When you visit Amish Acres for the 1st time, part of the experience is enjoying a meal in their restaurant barn.
The menu at the Amish Acres Restaurant has not changed for nearly five decades which tells you that generations of families have been coming to enjoy this family style meal together. Another great thing about their family style dinner is that you are encouraged to ask for seconds if you really like it.
The inside of the barn is beautiful with lots of seating.
For starters we had a basket of freshly baked hearth bread served with churned butter, apple butter, sweet & sour cabbage slaw, and “Last of the Garden Relish.”
I could seriously eat bread with homemade Apple Butter all day long. It is so wonderful!
Next we were served from an Iron Kettle with Thick Ham and Bean Soup.
My younger son loved it so much that he requested another bowl after the main course.
For the main course you can choose two meat selections per table (Broasted Country Chicken, Honey-Baked & Hickory-Smoked Ham, Festive Roast Turkey, Tender Roast Beef)
We opted for the broasted country chicken and the tender roast beef.
The sides that came with dinner were beef & egg noodles, green beans, mashed potatoes & giblet gravy, sage dressing,
Make sure that you pace yourself because there is so much food to eat and you will want to leave some room for dessert! Trust me.
For dessert you will probably need a few moments to take in all of the amazing options that are presented in front of you. I suggest the strategy of having everyone get something different so that you can try a bite of each others.
Yes, we sampled each others and yes it was amazing!
