Had lunch at Yoder's Buffet with two grandsons. Food was good - service great. Grandsons had fried chicken, corn fritters, buttered noodles. Everything was refilled and hot. Dipped ice cream was very good - liked the black cherry.

Disappointing - The food was ok at best. During the hour or so we were there, they did not once refill the fried shrimp or the meatballs with pasta. And the food, notably the fried chicken, was lukewarm and seemed to have been sitting around for quite awhile. But that is nothing compared to the service - We were seated... More

Went to Yoder's Buffet for breakfast on Saturday morning. Disappointed with the buffet. The crepes were tough, had to request powdered sugar. Regular cook wasn't on the line yet. Eggs on the buffet bar were luke warm - cold. Eggs on the grill were overdone. Sausage links were well browned - burned. Bacon was clumped together. Small selection of pastries.... More

I have visited Yoder's Restaurant many, many times over the years and have always enjoyed the food from the buffet or from the menu. The customers at Yoder's buffet are more civilized and polite than at Shady's which is like feeding time at the pig trough, people bumping into you trying to get ahead of you at the serving tables....

Yoder's continues to be our "go to" while visiting... when we want buffet dining. Their selection is good, the hours are reasonable and the price is fair. It's also a friendly place and not pretentious. It's certainly not gourmet dining--more comparable to "upscale" cafeteria dining. Try the meadow tea! There are enough choices from salad bar through desserts that anyone... More

First time here, and I have to say that I'd compare it to Dienner's (although it's not quite that good!!!). They have a good variety of food, which is all good, but not so much that you're overwhelmed (like Shady Maple). The price for lunch is only $10.99 which is hard to beat. I wasn't blown away by the desserts... More

Been coming to Yoder's for years and I'm never disappointed. The buffet snobs that have reviewed Yoder's and compared to Shady Maple and Bird in Hand must like wasting money, enjoy those long lines and the bland, steamed food. Yoder's is $15 - compared to $22 to $30 at competitors. Ultimately, the food at Yoder's is just plain better. In... More

Had a group of extended family in town and wanted to get together for breakfast. This was a great option. Could either order off the menu or do the breakfast buffet. I didn't find anything on the buffet to be lacking or a disappointment. There was also the two custom stations - one that did eggs to order and the... More
