Hard ice cream, soft serve, fudge quite a variety of treats. If you are in town for the Remembrance parade, we got some of the best hot chocolate I have ever had here.

I have eaten at Kilwin's in Panama City, Fla. and also the one at Clearwater Beach, Fla. The ice cream there is so good especially the Salted Carmel. Looking forward to our trip to Gettysburg on Sunday so I can get my fix!

The ice cream and sweet treats are plentiful and the quality is excellent but price was a lot more than I anticipated. One scoop of raspberry ice cream, a half a piece of toffee, and one cashew bear claw was over $17. I have been to many sweet treat shops in my travels and I've never spent that much before.

I did NOT plan on having Ice Cream, just finishing diner at O'Rourke's. I was only curious as to what the candy selection looked like. Then, as if pulled in by some alien tractor beam, I found myself checking out the ice cream cases. I stopped at the Toasted Coconut, after somehow getting past the plethora of other great flavors,...

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I had the BEST pistachio ice cream I ever had. We visit here whenever we are in Gettysburg.

Kilwins ice cream is a must if you are lucky enough to have one near you. Pricey but worth it. My only disappointment wad that they were out of their #1 best selling ice cream which happens to be my favorite (salted caramel) and they weren't expecting more for 3 days! I had another flavor which was good also but... More

I loved the salted caramel ice cream. I agree with others that it is pricey but delicious and the fudge and other sweets looked good too.

Love love love salted caramel ice cream waffle cone! Is a bit pricey so I'll limit myself to one each time I visit G- burg (which is about 3 times a year).

Many, many ice cream flavors that are out of this world, but it is a little pricey. We were able to hunker down with other customers during a rain storm, and it was a cozy rest.

My fiancee and I went here twice because I disliked Mr. G's. For me, price isn't an issue when it comes to ice cream, but I can see how some families might suffer from sticker shock. Kilwin's chocolate fudge ice cream was amazing. There was no bland flavor as there was with Mr. G. It is $5.49 for a single... More
