My wife and I stopped here for lunch and had another great meal. I ordered the lunch special of Prime Rib and my wife ordered the Haddock. A couple salads, a piece of Black Raspberry pie and a coffee, and we were full. Great place!Thank you so much for joining us. It is wonderful to hear you enjoyed your experience! Nancy's homemade Black Raspberry pie is a favorite. We hope to see you again soon.

It is good, homemade food but the hours of operation stink. Only open Saturday and Sunday during the winter 11 - 5, in the summer, they are also open Friday 11-5. Should be open until 7 for people who work or who do not want to eat dinner so early.

We stopped by here on a Saturday for a late lunch after spending a few hours at Liberty Mountain across the PA border. They didn't have much on tap and the prices were high for what you got. The salad bar was tiny and anything that was "pickled" had an interesting (not in a good way) flavor. The fries were quite good and my daughter liked the dessert. Not much to speak of and we won't be going back. 80%+ of the patrons were 60 years old or older. Our waitress (Ashton, I believe) was great. The parking lot was interesting - we parked to the left of the building in angled parking spaces, but it turned out we couldn't get out in the direction one would suppose as there was no exit. We had to awkwardly reverse a way out.

I wrote a review of Frontier three years ago to the month and I wanted to to a follow-up.
Things have improved a little. Not the food, that can't be improved upon, it's fantastic! But the service has improved since that last review. Actually it improved last year, but I neglected to do a follow-up. They actually started using that second window I talked about and did just as I mentioned and started taking orders at one window and have other people serve the food at the other window. This has significantly sped up the process. But, the wait in line is still significant because their business has also increased, so the lines are still long and you still stand in the hot sun waiting. It's funny, the area around the place has a lot of trees for shade, except where you have to stand in line. The new frustration can be finding a seat since business has increased so much they often run out of available tables.
Also, in my original review the price for the complete meal was $12, well it's now $15. The complete meal gives you the best of everything and is a lot of food, so unless you're really hungry, or want different meats, you can split a meal.
All-in-all, it's a great place and I've never found it's equal in both food and atmosphere, but I'm not a patient person for long lines and have always faulted the owner of a business where this is a constant problem for not reevaluating his processes to reduce or eliminate lines.

Mr. G's Ice Cream is located in the historic John Winebrenner house in Gettysburg Pennsylvania. Battle scarred by bullets on the south side of the building and reportedly haunted by spirits of the past, Mr. G's offers delicious homemade and soft serve ice cream. Stop in and try one of our homemade waffle cones and enjoy the ambience of this historic Gettysburg building
Very good ice cream - chocolate covered cherries - and the owner is a font of knowledge about the area.

We totally enjoyed our night out at Hickory Bridge Farm. Food was great. Really enjoyed the crab imperial even though I don't usually eat crab. Chicken and ribs were also good as were the sides. Loved the corn fritters! You can't get much friendlier service than we had. Everyone seemed very nice. Was nice to visit the country store before out dinner since we arrived early. Some fun items there.

We were travelling through the area and sought out a restaurant that we thought might represent local fare of a sort not available back home and that had earned decent reviews. Our meals, fish dishes and beef dishes, were all really great. We tried the crab dip and we were hugely pleased, really delicious, definitely not something we'd find back home. We were really glad we'd made the visit.

Great views, great beers, creative pub food...Eagle & the Owl in the new Highland Lodge is sure to become a favorite for locals and guests alike!
I really enjoyed the Rueben and the sweet potato fries. My wife enjoyed the burger and the sweet potato fries. The waitress was not very good. She didn’t tell us there were specials and we didn’t get drink refills until we were ready to leave (we were drinking water).

Welcoming staff but sadly the food was only "satisfactory". We were part of a group of 25. Service was efficient but some of us found the food rather dry

The Building That Hunt's Battlefield Fries And Cafe' Is In, Is An Old House That Familys Once Lived In. The House At 61 Steinwehr Ave Was Not Here Yet During The Civil War Battle Of Gettysburg, But Was Build About 1900, Yes It Is Small Inside, But We Make Great Use Of The Space. We are CLOSED FOR THE SEASON FROM THANKSGIVING, DECEMBER, JANUARY AND FEBRUARY, REOPENING IN March.
The burgers and fries are very tasty. The burger comes from a local farm and is fresh. The burger and buns are grilled and served with your choice of toppings. Fries are fresh cut fries. Portion sizes are fairly large. Food prices are rather expensive compared to other places selling similar items.
The cafe is small and located in an old house. 4 tables.
No regrets; the food was great.
