Great Family Style Dining

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... read more

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.

I have been going to the Log Inn for a number of years and to this day, never been disappointed with their country, family style service, selection of entrée meats, and variety of side dishes! If you are looking for food that is akin to what Grandma had when you visited years ago, then this restaurant will fit the bill.... More

I've never tried the other meat choices because the fried chicken is so good. Side dishes of cole slaw, green beans, corn, mashed potatoes, gravy and peas upon request are all wonderful. Serving dishes are refilled as needed as well. I always intend to eat sensibly when I go here, but how often do you get to have that home... More

Perfect family setting for wonderfully prepared, hot food for large gathering. First, they were able to seat our entire group (14) together. This is not possible many places. Service outstanding. Our waitress was prompt, friendly and efficient. Numerous other servers served food, refilled beverages, etc. to ensure we were never left unattended. Slaw remains consistently great. Fried chicken, gizzards, livers... More

First off the food is great. Nothing special just home style cooking like fried chicken roast beef and ham. Pricey but all you can eat.

We enjoy eating here with friends. Food is served family style or you may order off the menu. The staff is very friendly. Busy restaurant. I love the catfish, hubby loves the roast beef/gravy.

A great place to go for a down home comfort food restaurant. It has tremendous ambiance in a very historic building and specializes in family service with multiple meat selections and lots and lots of everything else. You can't leave hungry. I've never ordered desert because I am always too full.

Great family style meals for parties of 3 or more. Large portions of meat and all the sides that one can eat. They do not take credit cards. And there is always a crowd! One of the best places to eat in Evansville, IN area!

Besides the food being so good, Log Inn serves there meal family style, which is fun. So they bring out big bowls of mashed potatoes and corn, etc. If you go on the weekend, go early or you will be waiting awhile for a seat!
