The original Auction Restaurant started in 1930 inside George Curtis’s garage (the original owner of the auction). It was operated by the ladies of the Methodist Church until 1940, when Curtis asked Milo and Ruth Miller, who were then catering farm sales, if they would be interested in taking over the operation. Each day, the Millers backed Mr. Curtis’s automobile out of the garage, swept the floor and set up the restaurant equipment and gas stove. The vegetables came from Mrs. Miller’s garden, and the pie came from her oven at home. She even made homemade catsup to go on the 20 cent hamburgers.

In 1950, a new Auction Restaurant was built to seat 50-60 people as the auction and flea market grew in popularity. The restaurant was re-done again in 1981, and has served hungry visitors from all across the country.

Today, the Shipshewana Auction Restaurant features a delicious menu that will delight your tastebuds.
