Description: For the hard-working people of Holmes County, Ohio, eating is a simple pleasure, shared at family meals, times of fellowship, and celebrations. Der Dutchman Restaurant has been at the heart of this community and its food traditions for more than 30 years. Our Amish Kitchen Cooking is the No. 1 reason generations of visitors make the trip to Der Dutchman every year. But our hilltop location and spectacular view come in a close second. Lunch and dinner feature simple, straightforward classics—chicken, country-cured ham, roast beef and turkey, and chicken potpie. Hearty side dishes include real mashed potatoes, homemade egg noodles, and the freshest tasting creamed corn you’ll ever have the good fortune to eat. There’s also a great Kid’s Menu, with all their favorites, and lighter options, including homemade soups, fresh salads, and sandwiches.

My husband and I enjoyed lunch here last weekend. Although there was a line on the porch when we arrived, I don't think it took more than 10-15 minutes before we were in and seated. The service was fantastic and every bite of our meal was delicious (especially the raspberry cream pie!) Will definitely return!

The food is stellar and by adding in the salad bar, I recommend only getting the one chicken meal rather than two. My eyes were bigger than my stomach! Good service and good value. We'll be back!

We ate at the Der Dutchman twice while in the area for a family reunion. Great home cooked meals (no alcohol), good service, and good value.

The food here is excellent and there are lots of choices. You will most likely have to wait to get seated, but it is certainly worth the wait. They have a large buffet or you can order from the menu. The desserts are to die for.

Had a great time in Amish country. Had lunch at Der Dutchman and, as always, the food was great. Our waitress was even better. Such a friendly and efficient young lady. Had the fried chicken, homemade mashed potatoes, and stuffing. And what a view out the back windows. The leaves are at their autumnal peak and beautiful. Many good restaurants in Amish country but you never go away hungry or disappointed at Der Dutchman!
