I have been coming to lancaster and shady maple since i was a baby and still enjoy it as an adult. This is a 2 hr drive for me but always worth it. I love all the home cooked food and lots of variety. The price is reasonable and busiest times move quickly. The breakfast is just as good. Lunch on a friday is best value and slower then the wkend. After you eat you can walk it all off in their huge gift shop below where u can most definitely find yourself and gift including some ashers chocolates(salted dark chocolate caramels) to take home. I always visit the famers market grocery store next door to pick up more of those yummy buffet items to take home. Once u go once you will come back again and again.
