“World's Best Burgers”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

When we arrived in Gettysburg PA to visit Civil War Battlefields, Museums and Cemetery's etc. we arrived early in the day. After checking in to the Comfort Suites on Baltimore St. we asked our check in clerk Micelle to recommend a great place for lunch, and after the long drive we also requested it be somewhere that we (as seniors) could walk to if possible. Micelle was quick to tell us that all the restaurants in the Gettysburg area wonderful but if we like a great burger than there was only one place to go... the Blue and Gray Bar & Grill. Please note that the restaurant on this site gave the address of 28 Lincoln Square and our bill and instructions by Micelle to find the restaurant both stated 2 Baltimore Street (same street the hotel is on). We were told that we would have to walk about 30 minutes at a normal pace... straight down Baltimore until we reach the "roundabout", that the Blue and Gray would be on the right a the beginning of the roundabout. The roundabout is Lincoln Square so the instructions were easy and correct. The restaurant is located where Balitmore meets Lincoln Square (the roundabout) and it was a lovely place... we loved it from the moment we entered. The place and clean, warm and bright and the staff are excellent, friendly and very helpful. They have a great big bar in the middle of the place for the sports minded to enjoy and booths and tables around the perimeter of it. There are numerous pictures around depicting the Civil War battles. Our waitress Cassondra was a wonderful young women, with a friendly smile and warm welcome, she inquired about where we were from and asked if we were enjoying ourselves in Gettyburg then she took our drink orders. After looking at the menu that had many varied items all with civil war themes we decided on each a burger ... mine being from the Blue side and my husbands being from the Gray side, each named after a famous general of that era. When the burgers came they were big and instead of a large toothpick holding it together there was a flag from the civil war, that made us smile. The burgers did not disappoint they were amazing, cook perfectly and very filling and the prices here are very reasonable. If you visit Gettyburg coming to the Blue & Gray should be on the top of the list for a great lunch or supper you will not be disappointed. And all the staff is great but we will remember Cassondra, and we hope Cassondra your Mom had a wonderful birthday and enjoyed you waiting on her for her special day.

“First Visit”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

We live in Gettysburg, and we just had our first meal at the Blue and Gray. We were impressed right away with the friendly staff! They were great, very talkative and interacted with all the customers, especially visitors to Gettysburg who had questions. They are noted for their burgers, so we tried those, and we're glad we did, delicious! Not impressed with side dish of fries though. Wide selection of beers also. Inside has been completely remodeled and is nice. We will return!

We ordered the burgers and fries and were not disappointed. The hostess and wait staff were great!! The location is central to a lot of shops and the David Wills house.

“Looks are deceiving”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

A friend and I ate here expecting bad tourist food from the decor and TV's in multiples but WOW...the burgers were amazing! And bakery buns not the squishy, tasteless ones you usually get. Plus, the beer was $2.25 a pint. I've never paid that little for draft beer. Have the burger with avocado (Winfield Scott?). I'm still thinking about it!
