We only did the breakfast buffet, but it was very good and the price was right. The restaurant itself is a simple diner-type place with tables and a buffet area. The food was simple and had several Pennsylvania Dutch things (scrapple, corn mush, certain sausages) which added a unique (to outsiders, like us) variety to the buffet. There were standard... More

Dienner's is okay. After reading the MANY extraordinary reviews, I figured that I would try it out. The waitress was really nice to us and promptly picked up any empty dishes, so that was great! But the food did not live up to the expectations. Some of the food was very good - I really enjoyed the rolls and popcorn... More

I guess people on vacation are in a better mood and more positive. That must explain all the great reviews. The place is cramped and the buffet choice is very small. The food itself is just OK. This is a place for tourists and most of the customers are tourists. The staff is not unfriendly but not that friendly either... More

Overshadowed by the Dutch windmill next door, you might almost drive right past Dienner's Country Restaurant and not even see it. In fact, I have, for years! But, on a recent trip to the Lancaster area for shopping with friends, they took me to Dienner's, their favorite place to eat. I was so impressed! First, I could not believe the... More

Based on the reviews, four of us went here mid-afternoon after seeing Moses. We were very disappointed. Price was fair, everything was hot and fresh but "homemade" it was not. Chicken was from chicken, but most everything else was "prepared" food. Shrimp and cod were deep fried on site but started the day in a frozen bag. Rolls were not... More

We have tried several buffets and family style restaurants in the Amish area and this is our favorite. The food is very good and fresh, and you can't beat the price. If you plan on eating there, you need to know they close at 6pm.

We stopped here around 2:00 p.m. on a Wednesday afternoon for a late lunch. We still had to turn in our name and there was a wait of about 20 minutes for a table.... that is a testament to how good it is....taking names at 2:00 in the afternoon!! The hostess who took our name and took us to our... More

I usually do not write reviews unless something has impacted me. What can one say about Dienner's, excellent Amish experience. First do not go here expecting to sit down right away, you will have wait 15-45 minutes (well worth it!). While you wait walk over to the right or left of the restaurant and go into the local shops. Once... More
