We were recommended to THE LOG INN by so many of the locals. It was a great experience. The fried chicken was the best we ever had. The slaw was delicious and probably the healthiest thing they serve! We made sure to save room for pie which was also terrific. It was build in 1825 as a stage... read more

This restaurant is old, Abraham Lincoln, apparently ate there on the Stage Coach Trail, We noticed that you could make reservations, this is a very rural area, you would never Dream that you would need a reservation. We drove to the restaurant a short distance from our Hotel, we went around a curve in a residential area it looked like... More

Very good food but poor service. We didn't mind waiting to be seated but once seated we wanted another 20 minutes to get our drinks and to place our order. We will be back though.

The food was great but the woman that seated us didn't act like she wanted to be there. Very grumpy. We've ate there twice this month and both times we got a grumpy waitress. Even tho she knew we were getting the family style. I asked her for a menu and she rolled her eyes at me. All 6 of... More

You cannot find better home style meals than the Log Inn. Their fried chicken is the best of any I've ever tasted and the fish is also great. If those aren't your tast, toucan get roast beef or ham. Sides of green beans, slaw, mashed potatoes and corn keep coming as you keep eating. Log Inn is a legend around... More

This historic place, built in 1825, is the place if you're craving for country-style fried chicken, catfish, country ham, roast beef, etc. plus large platters of corn, mashed potatoes and gravy, and slaw. What a feast!

This is an excellent family style restaurant. You order your meat and then they bring out the sides family style. The sides continue to come out until you are finished. I wish I had saved room for the delicious looking desserts. The price was very good for all the food you got.

The are best known for fried chicken but I think they have the best catfish filet that I have ever had! They don't offer catfish on sat because they need all fryers for fried chicken. They are known for president Lincoln visiting. Family owned!

Be ready to wait a bit but it was worth it. Also, bring cash. No debit or credit. They do have an ATM but you have to find it through the crowd of people. The fried chicken was excellent. Everything else was basic but good. Would definitely recommend just for the chicken and a little history too
