We had lunch for 4 and we had to wait 15 minutes to get seated. The service was first class and the food was outstanding . The prices were very reasonable . One of the best restraints in Florida.

I'm not a huge fan of buffets, BUT this is one place that you need to try. You can also order off the menu but you get more bang for your buck and the food is delicious. Great salads and variety. Many choices on the hot food side also. The chicken is tender on the inside and just the right... More

Have enjoyed this Yoder's since 1977, a delightful experience every time. A favorite hot weather treat is the chef's salad selected with half ham and half chicken, ranch dressing. Uniquely presented, huge serving always "just right." The pies are devoured by all, sometimes even taken home for later repast.

The service was friendly and the food was superb, home cooked food which was plentiful and tasted amazing and the portions are huge. Really good value for money! The Key Lime pie is the best I have ever tasted and the Pecan... More

This was our first visit to Yoder's but had been wanting to check it out as we heard they had wonderful pies. There was a line out the door to the end of the building, but we decided to wait. Hubby stood in line while I perused the little gift shop and by the time I made a 10 minute... More

The waiters were very friendly and helpful. Large variety of food from which to choose, small portion, large portion or 1/2 portion. The roast beef melt was delicious. Very thick roast beef with melted cheese on a homemade hoagie bun.

Ate lunch in Yoders twice this vacation. Enjoyable comfort food. As I don't cook it at home (because I don't like it), my husband had liver and onions, mash and gravy. He was in heaven and said they have the best mashed potato ever. I had their famous chicken salad which is prepared with pineapple and almonds. It was very... More

Had to wait on line for about 30 minutes but it was worth the wait. Thought the food was really good and the pies were delicious. Our waitress was very nice.
