Excellent homestyle food

Wanted to take an out of town guest to dinner there it was really good as usual. To avoid the wait we ate in the bar which was fine. Neat to read about the history of the place. Best fried chicken around.

It is a amazing they can serve as many people as they can. It is a unique experience with Average to good food. Family style dining. Comfort Food. Everytime I have been there, it was very crowded. I am not sure if the wait is worth it.

This restaurant specializes in family style meals and they do a great job. Their fried chicken, chicken livers, ham, roast beef, and coleslaw are on my list of personal favorites. Whether you just need casual dining or to book a room for a party,this is the place to go!

Called early and was told no reservations taken. When I got there several people had reservation. I asked how long it would be and was told they couldnt tell me. Then when we did get a table it took 34 minutes to bring the drink order. A table came in after us got drinks and food before us. A table... More

Indiana's Oldest Restaurant...Wonderful family style restaurant with some of my favorite comfort foods. Fried chicken, catfish, ham, and roast beef (my favorite) is just as good as it gets anywhere! May want to make reservations and be sure to bring cash.

Family birthday celebration on a busy Saturday night. Had made reservations 5:00 and table for 10 was ready upon arrival. This place has always been THE go to restaurant for family style dining. Regularly win local paper awards for best fried chicken. I don't get it. Ordering process was confusing as no menus were provided and meat choices were recited.... More

Tastiest fried chicken available anywhere. Highly recommend the Family Style dining. Several meat dish options (each person can pick their own option) with unlimited vegetables all served in large bowls. They will refill until you stop eating. If you like vinegar style cole slaw, their's is unmatched. I eat it by the plate full. Ask for the German fries, again,... More

The Log Inn is the go-to place for fried chicken and home-style cooking. You won't leave hungry, and you won't leave dissatisfied! Be prepared to wait for a table; it's always busy due to its popularity.
