This is one of my favorite places for breakfast. The food is simple but very good and the portions are large. Just make sure to arrive early as their full breakfast menu isn't available all day. Then grab a slice of pie to go. Best pie on the planet!

My wife and I have heard about Yoder's for years, but had never been there. While passing through Sarasota, we stopped to try it out. We were very pleased with the quality, quantity, and taste of the food. The fried chicken was great, and the peach pie and the blackberry pie were delicious. However, the building is older and the...

Yoders is a destination. Not just a restaurant with great food, large portions and family prices. There is a gift shop, a deli, a market, a produce stand and of course the restaurant. They even have whoopie pies in various flavors in the deli. A great find in Sarasota. Thank you Trip Advisor.

Yoder's Restaurant is the first place we visit when in Sarasota, Florida. The staff is helpful and friendly, the food is never disappointing from sandwiches to full meals. Portion sizes are very generous-- we always have something to take home for a meal the next day. Every flavor of freshly made pie is out of this world!

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.
