I stopped by the Old Log Cabin for dinner after hearing good reviews from family members about it. I sat at the bar and ordered the prime rib dinner. It was pretty good. Not great but just OK. I don't think I'd go out of my way to go back there. Seems like a convenient place to go if you... More

The food is always fresh, hot and wonderful. Service is outstanding. As you are sitting at the table and your looking around at other peoples food. Everything looks good and tasty. My husband is in a wheel chair and it is very easy for him to move around in there. I love to eat here-

I had dinner here with my business colleagues and we had an overall good experience. The waitstaff was very friendly and accommodating. Nicely done. The restaurant has a nice assortment of beers on tap and the menu has a nice variety of foods to choose from. We had fried pickles as appetizers and fried mushrooms ,both choices very good. For...

This is a classic in Forest Lake. If you have anyone from out of town I would say this is typical MN food! I have only had 1 bad experience but, otherwise their food is always delicious

Great food and good prices. Feels like you are in a cabin. Come about 15 minutes before you have to eat as there may be a short wait. One of our favorite places near home.

Charming, old atmosphere. Clean, fabulous food, fun wait staff plus, service always good. Broasted chicken is excellent and Bloody Mary's up there with the best! Don't forget to order the bread pudding, yummy and I don't even like bread pudding.

I wanted to be in love with this place so much. We bought a lakehouse within walking distance and I wanted to make this my go to dinner spot for the family. Unfortunately every visit had been less wonderful than the last. The place is adorable. Cool antiques on the walls and such. But the food is really run of... More

What can I say, I stop here whenever I visit MN, the food is worth it and very reasonably priced. This time we ordered the fish and chips and were not disappointed. It was excellent! I enjoy eating here and the wait staff is always friendly and helpful! Please stop by and try them if you are anywhere near the... More
