Part Eatery. Part History Lesson. In 1929, Anna Miller served Chicken & Waffles to truckers as her husband repaired their rigs. She served good food, in a kindly manner. And for 83 years, we’ve strived to do the same. When you enter our restaurant, you’ll step back in time and surround yourself with imagery from the Miller’s and Lancaster County archives. If you miss Miller's, you miss Lancaster County. Buy local. Cook from scratch. There are 235,000 chain restaurants in the U.S. Many order supplies from their headquarters and prepare meals that are nice and predictable. At Miller's, we cook from scratch, and prepare meals that you tell your friends about. We're PA Preferred, AAA Recommended, Reader's Choice and ServSafe Award Winners. Each member of your party has three dining options to choose from, including our Traditional Smorgasbord Dinner, Soup & Salad Smorgasbord, and our Ala Carte Menu, starting at only $7.99. We serve wine, beer, spirits and cocktails.

Love the birthday club. Food and service are great, a little pricey but the crowd proves it is not too bad. They are almost always really busy.

Disappointed this time. Food was cold and not the quality I expected. Many of the food choices needed to be filled, had to wait .

Miller’s has generally been our “go-to” place for lunch before attending an American Music Theatre matinee. (It’s just a 5-min. drive to the theater.) We’ve always had pleasant waitstaff, good homemade Pa Dutch food, . . . and, if you’re lucky enough to get a table in the room with the wall of windows, you have a good view of a typical countryside farm field, including horses. Note: Miller’s smorgasbord prices appear to have increased which now exceed the cost per person of the well-known mega “all-you-can-eat” restaurant down the road in East Earl. Perhaps this cost increase is due to the restaurant’s location, its possession of a liquor license, and the fact that it’s open every day of the week (including Sundays).

I always enjoy coming here. This visit was way below my expectations. Server was a little rude and not attentive. We travel about 2.5 hours to eat here.

I have eaten at Miller's several times in the past and was always pleased, and that is why I choice to eat there again this past Thursday with another couple, and this time it was a totally different experience.
The assortment of food no longer warrants the price of admission.
Unfortunately we will not return.

Miller's restaurant is quite busy with guests and employees alike. They have a wide variety of food selections. If you don't, like one item, you turn around because they're are literally 10 others you may try. Food is plentiful, the place is clean.

Another wonderful meal at Miller's. Our server, Stephanie, was great! The food as always was great. Only recommendation that I would make is to make sure that anything with nuts in it should be labeled - I had some of the turkey salad on the buffet that had almonds in it which caused a minor allergic reaction.

The only negative was that even though there was not an abundance of people, we were seated at a table located very close to 2 other tables in use, and it was a little tight getting in and out to go to the buffet. I could understand if there were many people to he seated, but that was not the case.

We enjoyed our time @ Miller's very glad we reserved 530 pm as it surely got very crowded. Infact our seating area room was completely filled @ every table.
Server, Deb was excellent and made us feel welcomed
Deb did a fantastic job of clearing away our empty plates from table right away and this was helpful to have extra room for other plates, soup bowls ➕ glasses of water.
She took care of getting our drink orders and never had us feeling rushed.

Miller's compares favorably to it's competition. During our recent visit the food was well prepared, tasty, and abundant. We opted for the smorgasbord option and were able to sample most of the fare. Service was excellent. We also really appreciated that we could make a reservation for two ahead of time.

But I would warn them the price is pretty steep. I know of two in my party that do not eat much at all. It may have been better for them to order from the menu.

Good food. Friendly service. Reasonable prices. We've been visiting so long, they treat us like family; but they treat all their guests that way. It's absolutely worth a visit.

The description of the smorgasbord stated that it was various Pennsylvania Dutch dishes......NOT. This is nothing special to Pennsylvania Dutch and just like any other buffet. I was VERY disappointed at the food selection.........especially after we got the bill, it's like $30+ per person!!!! All of the dishes needed seasoning and some thing were cold. I personally will never go there again.

Our waitress was not friendly or attentive to our needs. She was not timely with clearing dishes or with beverage refills .Cold shrimp tasted like ammonia, bar- be- que Turkey was inedible. Soups were good.

We've been going to Miller's for years; however it's been less frequent recently, for good reason. This will be our last visit for a long while. The quality of the food has been steadily going downhill, and the prices keep escalating. Even the normally reliable soups were unacceptable this time, being lukewarm and flavorless. The "hot apple pie" was anything but that. Meatloaf was a casserole rather than a loaf to be cut into slices; and that was gone and not replaced when my wife went to get a spoonful. The roast beef was dry and chewy. The fried chicken was cold and undercooked. At least the French fries and bread & butter pickles were as good as ever. The noise level was incredible, mostly due to loud talking from large groups seated nearby. We were barely able to have a conversation at our table. Dishes piled up on our table waiting for pick-up, since the waitress only showed up a total of 4 times from seating to check delivery.

Good restaurant choice for home cooked food! I highly recommend the chicken and waffles meal! Soooo good!! I could stuff myself on that platter alone! Ha! Ha! Nice view of the countryside from the windows by the tables. Service is friendly and quick. The price is decent for the amount of food they offer on their buffet. A nice place for friends, couples and families.
