My wife and I ate lunch in this restaurant. The interior of the place was very dark and it was difficult to read the menu due to the darkness of the interior. The service was good and the food was even better.

Can't describe it any other way....coming from Chicago, we know fine dining and know that fine steak dining results in great food, presentation, service, and experience. None of that achieved during our visit this evening. Service was inept...never heard about specials or choices available. Food was okay...fried shrimp has soggy crusts. Steak was good. Presentation reminded me of the old... More

We ate here with family for my birthday and the staff was very friendly and service was spectacular. The steaks here are amazing and a lot of other food comes with your meal. We even made room for desert. The steaks are a bit pricey but it was a fun experience.

My husband and I celebrated our fourth anniversary at The Log Cabin. The steak was fantastic and the service was impeccable! The atmosphere was comfortable and cozy. My only complaint was old dessert. The chocolate cake tasted like it had been sitting in a refrigerator for quite some time!

I have a mixed review to offer. There were elements of our experience that were good, average, and poor. Good: Our food server was excellent; she was knowledgable, friendly, patient and accommodating to our pace. The Greek salads (up charge) were good. The steaks we had for entrees were very good although I wouldn't say the best we've ever had.... More

My husband and I chose the Log Cabin based on Trip Advisor reviews and they were right again! We were promptly seated at our reservation time and entered a great old log cabin feeling dinner club. The atmosphere was delightful, the staff friendly an prompt and the menu perfectly varied. A lot of people were ordering the flaming saginaki (?)... More

Just had a drink here with friends this past weekend. Have NEVER been treated so rudely by a bartender before let alone both of them. They were snippy and one actually told me I would get diabetes if I had a second drink. Are you kidding me? The three of us are middle-aged and we were quite nice when ordering.... More

We chose the Log Cabin as our "splurge" restaurant for our vacation. Let me tell you, it was worth the extra price! We all got the 16oz Ribeye (not Greek style), and it was so tender, flavorful and juicy. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Every meal is served with a round of bread which was warm and...

Stopped in and had the even special of prime rib and best I've ever had with huge portions. Salad with their creamy Italian was cold and refreshing and ample rolls, crackers, cheese spread, and veggies. The cut of prime rib was perfect and served on a hot place and done just right. The price that night was $17.99 and well... More

For a supposedly "high-end" restaurant the food was definitely nothing to write home about. The bread was generic and store bought, served cold. The desert was also generic and store bought definitely not home made. My wife and I ordered the porterhouse steak. It was 32 oz and cost $40.00. As it was a huge steak so we decided to... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We try very hard to see that everyone enjoys their visit with us. This is Dino, the owner of the Log Cabin Steakhouse. The split plate charge is printed on the menu. Our Greek salads are made in the traditional, old world way. Please contact me at (815) 777-0393. I... More
