Description: The Kling House Restaurant is the home of Kitchen Kettle Village in Intercourse, PA. The house nurtured three generations of Klings and Burnleys before the Lancaster County farmhouse became a restaurant. The front porch, living room, dining room and office remain in tact but now we greet hungry guests for breakfast or lunch. Although coconut cream pie has become our signature dessert, the breakfast or lunch menus are full of Lancaster County recipes which feature Kitchen Kettle Village products. Cinnamon raisin French toast or baked oatmeal for breakfast. Cranberry chicken salad served open faced with Kitchen Kettle Cranberry Orange Marmalade for lunch. And the very best shoofly pie in all the land. We sometimes eat shoofly pie for breakfast! At Christmastime we offer special dinners with Mrs. Claus and Yummie the five Friday nights between Thanksgiving and December 19th. These magical nights fill up quickly, click here for all the details. When the weather cooperates, enjoy outdoor dining on the Terrace. You can watch the buggies go by and just relax in the sunshine.

We spent the day in Amish country, saw the reviews here and gave it a try, well worth the trip, great menu selection, very reasonably priced for at tourist area and the food was delicious, and huge portions.

“Very good American food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014

Nice traditional American food and a good lunch dining experience while at Kitchen Kettle Village. Had the chicken salad with a great cranberry relish on top which was part of a special combo offer. Enjoyed the dessert best of all. A simple lemon sorbet with a paper thin oatmeal cookie which was delicious! Restful break from shopping. Good service with some nice crackers and pepper jam provided instead of the typical bread basket.

“gourmet food at reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

One of the perks of staying overnight at Kitchen Kettle Village is the voucher they give for a breakfast at this superb Amercian restaurant. I have enjoyed their delicious meals for the last 5-7 years.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

We visited on a Saturday afternoon and had a wonderful experience. The food was great - and the portions were huge! I had the pork bbq and it did not disappoint. It wasn't typical Amish fare, so you might be disappointed if you're looking for that but it is definitely home cooked food. The staff was wonderful with our toddler and kept her happy and well fed (she had the chicken nuggets and they were really good too!) We will definitely go back.

“Ok, not necessarily Amish though.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

To be honest, they never claim to be an Amish style restaurant. They do serve traditional American food, which is pretty good. Prices are good. Nice atmosphere. One of the better things about the Kitchen Kettle Village, which for the most part is disappointing. You can't go wrong if you eat there.
