I made reservations for lunch with my friend on 12/30. The restaurant at Shaker Village is called the Trustee’s Table. It is a lovely restaurant in the Shaker style with lots of natural light looking out towards the garden and livestock area. We both ordered the country ham and biscuits that came with a side of white gravy and French... More

We ate here because we were visiting the Shaker Village. They only had a buffet and the food was not very good. The desserts on the other hand were awesome, especially the lemon pie. Maybe the regular menu is better. It was nice to eat in the village and the service was great.

You can visit the gardens where much of the food is grown, then have a lovely meal prepared using authentic Shaker recipes. The food is simple and contains absolutely nothing artificial. Eating this food makes you feel like you are getting a well-deserved thank you for putting in a hard day's work~ it's almost like great big hug. You will... More

The food was good, and had fresh, or pickled vegetables from the garden. Some dishes are served "family style", but you must ask for seconds, since the servings come from the waitresses. The desserts are homemade, with the baked goods coming from original Shaker recipes.

The dining room was lovely. The lunch menu to me is better than the dinner. We had dinner this visit which was good but not outstanding . It is a must do to see the building.

Average food, over priced for what you get. Can get the same food at other less expensive restaurants that are equal or better.

My wife and I hadn't dined at Shaker village for awhile, so when an errand took us to the area, we decided to take advantage of the beautiful fall Saturday and have lunch there. The menu is simple but sufficient. She had the savory tart (broccoli cheese quiche, essentially) and I had the country ham biscuits. Both were excellent. The... More

Visited for lunch with my partner and my parents. We had a reservation and heard many folks turned away because they didn't. Lunch started with complimentary cole slaw and corn muffins. Cole slaw was good, but a little oniony for me. Two of us had the Smothered Country Ham Biscuits, served with shoestring fries, it was pretty tasty. Others had... More
