I was with a group of 25 people and the food and service were great! My husband and I ate family style and ordered chicken livers. We had enough livers left over for 3 more meals.

Chicken, ham, beef. All served family style. usually more then you can eat. Very good food quality. A different dinning experience. The oldest restaurant in Indiana. Definitely worth trying out. It's great for large families and groups.

Abe Lincoln ate here. The room is still in tact. They serve great food and also serve family style. Chicken seems to be their specialty. Service is good, food is good and the Abe Lincoln room is a part of history.

No, I'm sorry I don't, and I have looked for something to even come close. The slaw is just green cabbage and red and green peppers, but it is the dressing that makes it. I figure it is a simple syrup made from distilled... More
