Comfort food at its finest. Great value for the money spent, always prepared right, never a disappointment. Friendly staff, an Amish restaurant frequented by the local Amish community.

I've been going to Yoder's for 20 years now and never had a bad meal here. My favorite for breakfast is the biscuits and gravy. You can't go wrong with their fried chicken for lunch/dinner either. Make sure you save room for dessert because the pies are enormous and delicious.

This restaurant is located in Pinecraft village where the Amish gather for the winter from Penn, Ind, ILL. They all own homes in this quaint neighborhood. Yoder's cooks make 30 kinds of pie: peanut butter cream pie is 6-8 inches high. Pancakes hang over the plate. Eggs are fresh, and biscuits are so huge you can share them. Specials every... More

I have had a lot of good breakfasts but this was by far the best. We had omlette , eggs, bacon, and the apple fritter French toast. that was amazing! The biscutts and gravy was terrific! I make a hell of a sausage gravy and thought it was the best but they beat mine. Very highly recommend.

Busy place, in the middle of the afternoon, but we were seated promptly. I got a blt and didn't even have to ask for crisp bacon- it came that way, and with delicious ripe red tomato slices. Their carrot salad is to die for- carrots, raisins, pineapple- I want their recipe! Hubby got the best reuben sandwich he's ever eaten... More

I have had breakfast here which was fine but the highlight of this place is its pies with peanut butter or strawberry taking the top honors for me, I have heard that their fried chicken is said to be pretty good maybe i will try it someday. For now just give me PIE!

We went on a Saturday afternoon--apx 2pm. The line was out the door. After about a 30 min wait, we ordered fried chicken, salad, and turkey/dressing meals. The salad dressing was FANTASTIC. They cut the toppings on the salad extra tiny. Will order the salad again. the fried chicken was dry. Won't order that again. The turkey/dressing plate was tender... More
