The buffet is a good way to try many different foods. Can't beat the fried chicen and the cinimmon pudding cake is so good with a little bit of Ice cream on top.

Have stopped here a few times while in Amish country. Many employees are Amish and the food is excellent. Lunch buffet is $9. and has 2 meats, several veg and a salad and dessert buffet. Everything is homemade. You can also order from the menu which is good value also. Very clean including the bathrooms. Friendly staff and served quickly.... More

We stopped in for lunch on a Friday. The parking lot was full and it was busy but we didn't have to wait long. I ordered a broasted chicken breast and the fried green beans. The chicken was dry. The green beans were over fried and didn't have any sauce to dip them into. (most places offer one) My husband... More

Amazing home cooked food in the heart of Amish country. Had the breakfast buffet and it was fantastic. Thick smoked bacon, homemade sausage patties, incredible homemade biscuits with sausage gravy. A definite gem. Halfway between Arthur and Arcola on Rt 133 in Chesterville. Don't forget to hit the meat and cheese market around the corner.

Very good home cooking, we stop here every time we drive through boring i-39! Food us always good, and the staff is very nice. Lunch buffet is all homemade items, you can't go wrong!

This place is incredibly popular for noontime lunch! And again... I don't get it. Pretty typical local food. Must have a salad bar. Has a very limited buffet that must include fried chicken and sliced bread. Oh.. and soft serve ice cream seems to be a requirement for anyone with any sort of Amish roots! Good food. Horrible place to... More

They serve only breakfast and lunch, opens between 6 am and 2 pm. Tasty meals and great pies! Loved the apple upside down pie! Amish cooks and bakers. Clean and tidy.
