Six of us visited the last Saturday night in October. We had to wait to be seated. Am I cynical that they have a big shop next to the waiting area? We managed not to spend anything there, but only just. Lots of knick knack type things. Restaurant was absolutely exactly what we expected. We had the meal where you... More

Every year for about the last 10 we have celebrated Thanksgiving with our Family, and no one was ever disappointed. My wife and I also frequent plain & Fancy many times for lunch or dinner. Their ala cart menu is IMO better than the family style. If your ever in the area try it out.

They say you cannot go back. I seem to remember this place from years ago and it was either busier or better. What a shame that our fellow American Amish Bretheren are exploited to such an extent. Still the food was okay, just not a good as it could be. I seem to have a better cookbook than they do... More

We love the atmosphere but the food was just average and very overpriced. I'm glad we've been once but I don't think I would go again.

OMG, The food was out of this world. The fried chicken was to die for and the service was very good. I must say the only thing I was disappointed in was them not having sliced turkey & gravy. It would have made my comfort food meal complete. I hope to be there again in the near future and would... More

We went to P&F on New year's Eve 2016. When I called, I was told the restaurant was open until 8pm I was also told that they highly recommended reservations because they were booked until 8. I grabbed the 7:30 reservation and I was happy to get it. Our party of 7 was seated promptly but what we also noticed... More

We went with 6 other people and had a wonderful time at the dinner. The food was excellent and we had plenty of it, as soon as a dish was empty they filled it right up for us. A really nice experience.

We stayed next door at the Amish View Inn and Suites and came here a couple times during out stay. I enjoyed everything we had! Each time I ended up taking food home because I couldn't finish it all.

Went here with DH, since it was only the 2 of us we didn't do the family style and ordered a la carte. I thought the food was quite good although definitely not the place to go when on a diet! Fried chicken was very good as were the sides, although I felt everything was very buttery (but I like... More
