We stopped by for Sunday brunch. They were out of the breaded tenderloin sandwich...so my wife opted for the house salad...nothing special. I had the pancakes...very tasty. Small, cozy place...rustic location and furnishings. Frequented by motorcycle enthusiasts...and folks checking out out-of-the-way places.

The Story Inn Restaurant is legend in this area. Locally sourced, farm-to-table food in a rustic setting. I was eager to try it. Everything started well until I asked about the cheeses on the 1st Course cheese plate. The server did not know what the cheeses were (and did not offer to find out) ... only that they were "potent",... More

I will come back again. I didn't have any beer or other alcohol, so I can't speak to that, but the coffee and iced tea were good.

They grow their own fruits and veggies and use all local products. Cooks, bartenders and wait staff are all very good. I really love this place. It is special!

We hit the Story Inn at least 6-9 times each summer while we are out on the motorcycle. The horse riders also stop in from the riding trails at Brown county state park. On the weekends, they usually have a small band or musician playing. Good times!!

I've been hearing about Story for years, but never managed to get down there. So glad I did tonight. Lovely menu, excellent beer and wine list. We enjoyed the pea soup appetizer. I had the duck breast which was amazing. Service was very attentive. There is a bar downstairs(it was busier than the restaurant at the early hour we dined.).... More

Had dinner here on our last night in Nashville. It was our best experience of our trip. Service was excellent, the filets were superb, and the rustic charm and ambiance of this historic restaurant tops it all off. This place lives up to all it's accolades.
