We try to stop at Der Dutchman every time we pass through. We stopped again recently, and, again, weren't disappointed. We passed on the buffet as it seemed a little pricey for what was on the line so we ordered off the menu. The food was excellent, and the service was outstanding. We toured the gift shop and got some... More

This place is homey and family oriented but the buffet was not what I expected for the type of restaurant I was. There was limited choices and some of the food was cold. My husband got a hot roast beef sandwich and he had a huge chunk of fatty tissue in it. The store was nice to browse in.

We stopped at this restaurant on a family trip to Niagara Falls for lunch. We were all extremely impressed with the lunch buffet. You would have thought it was the dinner buffet. The salad bar had a great and wide selection to choose from. You could have filled up on it alone. The Hot Bar was just as well stocked.... More

This restaurant is always busy! There is a lovely gift shop to browse while you wait that is reasonably priced. The selection of food is amazing and so is the collection of baked goods to buy. A must do in Belleville.

I've been here many times and I always say I'm going to order from the menu, but every time I get the Buffet . The food is always fresh and the Buffet is always well stocked . The slice of pie for $2 with the buffet is well worth it too.

Der Dutchman is always a good place to eat (either off the menu or their smorgasbord). Very good food and many dessert choices. Their are many dessert choices to take home and a gorgeous gift shop upstairs.

In America, we've come to expect that "average" isn't worth our time or money. This restaurant is a good example of why that's a mistake. The truth is, my bean soup was a teeny bit on the gluey side, my pulled pork was a smidge too salty, and I had enjoyed better corn at a different comfort food restaurant a... More
