“Our new favorite restautant...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

We have been vacationing on Siesta Key at the Calini Beach Club for 4 years now and had never tried the Dutch Valley. After driving for two days to get to SK we were tired and just wanted to go to a local place for dinner before unpacking....my Husband checked on line to see who had good reviews close by and came up the Dutch Valley. Well I have to tell you we went back at least 5 times during our 2 week vacation. I am amazed that it took us 4 years to find this place. The best home cooking I think I have ever had in a restaurant. Everything is fresh and made right there and we always left with a container of left overs....breakfast is awesome and so much food...never order 2 biscuits and gravy because 1 biscuit is huge. Now let me tell you about the rice pudding...THE BEST I HAVE EVER HAD....and on your first time visit they give you each a cup to take home with you as an added threat. I gained 5 pds during our trip and most of it was because of Dutch Valley, we could have eaten there every day....all of the servers are so sweet and most have worked there forever. Prices are good.

“Yearly trip to Sarasota includes a visit to Dutch Valley Restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We make a yearly trip to Sarasota to visit family. A visit to Dutch Valley is always on the agenda.
The staff is always friendly and efficient. The food is always of great quality.
Love the place!

“great service and prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

We went Mother's Day for breakfast and again on a Tuesday for lunch. The service was outstanding, the food good and the prices reasonable. It has been a long time since visiting a restaurant in which the staff truly worked together. It was incredibly well staffed on mother's day and adequately staffed on the weekday visit. The food is good and the prices are affordable. Had we stayed a week we would have eaten there a couple more times I am sure. Just a good, clean, pleasant place to eat.

“Average food, great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

You cannot go wrong coming here for breakfast. Dinner can be good, too, but go to Longhorn's next door if you want steak. Home cooking dishes are their gig. Portions are large and extras (salad, soup, desserts) are included. Prices are very reasonable. I wish this place were in north Atlanta. Avoid the grey rush at 5:00 pm.

“Wife says its a "Terminator"!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

"I'll be back!!"(pretend Arnold voice!) We went here tonite and she had the turkey and I had the strip steak. Both were good and filling and she brought part of her's home. As previously mentioned, you get soup, salad, entree with choice of potato and dessert. Such a deal! We have been coming to Siesta Key for 4 years but this was our first time at Dutch Valley. All I can say is it should have been sooner! Jorge our server was very attentive and helpful. They also serve beer and wine. If you mention that it is your first visit, you get a surprise on the way out!
