This was my first time visit and it was a very good first impression. There is a souvenir shop, deli, farmers market and the restaurant. Though I did visit all the establishments i only had an interaction with the restaurant portion. There is plenty of parking and the grounds were well kept. There was a short line upon arrival which... More

This place has some of the best potato pancakes I've ever had. I enjoyed how you can choose many different sides. The chicken was good, but not as good as their pie.

We came just for pie. We were trying key lime pie everywhere in Florida and this was a big disappointment. The fresh peach wasn't much better. The waitress was very nice and had said that the peanut butter pie was a favorite of customers so we decided to try that one too. and it was wonderful! We took half home... More

So, we were dropping off our son to his new college in Sarasota and were surprised to learn that the area has a significant Mennonite presence and serves as something of a warm weather vacation destination for Amish and Mennonite families from up north. A cousin recommended this restaurant and we came on over for a Wednesday night dinner. Parking... More

Yoder's Restaurant serves a lot of good home cooked food and the best pies in town. They are all home made - I had the peach cobbler with whipped cream and it was luscious. It was a nice atmosphere and all the freshfaced servers were polite and knowledgeable about the food. However there deep fried chicken and potatoes are quite... More

Good food, just like grandma used to make, reasonable prices. Take out or eat in. Today & most times fast & delicious. But during peak season traditional dinner times, can have long wait to get a table.

Eight of us ate here last Saturday. We arrived at 5 p.m. and got seated at 5:45 p.m. While you are waiting they show you videos of their fried chicken and pies being made which makes you drool like crazy! Our server Rachael did a great job. As others have said, they bring you sliced brown bread and butter to... More

Have known about Yoder's for 3 years now from our former neighbor. This was our first opportunity to visit Yoders (aka Amish World). We were expecting a wait but didn't know exactly how "the wait" was done. It was very simple and made lots on sense.... when you arrive, you stand in line and snake along to the front. It... More

I can not believe the wonderful fried chicken I had at Yoders. The first thing I did when we were seated was order a piece of peach pie. So yes mom, I ate my dessert first and it was worth it!! We got there around 3pm and had to wait a few minutes for a table, by the time we... More
