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

Fried chicken - yum!

We waited for quite awhile on a busy Saturday to be seated in this huge restaurant. It was worth it. Two of us had the fried chicken, one had a soup/sandwich combo and the other had meatloaf. The meatloaf was 'okay', but not exceptional, but that's one of those things that involves personal preference. The rest of us were totally delighted with our meals. The only regret was that we were too full for dessert!

Service was excellent.

The chicken is highly rated and will not let you down. Also had the mashed potatoes and carrots. The meal was perfect. No shortage of portions here. We ate during a crowded time and the staff did a great job keeping the lines moving. The wait was short.

Chicken is very good, but sides are run of the mill food service variety. Baked good from the bakery are all fresh and very good.

We did family style buffet. It comes with all you can eat chicken, mash potatoes, stuffing ,green beans, salad ,pie and pop. I chose the French dressing for my salad and wanted to eat nothing but dressing. It is soooo good! We also did the ham for $1.00 more, it came shredded and was delicious. Everything was soo good! Our waiter and hostess staff was extremely friendly and helpful. After lunch we went up to the bakery bought salad dressing and peanut butter.
