This restaurant is always busy! There is a lovely gift shop to browse while you wait that is reasonably priced. The selection of food is amazing and so is the collection of baked goods to buy. A must do in Belleville.

I've been here many times and I always say I'm going to order from the menu, but every time I get the Buffet . The food is always fresh and the Buffet is always well stocked . The slice of pie for $2 with the buffet is well worth it too.

Der Dutchman is always a good place to eat (either off the menu or their smorgasbord). Very good food and many dessert choices. Their are many dessert choices to take home and a gorgeous gift shop upstairs.

In America, we've come to expect that "average" isn't worth our time or money. This restaurant is a good example of why that's a mistake. The truth is, my bean soup was a teeny bit on the gluey side, my pulled pork was a smidge too salty, and I had enjoyed better corn at a different comfort food restaurant a... More

We come here about once a year and then I remember why. Service was a tad slow and the food is just average for the price. Gift shop is nice.

We had the buffet on a Tuesday around noon. The food was pretty good, not AMAZING, but we definitely left full. Lunch buffet was $12.99, and we all only ate one plate so it wasn't cheap but it wasn't totally outrageous either. The menu items were reasonably priced but we were in a hurry so we went with the buffet.

I guess I expected some real down home food. They served it as such but much of the food was rather tasteless. The waitress was attentive and pleasant
