Description: When the newly built Blue Gate Restaurant & Bakery opened it doors on August 4th, 2001 in Shipshewana, the entire town was invited over for dinner. As one of Indiana's largest restaurants, the Blue Gate comfortably seats 600 (more than the town's population). Built to reflect the surrounding community, the Blue Gate resembles a rambling white farmhouse, similar to those that dot the surrounding Amish coutnryside.An award winning restaurant serving a world famous Family-style meal that features pressure fried chicken and 3 other meats, real mashed potatoes, Amish noodles, plus lots of other sides and 25 varieties of pies to choose from

“Pork Chops”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 via mobile

We always stop at Blue Gate when we are in town. We really enjoyed the Pork Chop dinner but this time they were not that great they changed the way they are cooked. We prefer the old way they were so good you could cut them with a fork, please bring back the way you used to cook them

“Another Delicious Meal!”
Reviewed July 14, 2014 via mobile

We have been going to Blue Gate for a number of years as a part of our aunt/cousin reunion. We've ordered both family style and off the menu. We've enjoyed all the meals we've had. The staff is friendly. The family style has been comparable to a meal at an Amish women's house. Depending on the time you go, you may have to wait for a bit. Be sure to save room for pie!

“Excellent time”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We loved this restaurant!! When we entered, there was a live piano player at the piano. The service was awesome, our server, Xander made sure all of our needs were met and exceeded. I couldn't wait to tell family of this restaurant and told them the next time they are in Shipshewana to be sure to go beyond the flea market and eat here. They have such an awesome gift shop on the lower level. I can't say enough nice things about this restaurant.

“Excellent food but a little pricey”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

Great menu choices and the food is really good. Broasted chicken is excellent. This place is a little more expensive the some others in the area. Great bakery and they offer various types of shows.
