Reviewed April 23, 2013

Seriously the best ice cream I have ever had. Peanut butter and vanilla, yum. So fresh it could have been made that day. Loved the ice cream the decor and the very pleasant staff. Will definitely go back!

“Excellent ice cream and family fun”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

This place was recommended and did not disappoint. We had the Girl Scout mint chocolate chip and the chocolate peanut butter. They were both so good with huge chunks of peanut butter and cookie. My kids loved playing the ring toss out front. Couldn't get them to leave. Will have to build one for our house. Only downside was needed a key to visit outside bathrooms. Very friendly staff and a great value.

“Just discovered this great place”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We've been to Gettysburg many times over the years, but this last visit we discovered Mr. G's. And boy are we glad we did. They have the best malts and milkshakes. It was warm the week we were there and we went every afternoon. Banana malt was my favorite.

“Great old fashion ice cream and more!”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We stopped at this place after visiting the Shriver House Museum for some ice cream. We asked a question about the history of the building and the owner gave us a tour as good as any of the "real" tour guides. He has a real interest in the history of the house and the town. The tree out front was passed by Lincoln on his way to give the Gettysburg address and there are numerous bullet holes in the building from the battle of Gettysburg and pictures of the "house" at the time of the battle. Also, the ice cream is terrific. We were in Gettysburg for 5 days and had ice cream here 4 times!

“Awesome”
Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

I bought into the hype and needless to say I was not disappointed. I ordered the homemade butter pecan and it was so rich,creamy and smooth. Most evenings the line was out the door. Make this a stop when you are in Gettysburg.
