In 1969, Christ and Dolly Lapp purchased a farmhouse to realize their dream of owning a restaurant. The couple’s goal was to serve fresh, homestyle PA Dutch meals to their friends and neighbors. We continue that tradition today by offering traditional PA Dutch food made from fresh ingredients that’s served with a smile and prices that are family-friendly.

Why Choose Us
Lancaster has many great sit-down restaurant, buffet, and smorgasbord choices. So why do folks choose to visit us? You can read our Google reviews, but we’ll summarize a few reasons here:
Fresh, homestyle cooking (the fried chicken is a guest favorite!)
After dinner, head outside to visit our petting zoo, next to the parking lot. The kids will love visiting and feeding the goats, sheep, and cows in the petting zoo. There are vending machines with animal feed available. We also have a playground area with swings and a slide if the kids need to work off some energy!
