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

I have eaten here several times and the food is always outstanding. The service is excellent. and priced is fair. The atmosphere is pleasing as it was an old stagecoach stop in the late 1800's. A must stop if traveling in SW Indiana.

Servers do great job handling large groups. Some entees are tasty, suchas fried chicken or grilled ham. Some entees are to be avoided such as heat and eat roast beef. Many of the side dishes are canned or instant and lack homestyle flavor. The Log Inn is not a deal or a place I like to dine, The quality of... More

I love this place. I have never had a bad meal here. I love their French dressing. For their salads. I think that every cut of meat has a different flavor. I personally love the Ribeye. Everyone that we have come into contact with has been very friendly and helpful.

This Indiana's oldest restaurant. It was a stopping point for stage coaches going to St Louis, Chicago or other places. According to them Abraham Lincoln dined there. The decor is of a colonial time cabin with squeaky floors and old pictures on the wall. The food is.good, typical home cooking and the pies are delucious. Only thing I don't like... More

Wow this place is Fabulous and the food is excellent. It is always crowded so my husband and I feel like we have to get there right at 4 PM when the restaurant opens up for the evening. The fried chicken is out of this world and the ham is juicy and so very tender. All the food is served... More

Absolutely in love with this place. It's a diamond in the rough. The decorations set the atmosphere and it's great. The food is fine and the service is always good!

It's hard to beat a family night out to this place. The fried chicken is ridiculously good. I personally love the cole slaw. Most places that serve cole slaw mess it up but I could almost stuff myself on this alone. I don't eat the pies but my family does and think they are great. They serve everything family style...

An original family style down home restaurant which oozes character spanning nearly two centuries. Considered the standard by which all other fried chicken is measured. Wonderful for family get togethers.
