In planning out trip I knew that I wanted to have one Family Style dinner when we were in Lancaster county and this is what I had expected it to be. My husband, our 2 kids ( 8 & 9) and I sat at a table with 6 other people (two couples and a mom with teenage daughter). Platters were... More

After taking a buggy ride, we enjoyed a nice family dinner. We enjoyed delicious fried chicken, corn, roast and so many other tasty foods. We ordered the sharing portion of the menu. The servings made everyone at the table very full and satisfied. The waitress was very attentive to everyone. We had a great experience! This was our second time... More

We decided to order off the menu. We had a 45 minute wait and when we were finally sitted, there was 10 empty tables! We watched all evening and there were empty tables the whole time, with no less than 7 empty tables at one time. Not worth the wait and very inconsiderate of our time. They must need more... More

This restaurant has excellent food. We have ate at this establishment many times prior. We enjoy the Amish food and family seating. Attached to the restaurant is a large gift shop which we love strolling through and buying gifts for the family.

The food was good and satisfying, but it was not exceptional. Nice staff and service. You have the option of ordering from the menu or sitting with other visitors at large tables and eating all that you want from a rolling buffet.

We descended on Plain & Fancy with a mix of 16 adults & kids. Everyone enjoyed their Amish Feast meal. The overwhelmingly favorite dishes were the fried chicken and the mashed potatoes with gravy. Sausage was tasty too. The "chicken pot pie" didn't include a pastry crust, so we agreed it was more like chicken 'n dumplings, but it was... More

This place has been a family favorite for years. The food never disappoints and they keep it coming until you say stop. The meal includes desserts that are to die for so save some room. That's hard to so with the amazing fried chicken, roast beef and so many other entrees they bring to the table. Great food - worth... More

5 of us had lunch here last week. It was great being seated with others from different parts of the USA. The food was plentiful, wholesome, and well served. Our waiter had only worked here 3 weeks yet he knew when and what to do. He kept our beverage glasses full at all times.

We had to wait almost an hour to sit and order off a menu. We didn't do the feast. When we were finally seated we noticed the majority of the restaurant was empty. It was a Saturday night so I'm not sure what was going on. The food was good and the service friendly. It was a little pricey, about... More

This is my comfort food, Amish family style place ever! You need to do the family style meal and you get a little of everything, actually a lot of everything! You get to sit with people from all over. Last time we met a family from France. Food is unbelievable! The best fried chicken I have ever had. Sausage is... More
