Great place for a meal and ice cream

Nice place to grab a bit to eat and have a milkshake or ice cream. Many flavors of ice cream and they also have other great items on menu. Not to miss while you are in town.

There's a high minimum card purchase level at $10. If you don't make that, they add a dollar to your total. This is on top of overpriced hot food that was average at best and quickly makes it $15 a person if you're not careful. I could have gone to Burger King and purchased two hot meals with chocolate shakes... More

What a delicious treat anytime! Very generous with the portions. Wide selection of ice cream and malts. Reasonably priced. All Ice Cream comes from Turkey Hill!

We walked here for lunch from a soccer tournament at Gettysburg College. We were pleasantly surprised to see that they not only had a wide selection of ice cream, but also burgers, etc. The burgers were large, and the milkshakes delicious. Despite the busyness, we were able to get seats inside. Unlike fancier places, these proprietors actually had the temperature... More

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

Folks were very nice and the ice cream was great. If we walk past them again...I am going in! The high top chairs were nice and the service was excellent!

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.
