This place, despite some of the average reviews, had excellent homemade ice cream. I think it's subjective, but the homemade ice cream was so good we stopped there twice! Don't forget to check out Mr. G's shop around back with some Life is Good apparel. Cute store, we bought 4 or 5 items.

The ice cream here is amazing! I wanted a brownie sundae, made to order, and they accommodated whatever I wanted at the original price. I was very impressed and will always stop back when I'm in Gettysburg!

It's ice cream...it has to be good!! The homemade ice cream was very delicious. My husband and I enjoyed having our dessert here and sitting outside on the nice benches and just people watched.

Our family of six stopped here for ice cream after a ghost walk. The waffle cones were good, but the ice cream wasn't as good as the reviews led us to believe...average ice cream. We didn't try the soft serve, so maybe that's were we went wrong. The snow cone was good according to my 10 yr old.

This is the best ice cream place! They have amazing flavors and cheap prices. Definitely recommend going here during your visit to Gettysburg. It was so good we went twice during our two day visit. They also have a great gift shop.

I wasn't like, "holy schmoly, this is awesome!" but I did enjoy my banana split enough to go back. My husband had chocolate peanut butter that he enjoyed, although he likes Sunset a bit better. Not horribly priced, so it was an overall good experience. Additionally, there was a nice artist who sat out front and did our portrait for... More

We wanted a treat and were drawn the the homemade ice cream. It was quite yummy, and it was a good value. The portions were appropriate for the price. The service could have been friendlier. Although the teenagers working there were efficient, they did't smile and seemed impatient.

The regular ice creams were good, but the soft serve was outstanding. Creamy, dense, some of the best soft serve ice cream I have had and I come from an area that has excellent ice creams. The area around the store is hopping at night.

You can't visit Gettysburg without stopping by Mr. G's. They make the best homemade ice cream. The staff are very friendly. They also offer soft serve, but I would recommend the hand dipped (homemade). The prices are also very reasonable.

I love living in this awesome town of Gettysburg. When my hubby asks me where do I want to go for an ice cream treat, I always pick Mr. G's. That's because I LOVE their chocolate peanut butter ice cream! It's by far the best I've ever had EVER!!! They have hard and soft ice cream. Expect a long line,... More
