We have enjoyed other Der Dutchman restaurants in Amish (Kidron) area of Ohio...this doesn't compare in the least. Our waitress was the best part of the experience. The food is poor quality. The price is not reasonable considering the quality of the hot entrees. Plus the price of the buffet includes no dessert offerings at all. I didn't complain since we were seeing family and that made up for the sucky restaurant. I paid the piper and made a mental note to NEVER eat there again.

Stopped here on way to blue jackets game from Cleveland. Cant recommend enough both because of the great food, as well as the total lack of quality food outside the city areas. It is not diet or health food, but hearty Amish style food. Fried chicken, and any of the fresh daily pies cant be beat....extremely clean. Wait staff a bit slow, but it s Amish country, what does move fast. Will return

We stopped here on our return trip from the Cleveland area. It is convenient off exit 165 on I-71 a little South of Marion. We both opted for the buffet (lunch). The food was generally good - not stellar. The service was average - even for a buffet. The building, decor and "General Store" was very nice and did stand out as the best aspect of the visit.

The food was very good, the service dido. This is an asset to the area and for travelers. When your pies are made with "never fail pie crust" and the parking lot is full of tourist buses and cars and you may have to wait to get a set this is a place for good food.

We spent the weekend in bellville and stopped here Friday night. We waited forever for a waitress. we got buffets and when we went to get food they were super low on items or empty. We come from near the original Dutch Corp restaurants in Holmes county so I know this is not what they stand for and expect from their restaurants. I asked for a refill and she never brought it. Asked for tarter sauce when I asked for the drink and it was more of a bother for her. Only came back to check on us to see if we wanted the bill. Want Amish food go to sugar creek/ walnut creek area. Do not recommend this restaurants location. The corp would be very disappointed in the service and food at this location. When we were there was not busy.. We are used to being at these restaurants and waiting half hr for a table yet waitresses are on top of things!
