A historical cabin with great food. Our server, Alex, was great and each of our entrees, steak Diane, osso buco , chicken Marsala, and Halibut were superb. A tip for dining, order French fries for the table. Better than McDonalds.

Our recent visit to The Log Cabin Restaurant was disappointing. The staff was arrogant, the acoustics are poor in the restaurant and the very loud music made our server inaudible. (I am not hard of hearing)He was unwilling to repeat in an audible voice or...More

The walk up the hill from our hotel was convenient. The building is quaint with lovely grounds. The dinner was average, at best. My steak diane arrived looking nice but as I made the first cut of a very small filet, the knife struggled. The...More

Enjoyed a good meal and good service. Sadly, we were greeted by the owner and he did not make us feel welcome or appreciated. Looking at other reviews, it seems being friendly is not something that comes naturally to him. Too bad.

Actually, this is not 100% accurate. They definitely take reservations by phone "during normal business hours" - but not on their voicemail. Also, they are one of the few restaurants if any that offer reservations on Open... More
