Samples of Menu Items

prime ribPrimal Rib of Beef
Melt in your mouth standing beef rib, cooked to your choice of doneness in a reflector oven with its own juice steeped therein. James': The larger portion goes to Dobbin's favorite son for being the first attorney to be admitted to our new county's bar. Smiths': The regular portion goes to Dobbin's stepson who's in trouble because he carved his initials (S. A.) on the mantle in the parlour.

lobsterBroiled Lobster Tail
Reverend Dobbin often journeys to Philadelphia for Synod Meetings. He delights in returning with sea animals that Mrs. Dobbin loves to cook over a clear brisk fire for family and friends just like you. This dish tastes admirably well. A favorite of this area, which Rev. Dobbin now calls "Gettystown"!

roast duck

Roast Duck Adams County
President Adams is proud of this tender 1/2 duckling roasted in our hearth oven with tart Adams Co. Apples and hard cyder. Served up just right with a delicious cyder sauce seasoned delicately with citrus herbs. A true taste delight.


Seafood Isabella
Truly worth coming miles for.... Rev. Dobbin's first wife, Isabella, left him this secret family recipe. Made of fresh vegetables with a medley of seafood's in a wine sauce, then simmered over hot embers 'til tender. Dishes up on a bed of pasta. It answers well.
