I have visited Yoder's Restaurant many, many times over the years and have always enjoyed the food from the buffet or from the menu. The customers at Yoder's buffet are more civilized and polite than at Shady's which is like feeding time at the pig trough, people bumping into you trying to get ahead of you at the serving tables....

Yoder's continues to be our "go to" while visiting... when we want buffet dining. Their selection is good, the hours are reasonable and the price is fair. It's also a friendly place and not pretentious. It's certainly not gourmet dining--more comparable to "upscale" cafeteria dining. Try the meadow tea! There are enough choices from salad bar through desserts that anyone... More

First time here, and I have to say that I'd compare it to Dienner's (although it's not quite that good!!!). They have a good variety of food, which is all good, but not so much that you're overwhelmed (like Shady Maple). The price for lunch is only $10.99 which is hard to beat. I wasn't blown away by the desserts... More

Been coming to Yoder's for years and I'm never disappointed. The buffet snobs that have reviewed Yoder's and compared to Shady Maple and Bird in Hand must like wasting money, enjoy those long lines and the bland, steamed food. Yoder's is $15 - compared to $22 to $30 at competitors. Ultimately, the food at Yoder's is just plain better. In... More

Had a group of extended family in town and wanted to get together for breakfast. This was a great option. Could either order off the menu or do the breakfast buffet. I didn't find anything on the buffet to be lacking or a disappointment. There was also the two custom stations - one that did eggs to order and the... More

I grew up in Lancaster County and when we visit we always stop at Yoders to get some great Pennsylvania Dutch Food. We usually go for breakfast. Great variety and friendly service.

We went yesterday evening because Miller's Buffet in Rocks, PA had a 2 hr wait. Very disappointed! Their taste like hospital food! Never again!

Yoder's is one of our favorites for breakfast or dinner when in the area. Breakfast is buffet style or off the menu. We usually choose buffet, and have our omeletes made to order while we watch. Great selection of breakfast meats, potatoes, and anything else you can think of for breakfast...including donuts! Consistantly good food and service!

Was not impressed with the selection of foods lots of vegetables. Three of the four adults that were there we're not feeling good after eating the food. Buffet and grill Foods where warm not hot. Being a local resident would rather go to Shady Maple .
