We are lucky enough to live within a 2hr. drive to Amish country and travel there quite frequently--at least once a month. We also spend a couple of nights there at least 4 or 5 times a year. Over the last 3 years we have tried the Farmstead Restr. 4 or 5 different times hoping it will improve, but it hasn't. I can't understand how an Amish style restaurant in this area can have such lackluster, poorly presented food. The first time we went shortly after it opened 3 years ago, the lettuce on the salad bar was brown, like it had perhaps been frozen. When my cousin mentioned this to the manager he said,'That's the way it's supposed to be." We're in our 50's--did he think we'd never seen lettuce before?? We tried again a year or so later and it wasn't much better. Our most recent trip was on Wednesday, and since we were staying at the Comfort Suites right across the street and it was stormy, we decided to give it another chance. They had a buffet, and absolutely nothing had a good flavor. Most of it looked unappetizing, and while nothing tasted awful, nothing tasted good either. There was almost no one there besides our party of 8, and on a summer day in Amish country any restaurant that can't draw a crowd should know that they have a problem. We stayed at Comfort Suites for 3 nights, and at no time did we see more than 4 cars in the parking lot whether it was breakfast, lunch or dinner time. All of the other restaurants in the area have lines and full parking lots at mealtimes. It is such a nice, new big building, and I just can't understand why management doesn't do something to make this restaurant successful. We'll certainly never be back. There are too many good quality restaurants in the same price range in this area.
