We go for the breakfast Smorgasboard. Great variety and always fresh and hot. Variety is normal breakfast items and those appropriate to the area.

Again, it depends on what you are looking for on whether or not a specific restaurant is perfect or a perfect disaster. For what we were looking for on a June morning, this restaurant was perfect. My husband wanted a simple breakfast that he could order off the menu. I wanted to spend a little time outside of the metropolitan... More

This is one of the best places to eat in Lancaster. The ONLY! Tiny tiny complaint that I have is the limited amount of food, but other then that, excellent. The food is so yummy, the buffet is always restocked with food. Best of all, there's always service with a smile. My kids absolutely love it, especially the adorable "Noah's... More

But as compared to the other "buffets" in the area this is the cheapest. The food as with any large scale operation did need the salt and pepper.... More

The price is just to high for a dinner buffet. Food is bland . Nothing special Wish I had ordered off menu instead.

You might be surprised to hear that our pricing is pretty comparable for the area, and we serve more than half a million guests per year. Still, we’re sorry we didn’t “wow” you with our PA Dutch cooking and hope you’ll stop in again. More

We stopped here for breakfast and were delighted with all the selections of breakfast foods. Everything tasted good and they kept the buffet filled. Will return here again.
