Arthur is a great little town! This is like the icing on the cake. My favorite was the sweet "slaw" and corn --tasted fresh from the fields!

Our family had a delicious lunch including some of the best homemade baked bread we've ever tasted. The "broasted" chicken was amazing, along with the chix and noodles. My daughter especially loved the mashed potatoes!

We stopped at Yoder's Kitchen for lunch. We decided to order off the menu instead of having the buffet. The food was very good and reasonably priced. Our next trip to Arthur we will have to try the buffet.

Food tastes homemade, but there is a LOT of starch and not too many vegetables, other than the salad bar. Only meat was fried chicken and ham. Dessert was not too impressive. Homemade bread is really good.

I have not eaten breakfast there, so I am not sure. I checked their website and it indicates Friday and Saturday from 7-10:30 am. Hope this helps.

I believe if you are having a large party they might because they have a back room, but otherwise, no.
