A must stop if your visiting in Lancaster, PA area. Large selection of food, pleasant surroundings and friendly staff. When finished with your meal, visit the gift shop downstairs, market and hardware stores access the street. Make it a day trip

Visiting in PA and Shady Maple Smorgasbord was a recommended place to eat. We were not disappointed. The quality of the food was very good at a fair price. If you like buffets, this is a great place to visit.

I've been to Shady Maple countless times and could write a lengthy review about this place, not to mention becoming very hungry as I type. I go with my family multiple times a year. The trip is so worth the hour and a half drive....More

If you've ever been to the Amish Country, PA, you're familiar with smorgasboards. They have lots of yummy food. Shady Maple is no exception, but, it is so much larger than all the others. I can't imagine there'd ever be a wait. Hard to describe...More

I have had lunch and dinner and both were great. The lunch is less expensive so if you are on a budget, lunch may be better. I had a late lunch and was full for the rest of the day.
