I had fudge ice cream and my husband had butter pecan. It was good, just not as good as I expected it to be for the reviews and price.

I was SO surprised and happy to see that my favorite ice cream place from St. Petersburg, FL was in Gettysburg! It didn't disappoint! The ice cream tasted the same and the service was even better! I'll be back!

Kilwins is a nice little ice cream shop that also offers homemade fudge and candies - all of it is wonderful. However, when compared to similar local homemade ice cream shops in Gettysburg their prices are a little pricey.

Any time we find ourselves in or around Gettysburg, we make it a point to stop at Kilwins. Just walking in the door gives you a sugar rush. Tasting anything makes it even better. I have never had a bad experience visiting here.

Got the Gettysburg Mud waffle cone. Really, really good. Be aware, there is no seating here so you will need to grab a bench outside.

Great ice cream, several flavors to choose from. Great on a hot summer night. Shop can get extremely busy during peak season, also a little pricey,but good none the less.

This is my 3rd visit to a Kilwins. None of them offer the same flavors of ice cream or have the same waffle cones. But what they do have is delicious. My husband wanted the peach he had at another Kilwins and they had it here. One of the other ones we were at recently didn't have the peach. He... More
