Lancaster Buffets

Here is a list of the smorgasbords, buffets and salad bars in the Lancaster area. Since there are so many good smorgasbords serving traditional Amish cooking in the area I thought I’d compile my experiences.

I’ve listed the pertinent information that I have for each but please know that hours, prices and menus can change and it’s always best to call and confirm these things. The items I’ve listed as typical for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert are not always available and will vary on certain days. I’ve listed them only to give you a good idea of the type of cuisine and what you may possibly find there.

If you have better or further information feel free to contact me (you can leave a message in the comments). I would also love to hear your personal experiences at any of the locations, especially the ones I have not been to.
