At White Horse Luncheonette, you can join with the local in having delicious comfort foods in a down-home environment. Many of the locals who eat here are Amish who walk to the diner for breakfast or lunch. Great food and reasonable prices...worth the drive into eastern Lancaster County.

With new ownership came new energy and a delightful new menu that has resurrected this longstanding local favorite. Breakfast lunch and dinner items are aplenty and the food and service is just perfect. Has the feel of dining in an old small town or in your grandmothers kitchen and that just makes it even better. Owner Rose has done such... More

We had good burgers and cherry crumb pie in this nice, local diner-style place. Service was friendly and good.

A young friend suggested we do breakfast there for our meeting and I was pleased with their generous servings and endless coffee.

This is a local luncheonette off the beaten track Tourists hardly ever eat here. They depend on local business and almost all the tables were taken. It is clean, staff cares and our simple food was well prepared. If you are traveling and need a place for a quick breakfast or lunch you should be satisfied at this local spot.... More

We always look for the local restaurants. This place just happened upon us. Definitely an old time luncheonette with lots of locals having lunch. Our food was good but the star of the restaurant is the ice cream drinks. Quite yummy making happy teens!

My husband and I had both breakfast and dinner at this establishment. Not only is it reasonably priced, but you are given a large portion for your money. While White Horse is a establishment visited by locals and is nothing fancy, the food is very good and satisfying. Be sure to sit near a window so you can watch the... More

Our B & B hostess recommended this local diner. We were so pleased and now when we return this will be our "go to" place. The food is delicious, the hostess was friendly. We ordered the double cheeseburger oh my how huge & delicious. They have so much to choose from, truly worth checking out! We highly recommend this local... More

If you want to go back in time to a quaint diner with nostalgic charm this is the place for you. We were told about this luncheonette from a local resident and traveled about 10 miles to check it out. The drive and it scenery was beautiful....quite picturesque with rolling farmlands that were perfectly manicured. The luncheonette was small and... More

After having eaten here several times, I have to say that I would never recommend going to the white horse luncheonette. The staff is very friendly, but the food is subpar and the prices are high for what you get. When you walk in, you seat yourself and the waitress/waiter will approach you.
