We live outside of Gettysburg and we will only get ice cream from Sunset. The staff is super friendly and Mr. Marc lets my boys try all the new flavors. Sunset is the best!! No other ice cream can compare.

We stopped here at the end of an evening in Gettysburg and were very pleased with the selection available! We had great service and the cones are reasonably priced and generous.

Maybe my expectations were too high based on other reviews, but this seemed like just another ice cream shop. We got a cone and a shake. I wouldn't make a special trip just to try their ice cream but if you're walking by and in the mood then go for it.

My son and I stop in here during a recent visit to Gettysburg, and we both got a cone. The total bill came out to nearly $10! The service was good, the girl behind the counter was very friendly, and the ice cream was decent. But $10?!?! Seriously!?

After all the great reviews we gave it a try i must say they have the best caramel salt ice cream. It was worth the trip. A must go.

We stopped in to get refreshed as it was a hot day on our visit to Gettysburg. It's a nice little shop with a reasonable selection of ice cream. There were a few tables and chairs inside or a couple of benches outside to relax. My wife had the salted caramel and I had the peanut butter. You can upgrade... More

We have kind of went on a tour de ice cream in Gettysburg. So far we have tried three different places, and we went back to Sunset twice. Kilwin's ice cream was better, but double the price. The Cannonball Malt shop was meh. For the price, $4 for a giant double scoop, we thought that this place was pretty darned... More

We went to Sunset Ice Cream parlor about seven years ago , and have been talking about it ever since. Were so glad to find it still there. Just as delicious as we remembered. Delicious ice cream, really cute place, nostalgic feel.
