Located somewhat inconspicuously in the Pinecraft area of Sarasota. Ambience is quaint. There was a short waiting line when we arrived around 6 PM on a weeknight but it moved quickly. Our server was gracious and efficient. Homemade bread with apple butter arrived at our table right after we ordered and was delicious. Both our dinners (chicken and roast beef)... More

Fabulous place to get a home cooked meal. The fried chicken and pies will have you coming back for more. Great food, great service, great value. This is a must!!?

We were looking for a place that prepared vegetables and we certainly found it at Yoders. The food was fantastic and there was so much to choose from it was hard to make a decision since it all looked wonderful. Unfortunately it was at the end of our trip or we would have been back the next day.

You won't find a better buffet in Sarasota. The fried chicken is excellent and all the vegetables a cooked/seasoned very well. Most everyone deserves to "pig out" occasionally and this is the place to do it. Dessert bar is outstanding.

The food is really tasty. I recommend the fried chicken which was delicious. The pies are homemade. Nice gift shop to browse in and a fresh fruit/vegetable stand next door.

I had a chef salad it was enough for two. Honestly I wanted everything on the menu it looked so good and smelled good. And the desserts looked amazing. My wife had a vegetable plate everything she had was awesome. They have a market next door with fresh fruits and vegetables. Bread comes to the table before your meal and... More

Yoder's pies are awesome! We went for dinner and had delicious broasted chicken and home made mashed potatoes! Way more then I could eat (I was saving room for pie 😉) I love the coconut cream pie it's my favorite but I wouldn't rule out any of their pies! There's a cute shop with crafty Amish things and a little... More

Salad, chicken, pies, bread, everything was delicious. Be ready to wait to be seared. Sometimes the line goes around the restaurant. Customer friendly and food was delivered expeditiously. Recommend it 100%.

This place has the best baked chicken, old school chocolate cake, turkey dinner, and prepared meals from their Market. When I'm sick I pickup a prepared meal from the Market area of amish noodles with chicken. Its so yummy and hits the spot. The strawberry pie is also a masterpieces with the amount of whipped cream on top and full... More
