“Don't let the parking lot scare you off.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

From the outside, the little strip mall that houses this diner looks a bit rundown, and seems a bit out of place for the town. Don't be fooled by it, as the food is worth the visit to this establishment.

The staff was very friendly and the Reuben I chose for lunch was excellent.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Who needs a 5 star rating. We googled restaurants in Gettysburg and this quaint diner came up. Decided to check it out. Wow. Staff is very friendly and provide excellent service. Nice small town atmosphere. Away from the tourist crowd. I could not believe the prices. Cheap! Food was great and portions were huge. I recommend people to get off the tourist trail and check out this diner. You will be glad you did.

“Good local food on a budget”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

I am a frequent flyer at West Side and am a fan of their chicken wraps and soups which are always changing on the specials. There are few reasonably priced restaurants in Gettysburg so for a good cheap meal it's worth it to venture a little out of the way

“Stirfry heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

We were told to try this place out. So good and so cheap. I would recommend that everyone goes there. Now I am craving a glass of chocolate milk and some stirfry.

“Umm, it was ok...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

My family and I went to the West Side Diner early afternoon. The food that we ordered was just ok. The waitress was super nice and attentive though.
