After eating Mexican food for two straight nights we were ready for something different. Decided to try the Little Gem restaurant at the Abe Martin Lodge in Brown County State Park. Kind of wished we would have eaten Mexican again. It was just OK. My ground steak was nothing special and my wife was... read more

Quaint little restaurant inside the State Park's Abe Martin Lodge offers some hearty, Indiana favorites including a good tenderloin sandwich. Prices were affordable, mostly under $10 per person.

The food was average, but the atmosphere made it all fine. They had live music and a great wait staff. It was a pleasant evening with my wife.

We went there on a Sunday about 12:30 pm. They had the lunch buffet for $10.99 which isn't a bad price. They had chicken and Ham on the buffet. The chicken was okay and I didn't try the ham it didn't look very good. The broccoli was cold. There just wasn't anything special about it. The salad bar was very... More

The rooms are very nice and clean. The restaurant has great food. Upstairs is a huge fireplace to relax by. Best time to go is in the fall. There is also a indoors waterpark with lazy river and a water slide. Nice trails close to the Lodge. Very romantic.

Had a great day antiquing in Southern Indiana. Stopped for dinner after visiting Nashville, IN at the Brown County State Park Abe Martin Lodge. Normally, you can count on a wonderfull "home cooked" type meal at any of the Indiana State Park Lodges. Tonight the cook was off his game with overcooked, greasy, cold fried chicken, raw in the center... More
