Beautifully restored home. We were in the basement tavern before dinner, what a neat place. The original cistern is still in the tavern. The service and atmosphere were wonderful. The food just so so.

I think the headline just about says it all. The food was great, with a great menu selection. The prices were very reasonable. And the historical ambience is perfect. Oh, and our waitress was very friendly.

We had lunch at the Dobbin House Tavern based on the overall ranking on TripAdvisor. But found it to be just another overpriced tourist trap which did not live up to the hype. When we arrived the hostess pointed to a table and told us...More
