“Where Lincoln once ate”
Twelve miles north of Evansville and one mile east of US Hwy 41, the Log Inn was built in 1825 as a Noon Day Stage Coach Stop and Trading Post. We have been officially recognized as the oldest restaurant in Indiana. While visiting the Log Inn, you can dine in the same original log room that Abraham Lincoln visited in 1844. One of the oldest original inn and stage coach stops in the United States, the Log Inn was built in 1825. Abraham Lincoln stopped here in November 1844 en route back home from Evansville. He was on a campaign tour speaking for “Clay for President” on the Clay Whig party ticket.
This was a fun little stop. Portion sizes were huge! Family of four, we got two ham entrees and one chicken, and we chose the family style service, so we had a ton of sides (green beans, corn, rolls, coleslaw, and mashed potatoes). We had so much food that we took most of the ham and chicken home. All of that for $40. It's definitely worth stopping in.
If you are in the area and it is meal time you need to stop here. The food is great and portions sizes will not leave you wanting. I would recommend reservations but even waiting for a bit is worth it. We were extremely happy with this choice for dinner and will stop again when in the area
The food was amazing if you don't mind the calories. :) You must get the fried chicken (there's nothing like it.) The service was great as well...super nice people. It was great to see the Lincoln Room too. Bathrooms were very clean for such an old place. Definitely a place to check out. We'll be back! Happy travels! :)
