“Most ice cream ever!!”

Cannonball Malt Shop
Ranked #11 of 15 Dessert in Gettysburg
Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 June 2014

This was a busy place but the staff was working hard and remained friendly despite the crowd and the heat. We ordered up a single vanilla and salted carmel in a waffle cone and paid less than 8 bucks total. We had more ice cream than we could eat. It was delicious. And these were the singles!

This is a kind of 50s style soda shop on the main drag kind of place. We liked it when, because of the heat, one of the flavours was too melted to put into a cone, they offered to put it into a dish with the cone on top. Ice cream entrepreneurism!

Nice little place. Can't vouch for the regular food but the ice cream is as iconic as the Gettysburg battlefields.

Very good ice cream and very good nachos. They have a great seating area so it's a good place to take a break on a hot summer day. Or any day really!

My husband and I stayed at the Gettysburg hotel and could walk across the street to this shop. The ice cream was great and the staff very friendly.

This was our first trip to the malt shop but not the last. It is on our annual list of places to eat! We stopped in one day and ordered hot fudge sundaes. They have a choice of regular sundae($5.50), or "designer" sundaes ($6.50). I thought about ordering the designer, because I was having a hot fudge attack, but I just ordered a regular. The sundae was SO LOADED with hot fudge it was FAN-TASTIC. It is a very large sundae for the money. The ice-cream is Turkey Hill brand. A small shop, the walls are covered with retro, malt shop pix and signs, very cute. They have a very large menu of ice-cream and sandwiches and fried food. VERY GOOD
