If you have a guide give you the tour of the battlefield, you will end up passing Captain Benders Tavern. Be sure to stop there after leaving the visitor's center. It's not far. I highly recommend the Maryland crab cake sandwich.

Had the prime rib Friday night dinner which was very good. The green beans were a little "crunchy" but I though they were good.

Tasty Black-n-Blue burger at a local hang-out. I've had other items on the menu but usually come back to the burgers. Reasonably priced. The waitress Lori does a great job and is always friendly.

Who knew this would be so good? Have been past hundreds of times, but never stopped. So sorry that we hadn't prior because what a little gem. Beers on tap are great from area and dinners were above high expectations. Be back soon....

I was surprised this place hasn't received better reviews so I guess I was pleasantly surprised. Good reasonable food in a town where there's not many restaurants available. We had a good sandwich with onion rings. They were all good but if you expect fine...More
