Wonderful treat after a hot day of hiking

Stopped here in the evening after a battlefield hike. Good ice cream that hit the spot. A must do for us every trip.

I was really excited to visit this place, but was extremely disappointed. The ice cream was mediocre at best, and the inside of the parlor was not very clean. It felt like a more expensive Baskin Robbins 31. I was sad.

Pretty good ice cream here & the prices are ok. My daughter & I each got 2 scoops which were huge...1would've been plenty. We will probably go back again.

Some of the chain places might be bigger, but for my money, when in Gettysburg, there's no place like Sunset for great, locally made ice cream! The store is small, but since it's in an old house, that's to be expected. They do offer limited outdoor seating, but generally, I like to get my ice cream and stroll along Steinwehr... More

A fun place to eat a delicious ice cream outside in the sunshine! One scoop was larger than usual but I did not complain. Sidewalk tables. Fun place to be.

Great selection of real ice cream and home made fudge. Definitely a stop for your sweet tooth. Servers were patient as we made our choices.

Sunset is right in the heart of downtown Gettysburg. Easy to get to from many of the local attractions. The service was great, and ice cream delicious. The scoops were a great size.

We stopped here after eating across the street. Sunset Ice Cream offers a wide variety of flavors. I chose a Banana milkshake and it was fabulous! The prices are very reasonable and you get a lot of your money. There are tables inside and out to eat at. Highly recommend this place!
