“Ice Cream was great ... service was ... less than”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We were looking for late night snack and the reviews lead us here from our Gettysburg hotel. I was expecting a place to dine inside ... so kinda threw me that you order at a window and take it to go. It was chilly outside so eating outside was not ideal.
The ice cream was good and the price was fine ... but the service was kinda laughable. And we did have a fun time laughing about it. My hubby ordered choc chip ice cream .. the guy looked utterly confused and had him repeat the order ... He asked what that was??? My hubby explained .. it vanilla ice cream with choc chips. He said wellllll we have choc chip cookie dough ice ceam that has choc chips but he had never heard of Choc chip ice cream. Ever patient my husband pointed out it was on their menu board. The young guy said well we must have it and gave us our ice cream. He totally forgot about our paying and we had to remind him .. we hadn't paid. :) he was young and maybe first week there.

“The Best in Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Conveniently located on York Road, this parlor offers the best tasting home made ice cream. Its unique variety of flavors and freshness are unbeatable. I tried a large cone with a double scoop of raspberry cake dough and thoroughly enjoyed the treat.

“Lots of options-great prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

After finding Mr. G's had nothing for the lactose intolerant, we tried Mr. G's. Wow--he enjoyed his sorbet (they also had Italian ices). So the next day, we returned for the ice cream lovers to enjoy a treat. My hot fudge sundae with coffee ice cream was delicious. When in Gettysburg, we'll go to Brusters.

Need I say more? Our Bruster's closed back home and we were pleasantly surprised to find one in Gettysburg.
