Dinner was Cod, either deep fried or broiled, all you can eat. Hot, tasty and a bit greasy, but that's deep fried fish. We enjoyed our meal and will definitely go back. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. We were a little early just before the dinner rush, so we were served very quickly

My wife and I have dined here several times in the year. Always enjoyable. The Saturday and Sunday prime rib dinner is always a good bet. The walleye dinner offers two perfectly broiled fillets and is one of my favorites. The onion rings are large and very very good...The salad is fairly mundane with iceberg lettuce, 1 baby carrot, 1... More

My husband and I went here for Dinner on a Monday night. We were able to sit on their patio. The service was a little slow, but the staff were very friendly. The food was very good and the bloody marys were also great. Its a great place to stop for just a beer or a whole meal. We have... More

Went on a Saturday with a group of 12. They had no allergy menu and I have to eat gluten free. Most places are still willing to work with you if they don't have a allergy menu but not here. Waitress said she was busy and didn't have time to read labels for me. My group ate their meals while... More

We love the Old Log cabin. Very quaint inside, and a very small bar, but good for appetizers and Bloody's. In the dining room, the sirloin tips are awesome, and so is the Broasted Chicken! We've been here often, and love the great wait staff!

This was in years past an excellent place for lunch or dinner. I must admit I am disappointed in the decline of the quality of the food here. There are better places to chose from now and I would say that is to be the case. The food was quite bland and the baked potato was under cooked. i would... More

I love their ribs. Come to find out they only have them on Fridays. Same for their beer cheddar soup. This past time we went for dinner on Mother's Day. I ordered the sirloin tips. I asked for medium-rare. They came medium-well and tough to chew. The gravy with onions and mushrooms were good. Kids like the fish and chips... More

It's your average restaurant. Nothing special, the food is average which was surprising because we thought being a dinner restaurant it would be above average. Sadly we were wrong. It's got a cool log cabin atmosphere, but it's real tight quarters basically bumping elbows with other customers while eating. Decent food, but nothing above average.

This is a great local restaurant. The staff is wonderful to the point of always greeting us and often remembers what we like to drink; the wonderful bloody mary! The food is very good and they have great weekly specials. We prefer to sit it the bar area; it is very cozy and warm. Highly recommend!
