Bird-in-Hand Family Restaurant & Smorgasbord
We are temporarily closed due to a fire that damaged our kitchen and front lobby. We are committed to rebuilding and reopening safely. In the meantime, please visit our Bird-in-Hand Bakery & Cafe.
Come Hungry. Eat Hearty. Go Home Happy.
If you're craving home cooking and farm-fresh goodness, you're in the right place. Whether you feast from our all-you-can-eat smorgasbord, sample the offerings on our sumptuous soup-and-salad bar, or select something from our varied menu, you’re sure to be satisfied.
We make most of what we serve from scratch - soups, salad dressings, macaroni salad and coleslaw - right down to the tartar sauce, cocktail sauce and applesauce. We use only the freshest ingredients. In season, fruits and vegetables come from local Amish and Mennonite farms, and we use meat and poultry from Lancaster County producers. Try the mouthwatering burgers made from Angus beef raised on John Smucker’s farm.
Some of our most popular traditional Pennsylvania Dutch recipes date back to Grandma Smucker. National Geographic introduced her to the world in 1938, and the Smucker family still approves every recipe we use today. Great food has been a Smucker family tradition for generations. Join us for:
- Breakfast smorgasbord with a daily selection of hot entrees, fresh fruits, mouth-watering pastries and more
- Grand smorgasbord with an ever-changing selection of home-cooked, farm-fresh dishes and desserts
- Soup, salad and bread bar, featuring our homemade soups, fresh-baked breads, assorted cheeses and farm-fresh salads
- Dessert bar with homemade puddings and oatmeal pie, plus cakes, cookies and more from the Bird-in-Hand Bakery & Cafe
- Menu dining for those who prefer to order from our expansive breakfast, lunch or dinner menus
