You know the ice cream is going to be good if the line is out the door, but the wait is never too long. I've tried several of their selections and have never been disappointed. There is a nice seating area outside, which is great for families.

One extra about stopping here for ice cream is that the building existed at the time of the battle. One can see scars from the bullets in the brickwork. The witness tree out front shows in many period pictures taken during the 1860's.

This place always has a long line, but that's because it has darn good ice cream! Hands down the best Ice cream joint in town. Try the Salted Caramel and Mint Oreo.

our family enjoyed an ice cream treat, a touch of history and old parlor games. It was a great snack stop on our tour.

The woman in the gift shop was amazing, giving my friends a background of the building and area's history (especially the witness tree), and had a great conversation with our group! The shop's also pretty adorable, particularly the witness tree table!

Great ice cream. Lots of excellent flavors. Had the butter pecan. Yum yum. Give you two scoops and you pay for one. My wife had the pumpkin and it was great. Cute quaint little place you can eat inside or outside

Some of the best ice cream I have ever had. The soft serve was delicious. The servings were ample and the prices were reasonable. I would visit here again and again when I am in the Gettysburg area. Although our tour guide said Mr. G's building is haunted, we dd not see anything out of the ordinary.

I never realized how much of a difference having homemade icecream is until Mr G's. The salted caramel was out of this world! The staff was friendly. the prices are extremely reasonable and the portions are heaping! I got a small cup and it was more than enough. This is a must do!
