With so many ice cream parlors in our little tourist town, Sunset is by far the best! It is located among many shops making it easy to stop in for a treat. Friendly staff and many delicious flavors!

I stopped in at Sunset for the first time after living in Gettysburg my whole life. I was not disappointed! The ice cream was delicious and the young girl behind the counter was very helpful. I recommend Sunset for your ice cream treat this summer

With unique and different flavors (Teaberry and Watermelon are 2 of our favorites!), we always have to make a stop at Sunset!

Nice place when the evening was winding down. They have their flavors never seen at other ice cream store and its real good. After dinner while walking down Steinwehr Ave this would be a nice place to stop.

Sunset was winding down its season. We had received vouchers for an ice cream treat as part of a package at the Brickhouse Inn, but I am dairy-allergic. While my husband enjoyed a (gigantic) one-scoop cone, they were so accomodating to me to allow me a brownie with Reese's PB cups and chocolate syrup on top. Yum!

VERY good ice cream. We visited on a weeknight so it wasn't crowded at all. You get a lot for the money.

We both opted for the peanut butter chocolate in a cup. Our servings were both huge and had a lot of peanut butter in it. It's odd that this place was next door to Kilwin's who also serves ice cream. They have a few tables inside plus some tales and benches outside. Service was friendly and prices were reasonable considering... More

No question, wonderful and reasonable and the best in town and maybe anywhere. Great flavors, nice location. Friendly people are behind the counter and the scoops are huge, so be careful ordering two scoops.

They have a great selection of flavors. I had Cherry Vanilla ice cream in a regular cone. One scoop was as big as two scoops at other places I have been.
