If you want good home cooked food this is the place to go. Love the family style dining. We have never been disappointed in the chicken and trimmings. The log cabin atmosphere enhancing the dining experience. Seating can be a little crowded on the busy nights. Suggest going early.

Tight seating, home style dinner wasn't easy to do with the small area on table. Food was nothing to brag about.

We love this place! I usually choose to go here on my birthday. It's crowded a lot but not too noisy. We have not had anything there that we haven't liked but love the fried chicken and rolls. Warning though, they don't take credit.

Country family style food here is delicious. Chicken and fiddlers are out of this world. Employees have their duties down to a tee. Place just needs to be completely renovated. Creaks when you walk through all the many segmented areas of establishment. Great family atmosphere though.

The Log Inn prepares the best fried chicken and side dishes in the tri-state area. There has never been a reason to change the menu as each time we either dine in or carry out, we enjoy the incredible comfort food. This is a cash only restaurant, so prepare in advance for this aspect.

One of our favorites for many years! Best Fried Chicken and Chicken Livers on the Planet. Period. Fantastic Cole Slaw and German Fries. Fantastic Desserts. Family owned and operated plus this is Indiana's oldest restaurant which was once a stagecoach stop where Abraham Lincoln came to. The Log Room has the original logs from the 1800's.

What a fun place to go..very crowded. You sit very close to other guests but food is worth it. Long lines but was impressed how quickly they get people seated. Would recommend for anyone. A bit pricey but you get plenty for what you pay. Desserts are so delicious. Go before they open to get a place in line.its worth... More

A little bit out of the way but not that bad to get to. The Log Inn has been around for ever and I can't tell anyone how many banquets, retiree dinners, business parties, and just plain "good eatin'" times we've been there. Great family style home cooking and a great atmosphere. There are separated dividers to have business meetings... More
