Casual Eating with Charm

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... read 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.

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

Bloody Mary's are really seasoned and come with a monster meat stick. The deep fried fish and chips could feed 3 people! No need for Friday's all you can eat fish fry

My 7 year old daughter and I love to go here for dinner and split the fish dinner. We both leave with our bellies very happy. The food and service are both great.

My wife and I enjoy trying new restaurants around our region, not minding to drive a while for a good experience. It just happened that we discovered the Old Log Cabin restaurant a year or so ago and have returned several times. Over time we've been trying to replace our former favorite, The Vineyard in Anoka, and haven't been able... More

If you eat here you get a lot of home Cooking. Very Homey old style eatery. The atmosphere is like a Local Pub that people wait in line to Enjoy.

I also like the cabin steak dinner. It's a god piece of meat with potatoes any stile,I get the fried mushrooms piled... More

We have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. It's a great local place; love the log cabin decor and food. It could be busy on a weekend, but go early, it's worth it. The service has always been top notch, with friendly, efficient servers. The steaks and fish & seafood are especially delicious, as are the home made... More
