Meatloaf and mashed potatoes, green beans and home made apple pie. Home made southern fried chicken, Salisbury steak and country fried okra. Doesn't get any better than this.

Best place around for a lot of really well-prepared, very tasty food. Fried chicken and country fried steak were very good. The pies (coconut cream and blue berry) were not quite as excellent as we expected, but still good. Very friendly, very competent servers. Would goo back often if we could.

A quaint restaurant full of golden oldies (and they now a bargain when they see one).. (we are golden oldies too). This is not the fanciest of places, or the most comfortable, but once you have been you will want to go back. Service is friendly, the prices are reasonable and the portions are massive. Quite often its hard for... More

Awesome, down home cooking. Fresh as can be. Fried chicken is incredible and the pies will make you crave them forever more. Busy because it's really good and relaxed atmosphere.

Always visit when we are in the area. Great home cooking...nothing fancy. Nice sized portions and really tasty sides too. Leave room for the pie, or get a piece to go. You must! Prices are reasonable.

my husband was craving meatloaf and we heard this restaurant had delicious meatloaf so we went. He loved it and the portions were huge, I had the BBQ chicken also very good. We were both way too full for pie.

My wife loves to come here as they have a large and well prepared salad selection. The staff is always very very busy but kind. The place is really crowded all the time. I really don't like the atmosphere as I feel it is too diner like. It is a pricy lunch but it is hard to beat this well... More

We've heard about Yoder's for years, and during our time in Sarasota this year we made it! They don't take reservations and won't seat you until your whole party has arrived. Luckily, the line moves pretty quickly. I had the fried chicken and it was delicious. My husband and one cousin had the country fried steak, and raved about the... More
