Gingerbread Man

5 S Courhouse Ave
Carlisle, PA 17013
717-249-6970

The ‘G-Man` has been around Carlisle for quite some time and was the first in the Gingerbread Man frachise.

A local favorite for their Monday night `Rocks and Wings` specials.

Expect the GMan to get crowded during the Carlisle Car show events and Dickinson Parents weekend.

    Haven’t been to the GMan in years. Had a good selection of hoppy beers. My husband really liked his sandwich, but my salad came directly from a bag and the blue cheese dressing was the worst I’ve ever had. I will go back for the beer, but won’t order a salad.

    Very Poor Service!!! The waitress seemed overwhelmed by her job. The kitchen apparently didn’t tell her they were out of some items when she put in our order. She didn’t let us know until she brought us the rest of our order, and then my husband had to order something else and sit and watch us eat our food while they cooked his. My order wasn’t right and I had to ask to have it corrected. We even had to ask for forks!! Never again!!!

    Actually, the Carlisle Gman might not have been the first. There was a little hole-in-the-wall in Mechanicsburg before the Carlilse version. The M-burg location was where the preseent M-burg Gman is but much smaller.

      I tried to contact the GMan about that but wasn’t able to get an answer. I’ll try to stop by sometime and find out for sure.

    I’ve had mixed experiences at the G-Man. During a weekday the service is usually Okay. However, on the weekends it can be very bad when the place is crowded with college students. I guess that’s to be expected, but if you want to have a meal I wouldn’t go there on weekends unless it’s summer and not so many students are around. The food is good and prices aren’t bad. Happy hour drink prices are good as well, at other times drinks are on the high side. Atmosphere is nice but nothing special – there are chains that do just as well.

    I love the G-man (Gingerbread man)! The food is great, the food prices are fair, a tad expensive for drinks (as with most places), great deals at happy hour and the place is fairly clean though the bathrooms are a bit stinky and small.
    During the holidays, car shows & with the college students around, it can be crazily over-crowded at times. However, the atmosphere is great especially the building itself with all of the carvings and decor. If you don’t want to go home smelling like a cigarette, I like the fact that there is a non-smoking & smoking section that are completely seperate. Also, if you can snag yourself a table outside in nicer weather, it’s great to sit out there even though service may be a little slower (and because it’s illegal, you can’t just grab a drink at the bar & walk outside with it…you must wait to be served).
    I’ve gone to this establishment many, many times over the past 20 years and have only been disappointed with the service a few (2-3) times when it was super busy…thus the person waiting on us didn’t get a good tip!
    I have recommended the G-man to many friends & associates.

    I’ve been there for lunch, twice, and I like the place very much. the food is decent, the service friendly and prompt. and if you appreciate a sense of history, Ben Franklin kicked back and had a few tankards of ale there. [Editor’s. ummm… correction? Since the G-Man was established in the 70’s, I think that it was unlikely that Ben was able to attend]

    I think this is a great establishment if you are in the mood for a sports bar. As for the first comment [Edit: The ‘first comment’ referred to is actually the comment made by Coleen Lew], It was Dickinson Alumni Weekend and they were overrun with students which is to be expected. Ordinarily, there is a mixed-age crowd!

    I will never again go to the place and would not recommned it to anyone other then college students since that is the only people that the place cares about. After eating there on Oct 30 were were ignored and waited for well over an hour to get cold food and not what we orders the waiteress Jodie never once came by to ask my husband and I if we needed anything or fill out drinks in all the time we waited. We we in the middle of the isle so it’s not like we could n’t be seen, This waitress was only interested in waiting on College kids and not the average person. POOR service and POOR food why would you want to go there unless all you want to do is drink
