We visited this restaurant in Bird in Hand as we did many times before & was not disappointed. The service was fast & friendly the food warm a very inexpensive Pa Dutch meal. Shoe-fly pie is a most. They have smorgasbord, a large restaurant with plenty of parking.

We went back the the Bird in Hand Restaurant because the last few times visiting the area, we have noticed the food is always fresh and the restaurant is clean and well lit. My friend had the buffet, and I ordered off the menu. I thought the buffet was a little high priced, I think it might have gone up... More

Whenever we visit the Amish country, we like to stop and eat here, whether it's off the menu or their buffet. Been to others, and their buffet, seems to be more diversified, and price appropriate. I wouldn't say it's the best, but I would say that it is good. Some of the foods are a little sweet for me, but... More

This is a rather large, very popular restaurant. When you select the smorgasboard, it is serve yourself, all-you-can-eat. They had these choices and many more on the day we went: Broasted chicken, various meats, fish, soups, veggies, shoo-fly pie, apple crisp, oatmeal pie and excellent chocolate ice cream. Most everything was to our liking, but if not, we could just... More

I've been going to the Bird in Hand Family Restaurant ever since I was a baby, and even after 22 years, it's my favorite place to eat. This restaurant features breakfast, lunch, and dinner in which you can order from the menu or opt for the smorgasbord. You can't go wrong with either option! The food is all local which... More

My wife and I stopped here for an early dinner. It was a Thursday evening, around four-thirty, and we were seated right away. Our server, Andrew, was a pleasant young gentleman, who was very attentive to our needs and efficient. We each had a cup of their chicken corn chowder, which was thick with ingredients, hot and delicious. My wife... More
