For years, the Story Inn’s restaurant has been acclaimed as one of the finest in the State of Indiana.
The Story Inn’s immodest mission is to define and refine authentically Hoosier cuisine. We begin with locally-grown produce, eggs and fruit; locally-raised pork, elk, bison and Angus beef; and herbs, greens and garnishes grown and harvested in our own garden. We then place these raw materials into the hands of our talented chefs. Finally, we match the finished product with fine wines from near and far. For more information about our local producers please click here.
The main dining room is a place of enchantment. Imagine sipping an elegant wine at a small wooden table topped by fresh flowers and an oil lamp. Above your head is the original stamped sheet metal ceiling of this quaint 1916 General Store, complete with spinning fans; below your feet are creaky hardwood floors. You are surrounded by artifacts of a bygone era: logging tools, a pot bellied stove, and bric-a-brac from this very building. Your meal arrives by and by with exquisite presentation.
We are confident that this dining experience is one which cannot be duplicated anywhere. Dress casually, and allow at least two hours for your dining experience.
