Cash only, great food, ok service, they handle big parties fairly well. It's neat to see once every decade or so, kind of like a vintage flash back type thing. Sorry all you hard core Warrenton-ites but it's not Top 10.

Went to the Log Inn recently to celebrate - nothing special, my wife, daughter, and I just enjoy the food at the Log Inn. They serve some of the best fried chicken in southern Indiana and service is always attentive. Eating family style is the way to go at the restaurant. Choose between fried chicken, ham steak, or roast beef... More

My family has celebrated many events at The Log Inn as well as just dining there for fun. The Log Inn is north of Evansville and was a stop for travelers in the 1800s. Abraham Lincoln stopped there. Much of the building is still the original log with some newer additions. How can I describe the food? Amazing. I have... More

Nice people, simple basic no-frills American food. Good when you want something uncomplicated, especially if you have finnicky eaters in the family who are not in the mood to experiment with new dishes or flavors. Known for fried chicken. Lots of large families and grandparents when we were there. Fantastic selection of pies. Very crowded on a Saturday evening -... More

Best fried chicken and family style meals make a great place for dinner! Good friendly service and generous portions. If it's just 2 of you, a la carte sides are enough for 2 and it costs less than family style. They do not take credit cards but there is an ATM on site.

We went with a group of people and got the family style dinner. It was awesome! The corn and mashed potatoes were prepared perfectly. Living near south Saint Petersburg, I am used to eating good fried chicken and the Log Inn's definitely met my expectations for quality and flavor. I would recommend this restaurant without reservation.

Great food served family style if you wish. The Log Inn has a long history. It is said that Abraham Lincoln spoke at the Log Inn. They are famous for their fried chicken and their sweet and sour cole slaw is second to none. I just got home from a business meeting their and we served more food than we... More

Family style dinner served hot - the food is brought to your table in large portions so that each member of your party can serve themselves The resturaunt is usually packed and seating is close but the atmosphere is warm lively If you don't have a party of 4 or more the family style dinner is not for you But...

One of my favorite places to eat. Great fried chicken. Family style for at least 4 people or menu. Alcohol available. Food takes Awile to get but worth the wait.
