We’ve eaten lunch at this restaurant a couple of times now and it’s always been very yummy. We live in Lancaster County and come over to the Nook for the climbing gym and if we want more than counter service this is an excellent option....More

Was there with a group of 25 people. The food was very good and our waitress did a rearkable job considering the amount of people she was serving. I definitely recomend giving this place a try.

We ate breakfast here the morning after a wedding. The staff was obviously overwhelmed and struggled to keep things moving. It took 1/2hour to get a bowl of oatmeal, and it came without its advertised toppings. It also took 1/2 hour for orders of pancakes...More

Nice bar good menu. Had shrimp tacos and wife had burger. Good food clean place. The only problem is the restaurant is part of a sports complex and hotel that caters to youth sports teams. Fantastic place for them not so good for date night.More

Went for breakfast, the only time the waitress came back voluntarily was to see if we needed the check. The only thing she removed from the table was the bill within a 3-4 min of signing the receipt. Dishes from buffet left on table. Drinks...More
