The oldest restaurant in the state is temporarily closed, but that delicious fried chicken will be back before you know it!

Indiana's Oldest Restaurant

The Log Inn was built in 1825 and when it opened it was the Noon Day Stage Coach Stop and Trading post.  These days it's now known as The Log Inn, and you can even dine in the same log room that Abraham Lincoln visited in 1844.

At nearly 200 years old (199 years this year to be exact) The Log Inn has officially been recognized as the oldest restaurant in the state of Indiana. The Log Inn is also well known for its delicious fried chicken and family-style dinners.
The Log Inn is a place where my family has gone to celebrate many big events.  From birthdays to graduations, and engagements, my family has gone to The Log Inn several times to enjoy a delicious family-style meal and celebrate fun occasions.  I know this holds true for many in the Tri-State as well! The Log Inn isn't just a restaurant, where you go to eat fried chicken, it's a whole experience of enjoying a family-style meal with loved ones (and a family-style meal that you don't have to cook)!  But if you were hoping to enjoy some of that delicious fried chicken during the holiday weekend, you'll have to make other plans.

The Log Inn took to Facebook to announce that they would be temporarily closed this week, but no worries they'll be back to cooking their delicious signature meals in no time, as they'll be reopening on Tuesday, July 9th.  So no worries, it's just a brief holiday break.


Log Inn will be closed beginning this Sunday June 30th through Monday July 8th.
We will reopen Tuesday July 9th.
Thank you and we will back before you know it.
If you have plans to enjoy The Log Inn this weekend, you'll need to change them to next weekend, luckily that's not too far away!
