My wife and I ate at Essenhaus a couple of years ago while visiting the Shipshawana, Indiana, Amish area and were very pleased.
On this visit, we choice the buffet rather than "menu dining." Big mistake. After going to the salad bar which was great, I couldn't wait to attack the buffet. I should have waited.
They offered three entrees, Baked Steak, Roast Beef and Broasted Chicken, so I tried a little of each. The two beef dishes stayed on my plate after one small bite of each, and the chicken was so-so.
They offered several vegetables. I tried the cooked carrots that looked like they could have been washed a little more carefully, green beans with little bacon bits and corn. The carrots and beans were way overcooked; the corn was OK.
If we go back, I'd definitely choose menu dining, and I encourage others to do the same.
