“Never Dissapointing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2014

Every time i visit the Amish Country, I try to stop by for their "Family Style" Dinning. Love it every time, especially when they have the Ham Loaf, which is my favorite. Th Roast beef wasn't bad either, and the Butter Noodles are fantastic!!

“Good but too much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

Not used to heavy food and such a lot but if that is what you are looking for this spot is great. You can order just from a menu if your prefer and that is less food and less expensive.

The food was average. Good price for the amount of food. They give you a great variety of food to eat - some was average some really good.

“Family Style #1 ... home cooking at its best....a must to go lunch or dinner....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

Some meals are worth talking about for generations... this is one of them.

I remember going here way back in the Summer of '88 and having the best meal of my life. Things have not changed here and that's exactly the way it needs to be. You sit down to an all you can eat feast of meats, sides, starches, veggies, and some great desserts.

This time around awesome fried chicken, corn, green beans, potatoes, and irresistible penn dutch noodles with brown butter mmmm..... and dessert: cherry pie was one of 4 different dishes.

You cannot go wrong here with food or the great service and staff. And being a family style restaurant you never know who you might meet on the road as you sit with others too. The folks we met from CT loved our children.

Good and Plenty... go!!!!! :-)

“Hard to properly quantify my experience.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

Overall this has to be an average review. It borders very good though in many ways but also borders poor in other ways.

The food for the most part was average. The chicken and corn were both very good. But many of the items were poor or terrible.

The family style experience was very interesting and for me was a good experience, but if you sat next to a cold person or people who weren't nice, it could potentially ruin your entire experience.

I wouldn't have been way off to say it was very good or poor to tell you the truth, so I went with average. I doubt I would ever return unless it was with children or friends who were never there before, just to show them the experience.

The service was AMAZING though. Those women deserve awards. They do a terrific job.
