The ice cream is delicious, but overpriced. A family of four with single waffle cones cost just over $25. I did not see prices posted anywhere, so I was a bit surprised. A nice, but expensive way to end the day in Gettysburg.

When I go Gettysburg, this is one of my favorite stops. Their fudge is made right there in the shop, as are the other candies. The staff is very friendly and helpful. So if you want some really good sweets, this is the place to go!!!

When you first walk in, it smells amazing!! There is so many different treats you can choose from. The strawberry cheesecake ice cream was okay and their waffle cones were AMAZING!! Staff was friendly. There wasn't much seating which was a disappointment and their credit card machine did not work. Very over priced though.

We had ice cream here. It was good, a little soft for my tastes, but good. However, for a small cup of ice cream it was $5. I think it was a little much.

Every time I go to Gettysburg I always visit Kilwin's. The ice cream is terrific and the biggest problem is which flavor ice cream to chose (they do offer taste samples) although the chocolate-peanut butter ice cream is incredible!
