The best places to eat in Amish Country, Ohio

Amish Country, Ohio has no shortage of restaurants to please your palate.  When I was growing up, it was hard to find much outside of  roast beef & chicken with mashed potatoes- however, Amish Country now offers plenty of unique flavors, plus some old favorites.

While visiting Holmes County and surrounds, you’ll find a plethora of baked goods and full dinners .  It’s difficult to narrow down  the best restaurant at which to eat, so I’ve compiled my own list of the best places to eat in Amish Country, Ohio.  Here are all the details:

Der Dutchman

Walnut Creek’s staple restaurant, Der Dutchman, began in 1969 in an old hardware store.  The newer location’s dining room includes a sweeping view over a valley of farmland, making this one of the most nostalgic places to eat in Holmes County.  An attached bakery allows visitors to take home the restaurants’ baked goods and  assortment of pies.   My husband recommends the broasted chicken, while my mother recommends you leave room for the red raspberry cream pie.

Der Dutchman is located at 4967 Walnut Street, Walnut Creek, OH 44687.  The restaurant is open Monday-Saturday from 7 am- 8 pm.

Rebecca’s Bistro

If you’re visiting Amish Country as a tourist, but want to eat where the locals eat, be sure to stop by Rebecca’s Bistro.  Rebecca’s is only open for breakfast & lunch.  Customers rave about their fresh salads and homemade soups.  Outdoor dining is available during the summer, where you’ll watch Amish buggies clip-clop through the busy streets of downtown Walnut Creek.

Rebecca’s Bistro is located at 4986 Walnut Street, Walnut Creek, OH.  The restaurant is open Monday-Saturday from 8 am – 3 pm.

Olde World Bakery & Bistro

Olde World Bakery and Bistro takes it’s name from it’s approach to baking in an old-fashioned way.  Their goods are made without hydrogenated oils, box mixes, or bleached flours.  Finding gluten-free dining options in Amish Country is rare, but Olde World Bakery offers them!    This is a fun place to eat with a friend, the dining room is ample and the service is quick enough to meet on a lunch break.

Olde World Bakery is located in Berlin and Millersburg.  I recommend their downtown Millersburg location at 73 W. Jackson Street.  Hours are 8 am – 8 pm Monday- Saturday.

Boyd and Wurthmann Restaurant

Another long-standing staple of Amish Country is the Boyd and Wurthmann Restaurant.  As you drive by in downtown Berlin, you may notice the restaurant by the line out the door!  Locals have been visiting the place since it was a grocery store with a dining counter back in the 1940s, but now travelers have caught on to their affordable meals, large serving sizes, and a large variety of pies.  Believe it or not, Boyd and Wurthmann will still serve you a cup of coffee for 75 cents!  If your belly is too full for a meal, this is the place to sit at the counter for a piece of pie and a cup of coffee!

Boyd and Wurthmann is located at  4819 East Main Street, Berlin.  They are open from 5:30 am- 7:30 pm Monday – Saturday.

Bags Sports Pub

Too tired of country-style cooking or want a craft beer?    Bags Sports Pub is the place for you to eat in Amish Country!  Bags is a locally-owned pub with a full bar and daily lunch and dinner specials.  There are locations in both Millersburg and Sugarcreek, but I prefer the Millersburg location for its proximity to Millersburg Brewery, and it’s spot on the square overlooking the impressive courthouse! My favorite at Bags is the Chicken Parmesan Sandwich on a pretzel bun (pictured below), while my husband adores the Jalapeno Burger.  Whatever you choose, make sure you try the pretzel bun AND enjoy a local brew from the Millersburg Brewery.  Also, Bags IS open on Sundays!  A rarity in Holmes County.

Bags Sports Pub,  Jackson St, Millersburg – Open Sunday – Saturday 11 am – 9 pm, Friday and Saturday 11 am- 10 pm.

Quince Bakery & Cafe

Located in Kidron, Ohio, across the road from Lehman’s Hardware; Quince is another delicious stop to add to your favorite places to eat in Amish Country.  You can eat here for breakfast or lunch or pop in for a donut or cookies to take with you.  There’s a daily soup special as well as different cookie and pie selections to look forward to, so no visit will be the same.

Quince Bakery is located at 4776 Kidron Rd, Kidron.  They are open Tuesday- Saturday from 7 am – 3 pm.

    We love the fondue at Chalet in the Valley! Swiss fondue was awesome, and it’s made with Guggisburg Swiss! There were a couple other things we tried there, but now we just go and share the “appetizer”. Trust me, it’s plenty… For more than 2! It’s a cute restaurant, too, decorated just like you’d expect from the name, and the servers wear pretty authentic costumes, or they used to. Oh, the chocolate fondue. I believe one of the local chocolatiers provides the chocolate. Just go get the fondue. Both. And don’t plan to need to eat the rest of the day. 😉

      Kelly! No joke- The Chalet in the Valley was my first job! And when Brian came to the door to ask me on our first date, my dad yelled for me to come down the stairs and I had just gotten home, was wearing the poofy shirt and a pair of mesh shirts. So embarassing! But yes, I didn’t add it to the list because I haven’t been there since high school. We’ll have to go back and reminisce.

    I love the work you have done on this..It was a lot of work to visit and enjoy the area. My favorite spot is Breitenbach Winery. They have great sandwiches and awesome bar-b-que and great wines-They have a cute cafe, and in summer they have great patio dining . And they have entertainment in the summer. I haven’t checked winter.

    When we visit Amish Country we love eating at Mrs. Yoder’s Kitchen in Mt. Hope. We also always hit Heini’s Cheese Chalet for cheese & fudge and Kauffman’s Country Bakery for bread in Millersburg.

    I love Rebecca’s (the amazing salads with fruit & poppyseed dressing) and Olde World Café (chicken salad on cranberry walnut bread) but also Dutch Valley in Sugarcreek where my favorite is their meatloaf! A few notes to add about Rebecca’s is that it’s a small place that’s often very busy (but worth it) and they rotate their menus weekly.

    I grew up in Amish Country. 😉 My favorite would be a toss up between Der Dutchman or Rebeccas. They have totally different food styles, so my answer would depend on my mood when I’m asked! I do love Der Dutchman’s mashed potatoes! !

    I would love to visit Amish Country, we’ve never been. I’d definitely want to head over to Walnut Creek and try Der Dutchman. I must have the broasted chicken and red raspberry cream pie, it sounds so good!

    I’ve never been to Ohio’s Amish country but man, do some of those places sound good! If the restaurants are anything like Indiana’s Amish area, it is totally worth a visit!
