The name says it all. The buffet was generous in portions and the ice tea served was right on time. I enjoyed the wide variety of things they had to offer. The lines were long, but definitely didn't mind waiting. We would for sure go...More

The service at General Pickett’s Buffet is friendly and fast. The food is good if you’re feeding a crowd and want quantity rather than quality. A lot of salt on some of the preparations and some of the desert cakes lack any real taste. I’m...More

We visited General Pickett's Buffet for the 1st time in November of 2017. We were really impressed with the quality of the food and prices. We will definitely visit again when in Gettysburg.

While attending a conference nearby, my husband and I ate three lunches here. Delicious homecooked food with plenty of choices for gluten free people.(May not be suitable for celiac, but I have no problem with cross contamination.) Highly recommend!

A large group of almost 100 people from various Volkssports clubs from 13 states visited Gettysburg and enjoyed the buffet at General Pickett's Buffet. Nice staff and flavorsome food for a buffet. Simple atmosphere. Expectations meet.

This place offers a huge variety of food to eat including hot items, salad bar, soup, and dessert bar. We prepaid through the group which speeded up our dining. The staff were very accommodating and quickly brought beverages and cleared plates as needed.
