Simple & rustic restaurant that definitely did dazzle our tastebuds by way of down-home cooking goodness.....
As you enjoy a ride through the country on the rural rolling hills, you will definitely have to stop into The New Dutch Country Restaurant located on Kinsman Road (RT 87) just east of Burton but west of Middlefield, Ohio. The areas’ back-setting is so beautiful. There is plenty of parking. The building & interior are well kempt; it’s just a casual cracker-barrel throwback. It would easily accommodate large groups, families, friends, or couples seeking great home-style cookin’!!
Dinner rolls were made fresh & served with cinnamon butter, which was amazingly sweet & understated. Their French Onion Soup was served in the apropos mini crock; the broth was full of flavor with a fine balance of ingredients - croutons, mozzarella, & onions. We tried the Weinerschnitzel based on recommendations from other Yelpers; it was breaded & cooked to an appetizing perfection, then graciously served with three (3) sides. We chose the Pasta Salad, which was a small splendor in itself. We also chose their heavily touted real Mashed Potatoes, gravy, & rounded off with the Homemade Stuffing that I believe is baked. This self-selected platter could have been great with any combination of sides, but for my preferences, this was a throwback to a family-style country sit-down dinner.
The renowned burgers were fresh, large, seasoned & tasty, as a suggestion: 1/4 lb. option would compliment well with the available 1/2 lb. & 1 pound offerings. The cucumber sauce on the “Garrett Burger” had a creamy Italian zing to it. The children’s portion were huge, leaving plenty of leftovers for when the kids settle down & get the munchies. I would guess the children’s Cheeseburger was about 1/4 lb. served with fresh-cut fries. The kids’ Spaghetti with Meatball had flair. I might have these homemade pie titles wrong, “yummier” & “yummiest” are the fitting descriptors in our humble opinions (AKA: Apple Crumb Pie - better than most & Oreo Cream Pie - winner by a 3 to 4 vote of surpassing even the most delicious Apple Crumb).
We were seated immediately. Scarlett was smiling & joyful, just an excellent server. She kept our drinks refreshed. Note: there is no Sunday liquor sales, but The New Dutch Country Restaurant had a decent selection of bottled beers, several that you don’t see too often. Scarlett made sure our orders were right, food was served quickly, presentation of the food was on point, & all special requests fulfilled. We mention this sincerely; Scarlett was that rare server that enhances your whole dining experience with her energy & attitude (Perfect 10 on her follow through & rotation).
Affordability is remarkable for a family of four (4) with several extras, including desserts, plus a generous gratuity, we escaped for about $55 - inexplicably unbeatable quality for that price.
We literally told each other that we needed to move out here for the outdoor recreation, sights & views, as well as to wear out our welcome at The New Dutch Country Restaurant - we want to adventure through their whole menu!!!
A homey, comfortable place with really good food and good prices. Breakfasts are amazing; hearty and delicious .... Dinner is a great value with affordable luxuries like prime rib and shrimp .... Wine and beer selection seems a bit limited but adequate .... And did I mention dessert? Homemade Amish pies are a specialty. Yum! The staff is friendly, and the guests are good, regular folks. It's one of our favorites.
