Two types of service were offered, family style or regular restrauant style. It was more expensive to get the family style and it included some of everything, we didn't want that much food. We ate in the regular restaruant. Basic homecooked food, choices of fried chicken, meatloaf, pork and sauerdraut, maybe one other thing. It came with vegetable choices and dessert. It was good, but very basic, the best item on the table was the whipped butter, which was delicious. We had more than enough food and took as much home. The cracker pudding was excellent, as well, but we were so full that we took dessert home.

In comparison to other family style restaurants (Daniel Boone Inn, Boone, NC-excellent!), the Good and Plenty was disappointing. Plenty of food was available but the items were nothing special. The fried chicken was good and fresh but the desserts were the biggest disappointment with way too much breading used in pies. Our server was too busy with several groups and only after dessert did I get a first refill of my drink. Our group (9) went to Miller's Smorgasborg the next night and regretted not going to Millers both nights.

I have lived here for 46 years. I recently received a gift certificate to the Good 'N Plenty Restaurant. The choices given for the Family Style didn't seem too interesting so we decided to eat from their menu instead. First, the portions were extremely small. The salad was served in a small "chow-chow" or "coleslaw" bowl. I ordered the roast beef. Not tasty at all. Even more disappointing was their turkey dinner that my husband ordered. It was not fresh carved Turkey, but some type of pressed turkey. Very salty and so disappointing. On a positive note, their shoo-fly pie is excellent. As a local, I would highly recommend Dienner's Country Restaurant on Rte. 30 (limited hours). If they're closed, the Bird-in-Hand Family Restaurant is also a good example of PA Dutch cooking.

If you don't mind sitting with random strangers for dinner, this may be the perfect place to go. There is plenty of amish food offered: sausage, ham, fried chicken or roast beef, breads, chow-chow, mashed potatoes, vegtable of the day to desert. Good N Plenty also offers a more private dinning experience in the original farmhouse or private dinning room. You are able to select from a menu that offers the entree, side, and dessert from $9.50 to $12.95. Beverage is extra.

We went to Good & Plenty on Monday, August 20th to the family style part of the restaurant after not having been there is quite a few years even though we go to the area 4-8 times a year. Never will go again. So disappointing. All you can eat is not what they serve. The "platter" of beef stew was large portion for one person, or an average portion for two and yet we were a table of ten. By the time we could request additional beef stew, we had to wait so long it was very frustrating. The portions are less than I put on the table for a regular dinner. You have to constantly ask for more of everythng and by the time it gets there you are so tired of waiting and then again, tiny portion arrives, still not enough for all at the table. Shame on Good & Plenty for not doing the right thing. The food is good but the portions are shameful.

Do not recommend you try it. Certainly we won't visit this place again.
