This is a Very popular Resturant and had to wait for lunch and there was a very long line but the people in line said we would not be disappointed and they were right it was delicious and the pie was excellent we will go back but at a earlier time but it's worth the wait.

If your the personal type with the childlike curiosity of why everything smells so good comming out of the kitchen Yoder's is a must do while in Town. We are so fortunate to experience the Dutch work ethic and the inspiring people who work there. We met a teacher from Hillsboro County who liked it so much he makes a... More

Our family decided to have dinner there on a Saturday evening. When we arrived at 4:30 pm the line was out the front door. After about an hour wait, we ordered the most scrumptious meal a fellow could as for. I had the pulled pork, mashed potatoes and cabbage and it was very delicious. The portions are very ample and...

We have been used to the Amish restaurants in OH (Plain City or around Millersburg or Mansfield) - great food, nicely seasoned. Yoder's had a pleasant, old-timely ambiance, nothing fancy, simple with an "old Florida" feel without the Gulf or ocean. The staff was pleasant and helpful (we were a party of 4 adults and 4 children ranging in age... More

This is a Mennonite restaurant. Very crowded but with good service. Servings are bountiful. There is often a line to get in, but waiting time has always been under 20 minutes.

If you have eaten here before you will understand my giving this advice: Do not get full on the homemade bread and the most delicious apple butter you will ever eat BEFORE your meal arrives because the food you are about to be served deserves all your attention. Wow, everything was so good. We have eaten here several times and... More

Always a line to get in during winter season, but the wait is worth it, and the people drawn here are friendly and great conversationalists while you wait. Menu is top-average, with "home cooking" and daily specials. Never had a bad experience as the food is always served with a friendly and helpful server without unexpected delay. This is becoming...

We were here for breakfast. It was big and wonderful. The waitress was fun and full of vinegar. This is in the heart of Pinecraft which is Amishville, Florida. So this is a meal and an experience rolled into one. The restaurant is near a fruit and produce stand which is also Amish. Go hungry, leave full.

We arrived about 1:30 on a Saturday afternoon and stood in line about 15 minutes before being seated. The fried chicken was the best I've ever had - moist and just the right amount of crispy breading and gives Yoder's a 5-star rating by itself. Our side dishes were mashed potatoes/gravy (good but not special) and Harvard beets, which were... More
