The lunch buffet was some of the best food we have ever had. My wife and I were in agreement. Many foods to choose from on the buffet. Many selections for dessert. Service was awesome. Chicken was superb. Very reasonable prices.

Just ate there a couple of days ago... the food isn't any good completely bland. The selection is very small all the meats are overcooked the service wasn't very good either. Seemed as if my wife and I were interrupting him and the cashiers conversation when walking in to be seated. They have a nice location in Gettysburg and a... More

After a long, educational, solemn day learning about the Battle of Gettyburg we wanted a quick but filling dinner. General Pickett's fit the bill. Food was all fresh, homemade and hot. Many choices friendly server. Price was right.

Went here with my family because it is a tradition for my boys to have dinner here when they come with their Boy Scout Troop. It my first time (and probably my last). It cost us over $120 (for a family of 8) for "cafeteria" type food. Drinks were an additional cost to the buffet, so just get waters to... More

We are not really into buffets like this but if you want to feed teens and stay with a budget, this is a place to go. Quantity galore. Quality is average.

Very inexpensive buffet, but hardly anything tastes good. You want to fill up your stomach quickly and continue with your battlefield tour? Then you are at a right place.

Other than the price. Maybe. Horrific food that sits around for a while. Lots of mystery meat type dishes. Wilted lettuce at the salad bar and flies buzzing around the desert table, along with 1970s decor and furniture, complete the ambiance. But it is cheap. And it is all you can eat (if you can stomach it.) Only redeeming factor:... More

The food was average and the service average plus. However the dessert table won me over! I would go back just for it.

Some people may say this Resturant is a little dated but boy do they make up for it with amazing service and great food. There where several employees who really interacted with people. You felt welcomed here. Had we had more time in Gettysburg I would have went again. Everything was amazing, really give it a try. The cost was... More

We sent out teens here for dinner when we had our fancy couples meal. The kids LOVED it. Great variety for the picky eater and great volume for the teen boy! They spoke especially highly of the pecan pie!
