My husband and I went here for a celebratory dinner on our babymoon and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The seafood chowder and steaks (both filet and ribeye!) were delicious. We also had the apple cobbler and loved it. Great service and atmosphere and lots of fun things to look at! A fun little getaway!

I made the long and winding trek to The Story Inn on Thanksgiving day, mostly because my options for the holiday were limited. As I came around the bend the almost ancient-looking Inn sat there, nestled by the road. My immediate thought was that it was aptly named since anyplace that looked this timely must be full of stories. Walking... More

Would have been four stars if not for the odd service. Our Asian waitress obviously hasn't heard that the best service is unobtrusive yet efficient. She interrupted dinner conversation several times, one of which was to tell us that she was freaking out inside because my husband reminded her if her ex down to his clothing. She went on and...

Story is about 30 minutes from Nashville Indiana on a twisting country road. We were staying in Nashville when we read about the restaurant on trip advisor and visitors center in Nashville confirmed it was a great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and is a popular destination for visitors from Indianapolis and other cities. Reservations are required. The facade... More

Scenic drive to the Story Inn and worth the trip. Interesting history of the town was supplied while we ate our lunch. Lots of charm and good food! Glad we made the trip off the beaten path.

Went to the Story Inn tonight for dinner love the atmosphere lamp lite tables 1800s feel and general store decor but very classy. Up scale food with a relaxed feel, we all had the ribeye cooked to perfection, potato soup, and a cured meat tray with in house made Poppy seed crackers. At the end of the meal we had... More

Not expecting 5 star food for this location. Outside looks like a spooky ghost story but wants you start inside you could tell this is an upscale dining area with country charm old world meaning and history. We stayed the night so we took part in the breakfast. Again not expected to see something from a fine restaurant like New... More

Had a reservation for breakfast, arrived 10 minutes early, waited 20 minutes for a table in a restaurant that was only half full. The hostess was unwelcoming and seemed to be bothered when we tried to engage her in conversation while we waited (only ones waiting). Was finally seated and had a substantial wait for a waitress. The entire breakfast... More
