“Nice relief for a warm day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

What a historical place! Perfect place to take a rest and consume tasty ice-cream! Prices were fair and the ice-cream was fresh and unique flavors were offered. Staff was friendly and hard-working.

“Fantastic place for ice cream!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

The first thing you will notice is the quaint building and grounds. It's all very welcoming and relaxing. There are several places to sit outside and enjoy your ice cream, and some fun ring games to play as well. They have tons of ice cream options-- hard scooped and soft serve-- and nearly endless options for eating it-- cone, cup, sugar cone, sugar bowl, sundae, blizzard, etc. The ice cream was yummy, and the staff were friendly, thorough, and speedy. It was quite busy, even at 9:15pm, but they kept the line moving. There is also a gift shop in the back-- more of a store that sells Life is Good items and higher end gifts and items. A bonus is that there is a public ladies room available. You just have to ask for a key, and the restroom is located on the outside of the building, towards the gift shop, across from the well. Only draw back is that it's a little pricey, but it's the same as other ice cream places.

“Great Ice Cream - even for a non ice cream lover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Since the reviews were so good for Mr. G's and because it was about 100 degrees outside, we decided to stop for a treat. And a treat it was! I am not a typical ice cream fan and decided to try it since the reviews are so high on Trip Advisor and Yelp. I got the chocolate chip and my family members got the vanilla and butter pecan. Can you say DELICIOUS?? Yes it was! The location is not too bad - we found parking pretty easily on the street. Like others have said, if you go to Gettysburg, treat yourself to some good ice cream.

“Incredible...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Love the place! Great ice cream! They have a card where you get a free scoop of ice cream after purchasing 12 scoops. Love the ambiance of the building and the history of it. The ring game outside is fun! It is our preferred spot to watch the Memorial Day parade and a must visit when in town. We also love the Gift Shop and Amber, the nice girl who works there, which is located behind the Ice Cream store. Mr. G and his wife Stephanie are very nice people. Highly recommend.
