many choices on this buffet and the prices are reasonable. Not many people when we got there but quickly filled up. Local specialties on the buffet and a nice dessert bar as well. no soft serve ice cream though (not a deal breaker). Great service, clean and neat

This is a buffet in the Gettysburg area, but nothing stands out. Although there are many choices, nothing stands out as being so great. The ham in the carving station was tasty. Many desserts are available for those who enjoy sweets. The waiter was cordial, but not overly friendly. This is not a place that I plan to visit again... More

Add the fact that the servers are extremely friendly and helpful if you have any directional questions and this makes this stop a winner! I... More

Although this buffet style restaurant is not generally outstanding, it is a very good value in a tourist area. The items on the buffet are not unique or noteworthy, but most a good. There is also a good salad bar. The most significant feature, which stands out above the rest is the desert area which has several very good items.

The staff was friendly and helpful The price is very reasonable. The buffet is small. The ribs, turkey, potatoes and many of the vegetables were very good. The bread was good too, along with the cakes and brownies and lemon meringue pie. The other pies were just okay. The slice of prime rib I chose could not be cut with... More

We spent $58 to feed 3 adults and a child. The buffet had VERY limited selection, the food was obviously prepackaged, and the waitress could have cared less if we were there. This was DEFINITELY not worth the money. Avoid at all costs!

Location is great, right at the turn off for the National Park, and the price was reasonable, and the choices extensive, but the food quality is not so great. We did not notice the ground level restrooms, so struggled up a long, steep stairway to use the ones off the gift shop. Ordinary souvenirs. The free shuttle dropped us off... More

We ate dinner here the first night and liked it so well we returned the second evening, even though we wanted to try out another restaurant we had read about on here. The service was great, which is hard to find. The salad bar has anything you could want to build an excellent salad, the soups were wonderful, the hot... More
