You know those really special homemade feasts that most of us only get to enjoy during the holidays? At this restaurant in Sarasota, you can have a meal like that any time of year. That’s right, Florida has an Amish community! And that’s great for the rest of us, too, because Amish restaurants are famous for cooking the best comfort food in the world.
Fried and roasted chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, ham, meatloaf, roast beef, mac ‘n’ cheese, and much, much more, all made from scratch daily. Even better, Der Dutchman offers an all-you-can-eat buffet, so you can try a little of everything.
Although you might not expect it among all of these tasty comfort foods, you can also find some good healthy options on the menu. If you go for the buffet, check out the salad bar for the usual fresh veggies as well as some unique Amish options you probably haven’t tried before.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a real feast without dessert. Just looking at these pies and cakes will make your mouth water. On your way out, stop by the bakery on the first floor and choose from a wide array of delicious homemade sweets. There is also a selection of savory goods, including cheese and sausages.
You can also head upstairs to the large gift shop, which has something for everyone. It’s a really fun place to browse and adds to the whole experience.
