The food is always delicious and worth the trip to eat there. We made reservations as there was 8 in our party, but we did not need them. The staff is very friendly and willing to help in any way they can.

Interesting drive to the restaurant, saw several horse & buggy travelling on the side of the road. The restaurant is a large one story, which includes a gift shop and small bakery. Try the "sticky buns" topped with pecans, for $7.75 it's great. We were there for breakfast on a Wednesday (buffet is only on Friday & Saturday, restaurant closed... More

We don't visit here often but it's definately a favorite place. Great green salad bar with anything you might want on it. Puddings, fruit salads, coleslaw. They have 2-3 different soups. The most amazing fried chicken. The dessert bar features good gooey cobblers and 3 different flavors of ice cream. The service is always the best.

The buffet at Yoder's has a great selection of food at a reasonable price. The restaurant serves homemade bread with Amish apple butter. A mist for dining while in the area.

This place is always packed and I don`t know why. It`s over priced for a buffett and you better like broasted chicken ....no meat to speak of....they have even expanded the seating. I think the reason it is popular is because it`s Amish. Don`t be fooled I cook for two church`s in the area, there mashed potatoes are out of... More

Comfort food at its finest. Great fried chicken and sides, nice salad and dessert bar. Definitely worth the trip. I've heard about it for years and this was our first time. I'm sorry we never tried it sooner. Everything is homemade and tastes amazing. You have the option of the buffet or ordering off the menu. We opted for buffet... More

If you are looking for Kale salad and wheat juice shots you will not find them here! Rather, here the wheat is converted into dumplings, breads and cobblers! Great fried chicken and bread pudding!
