A family friend who lives in the area recommended Der Dutchman & I'm so glad she did! The buffet was excellent & reasonably priced. Took several slices of pie to go & they were excellent as well. This place is a must!

A good value meal served by courteous, clean staff. The food isn't gourmet, but it is good. It's the kind of meals my mom would make. Nice atmosphere. The gift shop upstairs is fun to visit.
