I believe this ia a branch of the same family that owns and operates two "Amish-style" Buffets in Southern Indiana and one more in Florida. Their Indiana stores have been reviewed in other Stern's publications.

For over two decades, my family and I have treated ourselves to Yoder's scrumptious food. My favorite meal consists of meatloaf, turnip greens, mashed potatoes, and a corn muffin. 99 out of a hundred times, I always get these items. Some favorites of my family are roast beef, ham w/pineapple, the rolls, and broccoli cheese casserole. The two Yoder brothers and the hard-working Mennonites are always pleasant and helpful, but busy. The restaurant has recently gone through some renovation which only adds to the charm and comfort. Prices are very reasonable, and everything is clean. No matter from what direction one is coming from.... there will be peaceful farm scenes with plenty of cows and silos to see.

If you’re driving to Florida on the I-75 corridor through Georgia or going to visit the Andersonville National Historical Site, Yoder’s Deitsch Haus is a great place to eat. It is a 13 mile drive west from the Interstate to get to Yoder’s, but the drive is along an uncongested country road past cotton fields and dairy farms. It is a nice break from the monotony of Interstate driving.

The restaurant is not in town, but it sits along the road in the middle of Mennonite farm country. It is cafeteria style and run by Mennonites, which adds to its appeal. The women wear head coverings and their clothing is simple and traditional.

Yoder's features country cooking including meatloaf, shredded roast beef, fried chicken, ham, fried shrimp, and country fried steak. It seems everyone has a different favorite, but the roast beef is probably the most popular entrée choice. Side dishes include mashed potatoes or rice, and of course southern vegetables including creamed corn, turnip greens, fried okra, vegetable casseroles, spiced apples, and green beans.

Slices of pie are the featured dessert. Coconut cream, pecan, or peanut butter cream are some of the most popular pie choices. But there are others as well and sometimes slices of cake.

Or take your dessert with you on the road from the bakery on the side of Yoder’s, which sells cakes, pies, cinnamon rolls, brownies with or without nuts, snickerdoodles, etc. There is also a gift shop in a separate building with jams, honey, quilts, crafts, and other county knick knacks.

Yoder’s sometimes closes unexpectedly for the day if the owners have a wedding or death in the family. It is normally closed during the Thanksgiving weekend and on Good Friday. And they usually take a holiday vacation from Christmas until sometime in early January. So it is always a good idea to call ahead to make sure that Yoder’s will be open. Note: On Wednesday, Yoder’s is open for lunch only. It is closed on Sunday and Monday.

My family is Pennsylvania "Dutch" and has mennonite roots. Even though I was raised in the south, several weeks every summer I would visit and stay with relatives in "Dutch" country Pennsylvania. Yoder's reminds me of being at my grandmother's and her delicious cooking. The country store reminds me of just being in Pennsylvania and brings back tons of memories. Awesome place and will always be one of my favorites.

The atmosphere is down-home. Love the food and service. The bakery is really good! Love to sit on the porch and rock and chat casually. Our families go down for a dinner about every two months. Gift store is nice, too.

Yoder's is an experience, serving fantastic, simple, wonderful down-home cooking in a very comfortable restaurant that feels like a picnic. They are family-owned and family-staffed, by pleasant people who provide excellence service. My tea glass was never empty.

Choices on the line include chicken, pot roast, fish, and many more items, making decisions difficult. The desserts are divine: pudding, cakes, and pie, oh my! Luckily for my family of nine, on a recent visit, we could share all of the perfectly tempting desserts.

Prices are fantastic! After our delicious meal we walked over to their gift shop and purchased a hand-crafted gazebo. It's a constant reminder of the great experience and food that we had at Yoder's.

I have been eating for several years at Yoder's in Montezuma, GA. I've been traveling from metro Washington, DC to attend the annual living history program at Andersonville NHP, GA.

This type of cooking makes me homesick, since I also go to the Pennsylvania Dutch Country quite a bit to ride the Strasburg Railroad. When I return later this year, I will also return to eat at Yoder's. The food and drink are excellent. The cafeteria atmosphere may rub some people the wrong way but that's okay with me. The food looks tempting in their serving trays. The waitstaff and management are very friendly. This is a tradition in waiting for anyone traveling through southwest-central Georgia. The only draw back is they aren't open on Sunday.

Yoder's forever !
