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

Stopped here late one Saturday evening after a long day. Had not had supper yet and the staff here was great! My son and I disagree on burger toppings and wanted to split a meal. The waitress was so kind, when she brought our food she had cut the burger we ordered in half, put one half and the toppings... More

Good icecream - plentiful servings'. Small restaurant. Though they do offer outdoor seating. Open only seasonally. Prices are average. Only parking is on-street, which can be challenging.

One scoop of the coffee ice-cream and one vanilla. Really enjoyed. It might not be homemade but its from a creamery just an hour away in Lancaster. Nice serving, much more than in other places; plenty to enjoy. Its a small place, found it thanks to the recommendation of local folks. Very helpful and friendly staff.

I love this place. The employees are very friendly and the ice cream is great! I asked for a small sundae but to my surprise, it was huge but delicious! My teenage daughter and son helped me eat it. We sat outside and enjoyed our ice cream. It was just a nice little rest stop after a long day of... More

They have Turkey Hill ice cream that you can buy in any grocery store, but they charge you $3 for scoop. So, nothing really special here. We've been to three ice cream stores in Gettysburg, and this is the one I would not return to. It was completely underwhelming.

Good food. Be hungry, they give you plenty. Inside dining minimal but outside sidewalk tables are available. Very friendly staff that was very attentive to us. Would recommend.

If you are in the Gettysburg area, please stop here for ice cream! We got milkshakes that were fantastic! I had read about it on trip adviser and I'm am soooo glad that we stopped. Nice place to just take a break!
