Central Family Restaurant is an outstanding place to stop for great home cooked favorites. The food is delicious. The staff is friendly. If you're looking for a really nice, almost diner feel restaurant, Central Family is it.

The Central Family Restaurant is cozy and family oriented. I love the photographs of Old York on the walls. The service is friendly, and the food is warm and tasty. I highly recommend it.

I don't go out for breakfast often but I can only recommend one place in York and that's this place. The food is why I go because its the best in town for the $$$ and the service and local feel is other reason.

My family went here two mornings in a row for breakfast. The service was impeccable, and the meals (eggs benedict, steak benedict, children's pancakes and sausage) were incredible. I would recommend it and go back whenever I am in the area.
