Log Inn is probably my entire family's favorite place to eat. This is everyone's pick for their birthday dinner. Expect to wait a while because it fills up very fast.

Wonderful dining experience. So much history in The Log Inn, so much terrific food, I didn't care that it was a cash or check only place. I'll be back every time I come to EVV

I have attended several weddings that the log inn has catered.
Love the Log Inn... Don't get there as often I would like like... everything is delicious... but the slaw is to die for. Could you please share the recipe for this outstanding salad???
