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

On July 30th 2016 my brother and his fiancé held a small wedding of 13 people here. Once arriving to Story we went to the check in and there was a lack of greeting and some confusion of rooms from the young lady at the guest check. Once we received our room keys we proceeded to our rooms. The area... More

Love the feel of an old country town. People are friendly and laid back. You may even see a few horsemen as they travel the trails through Brown county.

This place is a real find. It's always a good sign when a predinner "gift" is sent by The chef: an heirloom cherry tomato with goat cheese and herbs. The food has some innovation (a jalapeno gazpacho soup) and lamb in porterhouse form. Service was attentive without being intrusive. The front of the house was also very well attended by... More

Enjoyed both dinner and breakfast at the Inn, and was pleased by the menus, but not so by the service. The waitress was inattentive at both meals, so that I had to call her over more than once for service. The ambience was delightful; truly a step back in time. The dishes were prepared very well and the wine was... More

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...
