Willow Valley Resort looking for dinner nearby

Meg Loves to Eat May 14, 2010 07:05 AM

We're heading to Willow Valley this weekend, with a 2 and 7 year old. We plan to head out to a restaurant one night. Looking for a suggest for Saturday or Sunday night. Ethnic is fine, interesting is fine, chain restaurants are not.

Any suggestions for something close to the hotel?

    Are you willing to drive into Lancaster City? The only thing in Willow Valley not associated with the resort that I've heard about is Wasabi Japanese -- and I've heard VERY good things about their sushi. Lancaster City is really only about 10-15 minutes away depending on traffic, and has great options.

      When I look online, it shows the restaurant just minutes south of Willow Valley - not 10-15 minutes north in Lancaster City. It appears to be in a shopping center. Is that the right restaurant, and I agree, it sounds great!

        Yes, Wasabi is in Willow Valley, but not associated with the resort, and is in a shopping center. If you want other options though, the city is probably your best bet. In the city, my kids (7,9) enjoy Iron Hill Brewery, Rice and Beans (Dominican and Puerto Rican) and Rachel's Cafe and Creperie.

      Meg, whatever you do in the evening, be sure you stay right in the resort for Sunday brunch. They do it up right. Make reservations now.
