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:
Restaurants in Walnut Creek, Ohio
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 an assortment of pies. My husband recommends the broasted chicken and my mother recommends you leave room in your stomach 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.
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.

Restaurants in Berlin, Ohio
Olde World Bakery and Bistro takes its name from its 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.

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 99 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.
Restaurants in Millersburg, Ohio
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. 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.
Chalet in the Valley
*Chalet in the Valley is currently closed. Call ahead before visiting: 330-893-2550.*
Chalet in the Valley is conveniently located on the campus of Guggisberg Cheese in the idyllic Doughty Valley. The restaurant offers German & Swiss delights like fondue and wiener schnitzel, but they also have a variety of American dishes. My favorite part of this restaurant is the experience, atmosphere, and the views from the dining room.
What should you order? Anything that’s covered in Guggisberg’s award-winning Swiss cheese.
Chalet in the Valley is located at: 5060 OH-557, Millersburg, OH 44654
Millersburg Brewing Company
The name is deceiving because this is not just a brewery! Millersburg Brewing has recently expanded to offer a full menu during their business hours Tuesday-Sundays in downtown Millersburg. This is now my favorite restaurant in Millersburg!
The buffalo cauliflower is an appetizer you’ll drool over, and the Bucking Cheeseburger is so good! Millersburg Brewing even offers a kids’ menu.
You can’t leave a brewery without trying a beer, right? I love the French Ridge IPA.
Millersburg Brewing is located at: 60 E. Jackson St, Millersburg, OH.
