“Food galore!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

What can I say, this is the best buffet food around, and you can't beat the price! Most buffet food is really horrible, but this place has the taste of good home cooking. I Like to sample a little of everything, and don't worry, there's enough to choose from for us gluten sensitive people. It does get really crowded, so it's best to go during the week to avoid waiting for a long time. Even though there is a lot of seating, the food is too good to have just one go around. And of course, there's the great gift shop downstairs....

“Go early and make sure you are hungry!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

Awesome breakfast buffet at a great price. Get there early as the lines are very long. Dinner not as good and a little pricey but free on your birthday.

“Great stop, for great food. ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We always stop here for a meal if we're in the area. This is our favorite buffet. This visit didn't disappoint. The food was just as delicious as usual. This time they had smoked beef brisket on the menu and it was superb! It was some of the best I've had anywhere. Stop in and try it out for some good home cooking.
It does get really busy at usual meal times so I always go a little early or a little later than usual to avoid the big lines.

“Good food in the heart of Amish country!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We stopped here as part of a bus trip for lunch. Food was good and there were more options than you could imagine. I especially enjoyed the salmon and the desserts. There were many bread options. Everything I tried was good and the temperature what it was supposed to be. The staff was friendly and the place was clean. Many bathrooms and nice shopping area downstairs! If you want a good meal and are in the area please stop here.
