Mrs. Yoder's Kitchen, a Favorite Restaurant of Amish Country Inn
Guests at our Amish Country Inn often ask for dinner recommendations when visiting Holmes County, Ohio. Our favorite Amish-style restaurant in the area is Mrs. Yoder's Kitchen. The restaurant is located in Mt. Hope, Ohio at the corner of State Route 241 and County Road 77. When we visit it seems that many guests choose the Broasted Chicken, but there are many selections on the dinner menu from Wedding Steak to Pot Roast to a Grilled Pork Chop to Teriyaki Salmon. You will want to choose the salad bar as one of our side dish choices. It offers more than just a tossed salad. There are local favorites like broccoli-cauliflower salad or broccoli-peanut salad to jello salads and bean salads. There are several side dishes to choose from including real mashed potatoes, cheesy potluck potatoes, locally made noodles, and more. The hardest part for us is to save room for dessert because the entree portions are so hearty. The homemade pies at Mrs. Yoder's Kitchen are out of this world. They have seasonal favorites such as fresh peach pie and blueberry cream pie as well. There is also a Date Cake that is similar to the Date Nut Pudding served at many Amish gatherings. The cake is like a spice cake with whipped cream and caramel sauce. You definitely want to try this dessert or take some home. You won't be disappointed when you visit Mrs. Yoder's Kitchen for a meal.
