Der Dutchman, one of the most celebrated restaurants in Sarasota, is about a 60-minute drive from downtown Tampa. According to USA Today, and myriad other outlets such as ESPN, Yahoo News, and Only In Your State, it is worth the trip over the Skyway Bridge.

“Situated in Pinecraft, an Amish neighborhood in Sarasota, Der Dutchman is a popular restaurant offering a daily buffet that combines quantity and quality,” writes USA Today’s editors. “Diners can enjoy a wide variety of options, including their unique dish of noodles over mashed potatoes.”
