“Great fried chicken...side of cough drops please”
Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

First, I can't complain about the food as many here have...the fried chicken and the stewed tomatoes were great...the other stuff? I don't know. I thought "family style dining" meant dining with my own family...but it really meant dining with the family/families sitting at the 12 person table with you..if you're squeamish about other people's germs, STAY AWAY! Our experience was rather horrible since the family we shared dinner with was kind enough to elect their 13 year old cough monster as liaison between the families. It's not the restaurant's fault that the kid and gramma and little sis were sick but it's their fault that's its setup that way. Needless to say whatever was originally set and passed from the hacking half at the table wasn't eaten or tried by my self, my pregnant wife, nor my 1 year old son...$44 down the drain...hey, at least we get to have pizza tonight...

“Great Food in a Family atmosphere!”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

I have visited many Amish style restaurants and Good and Plenty is among the best! My husband and I have eaten at many restaurants in Lancaster County and eating family style, with folks from all over the world, is one of the best aspects of eating at Good and Plenty. Thanksgiving Dinner was so much fun, that we returned the next year. The food is served "family style" with as much as you want to eat. You simply ask the waitstaff for another platter and it is brought to the table. This is typical Amish style food, heavy and starchy. That is not to say it is boring. It is delicious. It may be a bit pricey for a family, but there is also an "order off the menu" area where you don't get as much food, nor do you pay as much. I highly recommend Good and Plenty Restaurant.

“Good and Plenty has the best fried chicken and buttered noodles in town! Always busy, always good! Enjoy!”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

The food is very good. They seat you at long tables for 12 people. You may sit with people you don't know. We find that enjoyable.
