Good food.

The food was very good. All the items on the buffet were properly cooked and presented, and they tasted good. The dessert bar was fabulous. The only downside is that lunch didn't have a "lunch" price tag. It was a bit expensive for a light luncheon.

The service here was very good. We were seated immediately, our drinks were never empty before a replacement arrived, and our empty plates were cleared promptly. The food was typical buffet fare. The dessert bar was excellent. The salad bar was OK. Several toppings, but not a whole lot. The main bar left a bit to be desired. The food... More

Just about your typical buffet food, but a really good salad selection and the homemade desserts are good. Our waitet was very knowledgeable about the area and Civil War History. Enjoyed chatting with him. This was our 3rd trip to Gettysburg, and our 3rd trip to General Picketts. So we will be back next time we are in town.

Solid, basic, standard food. $15 per adult included salad bar, soup, main course, and dessert table, drinks cost additional $. A bus load of touring seniors were enjoying themselves in the front room, otherwise, the restaurant wasn't too crowded.

The buffet had a nice variety of hot and cold foods. They even had all of the fixings to make a taco salad on the salad bar, which you don't often see. My husband loved the wings and ribs here. Desserts were very good; we sampled most of them at our table.

We have eaten here many times over the years. It's a little expensive for what you get, but it is after all a tourist town. The salad bar is decent. They have unique things you don't normally see on a buffett. It's worth trying at least once. The waitress we had that day was grumpy and acted like she didn't... More

When I was planning our trip to Gettysburg this was one restaurant I wanted to try. The service was good but the buffet didn't have a lot to choose from. The price was a little to high for what you got.
