Ok

This buffet was ok but small and pricey. The buffet is about half the size of chain buffets. Wait staff was nice and the restaurant was clean.

My son and I always made this our first stop for dinner when he was little. He is now 18 and I guess that our pallets have matured a bit. Stick with the basics and the real food...not the "turkey" I had the worst stomach ache for about 1 hour after eating there.

The food was barely edible. The salad bar was wilted and old. There was no ham or turkey breast for slicing, just fried chicken and cafeteria turkey in gravy. Maybe I just have higher standards? Maybe this is what southern buffet food is like? We had just ended our battlefield tour very hungry. We noticed this was across the street... More

Have been going to this place for years. Food is good and staff are wonderful. Priced very fair and has a home like feel. Every time I make the trip to Gettysburg I stop in. I feel like part of the family there and food is very home cooking comfortable.

I came here with my family for dinner. The atmosphere isn't anything special, kind of dated and old looking. The Food was ok, expected more for my moneys worth. The service was alright as well, our waiter "Robin" was very informational with history facts. We liked him a lot. I though would not come back here again. Not pleased.

We stopped for a late lunch after touring the battlefield. There was plenty of seating and service was good. It was very average worth the $10.99 but not excellent by any means. I would say the pecan pie I had was very good but the salad bar and soup were crusted over from sitting to long. The hot foods had... More

We recently took our grandchildren here for dinner. Food was just awful. Nothing was hot, all was dried out and after having mashed potatoes and gravy for dinner we went next door to Friendly's. Save your money

We were here several years ago and the food was all homemade and delicios, even though the great service is there, o er half the food was frozen boxed food and it tasted like it too..yuk, Dont care for canned ham either, green beans rubbery. Guess ill go to the competition, unless they bring back the real food.
