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

Wonderful chicken. Can select family style or order off the menu. Family style includes mashed potatoes, dressing, gravy, green beans, a salad, bread and a desert. Option to select more than one meat.

This restaurant always seems to be busy, but we did not have to wait long to be seated. After being seated we immediately received glasses of water and a small loaf of fresh bread. I had planned on ordering just a sandwich, but noticed that entrees were about the same price. So, I order a fried chicken dinner (4 pcs) with coleslaw and steamed vegetables. The chicken portions were very large with tasty breading. My partner had the roast beef (a Blue Gate specialty) with toss salad and noodles. The meals were very delicious. It's also a good idea to check out the excellent bakery.

Big restaurant, so wait for a table was not too long. After seating us, we were immediately served home made bread with the house peanut butter and apple butter.
For lunch, we had the fish & chips, and also the platter where there was fried chicken, pork, and beef. Cole slaw was also served with the meals. We enjoyed our food very much. The restaurant was filled with customers and when I had asked locals where they suggest for food, Blue Gate's name came up often. Glad we ate there.

The food was great and plenty. We stopped by the bakery and bought too many goodies. Their french dressing used in the resturant is also available in the bakery. I could eat salads every day using this.

We enjoyed the food at the Blue Gate Restaurant. My husband and I ate at the buffet. The food was very good. They also have family style or you can order from the menu. The fried chicken is very good.
