Lexi Takacs recommends George’s at The Swope
I can’t say enough about George’s at the Swope!!! They have the best food in Gettysburg! I’ve been to just about every restaurant in the town and have always been thoroughly impressed by chef Karl at George’s. He has a great eye for detail and is so friendly. His menus are diverse and every item is delicious. If you have the option, try his salmon, crab cakes, ravioli, or creamed spinach!!! The house itself is beautiful and ornate. The owners are wonderful and restored the house back to better than what it was in its prime. Seriously, if you find yourself looking for places to eat in Gettysburg, try George’s. You won’t regret it! Romantic atmosphere * Great food * Good selection
