We have other places to recommend. If an area restaurant is here, we have tested it numerous times and endorse it because of it consistently meets expectations, and our guests have reported back to us favorable comments. We always meter our guests' reviews of restaurants they visit to monitor consistency. When a restaurant falls short of our guests' expectations, we remove it. There are other area favorites we can suggest as well, but do not have room for on this page. These are highly rated and range from Vietnamese to Mexican to new fusions and of course, Pennsylvania Dutch. There are country restaurants and city dining in Harrisburg and Lancaster. We will make our recommendations for you based upon your choice of cuisine and atmosphere.

"Words cannot express our feelings to the both of you, from making the booking on the 'net' to walking through your front door. You made us feel like "old friends." The purpose of our visit was somewhat unique but you made us feel at 'home' and opened up your beautiful home to our son and his friends and even gave them breakfast! You are amazing and we appreciate all you did for us more than you know! We will be back!"
