So grateful the Log Inn is only a few miles away. It is a great place for a family style meal. However, on this Friday night my husband and I opted for the large munchie tray while sitting at the bar. Deep fried cheese, cauliflower, mushrooms, and onion rings, and three egg rolls. With horseradish sauce and sweet/sour sauce. Our... More

This is a one of a kind experience that makes a day worth living. The surroundings are what a person pays for and the food is pretty good too. Get there early or you will have a long wait. I would drive the 175 miles just to eat here.

Great food, served family style. If you leave here hungry it is your own fault. Great fried chicken, and the roast beef is the best around. Family style dinners will get you all the corn, green bean, mashed potatoes and rolls you can eat. You will not be disappointed.

We've eaten here many times, had our 50th anniversary dinner there. Lots of family get togethers. All these times and not one complaint from anyone. Whether it's the wonderful fried chicken, roast beef, country ham, or the chicken livers. You just can't go wrong. All the sides are great , Cole slaw, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, and hot rolls. That's... More

The Log Inn is a local gem. A bit of history with excellent home style cooking. The fried chicken is excellent. The dinners are served family style for parties of a certain number. The side dishes are just like your Grandma made for Sunday dinner. You can also choose roast beef or fried fish. They do have desserts, but have... More

When we want to treat ourselves, or gather for a special family event, we eat here. Order individually, or Family style. Begin with the meat! Choose Catfish, fried chicken, roast beef, ham, or deep fried livers. Then added to that will 2 vegetables, and their famous coleslaw. Very good! Get there early or call ahead for reservations if a party... More

You probably don't see too many carry out reviews but that is exactly what this review is. My wife and I were in Evansville to visit family. We selected the Log Inn to provide our evening meal during a family get together. My brothers, who live in the immediate area, were familiar with this restaurant. There were eight of us.... More

This restaurant is where Abe Lincoln stayed back in the day. The family style food is out of this world. Many famous people eat here because it is so good. Make sure you bring a big appetite. This place will fill you up.
