One of our favourite haunts in Sarasota, good old fashioned food like you wish your Mum cooked!! Always happy staff, good food, a "Must" if visiting Sarasota, but can get busy in the evenings

I visited around 5pm one weekday on my way home expecting to sit down and have a quick meal. No way! The line was wrapped around the restaurant so I opted for take out and eating at a picnic table on the side of the restaurant where they have a platform. Some kind women said it was the way to...

The place is packed, particularly in season. The food is good, prices fair. Their fried chicken is the best and of course their pies are great. It's an authentic Amish restaurant with tasty, home cooked style meals. It's not gourmet, but not intended to be that. It's a nice family place.

Yoder's on Bahia Vista, just west of Beneva, in Sarasota is a carbohydrate-centric diner specializing in mashed potatoes and dishes overflowing with a viscous tasteless gravy. Unless you're burning enough energy to justify 7,500 calories of remarkably bland food, your menu choices are very limited. Add to this a staff that appears to be totally indifferent to customers and management... More

Amish home cooking. Over crowded, over priced due to tv show. You want moms home cooking, go there. Make room for the pie-peanut butter is the specialty. They even win awards. Open for breakfast to.

The menu is a straightforward meat and potatoes set up. I ordered the fried chicken and it was fairly bland but still tasty. Great pies though. Hold off for the breads and desserts.

This one is the best of the so called Amish restaurants in the area. The community is in actuality Ohio Mennonite who winter in Sarasota. That being said, if you want really good comfort food, come here. The fried chicken in great. Lightly breaded, lightly spiced and not greasy. This is the only place that I can get pan fried... More
