Great lunch before a show.

While a large buffet was available, we chose to order from the menu. Our meal was plentiful and tasty. While not gourmet, it was delicious and service friendly.

Yes, they have pickled eggs and whoopie pies! Very hearty buffet with special features that change daily. Great place to take visitors so that they can get a good sampling of local cuisine; and the women love the gift shop, and the kids love the petting zoo. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

We arrived at opening and the food was tired looking and not very tasty. I was disappointed. I've been here in the past for dinner and that was always very good. I'll give it another try next visit.

We always stop here for a quick lunch before we go over to the Sight and Sound Theater. Lots of good choices and food is served quickly and is very good. Great gift shops too for souvenirs. We really enjoy this place.

I was about to go to this restaurant because I was in the Main Inn at the Hersey Farm house. The food my mom and I had was nice, hot, fresh and delicious. The guest service was great too.

The food was worse than bad, the iced tea tasted like an ashtray and the server said "Well everybody else loves our iced tea." The food all tasted like chemical laden frozen food that was heated up in the microwave. None of the eight of us could finish our food and my nieces and nephews will eat just about anything....

Every sign you encounter on the way to this area says Millers is the best buffet. However, I highly recommend Hershey Farm and consider it the best buffet in the area. Hershey Farm has very fresh food and a lot of variety. Many of the foods are traditional foods for Pennsylvania Dutch and are very tasty. There is a station... More
