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

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.

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

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!

Amazing home cooked food in the heart of Amish country. Had the breakfast buffet and it was fantastic. Thick smoked bacon, homemade sausage patties, incredible homemade biscuits with sausage gravy. A definite gem. Halfway between Arthur and Arcola on Rt 133 in Chesterville. Don't forget to hit the meat and cheese market around the corner.

We just happened upon this wonderful delight looking around Amish Country. Very busy, families galore. Pumpkins pumpkins pumpkins, never did find "The Great Pumpkin" but, there were plenty of pumpkins, and activities. We enjoyed reading the history of this farm, and all about pumpkins. This place is educational, fun, picturesque, and very community oriented. Even though we could not buy any pumpkins, I would highly recommend this place to get your pumpkins and other goodies. This is really a great way to spend a day in the fall and for Halloween. We also enjoyed walking through the decorated Halloween barn. We opted out of the corn maze and hay ride. Looked like it was lots of fun, but, you did have to pay extra. We thought this should be included in the price of admission. No complaints though.

You won't be disappointed visiting this bar restaurant when you visit Arthur. The food was outstanding in the service is always great. They always have a couple microbrews on tap along with all the other regular beer. The bartender is super cool also.

This is a recent incarnation of a restaurant that specialized in Amish-style fried chicken, and that was the aroma that struck us as we walked in. I was hungry, my wife not so much. I ordered chicken-fried steak, she ordered chicken noodle soup. Hers was inedible, never saw chicken noodle with a dark broth and an awful taste, My chicken fried steak was tough and tasteless, the mashed potatoes runny and the cole slaw tasty but not well shredded.On the positive side, the Arnold Palmer was one of the best I've had and the service was friendly, welcoming and helpful.
