Even as old-fashioned restaurant, the Log Inn still serves a variety of modern appetizers. Diners have the choice to start their meals with onion rings, mozzarella sticks, egg rolls, fried mushrooms and many more fried delights.
There are two options when choosing a main course at the Log Inn: A la Carte or the traditional family style.
A la Carte offers classics like burgers hot off the grill, fries, baked potatoes, salads and individual orders of what is served family style.
To order family style, there must be three or more people in the dining party. The concept of the meal is to pass around the bowls of sides, like a normal dinner at home with the family. Sides include peas, green beans, corn, mashed potatoes and gravy, rolls, German fries and the ever-popular coleslaw.
Log Inn is not famous for its sides though.
The award winning fried chicken draws in nearly everyone who catches its greasy, yet oh so delicious scent. Prepared to order, the chicken has been made with the same secret recipe passed down through three generations.
Other meat options consist of savory roast beef, ham, grilled chicken with or without grilled onions, the southern favorite of chicken livers and gizzards and catfish fillets.
If a customer still manages to have room for dessert, the Log Inn provides nearly every sinfully delectable sweet imaginable.
Pies range from the standard apple all the way to coconut topped heartily with meringue. Not only do they have carrot, German chocolate and cheesecake, but also birthday cakes upon request.
Two full bars provide draught beer, wine and cocktails for those interested in drinks with dinner or dessert.
Although the homemade food seems to attract much of their business, the Elpers family may have more to do with the restaurant’s success than they realize.
