The Pub & Restaurant Story

Over the years, The Pub & Restaurant, located on the historic Lincoln Square in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania has seen various names and ownership. However, in April 1996, a more permanent presence arose. Long-time Adams County resident Lisa Grim employed the expertise of local contractors such as Cy Deitz & Co., Inc., Clarence Andrews Contracting, and Coldsmith Roofing, among others, to bring forth her vision of The Pub.

Detailed painting and remodeling of the restaurant brought out the deep blue color which is the trademark behind the character of design. In January 1997, the dining room and bar were completely revamped to enhance the dining room’s privacy with high backed booths. This renovation also brought a classier appeal to the bar without losing its original comfort and hometown feel.  During 1998, we added a second floor to offer quality banquet facilities for any type of event.

Artist Billy Jones’ thoughtful brushstrokes created wall murals in both the banquet room and dining room. His talent brought alive the angelic faces of children of many of the local Gettysburg contractors, employees, and other community members who call The Pub “home”.

The Pub was engulfed in flames during the cold month of February 2001. Doors reopened during April of 2002. Click here to learn more about our historical fire.
