There’s nothing more comforting than a piping hot cup of soup. The Dobbin House Tavern’s baked king’s onion soup is a customer favorite, rightfully so. It’s made from scratch, with beef and onions and is topped with a variety of savory cheeses that melt perfectly on top. Dive into a bowl of this soup for warm and cozy deliciousness.
Sometimes there is nothing more warming and delicious than a bowl of chili. Gettysburg Eddie’s epic chili is topped with a generous amount of melted Monterrey jack and cheddar cheeses, crisp red onion and a piece of grilled garlic bread for dipping.
Thirsty Farmer Brew Works’ apple cider donuts are, indulgent and completely comforting. Order this dessert to share among a group, or if you’re feeling in need of extra comfort, order them all for yourself. Delicious, warm apple cider donuts rolled in cinnamon sugar. To take the comfort to the next level, enjoy their locally made ciders and beers while you are there.
If you’re super hungry and craving serious comfort, try Appalachian Brewing Company’s mile-high meatloaf. It’s a classic dish, taken to the next level. A thick slice of Texas toast is topped with Black Angus meatloaf, garlic mashed potatoes, stout-infused gravy and crispy, fried onion straws. Pair this with one of Appalachian Brewing Company’s housemade craft beers or sodas for extra comfort.
Nothing says comfort like a bowl of creamy mac and cheese, and One Lincoln’s version takes mac and cheese to the next level. Freshly cooked macaroni noodles are coated with creamy crab béchamel sauce and topped with herbed brioche croutons.
The Garryowen Irish Pub’s authentic Shepard’s pie is a family recipe from County Armagh in Ireland. Ground beef and vegetables are combined with a rich gravy and are topped off with lightly browned mashed potatoes. Dig in for some serious comfort.
The Farnsworth House’s chicken pot pie is prepared in the traditional Pennsylvania Dutch style – egg noodles, potatoes and chicken are combined and topped with a flaky crust, then baked until golden, bubbling and delicious.
The Blue and Gray’s warm crab dip is sure to be an instant hit. Smother some fries in the delectable dip and you’ll feel too comforted to count calories.
