Great buffet and not as overwhelming as some of the other buffets in the area. The food was delicious and the price was good. I would definitely come back when we visit the area.

We were staying at the nearby Amis Country Motel and were recommended this place for dinner(it's run by the same family). We were really impressed. We had to wait for 20 minutes before a table was ready. This didn't bother us at all, although judging by some other reviews it bothered other people! Have a little patience! Besides it gave... More

Have eaten here a number of times over the past few years and always had a good experience. We had dinner here on 9/25. I know it was a Thursday night, but no carving board, no peel and eat shrimp, and no Noah's Ark station for the kids. We have been there during the week in the Summer so I... More

Each time we visit Lancaster County, PA., we're having dinner at the Bird In Hand Family Restaurant. Even though we have to wait up 30 minutes to be seated, it's worth the wait. The food is just great. Especially the vegetable beef soup, that is delicious and my favorite of the buffet. To bad they're not open on Sundays.

We stopped to eat there today really looking for an array of food. Had very limited number of items for meats and vegetables. Very disappointing.

This was our 3rd stop here and once again it didn't disappoint. The service was pleasant and prompt. We opted for something off the menu as we aren't big on buffets (Wife works in a store with a buffet and she sees what folks do at them). I had Belgian Waffles with Strawberries, Cherries, blueberries and whipped cream:) Oh, and... More

Excellent. Server was friendly. Cute gift shop to wander around while waiting. Food was fabulous. Everything you could want. Comfort food. Best shoo fly and oatmeal pie is to die for. Only negative comment is the wait was 45 minutes. Well worth it.

Our family gathered together to share a weekend where no one had to worry about hosting anyone. After a stressful summer, it was the break we all needed and looked forward to. There were 9 of us, and we all stayed in the adjacent hotel. After a great tour of the area we checked into our rooms, then walked to... More

Thanks for letting us know what happened. We certainly do get busy this time of year, and it's always a good idea to call ahead when you're on a schedule. More

I lived in Lancaster for about twenty years and now live in Delaware. The buffet here had every food memory present. I was so delighted to enjoy hot bacon dressing, whoopie pies, red beet eggs, lemon sponge pie, amazing fried chicken, stuffing , apple butter and more! What a wonderful family meal and reasonable prices.
