NE Ohio - Amish country - need lunch suggestions, please
Planning a leef peeping, Amish country visit to NE Ohio in a couple weeks. Have been to several places (Mrs Yoder's, Der Dutchman, The Amish Door) but it's been a while. Looking for good, simple food, doesn't have to be buffet. Will be crossing through Millersort into Berlin and Sugar Creek.. Willing to go out of the way for some good chow! Thanks!
Above all other amish places, I recommend Der Dutch Essenhaus in the otherwise easily missed tiny town of Shreve. It is so much better than all the bigger places we went to when we vacationed in amish country, it's really worth it. Get the broasted chicken! I also recommend stopping by Guggisberg cheese if you can, their swiss cheese is award winning and really good.
Mrs. Yoder’s and Der Dutchman are both good choices. Haven’t eaten at Amish Door. Here are a few additional suggestions.
Boyd and Wurthmann is highly recommended by several friends. Not fancy at all but great home-cooking at reasonable prices. I haven’t eaten there myself but am dying to try on my next day trip.

You can also get lunch with a glass of wine at Breitenbach winery in Dover and Heini’s Gourmet Market in Sugarcreek. The lunch menu at both places is more café-style than homestyle but delicious.
Hope you have a fun trip. Let us know how things worked out.
