The staff was friendly and helpful The price is very reasonable. The buffet is small. The ribs, turkey, potatoes and many of the vegetables were very good. The bread was good too, along with the cakes and brownies and lemon meringue pie. The other pies were just okay. The slice of prime rib I chose could not be cut with a knife. Needless to say I did not eat it. The chicken nuggets were hard and not very tasty.

We spent $58 to feed 3 adults and a child. The buffet had VERY limited selection, the food was obviously prepackaged, and the waitress could have cared less if we were there. This was DEFINITELY not worth the money. Avoid at all costs!

Location is great, right at the turn off for the National Park, and the price was reasonable, and the choices extensive, but the food quality is not so great.

We did not notice the ground level restrooms, so struggled up a long, steep stairway to use the ones off the gift shop. Ordinary souvenirs.

The free shuttle dropped us off and picked us up right across the street. Thank you Gettysburg College.

Staff was friendly, just not very active in keeping drinks refilled.

We ate dinner here the first night and liked it so well we returned the second evening, even though we wanted to try out another restaurant we had read about on here. The service was great, which is hard to find. The salad bar has anything you could want to build an excellent salad, the soups were wonderful, the hot items simply delicious, and the deserts were AMAZING!!!

I picked a buffet because I was sure that my granddaughters would be able to find something that they liked. This place had an abundance! All of the buffet tables looked fresh and appealing. I sampled the soup which was very tasty. The salad fixings also were very fresh. They had a number of hot dishes and hand carved roast beef and ham. The beef was especially tender. A great selection of pies and cakes also. Staff was very attentive. Definitely would go back.
