Stopped quick for some ice cream on our walk back to our hotel. Great hard ice cream with a bunch of flavors. A nice finish to our day.

very limited selection....ice cream lacked flavor. Mr. G's was the better choice for us. Our girls went to the shop next door and raved about their ice cream. My husband and I were disappointed by Sunset.

I'm a long time Gettysburg resident and have enjoyed this ice cream parlor for years! The bright colors and yummy ice cream always make my day better.

Sunset ice cream is one of my favorites; the quality is always top shelf. The quaint location stands out amongst the little shops on Steinwehr Ave and is a stop you won't want to miss.

It was a very cute ice cream parlor. The service was quick and the chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream was delicious. It was clean and quaint, with just enough seating to surprisingly hold the people who visited.

When I would bring my scout troop to Gettysburg, we would stop here for ice cream after a ghost tour. when I would inform the shop we would be there that night they went out of their way to have extra help to handle the crowd or stay open a bit later tf we were running late.

We loved this great ice cream shop. Kid friendly and great atmosphere! Highly recommend! I love bringing my family to this shop. Gettysburg has so many places and amenities but this place ranks near the top!

Worth a visit for ice cream. Nothing exotic, not a long list of flavors to choose from, simply good ice cream in a cup or cone. The kids love it! After a long day on the battlefield, this is the place for a refreshing treat.

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.
