My family and I really enjoyed our meal here. Overall a good selection for a buffet, and the food was quite good. I would definitely return.

Stopped here because it looked busy and we like buffets. Service was good and friendly but the food was mediocre at best. Would have been a good price if the food had been better.

Maybe I am being harsh, but this place is really about "all you CAN eat" which places quantity over everything else......some people undoubtedly like this.

Popular place especially with the tour groups so it can get a little crowded. Selections include baked ham & roast beef, fried chicken, and sliced (real) turkey in gravy, plus several side items (vegetables & such), a nice salad bar, and a variety of home-made desserts. There is a gift shop and the battle theater wax museum attached (the restaurant... More

Very popular, especially with tour busses, homestyle buffet. Carving stations, good starchy sides, nice dessert selection. The battle theater wax museum is on the opposite side of the building, and it features a good gift shop. Make no mistake, this is a touristy place, but it's priced decently, has good variety, especially for families and the staff is friendly and... More

Went here for lunch during our Gettysburg vacation and didn't expect a lot since most buffets are pretty sad quality food but the kids really wanted to go here. We were surprised with the amazing customer service. The waitress was very friendly and even the chef came out to chat. Food was average frozen or canned food with a few... More

General Picketts Buffet had pretty good homestyle food at a decent price. The buffet didn't stay stocked on a couple of the items that I was hoping to try during the time we were there but all in all it wasn't too bad. There's also a dessert bar that had quite a few choices. The staff was very friendly. There's... More

I have never eaten at a buffet that I love so much! The staff was incredibly friendly, and the food is totally amazing. Its all good home cooking and great affordable prices. We ate there both nights of our stay and it was just so good!

The food here was great, it was like eating a good home cooked meal while out on the road. I'm a big fan of bread with a meal and their homemade bread was just fantastic. They service was very good too, our server had to be the nicest, friendliest one we had on our vacation.
