Wonderful ambience

You can't beat the Story Inn for ambience. An ancient grocery store transformed into an ancient feeling restaurant. It is set in the country, has tons of outdoor (and indoor) seating and a diverse group of patrons, from foodies to folks on horseback and motorcycles. For a long time it was our... read more

Rode over from Brown County Horse Camp. We were there Memorial Day weekend. They had live entertainment which was very good . The singer sounded just like Johnny Cash. When we first road in we thought they were playing Johnny Cash on a stereo system but soon found the gentleman singing. The Horse area was very crowded and the wait... More

Our beautiful weekend away in Brown County had LOTS on the itinerary to do, but highlighted on our list of things to see was The Story Inn. We were extremely excited about visiting a place with such a great history, and found that the journey there was just as interesting! The landscape for our drive was filled with twists and... More

The Story Inn is a wonderful place for couples, business, solo, or even family. It is located right on State highway 135 south in beautiful Brown County, they have a nice wine selection along with beer on tap(or in the bottle) the Inn is right behind Brow County State Park. If your a horse man/woman there's trails from Brown County... More

My husband and I came here upon an area business owner's recommendation. We didn't have reservations but luckily it was a slow weeknight. That being said, our waitress said there are nights they may close if it's slow and they don't have any reservations so keep that in mind! The location/atmosphere is worth the visit. The entire little town is... More

Stopped here while visiting wine festival. Several of us had the peach cobbler, but it wasn't anything like what we expected. Instead of crispy crumbs mixed with peach filling, it was more like peach pie. Disappointing. And at 7 bucks, not a bargain. But area is attractive, in beautiful Brown County. Which almost makes it worth it.

Ate dinner at The Story Inn. We had reservations but arrived early. The staff got us in earlier. Food was terrific! Server forgot our appetizer but the dinner portions were large. Would definitely return!

We had our Anniversary dinner there on a Friday night around 6pm. We had reservations so we would have a seat for sure. Not too busy when we arrived. We enjoyed our dinner, but it was not fantastic by all means, but still gave it a 4. It is pricey, so be prepared to pay for it. All in all,... More

We walked in did not have a reservation was seated promptly and had a wonderful Easter breakfast. The food was above excellent, our waitress gave us the history of this inn (some say its haunted) the rooms were decorated in great taste, kinda taking a step back in time. They let us inspect rooms in case we wanted to stay... More

Quiet, romantic warm setting with fabulous food and service! Dinner was a little pricey but worth it! My husband had the filet and said it was one of the best he's ever had! My Cornish hen was also delicious and wonderfully moist. Our waitresses were friendly and warm. We will be back to little little treasure!
