Federal Pointe Grill opens in Gettysburg

After 24 years serving steaks, seafood, desserts, and more to our community, the long-time owners of Gettysburg’s Dunlap’s Restaurant and Bakery, Ruth and Barry Dunlap, are moving to Texas to be nearer their son.

The restaurant, as well as its parking lot, has been sold to the adjacent Federal Pointe Inn owner Pete Monahan. Monahan said he closed on the site today and will reopen the restaurant tomorrow.

“The name of the new restaurant is the Federal Pointe Grill,” said Monahan. “This ties everything together with Federal Pointe Inn.”

The restaurant will be open Wednesdays through Mondays, with the same employees and some additions in the kitchen.

“To have more variety is a good thing,” said Monahan.

Monahan is partnering with Christian Walling, former owner of the Lucky Spot in Hanover and owner of the Lucky Food Truck.  Walling also helped open the Gettysburger Restaurant. “He has lots of experience in the kitchen,” said Monahan.

Monahan said the Grill will continue Dunlap’s focus on steaks and seafood. “Everything will be fresh and upscale; nothing frozen.”

Breakfast begins at 7:00 a.m. and goes until 11:00 a.m. “Eggs any way you want; a variety of omelets; wrap sandwiches; French toast; pancakes; eggs benedict.”

Lunch runs 11:00 to 2:00 and after 2:00 both lunch and dinner are served.

Although Monahan hopes to serve liquor in the future, right now the restaurant is BYOB, with no corkage fee.  Monahan reminded customers they can buy bottles of wine and six-packs of beer at the Federal Pointe Inn on the property.

Monahan hopes to host jazz musicians and update the restaurant’s décor in the near future.

He also hopes to open an antique shop in the carriage house behind the restaurant. “My passion is antiques. I go every week to auctions,” he said.
