Destination, Indiana Grown

The Eshelman family (Pete, Alice, and Tim) are the founders and owners of Joseph Decuis (pronounced day-QUEEZ).

Joseph Decuis is a Farm to Fork fine dining Restaurant open for dinner with casual lunches served at the Emporium next door. Much of the food served, is grown on the family farm 6 miles away. On the farm they raise Wagyu beef cattle, free range hens, Dixie Rainbow and Naked Neck chickens, Mangalitza pigs, goats, sheep, turkeys, & fresh produce such as herbs and vegetables for their Restaurant and Emporium.

The restaurant name is in honor of their ancestor, who they credit the family’s tradition of fine dining. In 1993, the Eshelman family purchased an old bank building. In 1996 it was converted into a private dining facility. Joseph Decuis opened to the public in 2000. Guests can enjoy world-class dining, special events at the restaurant or on our farm, and can book overnight stays at the Inn in Roanoke or our Bed & Breakfast on the Farm.

The Joseph Decuis “Farm to Table” experience is truly a family passion. The Eshelmans are very involved in the day-to-day activities of the business as well as their local community. Joseph Decuis Wagyu Farm — “A Farm Dressed in a Tuxedo”

Joseph Decuis has become one of Indiana’s most highly awarded restaurants. It has consistently earned the “Best of Award of Excellence” by Wine Spectator, AAA’s Four Diamond Award, and voted Indiana’s #1 Restaurant (and one of the Top 50 in the United States) by Open Table diners.
