We've been here a few times. It's always crowded with tour bus people and large groups. The food isn't that great for the price, and the selection isn't that large. It's clean and the staff is nice though.

Neat, clean, palatable. Look if you are a large eater, with a family or bus group or any larger group this is a worthwhile stop. However, if your not it may not be the place for you.

Stopped by for an evening dinner. Maybe it was due to it being a Saturday evening but the dining room was very close. The food was very good but it would take a while to get through the line whenever I or my friend would go up to the buffet. However the staff is very nice and overall the experience... More

We always visit Gettysburg over the Thanksgiving holiday and have our dinner at General Pickett's Buffet. The restaurant is very busy on this day, so I would recommend making a reservation in advance. Our reservation was at 6:00 and we were seated immediately. The food choices were excellent and everything was well stocked. In addition to turkey, there was ham,... More

My dad made a reservation for 24 people for 3pm on Thanksgiving day. We (Dad and Mom, me and my family) arrived at 2:30. Not only was our table ready, we weren't there five hot minutes before we had service. It was incredible, home made food, hot, fresh and constantly refreshed buffet. It was the best buffet I've experienced in... More

Turkey great, roast beef great, seafood newburg great. Salad bar great. Yams meh, stuffing meh. Potatoes awful, green beans awful. Deserts were very good and plentiful. Server was great, all though rushed. Buffet so...Not a huge... More

I've been here many, many times - and I keep going back. This time Mom came with me - we went back three times in a five- dark stay. The food is good, with enough selection that she could eat well even with her food restrictions. The staff is great, too - very friendly and welcoming. There's a reason I... More

Food was wonderful. They clearly cater to tourist and townies alike. It is a buffet style set up. If the food got low, it was replaced immediately. The wait staff were friendly, proficient and knowledgeable. The price is something you can swollow as well. My bill was $17.89. Will definitely go back.

If one wants to eat without possible tour group interruptions, you may not want to dine here or consider eating later in the afternoon. The food selection consists of dessert, salad/soup and a meat bar. The price for my buffet was $10.95 and beverages are $1.75. The plates are larger than Golden Corrals. I observed the wait staff explained all... More

For the price, I was disappointed. The buffet was small in choices. The waiter acted like we were putting him out.
