This place is in the middle of no-where. OK, only about 10 miles from Nashville but very quiet location We used to eat here a while back but stopped coming when we thought the quality had slipped. So I was pleasantly surprised when we tried it again. We were there for breakfast with a group. Even though there was only... More

We drove two hours to go to the Indiana wine fair. It was a very miserable experience and I won't make the trip to go back. There are plenty of winery there but it was almost impossible to do tasting due to the crowds and the mud. We were literally up to our ankles in mud. It was advertised as... More

Food was amazing - worth the 10mile drive off the beaten path. I'd recommend the veggie omlet for breakfast - add the bacon, really made it amazing. Service was good with the exception of one woman who was supposed to serve us both dinner and breakfast, but never got around to waiting on us - didn't appear able to multi-task.... More

Won our overnight stay, playing trivia on the radio. The little town of Story is rich with history! An awesome little place for couples. Wonderful meals, they grow almost everything they cook with on their property. It isn't unusual to have several people arrive on horseback to get a drink in their underground bar. They have a frequent visitor called... More

We did not eat here, but had drinks downstairs and tour the property. It is a very cool place to visit and the people are very friendly! If u like small towns and vintage things , this is a must see. It is a great place put on a ride, lots of bikes. The Cowboys were super friendly as well!

We had a good meal at the Story Inn, but were taken aback by the small selection and price. The TripAdvisor overview says the meals are $15-30, but the meals are closer to $25-$40. The restaurant has a more organized and cleaner feel than when we were there a year ago.

All food is freshly made. I feel this restaurant is very expensive for average food. As for the rest of the area, it is very quaint and has a great history, even a ghost! It is fun to walk around the little community.
