Live music, great food, and tons of charm! Absolutely a must see! The building has an interesting history and the other buildings are just too cool!

This review is for the RESTAURANT ONLY - see separate review under The Story Inn for lodging review. We ate dinner here one evening - the dining room in the old general store is lovely! Service was pleasant, professional and attentive. Our food was very good. Husband had cup of soup, then scallops with bok choy. I'm vegetarian, and I... 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

The Story Inn restaurant is in a general store from the 1800s in the town of Story Indiana, about a 20 minute drive from Nashville, Indiana. We had dinner on a Tuesday evening and breakfast the following morning. Dinner was delicious, I had the creamy butternut squash soup and filet on top of goat cheese mashed potatoes. My husband had...

While visiting we stopped at the Inn for lunch. A warning that the place filled rapidly at noon. We entered at 12 noon and there were only three tables occupied. By the time we ordered the place was full with two couples waiting. The pork tenderloin was worth the price as was the omelet my daughter had. The fresh brewed... More

Worth the winding scenic drive that seems endless but at the end is the most quaint and historic inn with a 4 start restaurant. Whatever you do , don't miss this place and plan to stay if you fancy haunted rooms ha!

I recently visited the historic Story Inn after spending the afternoon in Nashville, Indiana. It's out in the middle of nowhere, walled in by corn fields, giving visitors the eerie feeling that they're being transported back to the 1850's when the General Store was first established. It is supposedly haunted, but I didn't experience anything out of the ordinary. Due... More

This business was established in 1851. Exterior features two old Standard Oil gas pumps. Interior has a collection of numerous antiques. The food and service were fabulous. We didn't stay there but it is haunted by the "blue lady." I left my credit card there and they called as we were almost back to Nashville. Only negative is the location... More

A charming little gem off the beaten path with so much to offer. We enjoyed a late breakfast with mimosas. The food was awesome and the service delightful. I would highly recommend.
