Have stopped in this restaurant a number of times when in Galena - reason: it is consistent in the service, quality of food and appearance. Their hamburgers are great, as are the fries!

We waited over an hour for a table. The bar was full and the entry way is small. We were seated near the door, so a cold draft hit us regularly. Our food was ok and our server was less than ok. The owner was hosting and was not friendly unless he knew you.

Food ok, but.... like to eat a salad that seems freshly made, the one at Log Cabin might have been made in early morning. Lots of oil, not much flavor and the "feta" cheese was crumbled into little, little pieces, you could not use fork to get one piece. Walleye was tasteless, side of Greek potatoes was good, Lentil soup... More

The restaurant is small and intimate. Low lighting, music and the smell of garlic and oil greet you after stepping past the bar. The staff is good, they are prompt, quiet and down to the point. This is the perfect place for an intimate date. The food is phenomenal. I recommend whatever you do, try it Greek style.

Wood walls, relish platter, bread-sticks and beer cheese. Good food and plenty of it. Sit at the bar, have a cocktail and then have a fabulous meal. You will not leave hungry and you will probably at some point talk to the folks at the table next to you and know the waitresses name. It's that kind of old school... More

We've never had a bad meal here and return every time we're in Galena! The steaks are delicious, the atmosphere/ambience just right and the wait staff is excellent! The menu is large so if you're not in the mood for a good steak, there are seafood, chicken and pasta dinners. We highly recommend Log Cabin!

The food was good but the lighting is very poor, hard to see ur food, no windows. I felt ignored by our server, she knew the people at the next table so she spent time w/them rather than checking on us after we started eating our food. We won't be back to this restaurant.

We dined here tonight to wrap up our trip in Galena. This restaurant was recommended by a co-worker and we were really looking forward to our dinner. The atmosphere was cozy but a little dark. We ordered the prime rib, medium rare and our meat wasn't any where close to being correctly cooked. It was slightly tough and salty. One... More
