My wife and I were visiting Gettysburg and stopped by the downtown square to look around and eat. We noticed (on Tripadvisor) that this restaurant had fairly good reviews so we tried it out. The inside was pretty musty (and my wife is allergic to...mold and mildew) so we chose to sit outside on the square. A great choice. Our server was delightful and the General John Buford (Blackened) burger was excellent. A good choice for visitors and fun menu.More

This place was simply terrible. The smell, the terrible service, and horrible food are my best description. Nothing about this place was even below average. We grade it a 1/10 terrible in every way.

In my opinion, Blue and Gray was the most horrible dining experience that I have had. When we first entered the smell was horrible and this was after walking through a jet engine type fan by the front entrance. That should have enough to warn...us to leave. Sadly, we missed the warning sign and sat down at a table. Service was to be honest absolutely awful. After waiting at our table for around 45 minutes our waitress brought out drinks. Seriously, she took 45 minutes for drinks with zero explanation other then she is sooo busy. Really??? Our table ordered burgers. They were beyond horrible. The burgers were fatty and literally dripping in grease. It was like a commercial for how to cure constipation. Worst of all the taste of the burgers made me truly wish we had gone to either McDonalds, Burger King or Wendy’s. The burgers were below 1 star quality. The french fries were flavorless and just drenched in salt. It was as if someone turned the salt shaker upside down and poured for 10 minutes. Call me crazy but I prefer some potato with my salt. When we informed the manager of the issues he laughed and said that everybody loves everything about Blue and Gray and if we don’t like don’t come back? Yes, the total opposite of how any other restaurant would treat anybody. Don’t worry we will never ever return. Just 1 persons opinion, as the song says Run don’t walk Away from the Blue and Gray. I would tell anyone that this restaurant has awful food, horrifically awful service and nothing to offer.More

Delicious food and an entertaining environment. Located in the historic downtown of Gettysburg it’s a must stop when you’re so hungry from all your history intake.

I came here during my trip to Gettysburg for drinks and an appetizer. The drinks were a little weaker than I would have liked. I got a pound of shrimp that a shared with my friend. It was very good.

Hair in my wedge salad. Each time I visit Gettysburg, I immediately crave B & G’s wings and a wedge salad. This time, the whole experience was depressing. Bar smelled really bad, too. Should have been the tip off but it’s always been a fun...dive to get great bar food and grab a beer. No need to elaborate but there was a long, black hair nestled in the center of my salad. Sayonara Blue and Gray. It was great while it lasted.More

We have been to Gettysburg many times and have always noticed lines out the door at this popular restaurant. This year we got in for lunch with no wait. We now understand the attraction! the Food is great served in diner style. Our large group...was easily handled and all were VERY satisfied. Many in my family LOVE the various types of burgers named after Civil War heroes, blue and gray. We will be back! AAAAAAAAAAAAA+++++++++++More

This is one of our Gettysburg favs. Terrific menu. Good portions, good service, We were here on a busy Saturday afternoon. Wait staff was very busy, but still, service was timely and food came out quickly, hot, and as ordered. It is a pub and...has a large bar offering, but it also has a very good menu. Not just "bar food" but you have a wide variety from which to choose.More

I checked their menu online and it did not list a children's menu. You would have to contact them. However, there were children there eating.
