Had to go to a dinner meeting, order off the menu. Basic rule, when in doubt order a BLT, it they can't get that right, forget the rest. Bacon was cold, old and burnt leftovers. Tomatoes were jelly soft and limited lettuce...poor presentation. So bad I skipped the rest of the meal and desserts.

I love their sandwiches, but I find them a bit expensive for what they serve. The staff is super friendly and for some reason I love the look of this place.

This restaurant was suggested by the ladies at Weaver's dry goods. It is absolutely amazing!! Fantastic sandwiches and ice cream specialties. Highly recommend the turkey croissant.

The Udder Choice is one of the most unique restaurant in Lancaster County. Food is sooooo good and ice cream is WOW. So many different flavors and even broke ground for the build with an ice cream scoop hung inside. Very awesome decore everywhere you look.

My husband and I ate at The Udder Choice for dinner on June 29. Everyone that helped us was very friendly. We were able to sit wherever we wanted. The atmosphere is like that of a big barn, and they have a huge collection of ice cream scoops. Everything is made on the premises. I ordered the turkey croissant sandwich,... More

Get ready to be surrounded by all sorts of ice cream memorabilia -- signs, a collection of ice cream scoops that'll be sure to amaze any ice cream fan! The open barn-like restaurant can get a bit noisy, but no one really cares because the food is terrific -- and really reasonably priced, too. It's a win-win all around.

The Udder Choice such a clever name for an ice cream spot. It was very tasty and everything was so friendly. You got to try the raspberry. The ice cream was so good and the waffle cone was the best!

The homemade soups are creative and delicious. Love the sandwiches and salads. They have many flavors of ice cream not found many places, e.g. Teaberry and butter- brickle, old fashioned flavors. The place is decorated with old ice cream signs, and has a collection of ice cream scoops. Very friendly staff.

A must visit when in the area, the ice cream flavors are scrumptious! We enjoyed lunch first, some of the best soups in the area, and delish rueben,and gryo sandwiches. The sweetest treats are the plentiful selections of ice cream! Definately a wonderful experience, and the decor is udderly awesome!
