Great lunch

We stopped here for lunch, and had a nice meal with a very nice service. This is comfort food at its best. We had a spinach salad with chicken and batter dipped shrimp. It was all very fresh. We will come back.

Ordered a burger basket type meal for lunch and although it came out fast and the waitress was good, the food was so so. It's quaint and maybe it was just an average day as I've heard good things about it, but it was just average.

This was the spot when I was a kid. Now that I've moved away I'm sad to say I only visit an average of one a year. But when I do, I aim for Mexican night and grab a margarita. If you are looking for a nice family dinner Jonny to try or are celebrating with out of town family... More

There is sometimes a wait for a table but it's always worth the wait. The broasted chicken is my favorite. But also great prime rib and home made soups. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive. Some times it gets a little loud when there's a full house but the surroundings and seasonal decorations make it warm and comfortable.... More

The wait staff does a great job in such a little area. Very cool little place. The food was good I guess. What I ordered anyway. I'd go again. Nothing special pops out that would have me give it higher than average.

Escape from franchises and uptight dining. Relax with friends and family in a place that you would expect to see in Montana or Wyoming. Classic and a nice diversion from other local stops. We sat at the bar and we were served by Tiana who's been with OLC for 17 years. She is exceptional and won't guide you wrong. We... More

Been going to Log Cabin for probably 20 years and I don't think I have ever had a bad meal. The waitresses are always friendly, the service is fast, and the food is delicious! Highly recommend the broasted chicken!

...this past Sunday wasn't the best experience. Don't get me wrong, this is one of our favorite restaurants and it's a good thing it's 30 miles from our home or we'd be there every night of the week. So when I say what I need to say it's because I want the best for Old Log. It was fairly busy... More
