“Great food, great place to meet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Best fried chicken and family style meals make a great place for dinner!
Good friendly service and generous portions. If it's just 2 of you, a la carte sides are enough for 2 and it costs less than family style. They do not take credit cards but there is an ATM on site.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014 via mobile

We went with a group of people and got the family style dinner. It was awesome! The corn and mashed potatoes were prepared perfectly. Living near south Saint Petersburg, I am used to eating good fried chicken and the Log Inn's definitely met my expectations for quality and flavor. I would recommend this restaurant without reservation.

“Best home style family restaurant in the Tri-State”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Great food served family style if you wish. The Log Inn has a long history. It is said that Abraham Lincoln spoke at the Log Inn. They are famous for their fried chicken and their sweet and sour cole slaw is second to none. I just got home from a business meeting their and we served more food than we could eat.

“Log Inn simply put wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Family style dinner served hot - the food is brought to your table in large portions so that each member of your party can serve themselves

The resturaunt is usually packed and seating is close but the atmosphere is warm lively
If you don't have a party of 4 or more the family style dinner is not for you
But you will still receive the same menu items at varied prices

Our usual choice of chicken and assorted veggies - mashed potato , green beans , corn ect ect are always delicious and served hot


We have waited up to an hour for seating but it's worth the wait

The staff and servers are always pleasant
