The food was off the charts! You get plenty and the staff was very nice.... You have to try the baked potato salad and baked beans. I don't care for baked beans i loved theirs..

College kids running the show. Food was tasty but half was cold. Service was ok. Bar was being used to count the till and put together silverware packs. Cook took a glass of Amber liquid from the bar back to the kitchen must have been thirsty!

Every time I am in Louisiana, US I try a new place. The Log Canin has an extensive menu, some people in my party were happy, I thought my grilled chicken wrap was just average in a plate with no real presentation.

The Restaurant is very nice. The waitstaff was good. The grilled vegetables were outstanding. Why in the world would you cook chicken over mesquite it overpowered the chicken and made quite unpleasant tasting. I guess trying to eat a healthy chicken breast at the log cabin is healthy as it is not very appetizing. Will not eat there again.

Cajun Gumbo First thank you so much for picking us to dine with that night. I am happy you enjoyed everything except the chicken. I am sorry it was overpowering to you as grilled chicken is our number 2 selling item off the grill behind a ribeye. We do cook everything over mesquite and sometimes when the wood is a... More
