The Story Inn is a one-of-a-kind establishment that is wonderful for anytime dining, but particularly perfect for a romantic dinner and an overnight stay in one of the unique and cozy accommodations. The management is to be complimented for being efficient and managing an attentive staff. The chef's culinary talent is amazing and we enjoyed every meal that was attractively... More

A charming little gem off the beaten path with so much to offer. We enjoyed a late breakfast with mimosas. The food was awesome and the service delightful. I would highly recommend.

We were two of 8 people in this very out of the way restaurant for lunch today ( a Thursday in mid- September.) We were seated by a rather indifferent hostess, given water by a lovely woman and told our waitress would be with us shortly. Shortly was a long time. We ordered the soup of the day which was...

We made the trip to scout out the Inn for a possible weekend stay next year. I can only imagine the drive when the trees are turning in the fall. Stopped in on a weekday with no reservation and was seated very quickly and served promptly. We were a little surprised it was a upscale meal, but it was the... More

Having passed through Story, Indiana on previous excursions through Brown County, we always wanted to stop and check out the Story Inn. On this short getaway, we decided to try out the Story Inn Restaurant for dinner. We made a reservation and upon arrival, we were seated a few minutes ahead of schedule. The step-back-in-time atmosphere was delightful, but unfortunately,... More

This dinner was incredible! We could not have asked for a more delicious meal. There is such history to the town, inn, and restaurant which creates a really unique ambiance. I would definitely recommend coming here for a meal!

The unique setting is definitely a plus for this restaurant, as is the history of the place. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. My partner had a steak which was normally accompanied by grits, but they allowed him to substitute mashed potatoes as he is not a grit eater. My lamb was very flavorful but accompanied by risotto that was... More

Very unusual place. A little pricey, but for a special occasion it is unforgettable. The setting is in a very small village and was established in the mid 1800's. Our waitress was very attentive and could not have been more cooperative.

This was my first time being apart of a beer dinner. They come and got our beer to pair with a menu the chef came up with. 6 beers total and 5 course. The food was greatly paired with the beers. Cheers
