“Great Place”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

It is an unusual setting for a restaurant. When you walk in, the tables are in the middle of the room, and you seat yourself. The atmosphere is like a tourist stop, ice cream shop and a coffee cafe. There are souveniers hanging everywhere, soda pop in the coolers, an ice cream freezer all wrapped up in the same room. The food was good and I would recommend getting an order of French Fries - come with a big appetite for those! Huge portions! If you are looking for a dining experience outside of the chain restaurants, this is one place to go.

“Very nice”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Waitress was friendly and helpful. Fries and Beef sandwich delicious. One of the best non-franchise places around Gettysburg.

“So wacky so just have to check it out”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

I'm not sure how to describe the place except to say that when you walk in you take a step back in time.You feel like you're visiting an old, rustic diner that's a cross between a 50's diner and a wild west bar. The place is covered...and I mean covered...in old school posters, pictures and the like; giving you much to look at while you wait to grab a table or seat at the counter. Definitely worth stopping in...if not to eat then to choose something sweet from the interesting array of old school (and current) candies.

“Great Little Place”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

The place is a bit small and they sell all sorts of things besides food. The atmosphere is a lot of fun with pictures and memorabilia taking up every bit of space on the walls. The food was good (especially the cheese fries!) and they have a huge selection of beverages. The portions are very generous as well.
