On our family's recent visit to Gettysburg, we were looking for a great neighborhood diner. We found it in the West Side Diner. The menu and prices were very reasonable. Our meals were great. The service we received was prompt and friendly. We will go back when we return to Gettysburg.

We were on our way into town and happened upon this place. Glad we did. It was a pretty decent breakfast.We had eaten somewhere else the day before and had eggs that were totally under cooked from what we had ordered so it was nice to be able to finish our whole meal.

Convenient breakfast spot. Good food, friendly staff, and the price is right. And a rarity in Gettysburg - free parking!

We are regular customers who were treated very rudely on Tuesday morning 9/13/16 by the waitress, Becca. My mother, sister and I came in for breakfast and had asked if we could please have a coffee refill, Becca said to my sister sarcastically, "whenever I get around to it". We were shocked by Becca's response to us. About 10 mins.... More

This was, by far, the best breakfast I have ever had. You could just taste the "fresh". The service was wonderful and by the looks of it, the locals love this place also. We will take a trip to Gettysburg just so I can try something different on the menu. Delish sausage.

We will be coming here more often! It is very reasonable with the prices. The food is fine, the serving size is adequate, the coffee hot and good, and the servers are on the ball and pleasant.

We went there for brunch. I had the chicken Caesar salad and the other three in our party had breakfast. Everything tasted good, the service was wonderful and the prices were great! Don't judge it by the exterior as it looks like a little hole in the wall in a small strip mall. I would definitely recommend it.

I've been going to this restaurant since they opened; I always loved it. I moved away from Gettysburg a few years ago, and I came back to visit at the end of July, and I wanted to see if the West Side was still as good as I recalled - and it was! My wife and I had a good... More
