They picked the hot dogs and chips from the menu. I had the Chef Salad which was good. The lettuce was crisp and seemed fresh. Our waitress was friendly and a... More

I love this restaurant. It is my pick to go to for lunch or dinner whether to get ice cream or not. The variety of soups is amazing and all homemade on site. The food is fresh, the servings are quite ample, the service is top notch, and the prices are quite reasonable. No matter how busy the restaurant is,... More

A very nice lunch stop. Great place for soup and ice cream lovers. The decor is all historical ice cream items. They have lots of homemade flavors to choose from. We had great soup and shared club sandwiches. Very good!

Loved this restaurant. We were visiting the area and noticed lots of locals dining there. Soups are delicious as well as sandwiches. Don't miss their homemade ice cream sundaes. Excellent servers. We will definitely go back again when visiting the area.

We just happened to see The Udder Choice as we were passing through on our way to Lancaster. What a find! We were seated immediately and were happy with the service and our meals also. Prices are VERY affordable! Be sure to try out the desserts!

We enjoy this down home restaurant. I especially love their soups, I have not eaten a soup that I didn't like. I had cheesy mushroom today, the first time I had this soup and it was wonderful. Their sandwiches are good and the have a very unique Udder Hoagie. Service is friendly and efficient. Specials are always worth ordering and... More
