I wasn't to impressed. It a like s school cafeteria. But if you need to feed a lot of hungry people, quick and cheap, this is for you. The tour busses outside should have warned us.

My family and I ate here on July 4 2014 after a long day sight seeing and it was great. The selection was really good and we were very pleased.

Average selection of food offered, prices kind of high for the quality, taste and selection. Dessert offerings were fantastic. Our server was very busy - but made up for things at the end. He was very personable - spent time talking about Gettysburg with us.

A friend recommended this restaurant and I was not disappointed. Go here if you are looking for simple home made comfort food. They have a nice selection of entrees,salads and of course desserts.Very reasonably priced.

On our most recent stop to Gettysburg this was our first stop. From the time we walked in the staff was friendly and courteous.

The price was reasonable and the selection was small, but everyone found something they liked. The food was a better quality than some other buffets. Found the service good and the restaurant was clean. Dining seemed to be limited, so I would recommend for a meal or two. I thought the hours were too short - I think they closed... More

Buffets don’t suit everyone but if you want a good value meal with a wide variety of food which is cooked well then this is a good place to try. We were recommended this place some years ago and have been back since and never been disappointed. Have a look in at the range of dishes on offer and you’ll... More

The food was good, for a buffet. The selection wasn't huge on the entrees but this is not a national chain. The salad bar was very good, plenty of choices there. The dessert area was great with a good selection of cakes, pies, and bars.

This is comfort food cooked as though it came from a family reunion. It's good and plentiful. Pass on the meatloaf, go for the chicken and sides. People are very friendly. Desserts above average for this kind of venue.
