Great Customer Service

Not only was the food excellent--but the customer service could not have been better. The bar has a great atmosphere and when we said it was our 1st visit, everyone we encountered had a wonderful suggestion of something to see or do while we were in Galena. We cannot wait to come back!

We were very excited to try "the best steak in Galena." I really hope Galena has better steaks somewhere. We had reservations for 8 and we weren't sat till 8:45 after they failed to find us at their bar. I can consider that as a small problem but it was one of many. The biggest problem being the smell of... More

My wife and I went to the Log Cabin for supper. I read reviews and looked at their website before we went there and had high expectations. aged steaks all cut in house. They did not disappoint, the T-bone was excellent and the service was fantastic. The Log Cabin will absolutely be on a list of places we stop in... More

This was our first visit to Galena and after reading the restaurant reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to try Log Cabin our first night in town as we heard the steaks were very good. My friend was not disappointed and said it was one of the very best strip steaks he had ever eaten. I had the broiled shrimp and... More

Our family all went here to try something different. The outside resembles an old bar and the menu is very much like a supper club with a smattering of Greek offerings. The steaks we ordered were all over cooked and a few were sent back. One in our party ordered the chicken which they said was very good. It is... More

My husband and I visited the Log Cabin after hearing many positive reviews from friends. The food is great and just enough different from the norm to spice up an otherwise regular evening dinner out. I recommend going Greek with the salad and the preparation. Particularly the Greek fries. Yum! The desserts are locally made so the cheese cake was... More

This was our second trip to Log Cabin, after enjoying our first time very much a few years ago. When attempting to make reservations for 5:45 (a few days in advance) we were told that they could only do a 5:30 that evening and had no booths; so we took the 5:30. When arriving, we were seated in the "overflow"... More
