We went for an early dinner, and got a table right away. We both ordered the all white meat turkey dinner, with mashed potatoes and veggies...all of which was very good. Hubby ordered banana cream pie, which he said was very good, but my strawberry pie could have had much more strawberries.

This is by far the best breakfast buffet we have tried. There were so many selections and there was one person who made sure everything was hot and full even though they were not very busy this morning. The food quality was excellent.

This location is now super busy since they opened the Star Theater across the parking lot. We arrived at 6:00 PM and had to wait about 15 minutes to be seated...which wasn't too bad. I heard a few of the customers mention that since the theater opened, with two shows (afternoon and 7:00PM), on the weekends, this restaurant is usually... More

The food is always delicious here and the portions are large. This is a great family restaurant with plenty of seating. The price is very reasonable which a large choice of meals and dessert. There is also plenty of parking area. The service is good every time we visit and the staff is friendly and accommodating.

The Der Dutchman is a favorite of ours. We love the salad bar, chicken you can cut with a fork, tender and juicy roast beef, real mashed potatoes and homemade dinner rolls. Save room for the warm apple crisp and whipped cream also on the buffet. Don't forget the peanut butter spread on the table, it's great on a soft... More

Like what many have commented, the wait is short even you see a very long queue, so don't give this a miss. The waitress is very friendly and the food is good. You get a good view if you happened to sit near the window. By the way the free buns are good and the apple butter spread is awesome... More

For the hard-working people of Holmes County, Ohio, eating is a simple pleasure, shared at family meals, times of fellowship, and celebrations. Der Dutchman Restaurant has been at the heart of this community and its food traditions for more than 30 years. Our Amish Kitchen Cooking is the No. 1 reason generations of visitors make the trip to Der Dutchman every year. But our hilltop location and spectacular view come in a close second. Lunch and dinner feature simple, straightforward classics—chicken, country-cured ham, roast beef and turkey, and chicken potpie. Hearty side dishes include real mashed potatoes, homemade egg noodles, and the freshest tasting creamed corn you’ll ever have the good fortune to eat. There’s also a great Kid’s Menu, with all their favorites, and lighter options, including homemade soups, fresh salads, and sandwiches.
