I have had lunch or dinner each year here when I visit the area for the last 20 years. And have always enjoyed it. It is fun to eat here even for the kids. The buffet is really good!

Have been here twice and food is great. Complimentary dinner rolls with lunch are unbelievably delicious. This was off the menu dining. The family style meal is also excellent.

If you like Amish style cooking, you will absolutely love the Essenhaus. I love their broasted chicken, noodles, pot roast & just about everything on their buffet. We've had family style meals, buffet meals and menu order meals. They are all fabulous. But, the buffet...More

First I want to applaud their family and Christian values as they do not open on Sunday. Second, come hungry. You can choose to eat either family style or off the menu. Family style eating offers endless amounts of meats and sides. Menu dining gives...More

Great place to eat where it's "home made" from Amish recipes. I've eaten the buffet line and it's not as good as the family style. We've eaten there for years.
