Simply amazing

My family was in York for a volleyball tournament, and we wanted to have a team dinner somewhere, but we had about 30 people, so the options were limited. The tournament went long, but the restaurant remained open for us well beyond their closing time. The service was excellent and accommodating... read more

I have eaten her a few times in the past month and haven't been disappointed. Love their breakfast platters and the lunch selection is massive. Great food!

In town for a volleyball tournament. We went to the Central family restaurant after our play for a team dinner. They were so accommodating and even stayed open late when our game ran late. Food was good too !! My daughter recommends the milkshakes!!😊

Central Family Restaurant has tons of choices to make so there's always something for everyone. My favorite thing is the friendly people working there. They have a hodge podge of coffee mugs so I just had to bring some in to share; maybe you'll get the one with my daughter on it!

A group of seniors went on a tour of the Harley factory. Stopped for lunch at the Central Family Resturant, our servers were terrific, food was wonderful and everyone left stuffed. They could not have improved on anything. Anyone traveling near York, PA it's worth going here even if they have to go out of the way. Seniors can be... More

Nice hometown diner. Friendly staff. Good breakfast for a good price. Doesn't look like much from the outside (like a warehouse), old style inside but clean. Would go again if in the area. Just down the street from our hotel.

Awesome home cooked food and great service. My family has eaten here many times and we have never been disappointed. Their breakfasts can't be beat for flavor and value. I highly recommend this place.

if you are in the area this is a great place to eat, my favorite is breakfast. They have a great selection and the price is very reasonable. Their specials include anything that you could possible want for breakfast along with a very comprehensive menu. If for some reason something is not to your liking, say something, and it will...
