Our family of 4 each had the soup, salad and baked potato bar. It was delicious and at a great price of $9.99. Our server, Ashley, was just great...so friendly and kept our drinks filled. This is an ideal location to have dinner before visiting the Sight and Sound theater, it's right next door.

The hostess was very accomodating, quickly finding us a table amdist a large crowd, cheerfully greeted us and handed us off to her assistant to show us to the table. The waiter was great, making sure we had everything we needed in terms of drinks, informing us on the choices at the buffet, and carried on with some chit chat about our dogs and family. None of the food was outstanding, rather was between good (pork loin at the grill, ham balls, and salad bar) to mediocre (steamed shrimp, sauerkraut and pork, chefs choice was steak and stew vegeys) to ok (fried chicken, potatoes, pasta, and green beans) to not so good (corn was what you'd get frozen from the store, the sweet potatoes were simply dumped out of the can, and one of the cakes was overly caky). The food lacked the Pennsylvania Dutch or Amish style that you would get at other local restaurants, having only chow chow (seemed to be from the can), coleslaw and buttered noodles (which were penne, and not the home made variety you get at other local Lancaster eateries). We missed the special corn they area is famous for. The desserts didn't appear to be homemade and had the appearance of being left out for quite a while. Bread station was stocked with rolls and bread (there was a wheat roll) and they didn't seem freshly baked, the butters were a little messy. and the signs saying what they were, were not close enough to the choice causing me to mistake the garlic butter for regular butter. Again the waiter was great, at the end he gave us coupons to use to take $2 off each of our meals.

loved hershey farms. we had a great breakfast, loads of food to pick from.Never had baked french toast, or baked oatmeal which is basically cooked with brown sugar and cinnamon.You can have omlets made to order, waffles and they even have nice deserts.They are very friendly and the place looks really nice.Afterwards you can shop in their gift shops, and we even got pumpkins of any size for a dollar cause it was past halloween.I would come back again

Stopped in for a quick breakfast. Odd thing was they wanted to know if I was staying at their hotel, and then wanted to know if I was a county resident (guess they have different prices?). Bottom line off the street tourist price for breakfast buffett, drink, tax about $15. Very good choice of breakfast foods, however I am not one that can eat plate after plate so for $15 it was pricey but allowed me to choose all kinds of small things. Probably will not stop back here if in the area as I know I can do better. Gift shop full of touristy stuff, did not get anything from there.

We stopped in just to visit the gift shop and bakery. There was a small outdoor market, a gift shop and a small bakery.
