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!

    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.

    Here’s a link. http://www.boydandwurthmann.com/

    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.

      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.

        I second this recommendation. And Shreve is such a pretty little town!

        Mrs Yoder's is good but the Amish Door and DerDutchman are touristy. I agree with RockandRoller1 about DerEssenhaus in Shreve.

        I could give you more recommendations if I knew what kind of dining you are looking for because I live in the Wooster area.

          What restaurant/bakery has the best pies in the Wooster area?

            It's not pies, but Tulipan Hungarian Pastry in Wooster has excellent European-style pastries. And it's great for lunch as well, since they have some nice soups and open-faced sandwiches; I just had the carrot-ginger soup and it was excellent. www.tulipanhungarianpastry.com
