Amazing home cooked food! Exceptional wait staff and freindly hometown atmosphere. Always a pleasant experience. You have to try the pie while you are there.

We were in Shipshewana for 2 days and decided to try this local restaurant for Lunch. We reviewed the menu and decided to try the Daily Special (Chicken Pot Pie). It was filling, but also disappointing. Lots of bread and little filling. Also tried the Lemon Pie (really tart and tasty). Service was fine and we would try this again... More

We were only in a long line for 10 minutes. The food was worth the wait. Our waitress was very kind, and paid attention to all of our requests.

There was a line when we arrived but it moved quickly. Over 40 min from time we were seated to time food arrived. 3 tables seated after us were served before us. Food was cold when it was served.

Limited hours to match flea market. Great place to get out of the heat and grab a meal or snack. The line to get seated was long but went fairly quickly. Our wait was about 20 minutes. But once we ordered it didn't take long to get our food. I can't speak for the menu in detail, but I had... More

We used to eat there often, but the last couple of times we have eaten there we were disappointed. The biscuts and gravy were not good. Seem like it was hamburger, not sausage. Also a little high priced for what you get.

We love the auction restaurant.....the ladies are so pleasant and the food has always been superb. Your coffee cup does not have time to be empty because of the great service from servers.

Avoid this restaurant at all costs! The "hostess" seemed annoyed she had to stop gossiping in order to seat us. Then, when we got up to leave, I asked for a receipt from said "hostess"/cashier, and you would have thought the hateful woman would oblige, but instead she was nasty & rude. I can't be the only person in the... More
