Our Favorite Spot in Gettysburg

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... read 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.

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
