Old fashioned meat loaf plate lunch served with delicious apple butter. Nothing but the chain restaurants at the exits from I57. The short drive into town gets you to a real restaurant.

I had the turkey dinner: turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes with gravy and succotash. They also brought freshly made bread with apple butter. My husband had a grilled Dutch sausage sandwich and french fries. We bought a pint of their apple butter to take home. We would definitely go again.

I love homemade mashed potatoes and gravy and oven fried chicken...but this restaurant also has great roasted beef and meatloaf. I would recommend bringing a big appetite!

We went on a weekday at lunch. The food was great, the food is "Home Cooking"! The prices are reasonable. The restaurant is very clean. The staff are very friendly. This is a very nice place to eat!

Took my family there on a Sunday. Had the turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and corn. The turkey was moist and flavorful, but a little too much dark meat. The stuffing wasn't anything to tweet about. However, the mash potatoes were tasty! Service was average. Table was a little squished, BUT there were a bunch of crayons for the kids. Kudos!

We ate at Yoders CountryKitchen on Friday night there was a slight wait but no more the 15 min. We did the buffets it was $11.50 for adults. There is a very nice gift shape to brows while you wait.

This is my second visit and both were disappointing. I had ham and beans with cornbread. Tasted like they opened a can odds beans and threw prepackaged ham chunks in. No salt or spices of any kind. Don't bother.

Friendly staff and delicious food. The sausage and the biscuits were the best. The Dutch breakfast special is awesome!
