Having gone there for year, my most recent trip in 2014 was a disappointment. Meager portions and poorly seasoned. I'll have a hard time returning.

We stumbled upon this place after stopping at their fruit market next door. The restaurant line went out the door so we opted for their outside window to order and then sat outside. I had Sloppy Joe and my wife had the BBQ Chicken Sandwich. When we opened the cartons, we were greeted by an overflowing amount of really good... More

The food came in hearty portions, it was delicious, and the prices were reasonable. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The only problem is they often have a waiting line, which tells you it's a good place to eat.

I expected this to be staged for the tourists. Boy was I wrong. Half of the dinner crowd were Amish families. Portion size was huge and pies as good as advertised. Luckily we had a fridge and microwave at the hotel so nothing was wasted. Not gourmet dining but worth the experience. Who knew this was in Sarasota?

This place is the real deal! Amish cooking at its best. If you are going to eat breakfast you would be crazy not to try here. I went on a Saturday and there was a line outside. Definitely worth the wait I will be back!

Being Southern born, I love good "comfort" food, and Yoder's did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to arrive before the line was out the door, so we were seated fairly quickly. The service was great and fast. Their iced tea was fresh and strong. I ordered liver & onions, which is always a crap shoot in restaurants because so... More

We were pleased to get to eat here, as they are known for the yummy food, but usually are so full that one has to really stand in line to get in. Going first thing in the morning got us in right away. Service was pleasant and helpful. You won't be sorry for trying this place!

If you want very good plain Pennsylvania Dutch food served in large portions, this is your place to eat. It is a local favorite and be ready to stand in line! I certainly recommend going and as soon as possible.

This is a typical Amish restaurant, which means you are going to get good food and plenty of it. I've been to many Amish restaurants having done business in Lancaster County, PA, home to a large Amish population. And even though Yoder's is a bit south of Pennsylvania, their food is just as good. Home-style cooking and a family atmosphere... More
