Yoders has some of the best home cooking around. Make sure you try their fried chicken or meatloaf. And their pies are the best! Might I suggest the banana cream? And if you have to take a dessert to a get-together, just walk up to their pie window and grab and go!

Hadn't been back here in quite a while but it did not disappoint. Good home cooked meals, fresh pies and excellent service like I remember from my first visit. Very busy place so be prepared to sometimes wait a bit, but worth it.

Farm fresh eggs, dairy fresh whole milk, fried oatmeal, stuffed French toast, an chocolate peanut butter pie are ALL outstanding. The restaurant is a little small, and closed on Sundays, and booths are small and cozy. Waitresses wear traditional Amish clothing and are all plump so you know the food is great.

Nice, quaint little shops surround the restaurant that has been in Sarasota for a really long time. The lines are long, but if you have the time, it is worth the wait! The food is so tasty, the staff is always great, and the pies are just a slice of heaven. The deli is a great place to pick up... More

Service was fantastic on the busiest day of the year. Food was fresh hot, salad crisp, and portions were over the top. I have owned resturants and this place sets a new standard. It was 50 miles to drive but worth all of it.

These last few months my wife and I have been to Yoder's at least six or seven times. Sad to say we got hooked on this place, and have to travel thirty five miles or more to get there since we live in Hillsborough county. Most everything on the menu is great, but we love the baked chicken with dressing... More

Over in Orlando from the UK and my wife wanted to go here for her birthday after we saw it on Man V Food, so we took a 2 hour drive to visit. We ordered a 4 piece chicken to share with a couple of sides, more than enough for us both. The chicken was cooked to perfection, so moist... More

The good home cooking of the Amish grace this quaint restaurant. Sunday after church is busy, but they have great fried chicken. The pies are to die for, fruit or custard, yum!!!

Typical Amish Restaurant. We normally only do Breakfast at Yoders. It is superb!. Portions are large. Home cooking type Dinners. Not sure about Lunch, but everything we have ever had there has been good except for Fish. Their Friday F&C needs to be worked on. but then there are plenty of seafood places in Sarasota & surrounding areas to enjoy.
