Hickory Bridge Farm Restaurant

We would like to welcome you to Hickory Bridge Farm, which is located in the country, at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, 9 miles west of Gettysburg. The "Farm" has been owned and operated by the Martin family, who has been in the hospitality industry for over 38 years.

The restaurant is located in a beautiful barn that is over 160 years old and is adorned with hundreds of farm related antiques. Fine linens and old fashion place settings are on each table. During the summer months, the restaurant is decorated with fresh flowers from the farm's garden.

Hickory Bridge Farm is well known for their hospitality and their delicious dinners. All farm dinners include American foods that were favored by the area's German settlers and are family recipes. Each meal begins with appetizers served from an antique sleigh. A salad is served with our own warm bacon dressing, complemented with homemade spiced peaches, fresh potato bread and apple butter. Several entrees are served family style including our popular Crab Imperial. With the entrees, several vegetables are served as well as stewed apples and our delicious corn fritters. Like all farm dinners, a meal would not be complete without a homemade dessert.

The serving hours at the farm are unique. We serve to individual guests on Friday and Saturday evenings from 5:00 to 8:00 and on Sunday from 12:00 to 3:00. Large parties are accommodated Monday through Saturday at noontime. Special group menus are available. Reservations are very important so be sure to call early so we have enough potatoes in the pot!

Hickory Bridge Farm is a wonderful place to enjoy the sights, sounds and tastes of south central Pennsylvania. In addition to the restaurant, we also feature a country store, a farm museum a gift shop and also a lovely bed and breakfast. We hope that you plan to visit the farm soon.
