Have eaten here several times when traveling through south central Pennsylvania. It's comfort food, no frills. You can order from menu or have buffet. Have never seen anyone order from menu.

Fried chicken has never disappointed. If you are craving country-style veggies ( cooked in ham broth for a long time) go for the green beans...Pork and sauerkraut is tasty, but hard to find the pork.

Desserts aplenty. The cake is pre-sliced and tends to dry out. Always a good selection of pies. Never tried the ice cream, but you're in dairy country, so I imagine it's pretty good.

Staff is always friendly. Don't miss gift shop in way out...quite a collection.

Mountain Gate had good service and delicious food. We particularly enjoyed the pie and ice cream. They were able to take care of 3 tour buses full of people in a very reasonable amount of time.

I wasn't impressed as other folks say they are. It's a nice place but again, i wasn't very happy with the food quality. Definitely not 'home made".

This is a quick place to stop and get a bite when you are in a hurry or just want something to take the edge off.

Wasnt bad. Somethings were bland tasting and others were good. I thought it was a lil pricey for what they had. I'd go back but not out of my way for it
