We were visiting IL (about an hour and a half away from Arthur) over the Thanksgiving weekend and visited not only Arthur twice but Yoder's Kitchen as well. On the first visit I had Pancakes and Sausage. Now, I am not usually a pancake person but when I noticed they had peanut butter on the table I decided yes, I will have pancakes. (I prefer Peanut Butter instead of Butter). This was the best decision, they were fluffy and filling and with their amazing Amish Peanut Butter, to die for. The sausage were patties and is some of the best sausage I have ever had. On our second visit we came back for the Breakfast Buffet. Still good and allowed us to try more but if I returned for breakfast again, I would get the pancakes. The buffet allows you to try Mush. Which in my opinion tastes like deep fried grits. Now, when you go to an Amish restaurant and the Amish community is also eating there, you know it is good. We can't wait to return and plan to do so for dinner, primarily the Broasted Chicken

My husband had the Philly cheesesteak the meat was incredibly tender. I had the steak sandwich it was very good. Onion rings were nice and Light, with the onions crisp and not stringy. The kicker was my husband ordered a root beer float, I took a small taste and my childhood flashed before my eyes! Phenomenal. After we left we perused the candy assortment and ended up with 5 pieces of candy, toffee, creams Etc awesome. I love the decor, the cashier cage, the candy display cases. They also have another room that is a wall of books that you are more than welcome to take and read. This place is, as many original places should be, well taken care of by people who care about restoration and preserving the past. Definitely want to visit again.

They have recently expanded their dining space, even adding an upstairs part. Their chicken salad croissant is very good, got the combo so had potato salad and chips and a drink. They also have awesome hot fudge sundaes and other ice cream treats! Reasonably priced. Check site for current hours as they change in the winter.

Will never eat here again. Place has not been maintained at all and is dirty to the point of making me almost decide to leave. Too bad - with the lack of restaurants in the area this could have been better.

the bakery didn't have a large variety of baked goods, but they did have some beautiful rolls and loaves of bread. Also on the shelves were cookies and muffins, but no doughnuts. The Bakery is located across the driveway from the Pumpkin Patch which has a few animals for the kids to see (we saw a couple of sheep and a llama) , There is a small fee ($4.00) to enter for adults, etc. There is a large field behind the bakery just covered with pumpkins. A great place for the kiddies to choose their Halloween Jack-o-Lanterns

These people used to be the best in the area but have purchased too many sites and the quality has suffered. That being said they are still very good. Fast service and decent Mexican fare.

Enjoyed a quick pulled pork sandwich - it was excellent! Pauly's potatoes are my favorite, the the cornbread is pretty darn good too. Always a good experience at this hometown restaurant - looking forward to going back!

This was next to our hotel. It looked like a good place to eat. It is a fancy sandwich shop. I had a chef salad and a bowl of tomato basil soup. May wife also had a different salad. The food was good and the service was quick. There is also a store with lots of baking items in it. They also have a bakery there. The food looked good but wasn't on my diet so I did not get anything. Wife did find a tea blend she liked. I would stop here again.

I've been here several times.Everything they make is so delicious and reasonably priced. The crab cake salad is to die for. Crab and lobster reuben just the mention makes my mouth water. Then their fresh squeezed limeade is a perfect compliment to the meal . I understand they do sell burgers but I can get a burger anywhere. I live in Chicago we have hundreds of restaurants but I gladly travel over 300 miles round trip to have lunch there. I try to do it a few times a year. They only open for lunch and I understand they often sell out so get there early. I'm going again very soon.

Pleasant spot to have some good Mexican food. A real variety on the menu and reasonably priced. Enjoy!
