Give it a try

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.

Marios123123 Thanks so much for visiting us at Log Cabin while in the US. I am glad to hear that we pleased the people in your party and sorry that the cabin wrap lacked luster for you but it is a lunch menu item that we serve for dinner upon request.

My favorite restaurant in Ruston. Always take visitors and guests who come from out of town and recommend it to others. Everything I have ordered has been good. Food is ALWAYS delicious!

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.

Food was good. Nice selection on the nenu. Service was excellent. Had 1/2 chicken plate, very juicy cooked perfectly. I recommend grilled veggies as a side.

Average food with a large selection. BBQ and Tex-Mex are good choices but with a large selection, food quality is inconsistent.

We've eaten here several times. The food was just good, not great. We mainly choose Log Cabin because of the variety on the menu. There is something there for everyone. The service has always been great and the have a nice store inside that sells cajun stuffed meats and other food items.
