After a couple of days in the Bloomington/Nashville area, my husband and I topped off a wonderful weekend by driving to Story for brunch. I had heard wonderful things about both the inn and the food for years, and I was happy to finally make it to Story. Indeed, I was not disappointed with the experience. It was incredible driving...

We ate brunch on Saturday. My omelette was fluffy and very tasty. My husband had eggs that were done to perfection. And he is very picky about his eggs! The wait staff was very attentive and were generous with coffee refills. The setting is unique and well kept. I highly recommend, but it is a bit of a drive to... More

We used to enjoy Jeep-ing down to Story in the summer but this last time it looks like the menu has changed and the prices have gone up. I paid $14 for a meat sampler plate (I forget what they called it.) and got a few tiny mounds of meat and some peas and crackers. Of the six people in... More

Hello Alan, Thanks for visiting us. I truly appreciate your feedback, and am sorry to hear that our restaurant menu wasn't what you expected, and the timeliness of the service was not up to par. On busy weekends, this is why we offer different food options at our patio grill and bar below the restaurant. Although we haven't raised prices... More

Was there for a family wedding what a super location for all of us to gather. Was nice we all had our own cottage. Each one was so different and we marveled at how unique each one was. Some large with two bedrooms with full kitchens and some smaller but had mini fridge and microwave and coffee service. The coffee... More

Not sure if it was our server or if the place is really not equipped to serve kids. Apparently they have a hamburger option and a oyster po boy that was recommended for kids. Oysters for kids? He briefly mentioned a bar menu and said that is what was on it but the meat option would be soup and a... More

My husband I recently took my father-in-law out for a late Saturday brunch. We have been to this establishment several times and never disappointed, until now. We had a very inattentive server who disappeared without refills on our coffee (which, by the way is a local roaster's brew and is very good). The menu lacked any imagination given the number...

The Story Inn is well worth a small detour when visiting Brown County and Nashville, IN. I had two breakfasts there and both were excellent. One morning I had the French toast and the other an omelet. The service is great also.

When we booked a room for a Monday, they did not tell us the restaurant is closed on Mondays. When we called to confirm the reservation and found out the restaurant is closed, they said we would still have to pay if we did not show up. What kind of B&B has no food service on one day? There is... More

Just great food and service in this small restaurant located in a perfect country setting. The service was superb as well. Not a large menu but something for everyone. We were all impressed with our food. Not the easiest place to find, but trust your GPS.
