By Far the Best Steak I Have Ever Eaten

This restaurant was recommended by some locals and we are so glad we went!! We walked in and they told us it would be a wait, no more than 35 minutes. So they took our phone number to call us as we elected to walk around downtown Galena. Twenty minutes later we receive the call that our table... read more

Special treatment, quality choice food, outstanding service, with excellent prepared food and service. Usually have the Canadian Walleye Greek dtyle, but this time had the lamb chops....to die for in Greek style. My wife had catfish so large she took half home. Garnish tray with cheese, excellent side choices and Jeremiah as a waiter is tops. You know it's great... More

We waited about an hour for a table in the bar, with a piano playing for atmosphere. It was worth the wait!

We drive from Dubuque, IA to Galena, IL for dinner at the Log Cabin every few weeks; there are typically four to six in the party, and we always enjoy ourselves. This is a great restaurant run by a family, originally from Greece, that know how to buy, prepare and serve quality meals. The menu selection is without equal with... More

Stopped in The Log Cabin on Thursday night. I had the Filet and my wife ordered the Chicken Caesar Salad. My mistake was giving my wife a bite of my steak before she even tasted her salad. She was so impressed with the steak that I split the steak with her and we took the salad to go. Great atmosphere... More

The last visit was exceptional with the steaks that melted in your mouth! This visit we tried the Greek baked cod and the fried chicken. Needless to say, the cod was perfectly cooked with the appropriate Greek seasonings, and greek potatoes. My husband ordered the chicken. It had a light coating, no salty taste, moist and flavorful. We, again, made... More

A step inside this restaurant is a step into a typical midwest classic steak house. Excellent service, good drinks, the salads are premium, the steak sandwich ( not on the menu but a local favorite) is delicious and the shish-ka-bob is scrumptious. Top it off with the best carrot cake around. Romantic or good for conversation.

This restaurant has very good food. The staff and owners were very friendly. As an appetizer we had the flaming cheese and onion rings they were both very yummy! My husband had the pork chops and they were thick and filling, very tender and juicy. I had the Seafood Jamboree Greek Style,the taste was okay not very flavorful. I know... More
