Great food but pricey

The bad: Four buffet lunches with tax and tip ( no drinks included ) was $95. The ambiance/decor is on the cold side for the prices charged. Cafeteria or industrial style comes to mind Certainly not what I would call a cosy spot. The good: Once you get past the price and decor everything else... read more

Went for the buffet lunch this past Sunday and we were the only people there for about 30 min. The restaurant was empty most of the time we were there. The setting was excellent, right next to the lake and one could watch the swans and Canada geese. The food was OK, nothing wonderful, although the bread pudding and apple... More

What can I say about this place. It is just amazing!!! They have everything and more. Great selection of gluten/wheat free products, fresh baked goods...( the no-bake cheesecake and banana cream pie are to die for!!!!!) They also have cute little gifts and knickknacks. Everytime I go there I find something new and interesting. The senery is also really great... More

Here I go again. ...looking for a place to eat, being Mothers Day 2014. I was hungry so off we went. Bingo.... Mothers day brunch at Knapp's! Having no ties with ownership or other interests with Knapp's my reviews are unbiased! We entered and were greeted by the manager I assume. Friendly and happy to see another customer entering greetings... More

Easter Brunch was quite delightful. Buffet was plentiful and tasty, the turkey was moist and the homemade cranberry sauce was scrumptious. I was able to buy a jar of it in the store to take home with us. Lots of food choices and desserts. Place was just packed with people, there was a little bit of a wait but staff... More

My family and I went to Knapp's Country Market on Easter Sunday for brunch. We have 2 kids under 4 who are hard to entertain at restaurants. The kids LOVED the buffet and choice of food. The servers were just amazing with them always smiling and talking to them. Not only was the service great, but there was a park... More

The desserts were great...always have a sweet tooth for them...however, the shelves are not stocked and half the food is past its due date. The stock for gifts is hardly existent and they are over-priced for their buffets. I'll take a pass!

We have been coming to Knapps for the last 4 years and have always had an outstanding experience. We really enjoy a business that appreciates your business, from a friendly greeting and customer service staff that seem to really enjoy answering your questions and letting you know what would be of interest to us. On our last visit last week... More

Knapp's has a nice dining area with a wonderful view of the farm and fruit picking area. They also have a nursery attached. As well, there is a store where one can purchase many gourmet items. I've actually not eaten at the restaurant, but my wife has and she was not truly thrilled. The food was Ho Hum and unimaginative... More
