Very Good

We've been here many times and the food is good (in spite of some of the reviews). They feed you "family style" but more like an Italian grandma. You'll definitely be taking most of your meal home. My wife had the eggplant and it made 4 meals! I really recommend trying this place.

My wife & I stopped there at the recommendations from the guys at the antique store down the street. They told me you wont leave hungry, they weren't kidding! We started out with nice sized house salads with gorgonzola dressing,followed by warm bread & butter to go along with a huge bowl of pasta. I had the evening special,Zuppa di... More

You really cannot go wrong with Log Cabin. Love the wait staff (Cindy is our favorite) the drinks are right on and the food is amazing with always enough food to take home. Family style is the theme.

We just love this place you can come for lunch and go home with enough ziti and leftovers for the week. We were recently here for lunch with family and had the best pasta dish from the Specials on the board, cant remember the Italian name for the pasta but it was like a little sachet packet filled with lobster...

We live in the area and frequently ate at the log cabin about 10 years ago. Then the food took a serious turn for the worse. Business dropped off new owners came in and the parking lot got crowded again. So after 10 years we decided to try it again for lunch the other day. Hubby got the pot roast... More

Good prices for a good lunch. Both my wife and I ordered seafood for lunch. The price was very reasonable and the plate's full. We were very surprised as to how good it was. While service was some what slow it was well worth the wait.

A real log cabin, very rustic. Great food, big salad with excellent dressing. I had Veal Francese that had 8 pieces of veal on the plate. Pasta was served family style in large bowls. We all walked out with take-home boxes as did everyone else we saw leaving. Prices are above average, but so is the food.

There is always enough left over for two or more meals. One pound of pasta with every non-pasta meal. Good marinara sauce. Zuppa di pesce is monstrous. All portions are insane. Don't be deceived by the log cabin, this place is cool.

service was slow despite the fact that it was not at all crowded. Food was slow but tasty with generous portions. Bread was getting stale and crumbed a lot. Waitress walked past us several times before finally asking if we were ready to order. Then asked if we wanted something to drink. Asked for no onions on my salad -... More

Seriously mad at myself for not reading the reviews before eating here. We thought the prices were very high for a lunch menu but since we are near the beach in a kind of resort area I just shrugged. We ordered 2 soups (clam chowder and French onion) and the chicken Alfredo for our 18 yo son. The chicken meal... More
