About Us


Animal Exhibit

We love animals here at The Pretzel Hut.  The animals love attention and located in Lancaster County you have a quaint petting zoo.  You may have the opportunity to even feed some of the animals.  


History & Decor

Nestled at the edge of the towering woods just north of Brickerville, The Pretzel Hut dates back nearly half a century. Long ago, it was the place to stop for fresh, soft pretzels. Pretzels are still served, but the name exists as a tribute to the past customers.  The inside of the restaurant has a charming Coca Cola decor and seats about 45. Outside are picnic tables and children's play area, complete with an ever-changing live animal exhibit!  If you want a little more adventure and exercise you can access the horseshoe trail and hike for miles. Call for weekly specials, and ice cream flavors, we look forward to meeting new friends and enjoy seeing our weekly regulars. 

-See you soon!


Menu Style

Now serving much more than pretzels, we offer a full menu of sandwiches, fresh burgers, bison burgers, cheesesteaks, salads, quesadillas, stromboli, loaded baked potatoes, broasted chicken and dinner entrees. And don't forget the best soft serve ice cream around! We have four soft-serve flavors, vanilla & chocolate are always available, and the others vary based upon requests and the season. Peanut Butter is our  Number 1 request. We also have many hand-dipped ice cream flavors to choose from including frozen yogurt.
