The Log Inn is one the oldest restaurants in the area. It's family owned and operated and very inviting. It serves family style which is great when you have a big group but you can also eat when there is only two of you. The fried chicken is my favorite. The ham is good also. The roast beef can be...

This is a great historical place built in 1800's with great food. We got right in and ordered family style chicken and the roast beef. Both were very good. Can't believe I have drove past this place a million times and never noticed it. Glad I checked Trip Advisor. Great find! Will certainly be back.

I have grown up in the area and I have always taken friends and family to the Log Inn. Everyone is always amazed by the n ostalgiac decorations and interesting atmosphere. This last visit I have to say was by far the best experience we have EVER had. I attended a rehearsal dinner of 25 and everything was better than... More

A must stop if you like delicious food and great service. We were in town visiting our grandson and were looking for a non-chain restaurant in the Evansville area with unique food. We found what we were looking for (located about 12 miles north of Evansville, and just north of I-64 on US -24 .. and just about a mile... More

Log Inn is noted for originally being a stage coach stop. The cabin still stands and is part of the larger existing building. If you want family style with all the fixing they require three people. Each person gets a choice of fried chicken, ham steak, or beef strips plus bowls of homemade coleslaw, corn, green beans, mashed potatoes, gravy... More

Very good food. Nice for large parties so you can make reservations. Family Style is great for parties of more than two. Refills on all vegetables. Meats served are huge portions. The chicken and the ham are our favorites. Make sure you check out the history of the building. The waitress by the name of Patty is the best ever!... More

First, the restaurant features family-style serving for parties of three or more. We shared a room with such a party (baby shower), and they seemed to have great food and a great time, but we were only two, so we ordered a la carte. The fried chicken is old-school excellent, rolls were fresh-baked and delicious, baked potatoes were wrapped in... More

They do family style here but you can still order off the menu. We go for the fried chicken. Very good. We have tried other items but still come back for the chicken.
