Lancaster County’s diverse community of restaurants, cafés, bakeries, markets and other eateries has gained nationwide acclaim and with it, a reputation as being a foodie destination. That reputation continues to draw esteemed chefs from far and wide to the area, each adding his or her own contribution to the rich, unparalleled dining culture in Lancaster County. Many families have established roots here through their restaurants, bringing diverse flavors that echo their own traditions and cultures, representing cuisines as far away as South America and Asia and as close to home as our cherished Pennsylvania Dutch heritage.

As we begin

to return to normalcy after a year that severely wounded the hospitality industry, there is no time like the present to explore the bounty of delicious cuisine and delightful experiences curated by Lancaster’s many chefs, entrepreneurs, bakers, farmers and families. Whether you are looking for a quick bite at a charming café, authentic cuisine from around the globe or an upscale chef’s table experience, Lancaster County has whatever kind of dining experience you crave.

FOOD FIT FOR A PRESIDENT One of Lancaster County’s most notable chefs is former White House chef John Moeller, who owns and operates The Greenfield Restaurant & Bar with his wife, Suryati, and their son, Zach, who is the restaurant’s general manager. After growing up in Lancaster County, John graduated from Johnson & Wales University in Rhode Island and moved to France,

where he studied the fundamentals of French cuisine under some of the country’s finest chefs, including 3-star Michelin chef Bernard Loiseau. Upon returning to the United States, John settled in Washington, D.C., where networking led to a position at the White House. He served three first families from 1992 until 2005. During his tenure, John helped create and prepare meals for not only the first families, but also for such world leaders as Tony Blair and Nelson Mandela, as well as famous guests such as Julia Child and Sophia Loren. John loves to recount stories from his time at the White House and his many other culinary adventures. In 2013, he published a book, Dining at the White House: From the President’s Table to Yours, in which he narrates his favorite memories from his tenure and shares the recipes he prepared for the first families. (Copies are available for purchase at The Greenfield.)

Star Power A TASTE OF LANCASTER IN D.C. During his time at the White House, John would occasionally source produce from Lancaster County, mainly corn and peaches in the summertime. Laura Bush relished Lancaster County’s peaches. He would also pick up Hammond’s Pretzels during trips to visit his family in Lancaster County. They were a common snack at the White House, starting with the Clinton administration. In 2002, while former President George W. Bush was snacking and watching football, he choked on a Hammond’s Pretzel and briefly lost consciousness. In a 2014 interview with The Washington Post, John remembers his first thought upon hearing the news: “Am I going to be working here tomorrow?” Thankfully, the former president was fine, despite a minor injury on his face, and John kept his job. According to John, George H. W. Bush was a fan of the Lancaster area. Once, after returning from a campaign trip to the area, John said to the former president, “Hey, you were in my neck of the woods.” “No way, you’re from Lancaster? I love that place!” Bush 41 replied.

Beautiful Views

Along the banks of the Susquehanna River in Wrightsville, John Wright Restaurant provides guests with an unparalleled waterfront view.

Today, the restaurant is the perfect setting for an intimate date night, special occasion or just

getting lost in the view. The restaurant’s menu focuses on casual farm-to-table American cuisine. All of the products used by John Wright – from meat and dairy to produce – are farm fresh, local and nonGMO. The restaurant offers a Sunday brunch buffet as well as lunch, dinner and kid’s menus. The 400-seat Pizza Patio, open during warmer months, has its own menu that features salads, burgers, sandwiches, kabobs and an array of 10inch wood-fired pizzas. Continuing the local emphasis, eight taps feature a rotating selection of Pennsylvania craft beer. Spirits are also from local distillers including Thistle Finch Distillery (Lancaster) and Stoll & Wolfe Distillery (Lititz). Finca de Torres (from El Serrano) and Allegro Winery (Brogue) are included in the wine selections. 234 North Front Street, Wrightsville. 717-252-0416 or jwrpa.com. Reservations are recommended.

Rockwell’s also features an atrium that acts as a four-season room. The covered area has large roller doors that can be opened during warm weather to extend outdoor seating. Their casual menu includes wings, salads, sandwiches, burgers, steaks, fajitas, stir fry and more. Rhino Fries, which are a mountain of homestyle fries smothered in melted cheese and bacon, are a signature item. At the bar, choose from 20 beers on tap or treat yourself to a freshsqueezed, tropical cocktail. 800 Mount Gretna Road, Elizabethtown. 717-367-5544 or tjrockwells.com. Loxley’s is a favorite destination for alfresco dining. The restaurant, which is located at the Heritage Hotel in Centerville, offers guests a unique dining setting that has the appearance of a large, open treehouse. The vibe is Sherwood Forest. To call it a deck or a patio just doesn’t do the two-story structure justice. A tree grows in the center of the courtyard and extends upward into the second story. If you’d rather sit inside, there are plenty of other seating options including an indoor/outdoor bar and several dining rooms. Loxley’s offers lunch, dinner and Sunday brunch. Nearly all of their food is made from scratch using as many seasonal, locally sourced ingredients as possible. Their wide-ranging dinner menu offers items such as steaks, flatbreads, seafood, pasta, sandwiches and burgers.

Built in 1823, the Railroad House Inn was once a hotel for canal workers because of its location along the Susquehanna River. Over the years, it has transformed from a hotel to a residence, psychedelic coffee house and even a disco. Almost 200 years later, the Railroad House Inn focuses on seasonal cuisine that supports local farms and suppliers. After recently undergoing renovations, the Railroad House Inn’s patio provides a beautiful setting for a delicious meal. Café tables, patio heaters and strings of lights create a charming and cozy atmosphere for up to 50 guests.

Guests can dine on more pub-friendly cuisine in

the Perry Street Cellar, located in the lower level of the building.

Scratch Bakes offers basic flavors of cupcakes, as well as rotating specialty flavors, such as Key lime pie, bananas Foster and strawberry shortcake. While all the flavors are delicious, their top sellers are Salted Caramel and Peanut Butter Lover. Other baked goods include brownies, cookies and muffins.
