“Best All You Can Eat Buffet in Lancaster!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2010

Dienner's is a no-frills restaurant with booths and tables set amid a pert, bright atmosphere. This restaurant is run by Amish, and the food is great! We visited two nights in a row, the price was $9.95 including all the bountiful salad bar, the main fare buffet selections, and the best dessert selections around!
Don't miss the broccoli salad with hint of bacon, and the roasted chicken was a delight! Serving the best whipped potatoes and buttered Pennsylvania "Deutsch" noodles, the other selections were great; beef tips, and on Friday, fried shrimp and fried cod fish!
Our waitresses, "Kath" on Thursday, and "Roseanne" on Friday, were very sweet and attentive!
It's a relaxing place great for couples, families or anyone with an interest in home-cooked food at a fabulous price!
Dienner's is adjacent to the Windmill Dutch gift shop on Route 30, east from the 896/30 junction, right past Millers!
Compared to the other "family style" restaurants of more fame, Dienner's was, hands down, the very best!
Come hungry, leave with a smile!

“The best PA Dutch cooking ever!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2010

This is easily the best restaurant my wife and I have eaten at in this general area of PA. Great food. Friendly staff. You are probably going to have to wait to go in, but trust me, it's worth the wait.

“Great buffet, great price.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2010

We visited this buffet for lunch two days in a row. Great lunch price of $8.95. Great selection of hot foods, salads and DESSERTS. If visiting for dinner/supper, get their early as they stop seating early. (at 6 PM I think)

“Don't Miss This Place, Worth the Wait”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2010

We arrived about 1pm on a bright and sunny Saturday afternoon. We waited about 30 minutes for a table, during which we looked around the shops and sat in the rockers. The friendly staff showed us our table and brought drinks. For little more that the price of a value meal at MacDonalds, we dined from the buffet on numerous local favorites, salads and incredible treats. Ignore the place down the street with all the coupons and go to Dienner's for a great meal and a great value!!!
