The food and service during the lunch on April 12th was really great but what was really exceptional was the service afterwards. My wife, daughter and I are visiting family in Ohio and we live in Mexico City. We did not realize that my daughter had forgotten her Ipad until we arrived in Columbus. We contacted them and they confirmed... More

When we are in Holmes county we make sure we eat at the Der Dutchman. They have an awesome buffet. The chicken is the best around. It falls right off the bone. They have a great salad bar and great desserts. We have never had a bad meal. Would highly recommend this restruant and have many times.

Hello Shana, We do have a great view here at Walnut Creek Der Dutchman but that is not all people come here for. The food and service should match that view. I do apologize that we were not up to the standard that we strive for. I am glad that you were able to enjoy some time at our Dutch... More

For the hard-working people of Holmes County, Ohio, eating is a simple pleasure, shared at family meals, times of fellowship, and celebrations. Der Dutchman Restaurant has been at the heart of this community and its food traditions for more than 30 years. Our Amish Kitchen Cooking is the No. 1 reason generations of visitors make the trip to Der Dutchman every year. But our hilltop location and spectacular view come in a close second.
