Description: The Kling House Restaurant is the home of Kitchen Kettle Village in Intercourse, PA. The house nurtured three generations of Klings and Burnleys before the Lancaster County farmhouse became a restaurant. The front porch, living room, dining room and office remain in tact but now we greet hungry guests for breakfast or lunch. Although coconut cream pie has become our signature dessert, the breakfast or lunch menus are full of Lancaster County recipes which feature Kitchen Kettle Village products. Cinnamon raisin French toast or baked oatmeal for breakfast. Cranberry chicken salad served open faced with Kitchen Kettle Cranberry Orange Marmalade for lunch. And the very best shoofly pie in all the land. We sometimes eat shoofly pie for breakfast! At Christmastime we offer special dinners with Mrs. Claus and Yummie the five Friday nights between Thanksgiving and December 19th. These magical nights fill up quickly, click here for all the details. When the weather cooperates, enjoy outdoor dining on the Terrace. You can watch the buggies go by and just relax in the sunshine.

“Nice place for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

We stayed across the street at the Inn & Spa and had lunch at the Kling House one rainy afternoon. We sat out by the windows and watched the storm move by. I had the chicken salad and my husband had the roast turkey. They both were fresh and delicious. The portions were more than enough. Our server was friendly and attentive - we were not rushed nor forgotten about. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you're visiting the area.

“Nice atmosphere and service but so-so food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

We have eaten there several times while visiting the nearby shops. Restaurant is nice but the food quality needs to improve. My chicken salad had no flavor and my wife's meal was pre-frozen and not fresh. Prices are average and there is no senior discount.

“Can't Say Enough!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

The food at this restaurant is out of this world! The portions are large, the servce is excellent. A great place to go for a good home cooked meal; just be sure to leave room for dessert - the Coconut Cream Pie is to die for!!!!!!!

“Breakfast spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

As we were staying in Kitchen Kettle Village, we ate here each morning. Service was great, food was yummy. Dont expect large portions, but enough to get you going. Everything tasted very fresh, and the atmosphere is very nice, especially if you sit out by the windows! Fun to watch carriages go by.
