The place only had 2 other couples and the ladies working spent more time sitting and talking then they did working. We Thought since they were close we would visit, bad idea. I would reccomend driving down the road rather than eating here

This is a typical market cafè but operated by the Amish people so the service is very friendly and efficient and the food good quality. If you're at the auction or market then be sure to drop in.

Great food and Great Service. The buffet, albeit not huge for lunch, was yummy and tasty with a lot of Amish - style meal options and the service was friendly and happy.

We walked over from the campground late in the evening for pie. As it was late in the day, they were out of the pie we would have ordered, but the pies we got were excellent. Food being brought out to others looked delicious.

Unusual restaurant, in that it is only open doing the flea market & auction days. I think only Tuesday, Wednesday, & Friday. Food was good. Nothing out of this world but worth eating. Pie was very good, pecan. Staff was helpful. No wait. Clean. Right...More

With Amish home-style cooking, the Auction Restaurant is ready to serve any hungry bargain hunter. Located on State Road 5 by the main entrance to the Flea Market, it's a great place to grab a bite to eat or simply take a break with a piece of fresh pie!
