Der Dutchman, Walnut Creek OH

There are many imitators, but only one Der Dutchman Amish restaurant. Well, okay, actually, there are five. This past weekend, the lovely Robin and I enjoyed a meal at the Walnut Creek, Ohio, location (there are also Der Dutchman restaurants in Sugarcreek, Plain City, and Bellville, Ohio, and even one in Sarasota, Florida.
It was not our first visit to Der Dutchman, but it has been a few years, I think. And we were not disappointed. We were graciously seated at a window table and thoroughly the view of the rolling farm country beyond the restaurant (in the general area where, by the way, my great-great grandfather once lived).
Through a herculean exercise of the will, we ordered from the menu rather than taking advantage of the hot-and-cold buffet. I had to have the broasted chicken (with mashed potatoes and noodles). Three pieces of dark meat. Thank GOD for chicken; didn't have to do it but he did!
We couldn't decide on a single dessert so we ordered a sampler of Dutch Apple pie, peach pie, and pumpkin pie (note to self: the pumpkin pie served in Ohio's Amish country is a bit different, and not what Robin would call her favorite).
On the way out, we noted the fairly uniform assortment of hats and oats in the entry way. I was sorely tempted to switch them around but I resisted.

Der Dutchman is located at 4967 Walnut Street in scenic Walnut Creek, Ohio.
