this recommendation breaks my own policy. I ONLY recommend places I know personall and for a restaurant that means I must have eaten at the famous Story Restaurant. Okay, I've been here many times but never came at eating time so I always just stop by enjoy the quaint view and I HAVE eaten at their little snack shop/lounge. Story, Indiana - eat and stay in a one-owner town!
I copied the following from their web site for you: The Story Village is representative of a rural turn-of-the-century trading community where the surrounding neighbors came to exchange goods, ideas and gossip. At its center, the general store is complete with its pot belly stove and checker barrel. On the porch is the liars' bench flanked by Red and Gold Crown gas pumps capped with blown glass crowns. You can sit and while away the time taking in the Wheeler and Kelly homesteads, a hitchin' post, the old mill building (recently converted into a neighborhood tavern), the Ten O' Clock Treaty Line and the fields and woods beyond.
Protected from development by the state and federal land on its periphery, the Story Village embodies the spirit of a bygone era.
The area was originally settled by Dr. George Story and his relatives in the 1850s. They were a clan of timber harvesters from southern Ohio who were attracted to the Story area by the vast expanses of virgin hardwoods.
Today the main floor of the General Store is virtually unaltered and houses a gourmet restaurant. You can dine on expertly prepared meals and view the old cash registers, spool boxes, scales, product displays, sample products , signs , antique lighting fixtures and a pot belly stove. The second floor of the building has been tastefully altered into four bed and breakfast rooms, each of which have been furnished with period antiques and restored artifacts. There are eight other cottage units for bed-and-breakfast in town, tastefully restored.
Favorite Dish: I've been told everything is wonderful --- maybe I should take my wife there for Mother's Day!!
You can eat here if you'd like but I like to go into the bar in The Season's. If you get one of the two window booths you can look at the hills and the trees. Very peaceful and a draft beer is only $1.75 for domestic including a couple of Michelob offerings
the inset picture also shows one of their hotel rooms
Directions: Two minutes East of Nashville on 46 -- You'll pass it if you've come West from I-65
Not my favorite by a long-shot but best known: Nashville House -- supposedly typical Indiana cooking. Last time I ate there I was very dissappointed.
Favorite Dish: believe it or not, fried biscuits
Directions: Heart of Nashville at the Main Stoplight (on Road 135 about five minutes north of the intersection with Highway 46)
