This was our second time at Grandma Yoders's, the food is very good and lots of it. It is well worth the drive from Cape Coral & we will be back next vacation !!

We usually travel here for lunch each year as do many other showbirds. It is an Amish restaurant in an Amish community. The wait is usually 30-45 minutes both outside and inside. They are quite famous for homemade breads and pies. Worth the trip.

Our party of four thought it to be a bit over glorified. Maybe when Grandma was there looking out over the kitchen it was fantastic, but it was good, but not fantastic. My turkey dinner was good, but I have had better at Bob Evens. My hubbie really loved the meatloaf, and it was a huge portion. The place was... More

Yoder's serves tasty fresh food and fine service but it is honestly not authentic Amish cooking. True Amish cooking is far better, like your grandma's home baked fare. But you still can't complain.

I'd never go out of my way to get here, but it's in a handy spot and the food's OK.

My wife and I both got sick. Last year we went often during our stay in Bradenton and food was good. Will not go back. New owner and new staff. We have warned our friends to avoid this place this year.

Saw it on Man vs Food, and popped in on holiday in Florida. Wonderful! If you like dessert pies and home cooking, then this is the place! Great staff and friendly good service.

We chose this restaurant because of the full page ad in the hotel guest services binder. We don't often go the a place where everything is awful, but this was it. The fact that there was no one else there at 6:00 pm should have warned us. My husband ordered turkey with dressing. They were out of dressing. The turkey... More

We live nearby, and I had been there for lunch once or twice and dinner once before. I did not remember it being this bad, but the food was atrocious, everything was overcooked. My husband had calf's liver with sweet potato cassarole and green beans. The liver was overcooked, it might have been ok if pulled off the grill 3-4... More
