Not what we expected!

Had walked by the Log Cabin for year. Figured it for a typical bar and grill. Nicely surprised to find a great restaurant. Funky, fun atmosphere. Welcoming hosts.Wonderful food.

The place to go for dinner in Galena. However, figure on making reservations if you plan on going over the weekend. My prime rib was perfect and the Misses steak was also. Service was very good. Also had the Flaming Cheese (Saganaki),which was a large portion and was great.

Based on reviews we read, we were disappointed in our experience. The food was average, yet expensive. The servers were excellent however, otherwise my overall rating would have been worse. The beef our party ate was "fine", fried fish was ok, and the scallops were gritty - a huge no no. I will say, though, that the bar area was... More

Visited Galena on four day holiday, tried the Log Cabin based on Trip Advisor reviews. Wife had prime rib and I had the Walleye, both were excellent, the staff were professional and attentive. Decided to eat there a second time on the trip because of the positive experience ! We weren't disappointed.

In town for a business retreat, my associate suggested we try The Log Cabin one night, and I am so glad we did -- I will be back! He had a steak, and I had a seafood platter -- Greek-broiled. OUTSTANDING meals, both of them! Everything was prepared 'just right,' from the fresh roll and veggies, to the salad, to... More

Whenever my husband and I are in the area, we always stop at the Log Cabin for dinner. Never had a bad meal yet.

Great steaks and a cool building inside. It offers American and Greek food. Entrees come with a relish tray with veggies and cheese dip. We've been there several times and have never been disappointed.

I asked what time they closed and I was told about 5 minutes ago so I apologized and we started to leave. they were... More

Dinner was a part of a family vacation, our son picked the restaurant as he had gone previously and enjoyed a steak. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was very cozy and comfortable. Server (Cindy) was great as well. Perfect night in Galena.
