Boyd & Wurthmann Restaurant's humble beginnings...
Boyd & Wurthmann Restaurant still serves a 75¢ cup of coffee and is one of the oldest established
businesses in Berlin, Ohio.
Many locals equate the Boyd & Wurthmann restaurant with the Berlin they
once knew: a small, one-horse town. The restaurant was a gathering place for locals to catch up on the
latest news over a cup of coffee, discuss business deals while trying the daily special or just stop by for
one of Bryl Wurthmann's famous homemade pies. The locals have always used the round table in the
corner for a rotating gathering spot. Since its beginnings, Boyd and Wurthmann has continued to draw
crowds of both locals and visitors with the promise of not only mouth-watering pie, but also a
The restaurant began as a grocery market, known as Hummel's Market, in 1938 and
was run for 7 years by Paul & Mary Hummel. It was then owned and operated by Herman Wurthmanns
and Dale Boyds for 40 years and soon became know as Boyd and Wurthmann. In the 40's, they put a
counter in to seat people and began serving sandwiches as well as groceries. The original, green counter
built in the 40's with seating for 9 is still a local favorite and in use today at our establishment. In the
50's, the demand for more restaurant services increased so they separated the market from the
restaurant and began to serve breakfast and lunch. Their specialty was homemade pie and good Amish
style cooking. For nearly 40 years, Byrl Wurthmann would come in early and bake fresh all the pies that
were served each day. Currently you can expect 15-20 different pies to choose from depending on what
fruit is in season.
The restaurant soon became the place locals would gather for good food and a chance
to catch up with everyone on the local news. In the 80's, the combination of good food & the
hometown atmosphere began to draw tourists to the restaurant. They began to expand the seating
area; today we have a counter, 22 tables, 5 booths, and 1 round table which is the local spot. The
restaurant went through various owners until it was purchased by the Dennis Mullet Family in 2004.
Today we are blessed to have the opportunity to serve many of the 4 million tourists that travel through
Holmes County every year. Our Amish cooks do a great job of making home-style specials daily, plus a
large variety of homemade pies. We, as the Mullet family are committed to bringing our customers the
best of home cooking and a pleasant dining experience.
