I go to Sarasota annually for the Opera season and never miss breakfast at Yoders. The service is good, choices great, food tremendous and they have PIES. If I lived there I'd leave with a pie everytime. Best thing I can say is that I have lived my life rarely finding anything worth waiting in line for. I wait in line at Yoders.
Please note this is an Amish restaurant and thus they are closed on Sunday.

This is the 3rd time we have visited this restaurant. We actually made a point of being in Sarasota so that we could eat here this year on our trip to FL. It has been shown on the Travel Channel, as one of the best places for homemade food. If you don't mind waiting approx. 1/2 hour in line in front of the restaurant you won't be disappointed. This is not gourmet food, but real 'home cooking'. Don't go if you are pressed for time as you never really know how long the line is. The good news is that once you are seated you are served rather quickly. You can buy a pie at a walk-up window if you don't have time to wait. True Amish restaurant with lots of Amish & Mennonite custormers waiting in line with you.

Always a wonderful meal at Yoder's. Don't let the lines outside the door scare you, the wait is not nearly as long as it is at those awful, noisy chain restaurants. If you crave wonderful, home cooked meals this is the spot. All of the meals here taste like they were made by grandma, so many options and all of them taste like they were made with love specifically for you. Though it is difficult, save room for some pie, if no room make sure to take a piece home for later. The pies are the best anywhere. Service is always prompt, yet not pushy. A must place to eat when you are in Sarasota.

We waited in line about 45 minutes but it was worth every minute. The food was delicious, to say the least. Yoder's fried chicken is the best I've ever tasted, seasoned perfectly with a crispy crust but not greasey. The menu is loaded with variety...every meat or vegetable you can imagine. Great home cooking, not highly seasoned. Yoder's deserts are lucious. If you don't have room for desert, take a piece of pie home...or the moist chocolate cake..yummy. The restaurant is very clean and the service is excellent.

Yoder's has amazing amounts of great comfort food. Not to mention the baked goods - breakfast or lunch - you can't go wrong and be sure to visit the little store next door - lots of neat things!
