Area Dining


local restaurants

Lancaster County has dining options to suit every appetite, from family-style Pennsylvania Dutch cooking to fine dining and international cuisine. Just down the road along Route 230 (heading toward Mount Joy) you’ll find numerous fast food chains and quick service options for sandwiches or pizza. If you have a little more time, you might try one of the many unique cafes, full-service restaurants and pubs along that route.

A short drive east on Route 283 will take you to Lancaster City, where you’ll find dining options to accommodate any taste and budget. Manheim and Lititz are also just a short drive from The Nook, and offer many quaint shops and eateries that are worth visiting. For suggestions, just talk to our friendly staff at the Information Center.
