Ordered 2 Pc Fried Chicken, Mash potatoes, with gravy, Green beans. Wife ordered Chicken pot Pie! Chicken dinner came out first. Served on a small metal tray, with brown paper covering the tray. Presentation is a turn off to the meal! The mash potatoes were let say a "firm scoop from an ice cream scoop"! Gravy was served on the side in a small plastic cup? Green beans had no flavor at all. I think they were from a can and served as was? Chicken pot pie arrived, I turned out to be a Flat looking Croissant roll, with what one would expect inside a pot pie except pour over the top, Looked more like something you would be serve in a school cafeteria. and it was not hot!! It was sent back, wife ordered a hamburger and fries. Not what came for but had to get something else quick so we could go! Will say Hamburger and Fries were good ! Just not what we drove 45 minutes to eat this day. Might go back some day?

The various foods offered here are wonderful. In addition to very fresh produce, the offerings extend to homemade pies (yummy), assorted other bake goods, and some very unique items of the edible realm. Shopping here is a fun experience.

Good food and atmosphere. We ordered the family style chicken. The chicken was good but the entire meal was not as hot as it should have been. The flavor was good. The outstanding part of the meal was the rolls served with apple butter. They were outstanding.

We each ordered the 4 piece chicken dinner and a side salad. We were served the dinner within 5 minutes of placing the order and before the salad was served. We each received 4 very small pieces of chicken and the chicken was barely warm. We sent one meal back because the chicken was room temperature. . We also cancelled the salad order. The table next to us ordered the two piece dinner and they each received two large pieces of chicken. Our Chicken dinner tasted just OK if you like barely warm and very small pieces of chicken. And this place isn’t cheap. We won’t be back. Very disappointed!

We ordered the chicken dinner for two adults and the chicken tenders for a child. The tenders were so overcooked that they were almost impossible to eat. The chicken dinners were OK but very greasy and lacked flavor. This used to be a great place to eat but has certainly gone down hill. Meals here aren’t cheap and are sure overpriced for what you get.

Please save yourself a horrible experience and eat anywhere else! Such a horrible and unprofessional experience. Dinner took over two hours, our server never brought silverware and just disappeared on us. We had to ask other servers for condiments and napkins, and we had to go ask for someone to find our server for refills. Our server never followed up and we never saw her. Then after asking for our check, it took 20 minutes to get the check while our server focused on other tables. This deserved no tip, to which our server came out to the parking lot and yelled profanity at us for not leaving a tip. Not the experience I would recommend to anyone.

Patio closed ! We went online to reserve our seats for dinner outside at 530 pm. We got confirmation and follow up text to make sure we were able to make it. Arrived early to go thru the store. Arrived at our designated time only to find out that they didn’t know about our reservation. When we asked why they couldn’t answer it. Jean said they didn’t have enough customers to keep the patio open. She offered to make our food in to go plates and we could sit on the patio or sit inside. We have been eating to go food for four months. We’re just not comfortable with indoor seating because of the corona virus and after traveling 50 minutes to find out that the patio was closed. Left and drove 50 minutes home without dinner. A call to us that patio was closed would have been nice, oh no one had looked at reservations. Very poor management.

This was a total disaster. The server was on us as soon as we sat down. We had been seated less than 30 seconds when our server came at us with " are you ready to order " dang we didn't even get a chance to look the menu over. When we said not yet, She then followed with, and I'll quote" I'll give you one minute ". And she meant it. She was back in one minute. We both felt pressured to order. My wife ordered the pork sandwich and I asked for the fried chicken sandwich. Our food came out pretty quick. Both of our orders of fries were COLD, my wife's pork sandwich was COLD, my chicken sandwich was hard and COLD. the server offered to ( and get this) to get new orders and it would be fresh... really? Now we can have hot " fresh" food. Maybe this is how it should have been from the beginning. With this we told her no. We both lost our appetite and had no desire to wait for "fresh food". She tried a couple of times to talk us into what she wanted us to do. Again... a big no from us. She then showed her character with " then were done here, your free to go, and you owe nothing". Thanks... I guess. We've come here for years. Never, ever again. Menu is small and way over priced. Nothing special about this place anymore.

Have never went there but will sometime as we live a long way from there. trip insists I have been there, but guess it is ok. I think they have jams and other ho-made stuff, pies cakes etc. Prob. good. Amish people are forbidden by the state from selling pies, as they bake in their own kitchens, and this place has commercial i think. will go tyr it sometime. Again i have to comply to the best of my knoledge according to below. have to mark a time so will mark oldest place to satisify review???

I brought my son’s family this weekend to the Belleville Farm because, mainly, I wanted my grandchildren to see the sunflower maze that was advertised. So, I bought the tickets to the picking area, thinking that the maze was a part of that. Of course, it wasn’t, so I bought tickets to the “maze” at a rather high price, I thought. The kids were so disappointed that there was no maze this year and the mud was so deep they couldn’t walk out in the flowers without getting bogged down. And imagine my surprise when I was told that a sunflower would be an additional dollar – not that I wanted one, because I believe the flowers belong in the field and they quickly wilt in the heat anyway. I suppose we may return to pick some apples later, but maybe not. Over all, I have been very disappointed in the farm.

Very disappointed on Eckert's baked goods. They taste worse than store bought baked goods. Can't imagine that they are made fresh or even made local. I bought their German chocolate cake last night and was very disappointed. No flavor, poor taste and I threw most of it away.... Couldn't even finish the first slice. Never again!

Went around 5 pm Sunday evening.. Could not get anyone to get us a table. Was told to sit and wait (rudely). After 5 mins, I asked a waitress walking by and again was greeted rudely with a 'what'?! Not the first time this has happened but will be the last. Eckerts its self is over priced anyway.Will NOT return even though we live only a few mins away. Was a much better place before it turned into a 'tourist rap'

Great venue but don’t come hungry! Tried the Cider shed for the first time to listen to the live music. Thought we would have something to eat while we were there, and we were extremely disappointed. It’s a very limited menu, so I tied the brisket nachos. I can only say do not waste your time or money on these. There might have 2 ounces of brisket on them, but plenty of Cole slaw. The staff was not at all friendly, nor helpful. Never having been there we asked a food related question, and they seemed bothered by our asking how big the salads were! Overall my first and last visit! Overpriced and underwhelming!

We went to get some strawberries and had lunch while we were there. The berries, while a bit high, were great. The food was good also, but cold when it reached us. I think it’s the metal tray that the food is on instead of a plate. I definitely will send it back the next time.

Cold food and no service. Not what we expected. Asked for food to be heated. Waitress was gone 15 minutes and came back with cold food. Then we never saw her again until we asked another server for our bill. There were only 3 other tables.Please needs management to pay attention.
