Good Food, and great atmosphere

It was like stepping back into civil war days with pictures of Gettysburg the movie as you walk in, the food was good but not the best.

If you like average food in a dull atmosphere, then you will love this place. Very bland and unpleasant food.

The title doesn't sound like much, but considering there were probably more than 200 people there, when we ate, says a lot. Considering the crowd, our waitress spent quite a bit of time explaining the buffet layout and attending to our individual needs. There were 11, in our group alone. The food was good and there were a wide variety... More

We were in before a bus with school kids on it, and the food wasn't like the last time we were there. It was good, yes, but certain items you could tell was sitting for too long and tasted pretty awful. I hope this improves- my family and I really enjoy coming to this buffet....

We stopped here for our 8th Grade Class trip and was pleasantly surprised with the great home cooked food, friendly service and the prices in the souvenir shop were very good considering what we had seen throughout our other stops along the trip.

We ate here with our group of 34 middle school students and parents. The owners were so accommodation and had special plates made up for students with allergies. The food selection was wonderful with salads, fruit, four or more meats, fish, and many homemade side dishes to choose from as well as yummy desserts. I heard several students state that... More

We've been here before and liked it a lot, so when our entire family came with us to Gettysburg, we headed to this Buffet. There were ten of us, we were seated immediately despite it being a really busy night, and EVERYONE agreed the the food was excellent. Yes it's a buffet but the food was fresh and the variety...
