As Indiana’s largest restaurant (with 1,100 seats!), we’re excited to offer a variety of dining options for our guests...
Regardless of the selection you make, our polished casual atmosphere helps you relax and celebrate; even if the occasion you’re celebrating is simply time and a meal shared together.
With 5 menu pages filled with savory selections, choose a garden fresh salad, chicken and noodles, a burger or an Indiana speciality; a lightly breaded pork tenderloin.

Far and wide, our family-style dining is what we've become best known for. Using genuine Amish recipes passed down through the generations create old-fashioned family traditions in the 21st Century. No visitor to Northern Indiana should miss the delectable home style cooking that awaits their discovery.
Our family-style dinners come complete with your choice of beverage and a generous wedge of pie for dessert. (We offer 31 varieties of pie in our restaurant and whole pies are also available to purchase from our home-style bakery just down the hall from our restaurant.)
We also serve satisfying breakfasts to start your day with all the comfort foods you most enjoy.
All items on our lunch and dinner menus are available for carry-out, also. This is ideal for today’s family on the go because it allows an opportunity to share a delicious meal together as a family in the comfort of their own home.
Please bring the entire family to enjoy the Essenhaus experience...
Feel free to view our on-line menus prior to your visit, but understand that prices and items are subject to change. As always, if you have specific questions or concerns, we're just a phone call away.
