic. The problem was that is took soooooo long to get the food that is upset the entire evening. We waited forty five minutes for our salad and soup and at least twenty minutes after that for our entree. We may go back but only if we have a lot of time to spare."

  • "We went here for the first time last weekend after reading it about on Trip Advisor, and enjoyed a delectably tasteful meal with excellent service. I would have given them a 5-star rating but for the fact that when I made the reservation, there was no mention of the fact that on the day we were dining, their regular menu would not be available. I will say that the "special" menu for that day was quite good, but we had invited friends to join us and had given them a link to check out the menu beforehand so surprising them with being forced to spend $66 each was awkward. Other than that, the food is wonderful here and we will be returning. We'll just be checking the menu before we arrive."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at the Inn at Herr Ridge. We had never been before but decided to celebrate college graduation there with our guests for graduation. The food and service were very good. It was a little awkward to be seated at a table for 10 in the function room when we only had 6 people, but we spread out and felt very comfortable after that. There was a special menu for graduation that had plenty of options for everyone, but the full 4 courses was required. If you are going over what might be a special weekend, I would recommend confirming this before you go. "

  • "Our party of 4 was anticipating rendezvousing and having a nice dinner. Well we had plenty of time to catch up because of the incredibly slow and inept service. Our reservation was at 7:30 pm and they took 10 mins to set our table when it did not appear to be that busy. They apologized for the delay but little did we know that would be the least difficulty of our experience! We ordered drinks and then not too much later ordered dinner and a bottle of wine to be opened with dinner. To cut to the chase, our dinners were delivered so late we scarfed them down and got out of there at 10pm. The food was overdone and not very hot. There was a table of 3 who were seated next to us well after us who were served and leaving before us. So you get it"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "Very good food, but small serving size for appetizer. There was a long wait for the food. While I understand that everything is made to order, the wait was longer than most restaurants of similar quality. We waited 20 minutes after we ordered food to receive bread. When I asked the server if we could get some bread, she said our bread was "almost up." I expected fresh from the over bread....but this was not the case. "
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "What better way to eat in Gettysburg than in a historic building. The food is also great! I had the half turkey sandwich and cream of crab. The cream of crab was sweet, salty and decadent from the corn, bacon and Swiss cheese, it is a must try!"

  • "Impressive setting with excellent food and service. "

  • "We found this through reviews online. The food was good but heavy and rich so don't expect low-calorie. Great atmosphere and the best food we've had in our 5 separate visits. "

  • "Dining at The Inn at Herr Ridge was a perfect ending to a day in Gettysburg. This is our sixth time to return to Herr and it is a pleasure each time. The Oysters Rockefeller are the best!The steak for two was perfectly cooked! The creme brulee and cheesecake were divine. The staff treat you like you are royalty. We will return whenever we go to Gettysburg or Caledonia State Park."

  • "Took my wife to dinner for her birthday. Everything was excellent. Food outstanding especially the soup. Great wine selection. Can't wait to return for another evening."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "From the attentive and welcoming hostess, to the amiable and conscientious waiter/bartender, we could not have asked for better service. They have a wide selection of wines. Among the tasty dishes were jumbo lump baby crab cakes set in a local horseradish remoulade and spicy micro greens. A salad of Spanish Baccala, arugula and a miso and pickled ginger vinaigrette was a surprising refresher of contrasting tastes. A special for the evening was a monkfish on a potato purée, it served as the mainstay for a most pleasant evening."

  • "In a tourist town, a restaurant can survive with mediocre food and service. Therefore it is surprising to find a gem with quality at every turn. This is the Inn at Herr Ridge. We were warmly received on a cold evening and given a choice table. Service was attentive without being pushy. The creamy mushroom soup was superb, the scallops done to perfection, and the fresh bread pudding a perfect end to the birthday celebration. We have paid much more for less satisfying experiences."

  • "The food was delicious but we were seated in what seemed to be the lobby instead of in one of the quaint, historic rooms. Make sure you request one."

  • "This was Valentine's Day. When I called for the reservation, I was told the earliest available was 8:00 pm. Called back and asked if we could get a table on the porch (we had eaten there before). The person on the phone said that should not be a problem at that time of night. When we arrived at 7:55, I reminded them we had asked for the porch. We were directed to the bar to wait for the table. Twenty minutes went by until they came to get us. When they did come to get us, they directed us into a room away from the porch, but we passed the porch and saw tables available, with other people eating there too. Didn't want to make a scene, so I dropped it."

  • "We traveled to Gettysburg to visit Gettysburg College. This is a great little restaurant with an outstanding wine list and excellent food from ap to desert. Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "We thoroughly enjoyed the Meal for Two: 20 oz bone in prime rib with Demi glacé, salad, seasonal veggies, and bread. You definitely pay for the quality but it is well worth it if celebrating a special occasion. We also tried the pork belly appetizer. It was melt in your mouth delicious! The sous chef personally came out towards the end of every dining party's meal to greet them. The entire experience was unique - right down to the wildlife visitor in the enclosed porch where we were seated (a bat)! Every haunted BnB needs a bat though. They offered to move us but we were not bothered by the bat, and he eventually made his way out with a little help from the owner. If you stay at the BnB or are in Gettysburg, this is a must try."

  • "We are locals and had only been once before 18 years ago, decided to go for New Year's Eve. It was very nice. We waited at the bar, it was great and bartender very friendly. It was about 20 minutes past our reservation time, but it was a holiday. The food was delicious and service was great! The only negative was the little old hostess lady, she was very condescending and NOT friendly. But think we will add it to our occasional stops, especially the bar."

  • "I picked this restaurant for my birthday, I enjoyed the history with the building and the nostalgia. I was disappointed that they do not have any entrees of that time period, however, the food was nicely presented and delish. The wine list is extensive and the best around Gettysburg, but they do not carry the local wines. Our server was attentive and helpful. The atmosphere was not romantic, it was a busy night with tourists coming in and staying at the B & B, they were being shown around while you were eating at your table. The menu is a la carte and expensive. Recommended for history buffs or wine snobs."

  • "This place is a bit out of town on a main road, truck traffic was a bit distracting as we sat in what was once the front porch facing the road. They have a large wine list and we had a bottle of Jordan Cab, very nice but a bit overpriced. Soup was potato leak, which we split and it was good and earthy tasting. We then had a chef's course of pickled yellow beets, something I very much enjoyed. My main was scallops and shrimp over orzo with pumpkin sauce. Great fall meal, my gf had the filet, locally grown and super tender, with a side of asparagus and piped mashed. We split a hot apple turn over with salted caramel sauce for dessert. Our waiter was excellent and very attentive. Overall about a 4 out of 5."

  • "All food is local except for the fish - everything is from a 30 mile radius. Had the short ribs that were absolutely excellent and the veggies were spot on. Service was right on without being overbearing and server was quite knowledgable on the menu and made you feel special while you were there. Will definitely go back again - SOON !"
