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

Could not ask for a better Host. The food was prepared just right, and it was very fairly priced too. Very good restaurant that is local, and cares about what they plate up.

Been to the restaurant for breakfast; lunch; dinner; and dessert. I would say your best choice is breakfast. The restaurant is clean; well staffed; and great for your average American Diner. Owners are well-respected in the local area,

A good old restaurant with a large menu to please everyone. Steak, soup, sandwiches, seafood, and breakfast items are just a few examples of the large menu. Breakfast is also served all day. The service was great with a prompt waitress. It's not common to see the owner walking from table to table making sure everyone is alright and talking... More

We were on our way to Hershey and wanted to try a different place for breakfast. The place didn't look spectacular driving up to it despite great reviews but served up an excellent breakfast with fine service. Serita was our waitress and did an excellent job of checking in to see if we needed anything. Order was perfect as well.... More

I can't tell you the number of times I've driven by this restaurant and never stopped by. The building from the outside looks a little like a warehouse to me, which maybe is why I never stopped to try it out. A friend of mine though was meeting for breakfast and suggested we try out Central Family Restaurant. So I... More

On our way to Palmyra, Pa for a bowling tournament last weekend, we happened to stumble upon the Central Family Restaurant. What a wonderful find. Their extensive and varied menu had something for everyone in our little group. Even breakfast. Onion rings are scrumptiously delicious. Portions are appetite satisfying. My chicken wrap was so large I had to get half... More
