Fantastic Food

Can't beat Yoders for home cooked food that come in huge portions. The fried chicken is delicious and you have to get a pice of homemade pie which is what they're known for. I love the blueberry pie. Overall, great food, portions, and prices!

Have eaten at many Amish restaurants when we lived in Ohio, this was fair. Clam chowder was cold, but did not send it back. Bought trail bologna at gift shop.

We stopped here envisioning the likes of the Amish restaurants In Pennsylvania Dutch country. Unfortunately, we were somewhat disappointed. This did seem to be a popular spot, but none of us really enjoyed our meals. The fresh bread, apple butter and strawberry pie were all delicious. Too bad the entrees didn't compare....

If I had to request a last meal, this would be it. The best food I've ever eaten in my life! Go at off hours to eat to beat the crowds.

Good food average portions and average prices. Except for the pie, its around $5 a generous slice. Good service, friendly atmosphere. Carpet needs to go, (it stinks) No carpets in restaurants. Pie case needs servicing (we sat right next to it) has tape on parts of doors. Consider a remodel, seating a bit tight.

Yoder's has simple, delicious, home style cooking with generous portions and friendly service, but what really keeps us coming back are the pies. There are more than 30 different types of Amish pies to choose from that are made from scratch. My favorite is the peanut butter cream pie. You can order by the slice or order whole pies, either...

Visiting family in Tampa, Fl and they mentioned going here for lunch. The food was really delicious and the pies were great too. They had super friendly staff and the food came right away. The place was packed and we were there on a Tuesday afternoon. From what our family says, they're always packed. After eating here, now we know... More

I decided to have pie at Yoders. After about an hour wait we finally got our table. I ordered the peanut butter pie and it was one of the best pies I have ever tasted.

As the title says, good home cooking. Fried chicken and corn cakes were good, turkey dinner with dressing and mashed potatoes was good, cole slaw and 5 bean salad were both too sweet. The pies, though, are really good and are the deciding factor between a 3 and 4 rating. On this visit we had coconut cream and peanut butter... More
