I ate breakfast here two days in a row and the quality is very, very good. Different egg varieties, cereals, pancakes, French toast, fresh fruit, sausage gravy and creamed chipped beef, all in a buffet with a very reasonable price. On the lower floor is a dinner theatre with Amish themed shows.

On the weekend with the wife looking for something easy and simple. We stopped in after seeing the add in the Lancaster Visitors Guide. They were busy but we were seated right away. The place is very clean. The broasted chicken was very good but the rest of the food, while prepared well, was just the usual Pa. Dutch buffet... More

We've been coming to Lancaster County for over 40 years. This is a great restaurant, with consistently good Amish style food. We prefer the lunch buffet for a variety of reasons. You can order from the menu, or just get the Soup & Salad Bar or go for the works, their Buffet! The unique food offered is very tasty, especially... More

Always a favorite when visiting the Lancaster area. Just plain good food, attentive service and fair prices. We visit the area often and always stop in for dinner! If you would like a genuine local experience, sit at the counter instead of the dining room (we usually do). It's always fun and interesting to listen to the Mennonite and Amish... More

We've been to a few smorgasbord's in the area and in our opinion this wasn't the best. The food selection was smaller than most of the other places in the area and food quality was average. The service was friendly, but had to wait a long time for a refill of soda and the waitress ended up forgetting to bring... More

We had coupons for 2 dinner and 2 breakfast smorgasbords. All the food was delicious and fresh. The area was very clean. You can order on the menu or get smorgasbord. They have breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as soup, salad and rolls smorgasbord and dessert smorgasbord. Take out also.

I loved this place. The food was so good, and there was such a variety of foods to eat. Our server was a sweet girl who have been there for 5 years.

My family and I ate here for lunch on a Sat, and were not disappointed. We planned to choose an item off of the menu, but ended up getting the lunch buffet, as it was only a few dollars more than the lunch items on the menu. The weekend lunch buffet is not cheap--$14.50 per person, which is more than... More

First, I give five-star reviews to restaurants that exhibit not only excellent food and service, but also great value. The Buffet was a few cents short of $20 per person. I find this reasonable and average, but not "great" value. That being said, the.food.is.awesome. It is what one thinks of when they think "Amish"--minus the chicken pot pie. I was... More
