Description: 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

Plenty if parking at the middle school, interesting history of the building on the walls, "Living Witness" sycamore out front, salty caramel cone yummy. Wish it were open later on Friday--especially College Family Weekend.

The only ice cream parlor in Gettysburg that say's "GETTYSBURG!" It's located in an authentic Civil War house that's indeed haunted, and run by very kind, friendly and customer-oriented folks. They actually had PUMPKIN ice cream, and it was delicious!! We ate at one of the "Witness Tree" tables that had been made from one of the twin sycamores that Lincoln passed under while on his way to the National Cemetery. In earlier visits, the owner had taken us upstairs to see more of the civil war house and shared some of his ghost stories with us. This is one place we ALWAYS visit when we're in Gettysburg!!!

Our family of four visited Mr G's while on our vacation to Gettysburg and loved it. The ice cream (we had the chocolate chip cookie dough and Salted Caramel) was incredible and some of the best we've ever eaten while at an affordable price. The history of the house was intriguing and the staff was cordial and friendly. The gift shop was fun to browse as well. We would definitely recommend Mr G's and will visit again when we return to Gettysburg!

Excellent homemade ice cream and at a decent price! Worth a stop in if you are ever in Gettysburg. The smell of fresh baked waffle cones made it even better.
