We traveled all the way from Mississippi to attend the Wednesday Antique Auction. It was worth the trip. The auction is very well run, every detail has been though of. This day they had 7 auctioneers going at one time. Good place to buy to bring back to your store. We bought half a truck load.

My husband and I came for lunch. I ordered the tenderloin sandwich and fries. The tenderloin was VERY greasy and the fries were cold. The service is inadequate. My husband had to wait a long time to get more water. We will not be coming back.

Use to always make the auction restaurant our 1st stop when we came to shipshewana. We were there in December. Couldn't believe the change. The service was bad, kept getting our order wrong. The food was nothing like we were use to. I found out there are new people working there, new wait staff, cashier, etc. by the way the... More

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

With Amish home-style cooking, the Auction Restaurant is ready to serve any hungry bargain hunter. Located on State Road 5 by the main entrance to the Flea Market, it's a great place to grab a bite to eat or simply take a break with a piece of fresh pie!
