We were back visiting friends in the area. We lived nearby, but moved away 22 years ago. We had fond memories of Shady Maple, and were anxious to go back. We actually ate there twice - once for lunch on Friday and again for dinner on Monday (steak night). When we arrived, we were amazed. Back in the day, the restaurant was in a different location nearby, which is now a furniture store. The new location is huge. We were seated quickly and the 200 foot buffet line was explained to us. The food is the best country/Penn Dutch food you will ever eat in a buffet, and the selection is amazing. Even though it was quite crowded, it never seemed too difficult to get to what you wanted. Their roast beef melts in your mouth, the mashed potatoes are excellent, and the desserts are astounding. Additionally, there are grills that cooked burgers, chicken breast, hot dogs, etc. for lunch and steaks, etc. for dinner. The drink selection includes almost every non-alcoholic drink you can imagine. There is a small service charge added to your bill, but tips are not taken. What else can I say? It is as good as we remember, and we would highly recommend eating there.
