We always have a good meal and enjoy our time at the Old Log Cabin! I wish I could remember our favorite servers name because she is great(cute blonde who wears a flower in her hair)! Our only wish is they would change out iceberg lettuce for some nutritious greens and a couple specific gluten free options(like buns, bread or... More

Took my 14 year old grandson for lunch. Without any prompting from me he exclaimed, " wow, this is great. I give it five stars". Cheeseburger and chili special, 8.99.

Good and innovative soups, excellent prime rib and walleye, with fresh sides such as green beans and hearty potatoes. A few good wine selections.

Always a nice atmosphere, good service, good food. We have been coming to this place for years. It can get crowded, especially in the summer and on weekends, so plan ahead. A very nice local place.

I love coming here with the family, we always receive great service, and great food. The broasted chicken is my favorite. Only drawback is it gets very crowded on a Saturday night, and can cause long wait times. We just try to go early to avoid the rush.

A favorite spot since moving to Forest Lake. Good food, especially fast service if you order one of the specials posted in the black board. Breasted chicken is always great and enough to take home. Saturday/Sunday special is prime rib after 4:00. Two sizes to choose from.

I ordered the " All you can eat beer battered cod" which was delicious. I took home some of the cod as you get 3 large... More

Late lunch on a Saturday. Very friendly and efficient staff. Lots of healthy options but today we opted to start with fried mushrooms that were huge, hot, crispy and juicy, perfectly cooked. A bacon cheeseburger, delicious. Fish sandwich was like you get at a good fish shop in England. I had the Broasted Chicken with Broasted Potato wedges and a... More

We both had the walleye dinner (2 filets for $16) plus salad and potato or vegetable. It was very, very good and so much food we brought it home and finished it the next... More
