The building was built in the early 1900’s and opened as a gas station. In the 1940’s, the Chesterton family began serving food and it evolved into a full service restaurant. We are located in the quaint town of Fowler off of US Hwy #52 in northwest Indiana.
Before I-65 was built, in the late 60’s, every car travelling between Chicago and Indianapolis had to go through the town of Fowler and right in front of the restaurant. Located 100 miles south of Chicago and 100 miles north of Indianapolis….it quickly acquired its name.
Over the past 20 years, proprietors John and Julie Hoskins have upgraded the restaurant, while at the same time, keeping the small town, friendly atmosphere intact. There is a fully stocked bar while also offering a separate family dining room. Great food fills the menu with daily lunch specials, dinner entrees, sandwiches and prime rib on weekend evenings. Of course, fresh-cut angus steaks, ribs and bone-in pork chops round out our large menu.
