worth the wait!

Went for a late lunch because we had read about the wait times during peak time. Got there at 2 and it was jam packed. Got our number and was told 35 minutes. That was about right. we found some seats in the back by the bathrooms to sit and wait. The waitstaff was fabulous and the cleanup crew... read more

We live about 30 minutes from Ronks and don't get out that way too often. It had been several years since we had visited Dienner's. My in laws rave about this place so I wanted to try it again. I must say I was very pleasantly surprised. Pennsylvania Dutch food is not my favorite, but our experience at Dienner's was... More

Good buffet food. Rotisserie chicken and vegetables were well prepared. Well worth the $10.15 luncheon price. While waiting for seating, we were given a hand held alert device that enabled us to shop in areas stores while waiting for our table to become available. Will definitely go there again.

Man, what an unassuming place for such great food! When we walked in, I wasn't too impressed with the miniature 'golden corral' style buffet. BUT OH MY WORD! don't miss the beets, stuffing, sauerkraut, beef roast, la beans...heck, everything is good!!! I have pretty high standards being from NOLA, but this met them! Great job! :)

We enjoy this informal buffet for an early dinner. The selection and quality are both good - some choices on the buffet change daily so if you have a favorite (like ham loaf) call ahead to see if it on the menu that day, This is not a fancy place. The staff is both pleasant and helpful. We have been... More

Been to Lancaster to eat many times. Never at Dienners. Not fancy decor but the food was fantastic Pa Dutch cooking. And very inexpensive. You know when there is a dining room full of Amish, you have picked the right place for good home cooking.

Although this was not my first trip to Lancaster, it was the first timer I've eaten at Dienners. Neat, clean and plain decor. Basic buffet set up, but oh! The food. Real home cooking. Delicious vegetables, really real whipped potatoes, don't miss the beets. It was so good we went back for breakfast. Twice. Delicious scrapple, best biscuits I ever... More

For a family raised on country cooking from TN, this place was nothing special! It took us 45mins to get seated, but we are very quickly from the buffet. Salad, fresh veggies, and meat all for a very reasonable price. If you're looking for country cooking buffet at a reasonable price this is a good place!

We had a large group of 40 kids and adults for breakfast on a Saturday morning. The hostess did not handle the seating appropriately even though a list of families with exact numbers were given ahead of time. They had allowed for enough seats but planned the dining room in a poor table arrangement and expected families to be split... More

This is, by far, one of the best buffets in Lancaster. The food is delicious, the service is good, and the prices are ridiculously low, even on Saturday. There aren't 4,000 items to choose from like the mega buffets, but enough to please everyone. The restaurant is a nice size, and you don't have to walk a mile from your... More
