Comfort Food at Its Best
Located in the center of Walnut Creek, Der Dutchman is a special destination for both townsfolk and tourists.
Locals catch up over coffee at cozy tables by the fireside. Generations from far and wide gather in our banquet rooms to celebrate family milestones. Out-of-town visitors linger in the rocking chairs on our front porch to hear the clip-clop of buggies passing by and catch a glimpse of daily life in our beautiful Amish farming valley. And everyone comes for the food!
Our Amish kitchen cooking is the No. 1 reason generations of visitors make the trip to Der Dutchman every year. But our hilltop location and spectacular view come in a close second. Walnut Creek is one of the most picturesque places in the Midwest, and we're blessed to be in the perfect spot to see it in all its glory. The wall of windows that curves around our spacious dining room provides a breathtaking, five-mile panoramic view of Goose Bottom Valley and the farmsteads tucked into its hillsides.
"Nau ess du!" (Now eat!)
The cooks in our kitchen know that much of the comfort in "comfort food" comes from the way it is prepared, so they use time-honored methods often learned at the elbow of a mother or a grandmother.
Breakfast choices include still-warm cinnamon rolls, fluffy buttermilk hotcakes, homemade biscuits, and golden slices of fried mush with sausage gravy or syrup.
Lunch and dinner feature simple, straightforward classics—chicken, country-cured ham, roast beef and turkey, and chicken potpie. Hearty side dishes include real mashed potatoes, homemade egg noodles, and the freshest-tasting creamed corn you'll ever have the good fortune to eat.
The salad bar at Der Dutchman is as bountiful as a kitchen garden and as colorful as a quilt. Rows of fresh vegetables, fruits, prepared salads, and regional specialties are constantly refilled and refreshed. Just make sure to save room for dessert!
