My wife and I stopped here for lunch while passing through Arcola on the way to Chicago. Arcola is a small quaint town. She ordered their turkey luncheon special but her meal did not contain much turkey. I ordered their fried chicken. It was good but a bit dried out. The salad bar, which was nothing special, was $4.99 extra with the meal. It is ridiculous to charge $4.99 extra for their salad bar that consisted of a small salad bar with just mostly lettuce. The Dutch Kitchen is known for their pie and their breaded tenderloin sandwiches. The interior of the restaurant was very well preserved from its last remodel which was likely around fifty years ago.
This restaurant is not owned by the Amish. Because this area is supposed to be Amish country, they call it "The Dutch Kitchen". If you want real Amish, you have to drive to the town of Arthur, another 30-minute drive from Arcola.
