Was hoping for a much better meal than we got. Standard buffet food that could have been so much better. Very good service and it's a fun place to look at the historic photos.

We stopped at Pickett's for dinner when we arrived in Gettysburg. There was plenty of food and desserts, lots of room to sit and eat. The food was average but the desserts are divine!
