Way out in the country we were delighted to find a restaurant of this quality. Nothing fancy - basic home cooking. Broccoli casserole with crushed Ritz crackers on top. Chicken, salisbury steak, roast pork. The only lettuce was iceburg, and the mashed potatoes were instant. The fresh tomatoes and blackberries from their gardens were the highlights of the meal.

Went here after a recommendation from Bob at White Oaks Cabins -- great food, a really good value and the play land was a huge hit with the kids. The fired chicken still makes my mouth water ;)

I always prefer to avoid chain restaurants when we travel but, with teenage boys, sometimes it's a hard sell. This was no exception. It was 11:00 and they wanted breakfast; I just wanted something to eat! The buffet was extensive but it was lunch time. They weren't very busy yet so I asked if there was a chance they could...

The Schwartz family runs the resturant, not a corporate chain. All of the food is like what your grandma would cook. Puts Amish resturants to shame. Service is great and food is even better.

as I watched the billboard go by on Interstate 64 I thought finally I will find a good place to eat. I walked in to find it as a cafeteria style restaurant. I almost left. Not my favorite style of eating. I figured I would give it a try as I was very hungry. I got the all you can... More

Schwartz Amish Restaurant is a true find. I normally don't like buffet style but this is worth it. Food all home style organic Amish. We splurged for $10.99 all you can eat. Nothing disappointed. Cute little playground for kids. Not far from I64 on our way to French Lick

We are from Ohio and stopped in here after going on a train ride in French Lick IN. It is buffet style....but everything is homemade and delicious. I can't believe it is run by a family who had 12 kids. You must experience it yourself.

Depends on how good of a cook your Mom was. If she was a good cook then you'll find her food at Schwartz Family Restaurant. The sour cream mashed potatoes are to die for as is the brocoli casserole. This is family food complete with homemade pies. If you catch it on music night you can set a spell and... More

If you are heading south from French Lick, skip all the franchises and stop in at Swartz. It's pretty good, family style, cafeteria style with an "all you can eat" option. It is SUPER clean and very good, courteous service. Did I mention the all you can eat INCLUDES all the pie choices and about a dozen hard ice cream... More
