Friendly people awaits you at Stoltzfus Farm Restaurant, the actual country farmhouse that Amos Stoltzfus, the own, was raised in. The all-Amish staff is shuttled by van each day from Lancaster, Pennsylvania. They bring with them an infusion of unadulterated country cooking and fresh, wholesome presentation.
The Farm seats about 100 people at red vinyl booths, tightly arranged tables and a full-service counter. The restaurant’s walls are brightened with hand-painted murals depicting rolling countryside and farmland scenes throughout the seasons. These lovely paintings aside, the dining room is unadorned.
Your server’s name is displayed on a placard next to the salt and pepper at each table. The handwritten menu features a variety of breakfast and lunch items. If you want more, just tell them and it keeps coming as long as you can breathe. Check out their web site for a listing of the foods available.

Favorite Dish: What I liked was that it was like going to Grandma's house and having her constantly asking you if you want more. Plus the desserts are to die for.

We came here for some post Intercourse adventure drinks and snacks. Was quite the fun and funny time. Many of the pics come from this part of the day. Just make sure your car has enough to drink too or you might not be able to get it to leave.
Tania was especially happy to see they have Cider here as she was only a couple months after discovering it in Ireland.
This place was a set meal. Little of everything. And although the food wasnt the finest it was a great place to meet to start this adventure.
Favorite Dish: I didnt eat much. We met for lunch an hour after i had breakfast somewhere else. And the food to me wasnt the greatest. But I did take some and try it just to make sure I wasn't going to miss out on something special.
This restaurant tip appears on my Lancaster page in a more serious review style, but . . .
This is where the magic started! Julie (travelmad478), Katey (PA2AKgirl), Joe (Easty), francanfly (Frank), Leena and I were among the first to arrive. In due time, (what were those two doing on their way to Intercourse??), cjg1 (Chris) and skye820 (Tania) arrived and we all began to chow on good Amish grub.
There was a brief moment in which I thought someone was going to beat up the waiter . . .
someone: "Do you have any other dressing other than bacon dressing?"
waiter: "No, only the bacon dressing."
someone: "You don't have Italian or Ranch or anything?" (a look a disbelief crossed someone's face)
waiter: "No, just bacon dressing. It's a traditional Amish thing."
someone: (rolling of eyes, clenching of the jaw, tightening of the fists)
It was a close call, but the spirit of group love was too much, and violence was fortunately averted.

NICE RESTAURANT, good menu, great food, nice wait staff. We would go back again when in the area.
There were Amish folks eating here when we were. When you see the Amish eating at a particular restaurant, you know its a good place.
By the way, The restaurant is so close to the line between Intercourse and Bird-in-Hand, I'm not entirely sure which town it is really in, so I have placed this page under both towns.

Just a little pretzel stand, and I bought the last one of the day. Trust me, I would have purchased more if they had them......
They don't romanticize grass and lawns out in agricultural country. I like the quality of the asphalt in Lancaster county. Top quality craftsmanship, no really, right up to the barn door.
