Great Amish and American food, did the buffet and salad bar ate way too much! Food and service great! Didn't do the free cake and ice cream too full!

Upon entering this large and very clean restaurant, the line you're in to the dining room moves very quickly thru the huge, bright foyer that contains a gift area (offering Amish foods), a bakery and to the far right side, a cafe. We were seated at a table for two in the very large dining room and a very friendly... More

The restaurant is very busy at dinner time, they have several rocking chairs outside to enjoy while you wait, or you can shop their upstairs gift shop. The restaurant is big and very clean. I was pleasantly surprised with the freshness of the buffet; the food was hot and didn't appear to have been sitting in a steam table all... More

Delicious all you can eat buffet. The service was excellent and our server was great. The food was very hot and felt like it was just prepared, not sitting out for multiple hours like many buffets. 🖒

Four of us went for the "Amish" style food buffet, we didn't realize they also offered a per plate menu. We all chose to enjoy the buffet. The first thing I noticed was a broiled Cod fillet, that was delicious. The meats offered ran from pulled pork, to roast beef, fried chicken, and just about anything in between. The salad... More

Der Dutchman is a very clean Amish style food buffet restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. We visited for breakfast twice and lunch once this visit. There was a broad range of food offerings at each meal and everything seems tasty and well prepared. The restaurant is very clean and well maintained. That gives me confidence that the kitchen...
