We came in and gave our order for the buffet to the server. As we approached the buffet, they started taking it down. The server never said the buffet was closing. High prices for food some of which had been out since lunch time.

This restaurant is liked by both the locals and tourists. Friendly place to eat. Smorgasbord and menu available. They also have a dinner theater at times. Check the schedule on their website. We have always enjoyed eating there. Enjoy breakfasts and dinners there.

Dear Mr. Kenn B. thank you for your response to my TripAdvisor review of your restaurant. I went online to find the "list of locally-sourced items and the farms were they were raised can be found at our website" you mentioned, but didn't find it. There was one click through under the "Bird-in-Hand Family Restaurant & Smorgasbord" but an error message responded "nothing found for Index Php Places..." and "Sorry, the page you are looking for was not found. Please use the menu or search bar above to find what you are looking for. Thank you for visiting!" Could you please direct me to the list? Thank you. Lisa G.

Nestled amid the Amish farmlands of Lancaster County, this Mennonite family-owned business features farm fresh meats, poultry, fruits and vegetables from nearby farms and Grandma Smucker's favorite Pennsylvania Dutch recipes. Family-friendly with a Noah's Ark Kids' Buffet and breakfast, lunch and dinner smorgasbords, this local favorite has been a landmark for more than 40 years.
