We have come here a few times and like it because all the things of the school are in this old schoolhouse from years back. the blackboards are still on the walls, wainscoting, old books, etc. They mid early afternoonson weekdays and on Friday nights they are open for business. The food is reasonable and good.

Thought this looked like a neat place to try for lunch, on our way to Gettysburg. Place was pretty dead, except for a couple guys at the counter, and 2 older gentlemen at another table. At least 3 waitresses, plus cooks....still, took awhile for the waitress to take our order, and was pretty cold and unfriendly to us.....She stared like... More

I went here with family one morning after church and had the worst experience. Going in the place was dirty and the table was filthy. All I wanted was an omelet with potatoes and toast. They refused to make my potatoes without onions and told me "We don't do it for anyone else why would we do it for you"... More

Very sorry to hear about your experience. Sundays are very busy and we urge people to wait for a table to be cleaned off and sanitized before sitting down, we are very sorry that we didn't do that for you. All of our potatoes are cooked in specific pans with onions already in them, we hold the same traditions as... More

These folks do Scrapple RIGHT! And they have breakfast specials which you can get for $2.22 on certain days. They also serve lunch specials but no dinner. We are regulars for breakfast....not a lot of tables though.

I live locally and visit the Little Red Schoolhouse regularly. It never disappoints. The food is excellent, service is great and speedy and the prices are so low they are almost embarrassing! I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Have been to this small restaurant near Brushtown several times. They specialize in breakfast but also serve lunch. Unfortunately, after a change of ownership, their quality is not as good and neither is the service. I had cherry pancakes which were dry. The bacon and eggs were also so-so. Worst of all was the service since the waitstaff seemed to... More

Standard breakfast fare, including build your own omelette. Extremely reasonable prices and delicious food in a neat one room schoolhouse!

Had breakfast.....typical York County PA menu. Nothing out of the ordinary. Ordered the cheese omelet with bacon and the potatoes. Omelet was ok, potatoes were cold. Coffee was not the best. My husband had the grits and ham. He is from the South and said the ham should have been soaked a bit as it was very salty.....and he likes... More
