After Mother’s Day we will no longer be open on Sundays except for Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day and the first four Sundays of December for all your church get together. We will also do our Thanksgiving buffet.
We will still offer private parties on Sundays for groups over 40 where you can share a meal get-togethers to celebrate anniversaries or birthdays in a space that will allow you to have an open house after your meal. The buffet will not be as large as the regular Sunday buffet was, but you will have 1 salad, 2 entrees, a potato and 2 vegetables, our homemade yeast rolls and 2 desserts. You will also be allowed to bring in your own cake and have an area to set up photographs. The buffet will be $14.00 a person + tax and tip; including coffee, tea or lemonade. Children under 3 are free and children between 4 & 8 will be half price. We have enjoyed serving you and hope you will think of us for your special occasions.
Maxim is located directly behind The Fiddlers Three and has an entrance on the south side of the building. Parking is available at Maxim and we are handicap accessible.
The planning and building of this structure took almost five years. All beams are authentic and all fancy woodwork, display cases and cabinets were manufactured on the premisies by the proprietor William Dugan and his able assistant, Steve Lower. The beautiful leaded glass windows and doors, consisting of over 1700 pieces of glass, were also constructed here by these same two craftsmen.
The large chimney in the main dining room starts six feet below floor level and extends forty feet into the air. It weighs nearly one hundred tons and has fireplaces both upstairs and down.
The fireplaces were built by Harley Q. Brown, Master Mason of Shelbyville, Indiana. Bricks used in the lower fireplace are over one hundred years old and were taken from the Odd fellows Hall in St. Paul, Indiana. The mantel is a one hundred forty eight year old hewn beam from Shelby County.
We extend to you the most gracious welcome to come dine with us. You can be assured you will be served amicably and attentively.
We promise we will strive to bring you the finest food, beverages and dining pleasure…to make The Fiddlers Three one of the most unique places to dine in Indiana.
