First time in and the food was great. The homemade soup was wonderful. Had the crab au gratin was very different but good. There is a lot of seafood on the menu but not a problem to find something you will like.

Stopped in here after finding this on my GPS. The food was outstanding! The portions were huge!!!! Good, home-cooking! The service was great! Prices were average, not outrageous - not cheap! Dessert was DELICIOUS! If we come back to the area, for sure will stop in again!

This is a local favorite with lots to choose, reasonable prices and convenient. It sits in a building that looks like a factory or old warehouse but only uses a corner of the ground floor. You can find something you like from a large menu and a wide price range. We had a large prime rib and sort of splurged.... More

We moved away from the York area several years ago and whenever we make our way back, the Central Family Restaurant is "A Must Stop". It's very much a locals restaurant with a very local feel. It's in an old dairy building that is very fitting. Carl, the owner of the establishment, is very aware of what's going on and... More

Not a fancy diner but the good food makes it a necessary stop when hungry. The diner is clean, the staff is friendly, the service is fast, and the menu offers a good variety of foods. An overall good value for the money.

Stopped here for dinner before a York Revolution game. The location is very convenient to the ballpark, which is also why it's packed on game night. The food was average in taste and portions. The waitress seemed a bit stressed with the volume. She wasn't very friendly, got some of our order wrong, she never stopped by to see how... More
