Gettysburg restaurant scene!

In a refurbished movie theater located behind the Gettysburg Outlets off Route 97 in Gettysburg, you’ll find a new restaurant and Cider House.  Mela Kitchen and Jack’s Hard Cider is focusing on a less fussy approach offering a more healthy menu.  Glancing through the menu you will find an Italian touch.  Serving Italian-style pizza that is baked in an oven constructed with imported bricks of lava rock, their pizza is exceptional.  Creative pizza combos include fennel and bresaola (dry salted beef) and apple and bacon.  There are many options to choose from.  They also offer 8 different small plates including smoked trout toast and grilled octopus.  And they have several pasta dishes to choose from.  Sweets include cider doughnuts, citrus olive oil cake, and chocolate budino (pudding).

Pairing with your meal, Mela Kitchen features 24 taps and of course the famous array of ciders made right on site.   In the near future, visitors will be able to take self-guided tours of the production area from a mezzanine overlooking the entire apples-to-canning process.   

As the Italian word for apple, Mela, represents a clean and fresh approach to food. The Mela Kitchen is located in the Jack's Hard Cider production facility. You will enjoy great food, the freshest cider and a glimpse of the amazing cider making world. Their primary mission is to provide their guests with a gathering space to enjoy amazing food, paired with Jack's Hard Cider, Atomic Dog Wines and PA produced libations.
