It sure seemed like the people who worked there were not very happy. No greeting, no goodbye from surly man who seated us. Waitress forget to get an ordered drink. Lots of menu items unavailable.

We walked in and were one of 3 tables sitting at the restaurant. Our waitress took 20 minutes to talk to us. We sat down at 8:18 p.m. We didn't get food until 9:30. Our crab mac n cheese smelled and tasted like dead fish. We were very disappointed.

our server was extremely subpar, and seemed flustered every time she checked on us, and with only 4 other tables occupied and other servers in the restaurant, it should’ve been manageable. she took close to 10 minutes to even greet our table and we watched her talk to other employees during this time. I ordered the duck, it was extremely tough, the sweet potatoes were cold and the berry compote was just berries tossed on the plate. overall, it was a subpar experience.

Always enjoy breakfast here. Service is good & food delishious. Apple pancakes & french toast are favs - omlettes are nice too & not too big. If its a busy time make reservations even if you are staying at Gettysburg hotel - we’ve had experiences unable to get a table.

All parts of our meal from cocktails to entrees were very good. The Arancini risotto balls as an appetizer were unusual and tasty. The stuffed scallops were pricey but excellent, as was the Amaretto duck breast.

Service was quick and efficient, especially for a Tuesday night. They have a good system with waitresses, bus staff and serving staff who keeps things moving.

Although not cheap, if you are in the hotel, then this is the best food in the area.

Meal was just "okay." I didn't realize it was part of the hotel next door. It came up when I searched for restaurants for "foodies" and I don't think that was accurate. There was nothing bad about the restaurant but it was just "meh" from this foodie. Non-foodies will likely enjoy.

It's attached to the Gettysburg Hotel, but it had much better food and was more affordable than most hotel restaurants. It's one of the few places in town that takes reservations. We ordered sandwiches and pasta, and all our plates were delicious, including my gluten-free friend's meal. The restaurant has outdoor seating, and the inside is open to the hotel bar, so we heard live music while we dined.

Mixed review: The Goat cheese ravioli was excellent, served with a flavorful sauce. The broiled grouper was terrible: Fishy smelling, looked boiled or poached instead of grilled, advertised as served with vegetables but actually served on a plate of white beans. Inedible. Service was very good; our server was friendly and concerned; she didn't charge us for the grouper. Nice selection of wines.

The service was poor and inattentive. The food was okay.

There were only five tables of customers seated in the restaurant. There were at least three servers. Yet, somehow, we waited twenty minutes without even a greeting from server. They partially bussed tables around us yet did not look our way. Finally we asked if we had a server. Nearly five minutes later someone finally arrived to take our order. Even the gentleman at the table next to us congratulated us on finally being acknowledged by a server, having noticed how long we sat ignored.

We started our order with soup and a bottle of wine. When the server brought the bottle of wine, it was already open prior to arriving at the table, with the cork sitting high out of the bottle and the foil climbing up the base of the cork. The server poured each of us a half glass of wine and placed the bottle on the table, instead of allowing me to taste the wine first.

The server's knowledge of the food was minimal. When asked about a particular dish, the server knew little about it, stating it was added to the menu just a couple weeks prior. The server tried to be helpful in her description but could say little more that what it looked like. This speaks to a management issue. When a new menu item is added, the staff should be given the chance to sample it so they can knowledge speak about the dish.

As for the food, the soups were decent. The goat cheese ravioli was good and worth the price. The cajun style shrimp was over seasoned. It took away from what could have been a good dish. It was so overpowering that I could barely eat half the dish before I became sick of the offputting flavor.

There is potential in this restaurant, but I will try the many other restaurants within walking distance before go back.

Eat on a Sunday night; early evening. Restaurant was not busy. Our table was ready when we arrived and we were greeted by the wait staff quickly. We chose small plates to share rather than entrees so our experience may not be representative. Food was pub-food quality with not much for distinctive flavors but ok. Would not consider upscale versus Elizabeth’s down the street, but it was a pleasant dinner.

The food overall was pretty good. Not amazing, but pretty good. It was definitely over priced for the quality, and the kitchen clearly wasn't able to handle a mid-sized event (wedding for the hotel) plus its restaurant customers. Our waiter was very nice and compensated us, but we would not recommend the restaurant, nor would we eat here again. There is simply way more available in Gettysburg where staff clearly values ALL of its customers.

One Lincoln was very disappointing. I tried the brûlée French onion soup and the bread, even though it was soaked in broth, was so hard it was almost inedible. I also got the asparagus and avocado salad, which had only two pieces of asparagus included. Seems like such a small amount since it was listed in the title. This was put on a large mound of lettuce that seemed to include iceberg. One highlight was the dressing which nicely complimented the grilled chicken. Was looking for a nice restaurant for a special occasion and I found One Lincoln to fall short.

This restaurant is convenient to the Gettysburg hotel and since we arrived at dinner time it worked for us. Ambience- not so much. Sad because with the historic hotel next door they could make it into so much more. We opted for burgers since we figured that was a safe option. They would have been good too, if not for the fact that they were over cooked. My husband ordered a twice baked potato which was a special they were having that evening instead of fries ( we were told there would be an additional charge). The potato came out partially frozen. Really?? Our beer order got mixed up too. Yuengling served in the first round instead of the black and tan that had been ordered. We didn’t even bother to say anything. This place is a mess sadly.

We ate at One Lincoln on a quiet, rainy Sunday evening. The food tasted like it had been prepared earlier and reheated for service. We had to flag down the waitress for everything as she did not come to our table except to deliver the food.

My soup was cold. Waffle fries cold. Hamburger over cooked. Asked for burger to be cooked med and it was a charred hockey puck.
We liked the decor and host very nice and informative about the area. We liked the location. Maybe during on season they be on their game.

Reservations recommended. We did arrive early but they accommodated us quickly. Server was attentive but not overly so. Food arrived in a timely fashion, was as described on the menu and quite good. Desserts were on the large size, we probably should have split one between us...

This is our second dinner at One Lincoln in less than a month; we enjoyed it so much last time we went back! The service is friendly, quick and polite, coupled with a restaurant’s relaxed atmosphere and historic views – all equals a great dinning experience. The food was very good...worth the second trip! However, the women’s bathroom was completely disgusting. Toilets not flushed, sinks were dirty, it smelled like a sewer - I mean to the point she turned around and walked out.

Our server was excellent! Food was very good especially since we were probably the last meal served that evening. We arrived late from out of town and the restaurant couldn’t have been more accommodating. I would recommend One Lincoln to anyone.

Overall good food and location but the acoustics need help— way too loud because of the proximity to the bar. Would be better served to have a door to that space so the dining patrons aren’t having to talk above the noise.

I had made last minute reservation on OpenTable, thinking it was for 630pm however when we arrived were informed the reservation was actually for 830 pm. I checked my email and that was indeed the time, not sure why 630 pm had shown up as an option when I had looked on my phone at 6pm. The host checked and actually was able to get us a table which was great, tucked away so noise was not a problem. Menu not very large but adequate choices. Kids menu was average but portions were good.

We requested a quiet table for a date night and were offered the smallest table in the restaurant crammed up against a wall. We opted to sit in the bar area instead. My husband and I were so excited to see brussel sprouts on the appetizer menu, as they are our go-to when available at other restaurants. These brussel sprouts came complete with what appeared to be water chestnuts, although after taking my first bite I realized they were sliced hot bananas - in fried brussel sprouts!!! Thank goodness our server was polite otherwise we would have asked for the check immediately after the brussel sprout debacle and looked for another restaurant. My husband and I have five kids and don’t get out much for date nights. It was really important for us to have a good time and this place did not provide. I’m all for supporting local businesses but I will not be back to this one.
