This has to be one of the best places to get ice cream. It is very little and quaint. The prices are good and poignant beat it anywhere in town. Glad I don't live closer or it could be a bad thing. Check it out!!

Visiting Mr. G.'s was a great experience for our family! The ice cream is some of the best we've tried. Even better is the service. Tasting is encouraged and portions are large! They even suggested half scoops for our daughter that wanted two flavors. Make sure to read the history on the wall of their sycamore tree and eat at... More

Mr. G's was one of the few Blue Hills Studio Multi-Color Double Storage Cart, W/15 Drawers resembled a firm gelato) and the soft serve in waffle cones.

This is real ice cream in tons of flavors. I loved the stick in the mud, chocolate with chocolate covered pretzels, and they had many forms of mint. The small was like two+ scoops and the medium was obscene. Just keep that in mind when you order. Worth the calories, order one smaller than you normally might.

a good place to stop for some ice cream while walking the streets of Gettysburg. good location across the street from the Farnsworth House. So after you take your ghost tour you can get a scoop.

I usually don't like ice cream unless it is homemade, or has interesting flavors. We have been to many different ice cream places already. This one was good. The homemade flavors were the best. We do have a better one that has outstanding flavors where I live, so I can't help to compare it to that. The flavors were good,... More

This was my 3rd trip to Gettysburg and I've visited Mr. G's every time. Other times I needed the ice cream to cool off, but this time it was pretty cold outside (snow flurries, in fact) but my son and I couldn't leave Gettysburg without stopping at Mr. G's. This ice cream is probably the best I've ever had (and... More

You simply have to treat yourself to their homemade ice cream. One of the best I'd ever tasted. It's extra creamy and absolutely delicious!

Wonderful ice cream shop in the Twin Sycamore House on Baltimore St. Nice sitting area. The ice cream was the best! Very creamy and flavorful. Service was awesome!!! I got a scoop of the Kahlua and Pumpkin. I loved both, but the Kahlua was the best!!! My friend had a scoop of coconut and kahlua. She enjoyed hers as well... More
