Smorgasbord

I was full with salad plate and one dinner plate. We all got the lunch smorgasbord which included the desert bar. The food was good. I liked the broasted chicken and roast beef. I would have been disappointed if I had added the desert bar to my meal. I believe they were lacking in this area.

Breakfast buffet was not what I expected. However, the french toast was awesome! I think vegeterian meats should be offered along with turkey meats.

The turkey dinner with dressing is very good. One may eat off the menu, the buffet, or choose a number of options from soup salad bar, with dessert or full buffet.

It would have been pretty easy to just stay there and eat for an hour; but we had other places to visit, so we restrained ourselves. The selections at as good as any we've seen elsewhere with a few things not always found. It's also not every place that has a dessert section for a breakfast buffet! Shoofly pie--it isn't... More

Nothing to dislike, everything to like! Situated adjacent to the Inn and Stage... Mini golf and Farmer's Market nearby. Lots to select from for breakfast (smorgasbord or menu style) including pie, cookies and puddings for breakfast dessert. My first time having scrapple and it was very good. Dinner was probably just as good, but we were somewhere else at that... More

Thanks for letting us know. Glad you enjoyed the scrapple. All of our breakfast meats, including the scrapple, come fresh from a local farm. We hope to see you here again soon. More

Maybe cause I live in NYC I just don't see how people can't brag about this place it is SOOO reasonably priced with such a high quality menu. for kids, they multiply the age of the child by .99 or something silly like that to charge. Breakfast smorgasbord is delicious. waffles, screambled eggs, egg casserole, home fries, tater tots, pastry... More

My wife and I were at a couples retreat the weekend of 3/10/15 and the Breakfast buffet was included. The food was great. Nice and hot, the staff was always refilling and making sure the food was fresh. The wait staff were so attentive and sweet. Great spot to eat and if their dinner is as good as their breakfast...

Had lunch here on Friday, 4/3/15. You can order from both the menu and the buffet. We chose to get the lunch buffet and were not disappointed. From the salad bar and soups to the hot entrees, everything was tasty and cooked to perfection. Plenty of selections to satisfy even the finicky eater. Very nice dessert bar and plenty of... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch on a Saturday during a recent trip to Lancaster County. We thought the food was fine, but nothing special.
