I grew up a couple of miles from the Log Inn. Having traveled extensively, i still enjoy this restaurant more than most. It is a family owned and operated restaurant. The third and fourth generations are currently active in the daily operation. Many special occasions are celebrated here. The fried chicken is legendary! Its always piping hot! They offer several...

Want a home cooked meal? You need to come here. I crave this place regularly. I always choose the ham which is very good. Plus you get endless sides that are almost better than my grandma's cooking!!

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

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
