“Yum”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Comfort food just like it used to be. Gourmet it's not. There's nothing fancy here. Just plain good old fashioned food and plenty of it. This is food prepared in the tradition of fueling hard labor on the farm or shop --- sun up to sun down. Great desserts too. I would weigh 350 lbs. it I ate here on a regular basis ..... but to stop by on a trip..... it's a treat not to be missed.

And don't just eat. When we are here we pick up a package of locally ground buckwheat for making pancakes at home. But there are lots of options to take home food just like grandma used to make.

When you are finished with your meal, go over to the "Yoder House" to see how life was lived 200 years ago when the National Road (the first Federal Interstate Highway) came thru here. The bridge over the Casselman River was built in 1813. And then stop by the Spruce Forest Artisan Village to see highly skilled contemporary craftsmen (craftspeople?) and their work. If you just want a quick meal find a chain burger place. If you want an experience you will remember hang out a while in Grantsville after a meal at the Penn Alps.

“Fathers Day Buffett”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

All the food was hot, fried chicken was very good as well as the noodles. Servers could be more attentive to diners. Nice little buffett, average home cooking. Nothing to write home about.

“horrible”
Reviewed 13 March 2014 via mobile

Me and my father stopped by one day after one of my chemo treatments in Morgantown. His parents and him use to go alkyl the time when he was younger so we decided to try it out again. That was the first and last time I will ever go there. The hostess took forever to seat us and forever to get our drink order. Even longer to take our food order. The entire team at the restaurant was very rude and snobbish with us. I believe that every customer should be treated the same. We were paying customers and should of been treated just like all the others. The price that you pay for the food is horrible because the quality of foods is horrible. Like I said I will never go back again.
