You can't beat the price for $12 per person. You get everything from soup, salad, bread, tons of entrees and luscious deserts! Plus you can go back as many times as you want. Food very good. Our waitress was very nice. The place was clean and even had several nice things to purchase.

The Bird-In-Hand Family Restaurant is an excellent place to eat in Lancaster County. The restaurant is very clean, the wait staff is friendly and accommodating to most needs, and the food is excellent. I suggest the buffet (they call it a smorgasbord), which is well-stocked with salads, soups, breads, entrees, vegetables, and desserts. There is even a separate section with children's foods available. The prices are very reasonable for the quality. I can highly recommend this restaurant.

Have been there several times now, once we found it we rarely go anywhere else now. The Hostess was very nice, and our server Tina was just great, tipped her very well, she deserved it. The buffet was fresh and everything was very good, Attendants were on the seen to make sure everything was in place and wiped down. We just love it there and the value is great.
