The sign gives you an idea of the offerings in the area along highway 39. This sign was a few miles west of Walnut Creek and east of Berlin.

A warm welcome and friendly people will greet you at the DER DUTCHMAN in Walnut Creek. While you delight in their food, you can enjoy the picturesque view of the Genza Bottom, a beautiful Amish farming valley. After dinner, relax on their porch and rock on a locally made hickory rocker.
Their menu features a wide variety of dinners. For the family with a hearty appetite, try Der Dutchman's family style dinners of ham, turkey, pan fried chicken or roast beef. The dinners include real mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, old-fashioned stuffing, plus an extensive salad bar. Loaves of warm homemade bread, pie and a beverage complete your meal.
Their banquet facilities can accommodate groups of 20 to 525. Bus tour groups are welcome.
Favorite Dish: Hans and I both had the Amish Country Sampler. The "Sampler" includes real mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing, green beans or creamed corn, homemade bread and salad bar. Choose between chicken, roast beef, ham or turkey. Two meats was $10.69. Three meats add $1.89.
Everything was absolutely delicious, but I must admit that we ate too much.
But oh, "Dat vas sooooo gut!".

In Amish Country, traffic habits are different from the ordinary. Travellers need to be alert and cautious and watch for the SLOW-MOVING HORSE & BUGGY. Also many Amish ride bicycles and walk along the side of roads. Reduced speed and keeping a safe distance are important for safety. Respecting the beliefs and practices of the Amish is a very important part of a trip to the area. The Amish people, though friendly and congenial, prefer not to be photographed so please do not ask them to pose for photographs.
