We love The Log Inn. They're usually busy so there may be a wait, but it's worth it. We always order the family style with chicken, but there are other meat options. It comes with tolls, cole slaw, mashed potatoes, corn, and either peas or green beans. They also have items that you can order from the menu, but we've never tried anything else. When my boys are leaving for college or come home for a visit we always have to visit The Log Inn.

We went the nite of the Lincoln 150 Anniversary...as usual it was awesome..very crowded for a Tuesday nite, we were seated at the last table in the dining room around 6:30pm. We all ordered a different entree so we could taste different things. The fried chicken was golden brown and very hot, the livers and gizzards were cooked to perfection and the ham steak was huge and tasty. We did mashed potatoes, peas, cole slaw and corn. Everything was wonderful and as busy as they were we had excellent service and the food came in a timely fashion. A must for good home cooking.

The Log Inn is a locally-owned family business about 30 minutes north of Evansville. It used to be a stage coach stop and trading post in the 1800s. The old part of the restaurant is an actual log cabin with a pot belly stove in the center. The walls are decorated with history - including Abraham Lincoln items. He once ate there in 1844.

The menu is filled with traditional home cooking, but the best way to dine is family style. Each person gets a choice of meat, and the whole table shares items like mashed potatoes, gravy, vegetables, and rolls. If you don't leave with a full belly, it's your own fault.

It's a little out of the way, but the Log Inn is a great place for a hearty meal and a little history.

We have been eating at the Log Inn for 30 plus years and they have the best fried chicken in the area. Dinners are served family style for groups of three or more and everything is very good. Their coleslaw is excellent as are the fiddlers (catfish). They cater to all size groups up to very large company parties. It also has a very interesting history and décor.
