“The Reviews Are True!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

We stayed in Lancaster after a day in Hershey Park and selected the Silver Spring Family Restaurant based on the fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor. The reviews are all true!

If you are looking for the Pennsylvania Dutch, all you care to eat, touristy, stick to the ribs type meal........this is NOT it! If you are looking for a huge selection of perfectly cooked food; wonderful and attentive servers (Whitney was great); a family run establishment that takes pride in the food they serve; and lastly, an owner who personally greets his guests and assures their every satisfaction.......The Silver Spring Family Restaurant is for you.

This is not a glitzy or fancy eatery. It is a local restaurant that serves the neighborhood just as well as visitors. Portions are generous; prices are reasonable and the choices overwhelming. Our party of six enjoyed pretzel crusted salmon, chicken souvlaki, Greek style lemon chicken, chicken wings, steak stirfry, chef's salad, greek salad and several desserts. Everything was wonderful. Also, Lots of choices for kids at $6.50 including a small drink and ice cream.

We got to chat with the owner and it was evident how much pride and enthusiasm he generates in his restaurant and his Greek heritage........I'm prejudiced because he is formally from Long Island, NY.

Do yourself a favor and add this wonderful eatery to your list of places to visit when you travel to beautiful Lancaster.....it might be a little out of the way but you will not regret it!

“Best Home Cooking Ever”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

This is the 3rd time that we have returned to this restaurant. We've had breakfast, lunch and dinner and all are fantastic. If you enjoy hot sticky buns, we recommend you order one of their home made sticky bun sundaes with nuts. Be sure you don't order a large meal with this giant of a sundae. Ask for Whitney as your server as she is one of the best. All of the servers and staff are very, very friendly, but we really enjoy Whitney's personality.

“Silver Spring Repast”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Just recently enjoyed a visit with three relatives to the Silver Spring Family Restaurant. Sampled Silver Springs Fries and also chicken wings as appetizers. Both were first class. All the meals were correctly and promptly delivered to our table. My Egg Plant Parmigiana with spaghetti was as good as any I ever ate and the other members of our party all commented on how good their entrees were. Our waitress Angela was friendly and attentive to our needs and made sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our meal. The cashier and other staff that we interacted with were also friendly. Desserts were also outstanding with our sampling two of the offerings. We definitely plan to include them in any future trips into Pennsylvania's York and Lancaster counties.

“Great little restaurant”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

I moved into the area a few years ago, and have now been to the restaurant a couple of times - and been very happily surprised with the quality of food and service. The menu is quite expansive - and normally you'd think that would mean the food quality would suffer as a result. However, so far everything I've tried there has been fantastic!

Shout out to Jordan, who served us at our last visit, and who was quite attentive and pleasant. Thank you for making our visit a great one!
