We stopped when we saw the sign on I-78 and were pleased with a good selection - like a diner plus American restaurant. We had good wraps and enjoyed friendly service. And there's a Bell & Evans factory store adjacent, if you have a cooler and would like to bring home some naturally-produced chicken.

When ever my husband and I are going to an event in Harrisburg or past Harrisburg, we always stop at Esther's for breakfast and usually stop in again on our way home for dinner. The food is always good and hot when it arrives at our table.

Delicious! First time in a long time that I couldn't start eating as soon as the food arrived because it was too hot! The turkey was fresh & moist and the potato filling was just terrific! Had a slice of chocolate pie for dessert and loved it! All in all, a hot hardy meal at an excellent price! The staff... More

Went there for the awesome fried chicken we had once before. No longer on the menu. Hubby had roast beef sandwich and fries, and he said it was ok. My breaded pork chops were juicy but the breading was tasteless. I ordered potato filling as a side and it was awful--a gluey mix of mashed potatoes and bread. My baked... More

We stopped while travelling. It was the only restaurant advertised so thought we would take a chance. So glad we did. My husband and I each ordered the hot roast turkey sandwich -- he had fries and I had the mashed potatoes. The turkey was real -- not pressed from cold cuts but an actual turkey breast. Also real mashed... More

Great Belgian Waffle that was not filling and very light along with slices of bacon. They also had Sugar Free pancake syrup...which made me happy. Great place to eat, right on Rt. 22 where the locals all gather for coffee , breakfast and chit chat with their friends. Great service along with decent prices.

We met some friends of ours for breakfast, here, a few months ago, and we decided to go back for my birthday. Everything was delicious, and we all enjoyed our food. They have a huge menu, so everyone will find something they like. This is a favorite of the locals, so you know the food has to be good! The... More

As I make the trip back and forth from Virginia to New Jersey I look forward to my visit at Esther's. Yesterday I stopped and enjoyed mashed potatoes, lima beans and a hot bowl of soup. I relaxed for over an hour and Patty then served me hot coffee and coconut custard pie. DELICIOUS and great service!
