If you are in Gettysburg, this is a must-stop! Delicious malts, shakes and sundaes with a great deal of history on the side!

Our visit to Cannonball Malt Shop was great! The staff were super friendly, food was great & of course the ice cream is the best! It is Turkey Hill ice cream - but it is great!

As we were walking though Gettysburg, we anxiously awaited the opening of this Malt shop for lunch. It was worth the wait! Loved the malts, phosphates and hand dipped ice cream as well as the burgers and fries! Would come here again and again and again!

We live in Gettysburg and visit the Cannonball Malt Shop more often than any other eatery in town. As ex-NYC residents living in PA it took us 25 years to find a malt that stood up to New York's. After many malts and ice cream treats we decided to try a meal. The portions are huge and served to your... More

After touring Gettysburg for several hours, we wanted some ice cream, and we heard about this place from our guided bus tour the day before. The food is excellent, the service is great, and I would come again.

We stopped on the afternoon of November first, just looking for a good snack. I got the best malt of my life, and my boyfriend got an apple cider float. Both were fantastic! The staff though, was awesome. They directed us to their favorite historical locations so that we could enjoy Gettysburg as locals do. Following their suggestions, we had... More

We ordered a malt and a single scoop of ice cream. When my wife questioned the size of the scoop she was told, "It's a single scoop with attitude." I think there was more ice cream in her scoop than my malt. Quite a few places seem to have forgotten that the customer is what keeps them in business; not... More
